- The whole camera is a great package, so far I'm pleased with everything about it
- none needed that I can see so far. Still need to get to know it fully...

The Panasonic S1R is the brands venture into the full-frame mirrorless market, packing a 47-megapixel full-frame sensor into the already widely recognised small bodies of the Lumix range you can expect high-quality craftmanship from the Panasonic S1R.
The worlds 1st mirrorless full-frame camera with 4K 60P/50P video built in, as well as being the world first full-frame camera with dual image stabilization.
First plugged at Photokina 2018, the LUMIX S1 and S1R are Panasonic's venture into the full-frame mirrorless market. They are the world’s first mirrorless full frame cameras to feature Dual Image Stabilisation as well as 4k 60P/50P video.
The S1R is constructed with a 47.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. At the time of launch, this camera is Panasonic's claim to the industry's highest level of resolution.
The S1R was designed to give as much light as possible to the user. Enhanced light condensation is given through an aspherical lens on the sensor. High-resolution images and powerful light condensation are given by an 'on-chip' microlens and highly concentrated incoming light onto the photodiode. A high spec Venus Engine renders images with awesome detail giving astonishing description in still and moving images.
Integrating its Body Image Stabilizer with 5.5-stop comensation power, the Lumix S couples the Body's 5 axis image stabiliser system with the 2 axis optical image stabiliser found in the Lumix S Lens series to give you 6 stop 5 axis Dual Image Stabilization. The 5-axis dual IS will counter any heavier movement which would not usually be manageable. This innovative design is of great benefit when shooitng in dificult settings and particularly with any telephoto shooting, in low lighting or when shooting one handed with 6-stop slower shutter speeds.
High-Resolution Mode gives you the option to take intensely high detailed images up to 187MP on the S1R and up to 96MP on the S1. Consecutively capturing 8 images automatically, the sensor is shifted using the body image stabilisation mechanism - this is then incorporated into a single RAW image file giving you huge resulting images with mind-boggling, impressive detail. Perfect for shooting landscapes in nature, or capturing the finer details in works of art. By switching the cameras sub-mode, the mode is also workable in scenes with moving subjects.
HLG Photo mode gives you a broad range of dynamic ways to reproduce light and shadows with great levels of natural contrast. HLG Photos can be transferred into HSP files with compressed high brightness signals. These images can then be viewed on Panasonic HLG 4K TV's using an HDMI cable or other HLG devices.
Shoot high-speed objects with the High Precision Shutter unit which provides maximum shutter speeds up to 1/80000 second and gives the ability to shoot with high-speed lenses with fully open apertures - even outside. Synchronise the external flash to work with shutter speeds at to a max of 1/320 second.
The Lumix S series cameras boast Super fast 0.8s Autofocus with incredible precision. With the lens and the sensor communicating at up to 480fps, the Lumix S series will combine contrast autofocus detection with DFD technology to give autofocus acquisition speeds of 0.08seconds.
The cameras perform outstandingly in low lit scenes. Thanks to heightened sensitivity and a finely tuned sensor, they boast -6EV luminance detection.
Advanced AI Technology will pick up on a range of detailed, specific subjects. The camera can detect and track humans and fast-moving animals even at changing angles.
Giving you the ability to capture 4k Video in 60p/50p plus a full-pixel readout of signals and a crop factor of 1.0x in 30p/25p will allow you to capture stunning video with no time limit in both Full-HD, 4K 30p/25p and High Dynamic Range recording. The S1 will comply with 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording, 4K 60p/50p HDMI output and V-Log with a software upgrade key (not included).
High speed video capture will record slow motion video in 4K (max. 60 fps / 50fps) and FHD (max. 180 fps / 150fps).
With the largest in class Real Viewfinder, these cameras hold the title (at launch) for the world's highest 5,760k-dot resolution. They feature a 0,78x magnification ratio which is adjustable to 0.7x or 0.74x for varying styles and environments. A high speed, precise OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) for the LVF gives a clear display at a switchable 60 fps / 120 fps with a high-speed response and a minimum time lag of under 0.005 sec plus 10,000:1 levels of high contrast which will give you the perfect view of your subject.
With a Leica L-Mount, the S1 and S1R have been launched with 3 new lenses. While all LUMIX S lenses will be made focusing on professional standards, those marked PRO are built to push the boundaries even further with optical performance.
Covering a broad range of photography styles, the new lenses are as follows:
Panasonic is committed to designing and developing ten or more lenses, with a focus on “LUMIX S PRO” models, by 2020
Built to last, the S1 and S1R are carefully constructed with the heavier user in mind. Built from a magnesium alloy full die cast to the front and rear frame, the structure will withstand heavy usage. Sealed across all key elements - every dial button and joint are carefully crafted to be dust and splash resistant. The camera has also been tested to work at temperatures as low as -10° Celcius. The cameras are built with an estimated shutter life of approx. 400,000 cycles.
A Dual Memory Card Slot gives compatibility for SD Memory Cards (UHS-II) plus XQD Memory cards giving fast a great capacity to store your data. Plans of future compatibility with CFexpress are also on the horizon from Panasonic.
