High Resolution, High Sensitivity:

The LUMIX S1 full frame mirrorless camera uses a 24.2-million-pixel CMOS sensor (35.6 x 23.8 mm) that provides a wide dynamic range and excellent signal to noise ratios at high ISO settings. Efficient pixel design, combined with the high-powered Venus Engine processor, allows standard ISO settings to reach ISO 51.200.

When extra resolution is needed, a High Resolution Mode can be used to create images with a staggering 96 million pixels. The mode combines information recorded in eight exposures that are taken as the Body I.S. system makes tiny off-set adjustments to the sensor position. The result is a 12.000 x 8.000 pixel RAW-file bursting with information. A feature of the High Resolution Mode is the option to supress motion blur.

Dual I.S. 2 for Incredible Shake Compensation:

The 5-axis Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) system compensates for the effects of camera shake to make shutter speeds up to 5.5-stop slower than usual safe to use. Combined with the 2-axis O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) in the LUMIX S Series lenses, this Dual I.S. 2 system increases the level of compensation to 6-stop, and works to eliminate the effects of a wide variety of camera movement types in both still and video photography. Making use of sophisticated technology, vibration measurements are taken not only from a gyrosensor but also using information from the CMOS itself and from an accelerometer sensor. To help photographers remove sources of camera shaking, an I.S. Status Scope has been added that displays a graphic interpretation of vibration.

High-Speed Precision Focusing:

Combining contrast detection and Panasonic’s unique DFD technology with ultra-fast processing creates a focusing system that provides both speed and precision. To achieve extremely fast and accurate focusing, the Venus Engine, CMOS sensor and new LUMIX S lenses communicate at up to 480 fps allowing the system to react in 0.08 seconds. The autofocus works with as little light as remarkable -6 EV.

Focus acquisition and tracking is enhanced with Advanced Artificial Intelligence Technology that detects humans, cats, dogs and birds. Identifying the subject helps the system anticipate movement patterns and allows the autofocus to keep tracking the subject even when its back is turned. Face, eye and pupil detection ensure that portraits are focused correctly.

For fast moving situations the LUMIX S1 is capable of shooting at a rate of 9 fps in AFS or 6 fps with continuous focusing. The 6K Photo mode allows bursts of 18-million-pixel JPEG images at 30 fps, while 4K Photo offers sequences at 30 or 60 fps with 8-megapixel resolution.

High Resolution Viewfinder and High Quality Displays:

The world’s highest resolution electronic viewfinder provides photographers with unrivalled clarity via a 5.76-million-dot OLED display. The Real View Finder offers refresh rates of up to 120 fps and a virtually non-existent lag of just 0.005 seconds for smooth and realistic tracking of motion while panning with moving subjects. The display resolution, matched with a 10.000:1 contrast ratio, ensures a very clear and detailed view. The finder magnification can be adjusted from 0.78x to 0.74x or 0.7x for the comfort of the photographer.

The camera’s 3.2 inch touchscreen features 2.1-million-dot resolution and is mounted on a triaxial tilt rear monitor that allows it to flip out for low or high angled viewing in both portrait and landscape orientation. Night Mode, Live View Boost and illuminated buttons help those working in dark conditions and the camera’s top plate offers largest-in-class back-lit status LCD*1 to keep the photographer informed of important shooting settings at a glance.

Professional Video Features:

The LUMIX S1 offers filmmakers exceptional video quality and a wide range of tools to take full creative control of their footage. 4K-video is offered at 60/50p, while full pixel readout is achieved at 30p for exceptionally clean and detailed images. With the full width of the sensor being used, the focal length of lenses is retained and the creative possibilities of extreme shallow depth of field are available. The camera offers a variety of gamma curves, including industry standards such as Cinelike D/V and Like709. To shorten post-processing work, a new flat mode with less contrast and saturation for versatile use is offered. The new Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) profile allows recording in an even wider dynamic range with rich colours (Like2100) to mimic the abilities of the human eye.

LUMIX S1 allows video recording up to 4K 60/50p 4:2:0 in 8 Bit directly to SD- or XQD-card. 4:2:2 colour sampling can be put out through HDMI. Panasonic will provide a software key to unlock the option to record 4K 60/50p 4:2:2 10 Bit via HDMI-output and 30p/25p/24p in 4:2:2. 10 Bit internally within 2019. This upgrade will also bring V Log with industry leading dynamic range to the LUMIX S1. While time-limitations apply to 4K/60p and High-speed-footage, 4K/30p and Full HD can be recorded without a time limit. High Speed Video allows 2x slow motion at 60fps in 4K, and up to 6x slow motion in Full HD with frame rates of up to 180fps.

