Tailored for Pro Filmmakers, Equipped for Much More
The Panasonic LUMIX S1H isn’t just the world’s first 6K camera. It also makes cine camera capabilities available in manageable, digital mirrorless camera form. Thanks to a newly developed 24.2MP full frame CMOS sensor the S1H produces stills and video of uncompromisingly high quality. Dual Native ISO technology delivers minimal noise from low through to high ISO settings (up to ISO 51200/204800 extended), beautifully rendering even the darkest areas of each frame.
Recording Formats & Frame Rates for Any Shoot
The Panasonic S1H equips you for any shoot in any industry, from TV to cinema. For maximum quality and flexibility the camera offers a full range of recording formats, including C4K/4K 60p/50p* 4:2:0 10-bit, C4K/4K 30p/25p 4:2:2 10-bit, 6K/24p 4:2:0 10-bit in 3:2, 5.9K/30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit in 16:9, anamorphic mode in 4K, and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma). Enjoy countless technical and creative possibilities with diverse frame rate options such as 2.5x slow motion (24p/60 fps) in C4K/4K; 7.5x super-slow motion (24p/180 fps) in Full HD; HFR (high frame rate); and VFR (variable frame rate) functionality, which supports overcranking and undercranking.

4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording/HDMI Output
With the Panasonic S1H, C4K/4K 30p/25p 4:2:2 10-bit can be recorded internally and output via HDMI, thus allowing the use of an external recorder. With around 128 times more info than 4:2:0 8-bit, this outstandingly colour-rich format can express more than a billion different colours. This gives you extraordinary latitude for colour adjustments in post-production, even making it possible to turn daylight scenes into nighttime ones.
14+ Stops of Dynamic Range
The Panasonic S1H comes pre-installed with V-Log and V-Gamut, which provide 14+ stops of dynamic range and a broad colour spectrum supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) capture. You’ll be amazed by how accurately the camera renders colours, with natural gradations from dark to light. Compatibility with Cinema VariCam ensures you can seamlessly edit your S1H footage with VariCam camera footage.
Inbuilt Stabilisation & Unlimited Recording
Enjoy the freedom of unlimited video recording. In a world first among full frame digital single-lens mirrorless cameras, the S1H from Panasonic incorporates an internal fan. Usually reserved for professional cameras, this feature helps to disperse heat that would otherwise restrict your shooting time. Inbuilt image stabilisation, low vibration and ultra-quiet operation further enhance the camera’s performance to provide the steadiest, lowest noise recording possible.
Innovative Tilting & Articulating Monitor
Newly designed for the Panasonic S1H is a 3.2” rear display monitor offering the benefits of both a tilting and articulating screen. The monitor moves freely even when there’s a HDMI or USB cable plugged in to the camera, meaning you can easily check the camera monitor while using an external monitor or recorder. With 2.33-million-dot resolution and 1.5x more brightness than the previously brightest Panasonic camera screens, this offers exceptional visibility even in bright sunlight. The S1H also features a large status LCD displaying optimised photo and video info so you can quickly and easily monitor audio levels, time codes, which LUT is in use, and more.
Built to Endure
The Panasonic S1H has been built to withstand some of the most challenging shooting environments. Operable in temperatures as low as -10°C, the camera incorporates a highly durable, full die-cast magnesium alloy frame and extensive weather sealing providing dust-and splash-resistant properties.
