Switching away from Apple OS to a Windows-based computer is definitely scary. That was the case when I was left without a choice after updating my MacOS to the latest Mojave and it completely wiped my computer. This problem alone would probably not be enough to force me to make that switch. However, when I found that Apple was not going to release the new Drivers that are necessary for the Nvidia graphics cards to operate with Mojave, that was the last straw. At this point I was not able to get any work done if I could not use my Nvidia Titan-X graphics card. Once I found out that my graphics cards was interchangeable between mac and pc, the next step was easy.
We’re covering specs and features of the new announcement of the Panasonic LUMIX S1 & S1R full-frame camera. For further details from this new release check out my the blog post for these cameras at ifilmmaker.tv/panasonic-lumix-s1-s1r.
Here are some exciting news! Panasonic has just announced the development of two full frame mirrorless cameras. The S1 & S1R. Now is it me or does it seem like every line of camera needs to have an “R” version for it. Just thinking out loud. So back to the cameras. The Panasonic S1 will feature a 24MP sensor as the S1R will have a whooping 47MP sensor. Both cameras will have Leica’s L mount. Both Panasonic and Sigma have said said that they will be releasing lenses specific to this mount.
Specifics are scarce but Panasonic says both cameras will be weather-sealed and will feature ‘high resolution’ electronic viewfinders. Both feature top-plate settings LCDs and feature both an XQD and SD card slot. They include the dual-axis tilting rear LCD panels that Fujifilm has used on its recent high-end models.
Panasonic has also announced that they will be introducing three new. These lenses are a 50mm F1.4, a 24-105mm zoom and a 70-200mm 2.8. Panasonic did mention that they will have more than ten lenses before the end of 2020.
Both the S1 and S1R will be including Dual IS, which basically means that both, the camera and and lens, will work together to provide even greater image stabilization than either way can do one it’s own.
Both cameras will use Panasonic’s Depth-from-Defocus system for autofocus. What this basically means is that the camera communicates well with the lens to determine better focusing attributes.
At face value, the S1 and S1R seem like fantastic competitors for the newly released Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7 & Z6 and others. I am very excited to see these two cameras in action. Looking at these specs,
and the statement’s made by Panasonic, really excites me to see the overall market and how they’re constantly pushing to innovative technology to put int he hands of lower budget filmmakers. I say this not even knowing the price of these releases. However, take my own opinion with a grain of salt. All and all, these will make a great addition to the market of videographers, and filmmakers.
LUMIX S1R will have full frame 47MP sensor.
LUMIX S1 will have full frame 24MP sensor.
Both cameras will have identical bodies.
Both cameras will be capable or recording 4K in 50p/60p.
Both cameras will use the newly announced L-Mount which will use current Leica lenses and upcoming Panasonic and Sigma lenses.
New Dual I.S image stabilization works with both sensor and lens stabilization – first full frame mirrorless cameras tooffer dual I.S.
Dual memory card slots for XQD cards and SD cards.
