Panasonic S1H is a full-frame mirrorless camera designed specifically with videographers in mind.
It includes advanced video features such as 6K resolution, 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording, V-Log gamma, video scopes, anamorphic support and numerous small details a videographer would love. As a bonus, it’s also a very competent 24MP stills camera.
Panasonic has long been at the vanguard of mirrorless cameras aimed at videographers, and its popular GH-series of Micro Four Thirds cameras has consistently led the way with class-leading video performance.
It would be easy to assume that the S1H is simply an extension of the GH line into a full-frame body, and there’s certainly a bit of truth to that, but, as you’ll discover, the S1H is equally an extension of Panasonic’s highly regarded VariCam line of cinema cameras.
The full-frame 24.2MP CMOS sensor affords versatile performance to suit both video and stills, with a broad 14-stop dynamic range, sensitivity from ISO 100-51200, and adept processing to realize high color accuracy, responsive recording, and a broad array of video capabilities.
Using nearly the full sensor, 3:2-format 6K24p video recording is supported, along with 16:9 5.9K30p and both DCI and UHD 4K60p settings with internal 4:2:2 10-bit sampling. Inspired by broadcast cameras, the S1H also uses the updated sensor design to provide Dual Native ISO settings that prioritize either low noise or low sensitivity in order to realize imagery quality with greater color fidelity and reduced noise.
Variable Frame Rate (VFR) recording also permits using slow and quick motion effects and High Frame Rate (HFR) settings allow the use of higher frame rates in conjunction with 10-bit sampling. Additionally, V-Log has been pre-installed, and a Hybrid Log Gamma is also available for achieving greater detail when recording
