Cinematic Performance, Boundless Creativity

The LUMIX S1H is a full-frame mirrorless camera for film production, scaled to a hand-held design without compromising professional-level standards. It offers extensive recording modes and cinematic image quality to meet the high demands of today's creators. With superior functionality that slots effortlessly into the professional workflow, the S1H is also designed for active filming in the field when attached to a gimbal or drone.

Newly Designed Full Frame Sensor with Dual Native ISO

The LUMIX S1H gives you breathtaking image quality without compromise. By delivering ample light condensation per pixel, the 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor offers a wide dynamic range and sharp, natural expression even at high sensitivity settings. The S1H also equipped with Dual Native ISO sensitivity which offers the advantages of very high sensitivity for low-light shoots while suppressing noise levels. As such, the camera can switch from a standard sensitivity to this higher sensitivity with almost no discernible noise degradation. With 640 and 4000 base ISOs in V-Log, the S1H allows today's cinematographers phenomenal flexibility on set when they wish to capture more extreme lighting scenarios.

Multiple Formats and Aspect Ratios with Full Range of Video Recording Modes

The LUMIX S1H newly offers full-area 3:2 6K24p, C4K (4,096 x 2,160) and anamorphic modes. It the first time in the world, achieves video recording at 6K/24p and 5.9K/30p (3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratios respectively).* The various formats above can be encoded with superior HEVC compression or the rich tones of 4:2:2 10-bit. High quality data up to 4:2:2 10-bit can also be output via HDMI ontoan external video recorder when set to 10-bit recording mode. The HDMI output is enabled simultaneously with the internal recording. And as the filtering menu has been streamlined, it is now much easier and faster to find and select the precise mode you want.

V-log / V-Gamut with 14+ Stops of Dynamic Range

The S1H features V-Log / V-Gamut with a wider 14+ stops of dynamic range. This is compatible with the Cinema VariCam Look and precisely captures everything from shadows to highlights, as well as faithfully reproducing the color and texture subtleties of human skin. The V-Log View Assist enables you to view a simulation of the final look (hue, saturation and brightness) of your video image in camera using the Look Up Table (LUT) while you are shooting. With Look Up Table (LUT) installed on the camera, the video you record with V-Log can be modified to match the characteristics of your monitor display. The VariCam IDT for ACES can also be applied to footage shot on the S1H. 35 conversion LUTs and ar tistic looks for VariCam® cinema cameras and the AU-EVA1 can be downloaded from Panasonic's official web site.

Anamorphic Recording

If you are shooting with an anamorphic lens that compresses the image width to an almost unrecognizable extreme, the S1H camera allows you to view a simulation of the final ‘desqueezed’ CinemaScope format (2.39:1 or 2.35:1), in one of five magnification options, 1.3x, 1.33x, 1.5x, 1.8x or 2.0x, stretched out on the camera monitor. This lets you decide the composition you want, and better visualize the impact of the final project.

Non-stop Recording Supported by Industry First Heat Dispersing Fan Design

The S1H has unlimited video recording capabilit y for all recording modes within the recommended operating temperatures, (-10° C to 40° C). To dissipate the heat generated by recording non-stop, a highly-effective and independently operating fan is now included within the body. The film-maker can now concentrate on capturing every minute of the scene without the worry that recording may stop suddenly. The fan is designed for minimal vibration and low noise, operating in four modes to suit the type of shoot and shooting environment.

6.5-Stop 5 Axis Dual I.S.2

The S1H features powerful camera-shake suppression in the body. The 5-axis Body I.S. enables an accurate level of correction, even making it possible to use a 6.0-stop slower shutter speed.* Shake suppression is also highly effective even when a cine lens, anamorphic lens, or older lens is attached. Furthermore, 6.5-stop slower shutter speed** can be used thanks to 5-axis Dual I.S.2 stabilization when the Body I.S. is combined with the Optical I.S. of the LUMIX S series lenses. This compensates for even larger movements that were conventionally uncontrollable.

* Based on the CIPA standard (Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=50mm when S-X50 is used.)
** Based on the CIPA standard (Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=105mm when S-R24105 is used or focusing distance f=200mm when S-R70200 is used). Firmware must be updated to the latest version.

New Tilting 3.2-inch Free-angle Rear Monitor

This rear-mounted monitor is a touch-sensitive LCD with a superbly bright 2.33-million-dot high resolution that is still clearly visible in sunny outdoor conditions. The combination of a tilting and swivel mechanism makes unusual compositions and creative angle shots easy to frame. This also avoids the monitor becoming entangled in any connected HDMI or USB cables.

Snow

Double Memory Card Slot

The double memory card slot is compatible with SD Memory Cards (UHS-II / V90). Allocation Record mode allows you to specify the card slot to be used for recording different image formats. The extra card slot is also convenient for recording long videos or as a backup. Relay Recording mode relays recording to the other card slot after the first card runs out of free space during recording. Backup Recording mode* records the same data to the two cards.

* Cannot be used with AVCHD format.

5,760k dots Live View Finder

The Live View Finder baosts the world's highest 5,760k-dots resolution.* Adoption of a high-speed, high precision OLED for the LVF achieves smooth display at 60fps/120fps and high-speed response with minimum time lag of less than 0.005 sec.

Rugged Design

To be tough enough to withstand heavy field use, the main structure is composed of a magnesium alloy full die-cast front/rear frame. Robust construction and a sealing for every joint, dial, and button make the LUMIX S1R/S1 not only dust resistant and splash resistant but also operates down to -10 degrees Centigrade.* The shutter unit is also durable for approximately 400,000 cycles.

* Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

Unlimited Possibilities with L-Mount

Panasonic, Leica Camera and Sigma are set to offer a user-friendly solution that will allow photographer to "mix and match" any of the three manufactures' APS-C and full-frame camera with any lens from each other's product portfolios.The L-Mount thereby opens up an almost limitless spectrum of new creative possibilities.
