Boasting a high-performance 47.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor, Venus Engine and Three-dimensional Colour Control, Panasonic’s Lumix S1R renders images of class-leading resolution and astoundingly realistic detail. The camera’s wide dynamic range preserves detail throughout, from the darkest of shadows to the brightest of highlights. Astonishing low light performance, with -6 EV autofocus and minimal noise even at the highest ISO values, makes this a capture tool for all scenarios.
The Lumix S1R’s OLED Real View Finder is the largest in its class and features the world’s highest EVF resolution at 5.76 million dots. 0.78x magnification (switchable to 0.7x or 0.74x to accommodate different shooters and situations), smooth 60 fps/120 fps (switchable) display, low (<0.005 second) lag, and high (10,000:1) contrast combine to approximate human vision.
Coupling 5-axis Body Image Stabilisation with Lumix S Series lenses’ 2-axis Optical Image Stabiliser, the Lumix S1R delivers an exceptional 5.5 to 6 stops of shutter speed compensation. This provides increased sharpness even in low light conditions, or while shooting one-handed or with a telephoto lens.
Ideal for landscape, architecture, commercial and fine art photography, High Resolution mode utilises sensor-shift technology to produce a single, intricately detailed RAW image from eight consecutively shot images. The result is ultra-high detail (up to 187MP) photos, which can be turned into large-scale prints.
Create vibrant yet nuanced HDR images and brilliantly capture lights, from glaring sunlight to glittering stars, using HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) Photo Mode. To truly appreciate the colour and detail, you can then view these as HSP files on the latest HDR TVs.
With advanced communication between lens, sensor and processing engine, the Lumix S1R lets no moment escape you. Featuring contrast detection with Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology, the S1R’s AF system is brilliantly fast and precise. Eye and face tracking ensure outstandingly sharp portraits, while Advanced AI Technology auto-detects specific subjects—both humans and fast-moving animals including birds, canines and felines—even while the subject is turned away.
A maximum shutter speed of 1/800 sec (and an industry-leading sync speed of 1/320 sec with the separately sold external flash) enables you to capture fast movement and shoot with wide apertures in bright conditions. Burst shooting (9 fps in AFS or 6 fps in AFC) delivers 6K or 4K photos in 18MP or 8MP resolution, respectively.
With the Lumix S1R you can record stunning video footage in a variety of resolutions and frame rates, from 4K 60p/50p to slow motion in 4K (max. 60 fps/50fps) or full HD (max. 180 fps/150fps). The camera is XLR microphone 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.
Designed for professionals, the Lumix S1R is built to endure heavy use and maximise user ease. A full die-cast front/rear magnesium alloy frame and sealing at all joints, buttons and dials provides remarkable robustness and dust, splash and freeze resistance down to -10°C.
A 3.2”, 2.1 million-dot display monitor features touch control and a durable triaxial tilt mechanism for increased functionality and flexibility. At the top of the camera, a largest-in-class status LCD screen lets you check settings at a glance. A firm yet comfortable grip, ergonomic layout, eight-directional joystick, illuminated buttons, and refined interface further facilitate shooting.
Dual memory card slots (one UHS-II SD card-compatible and one XQD card-compatible, and upgradable in future to CFexpress) allow for high speed, high-capacity, continuous recording of data.