Line-input is supported by a 3.5 mm microphone socket while audio can be monitored using the 3.5 mm headphone port. Advanced audio quality can be achieved using the DMW-XLR1 microphone adapter in the hot shoe with professional microphones and XLR input sources.

Designed to Meet Professional Expectations:

Developed for professional photographers, the LUMIX S1 has been built to withstand heavy use with magnesium alloy die-cast front and rear panels and sealing at every joint, dial and button. The camera is resistant to dust, splashes and operates at temperatures as low as -10°C. The shutter unit is designed to endure 400,000 actuations. It allows mechanically driven exposure times as short as 1/8000 sec to ensure the capture of fast moving subjects even using open aperture settings of fast lenses in the bright sunshine. The external flash can be synchronised with the industry’s fastest shutter speed of 1/320 second..

The control buttons and dials are located based on an ergonomic study to enable the user to concentrate on shooting. The adoption of an 8-directional joystick and refined UI (User Interface) also supports quick operation during shooting. A lock lever prevents unintentional operation and the user can choose which functions to lock. Photographers can also protect their work by having the camera automatically add their personal details and copyright information to Exif data as pictures are recorded. Double memory card slots are provided for SD (UHS-II) and XQD media, and compatibility with CFexpress is due in the near future.

Creative Control Made Easy:

For the individual look, in-camera controls provide the photographer with great flexibility in the way the JPEGs are recorded. Each photo style can be adjusted and new ones can be created and saved. A Flat option produces JPEGs with flat contrast and saturation as a flexible starting point for post-processing. New photo styles include HLG Photo Modes (Hybrid Log Gamma) for vibrant high dynamic range pictures that retain extreme highlight detail suitable for display on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. Images taken with the HLG Modes can be saved as HSP files in stunning 8K resolution, as well as in JPEG and RAW formats.

When shooting portraits the new AWBw white balance setting creates an attractive moderate red tint, and a new Highlight Weighted Light Metering Mode prioritises the retention of detail in the brightest areas of the picture. New panoramic aspect ratios add extra creative possibilities, with 65:24 Film Panorama and 2:1 wide frame formats offering exciting dimensions at the shooting stage.

Connectivity and Remote Shooting:

  • Remote Shooting via LUMIX Tether
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • Wi-Fi 5GHz/ 2.4GHz

The LUMIX S1 is compatible with LUMIX Tether software that allows remote control of the camera over USB from a PC, as well as live view streaming and direct transfer of pictures to a PC as they are recorded.

LUMIX Sync is a new smartphone app for iOS/Android devices that enables remote control of the camera and photo transfer from the camera to the phone/tablet.

Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 enables a constant connection with a smartphone or tablet with minimum power consumption, as well as allowing camera settings to be shared between multiple LUMIX S1 bodies. Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) in addition to 2.4GHz (IEEE802.11b/g/n) provides a secure and faster connection to smartphones/tablets for remote control and image/video transfer.

L-Mount:

The L-Mount was developed by Leica Camera to provide customers with a future-proof, flexible, robust and precise bayonet that will meet even the most demanding photographic requirements. After its initial launch in 2014 in the Leica T, the L-Mount has been continuously developed by Leica Camera and its partners, resulting in improved and quasi-new L-Mount technology.

For the widest possible variety of products, the diameter of the L-mount was put at a new dimenison of 51.6 millimeters, making it suitable not only for full-frame cameras but also for APS-C sensors. The small footprint of only 20 millimeters allows for a small distance between optics and sensor, making lenses much more compact – particularly useful for wide angle development. To withstand even the heaviest loads and to guarantee maximum safety for customers over many years of intensive use, camera bayonets become wear resistant Stainless steel and with four flange segments, which prevents tilting and ensures a particularly firm and flat fit of the lens. The standardised L-Mount contact strip ensures smooth communication between the electronic components in the lens and the camera, including the possibility of firmware updates for lenses, in order to react to technical developments and thus ensure full performance in the future. Currently, the Leica SL system in full format and the APS system with camera models Leica CL, TL2 and TLde use the lens mount. All the optics of the different systems can be operated without restrictions and without adapters on all cameras – here is already one of the many advantages that customers have through the unified bayonet.

Designed to incorporate an entire array of Panasonic technology refined over a century in the consumer electronics business and ten years developing Mirrorless cameras, the new S1 model will retain essential user-friendliness and robustness as tools for photography or videography by professionals.
