The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H is a well-rounded and durable camera that offers advanced feature sets for stills and video. Key features include:
6K24p, DCI 4K, and 4K UHD video capture
24.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor and Venus Engine
Five-axis sensor-shift image stabilization
Accepts L-mount lenses
24.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and Venus Engine. The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H’s 24.2MP MOS sensor is supported by an updated Venus Engine for impressive image quality, a fast 9 fps continuous shooting rate with AF-S, a 6 fps continuous shooting rate with AF-C, great low-light performance, and a 100-51,200 ISO range. The sensor and processor combine to enhance color reproduction and suppress noise levels throughout the camera’s sensitivity range.
L-Mount Alliance. This wide-diameter lens mount is a joint collaboration between Leica, Panasonic, and Sigma that’s focused on a line of premium cameras & lenses in a mirrorless format. At 51.6mm mount diameter and just 20mm flange distance, the L-mount is well-suited for fast-aperture full-frame optics with compact dimensions.
6K24p, DCI 4K, and 4K UHD Video. The Lumix S1H offers 6K24p capture, 16:9 5.9:30p, and both DCI and UHD 4K60p internal recording with 4:2:2 10-bit color in MP4 format with a 1.09x crop (via pixel binning). It’s also capable of Full HD 1080p capture at 119.88p and Anamorphic 4K at 48.00p. It features clean HDMI output to an external recorder, a built-in stereo mic for quick audio capture, and 3.5mm mic and headphone jacks for advanced audio recording and monitoring needs. Please note that for 6K and 4K capture, you must use an SD memory card that’s UHS-I Class 3 or faster, like the Sony 128GB SF-G Tough Series UHS-II SDXC.
Post-Production Optimization. The S1H has a pair of gamma settings suited to capturing a wide dynamic range. This camera comes with V-Log pre-installed. It lets you capture a flat, neutral gamma curve that’s well-suited for grading. You can use the High Dynamic Range mode and Hybrid Log Gamma to record greater shadow and highlight details.
6K and 4K Photo. The DC-S1H gives you three still-shooting modes for recording continuous 3:2 or 4:3 8MP stills at a 60 or 30 fps shooting rate or 18MP stills at a 30 fps shooting rate. Burst mode lets you continuously record, Pre-Burst mode records images one second before and one second after you press the shutter button so you get 60 frames to choose from, while Burst (S/S) mode lets you select the frame you want from recorded video footage. This camera can also record stills in 65:24 and 2:1 panoramic formats.
Light-Speed Autofocus. This contrast-based autofocus system uses Panasonic’s “Depth from Defocus” technology to provide extremely fast speeds. “Advanced AI technology” assists in subject tracking of fast-moving subjects, while the same AI system is used when shooting portraits for face/eye detection. And if you’re shooting in low light, the DFD autofocus system works down to -6 EV. You also get full-time manual focusing for added precision.
Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization. This system uses five-axis sensor-shift stabilization for up to six stops of correction. Mate the camera with a Panasonic lens that features Dual IS 2 (a lens-based two-axis stabilization) to compensate for roughly 6.5 stops of camera shake, giving your hand-held shots utmost sharpness. Its High Resolution mode captures and compiles 8 separate exposures into a single 96MP RAW or JPEG file at 12000 × 8000 pixel resolution, but your subject must be static and the camera must be locked down on a tripod.
Built-In Electronic Viewfinder. The 5.76m-dot OLED integrated electronic viewfinder offers 100% coverage and encompasses the entire Adobe RGB color space, allowing extremely faithful color reproduction. It offers 0.78x configurable viewing magnification and a smooth 60 fps or 120 fps changeable refresh rate, 0.005-second lag, and 10,000:1 contrast ratio.
Rear and Top LCDs. You can use the 2.3m-dot 3.2-inch rear touchscreen LCD for image composition, review, playback, and menu navigation. Its free-tilting design lets you work from low and high angles, even when you’re shooting in vertical orientation. Live View Boost mode was designed for composing images in low light, while Night Mode also helps you work in the dark by lowering the backlight intensity. A separate status LCD on top of the camera lets you quickly review shooting settings, even when the camera’s powered off.
Other Notable Features. The built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth provide wireless control and viewing options via the free Lumix Sync App. Images are recorded to SDHC/XC memory cards (remember, UHS-I Class 3 or faster for 6K and 4K video), and the rechargeable DMW-BLJ31 battery is rated for approximately 400 shots per charge when using the rear monitor, 380 shots per charge when using the EVF, and 1150 shots per charge when Power Save LVF mode is on.
