Lifelike Picture Quality
Capture images with stunningly lifelike detail, from the darkest of shadows to the brightest of highlights, using the Panasonic LUMIX S1 kit. This mirrorless camera incorporates a 24.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor, highly optimised Venus Engine and Three-dimensional Colour Control to deliver outstanding sharpness, clarity, dynamic range and colour reproduction. The LUMIX S1 excels in low light, detecting autofocus at -6 EV and exhibiting minimal noise even at the highest ISO settings.
Ultimate Stability & Sharpness
With the combined powers of 5-axis Body Image Stabilisation and LUMIX S Series lenses’ Optical Image Stabiliser, the LUMIX S1 offers 5.5-6 stops of shutter speed compensation. This provides exceptional stability for significantly sharper low-light, handheld and telephoto shooting.
Create amazingly detailed 96MP photos and large-scale prints using High Resolution mode. Utilising sensor-shift technology, this produces a single, intricately detailed RAW image from eight consecutively shot images – perfect for landscape, architecture, commercial and fine art photographers requiring the highest level of image quality.
New Styles of Photo Expression
Offering a wider dynamic range with more natural contrast throughout light and shadows, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) Photo Mode produces vibrant HDR images and brilliantly captures lights, from glaring sunlight to glittering stars. Play them back in their full, true-to-life splendour as HSP files on the latest HDR TVs.
Let No Moment Escape You
Utilising Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology, the LUMIX S1 delivers brilliantly fast, high-precision autofocus. Eye and face tracking allows you to capture outstandingly sharp portraits, with Advanced AI Technology quickly and accurately detecting specific subjects—both people and swift-moving birds or animals—even when they’re turned away. A 1/800 sec maximum shutter speed lets you snap fast movement and use wide apertures in bright conditions, while burst shooting (9 fps in AFS or 6 fps in AFC) delivers 6K or 4K photos in 18MP or 8MP resolution, respectively.
Outstanding Video Tools
The LUMIX S1 offers outstanding features for video professionals, including 4K 60p/50p and slow motion recording in 4K (up to 60 fps) and Full HD (up to 180 fps). With full-pixel readout and 1.0x crop factor in 30p/25p, you can film stunning footage without time limit* in both Full HD and 4K (30p/25p), in addition to HDR. The camera is XLR mic adapter-compatible and includes microphone and headphone jacks and a lockable HDMI Type A terminal, providing all the connectivity you need while recording in the field.
*Max. 29 min 59 sec in 4K 60p/50p until the SD card or battery is exhausted
Maximum Reliability & Usability
The LUMIX S1 from Panasonic is designed to endure heavy use and maximise user ease. Featuring a full die-cast magnesium alloy frame, the camera is dust, splash and freeze resistant down to -10°C. The large, 5.76 million-dot electronic viewfinder almost resembles human vision, while the 2.1 million-dot touch monitor features a durable triaxial tilt mechanism for increased functionality. A firm but comfortable grip, top-mounted status LCD, ergonomic layout, eight-directional joystick, illuminated buttons, and refined user interface further facilitate shooting.
