Panasonic Lumix S1R Body
he Panasonic LUMIX S1R camera incorporates a 47.3MP high resolution 35mm full-frame MOS sensor. It utilizes the new L-Mount standard, which boasts a well-balanced, large inner diameter and compact dimensions for a flange focus to realize optimum size and performance as a digital mirrorless camera system. It yields unprecedented image quality with high resolution, rich gradation and superior color reproduction. A high-speed, high-precision AF system based on advanced control technology over the lens, the sensor, and the new Venus Engine enable the user to capture the precise moment in the finest detail. The S1R also boasts industry-leading video recording performance (4K 60p/50p), intuitive control, a rugged design for heavy field use, durability, and expandability. The S1R is splash resistant and dust resistant but also operates down to -10 degrees Centigrade. The mirrorless cameras’ shutter unit is also durable for approximately 400,000 cycles. Camera performance, lightweight construction, and Dust/Splash/Freeze-Resistant Design are some of the features you’ll enjoy while shooting with the Panasonic LUMIX S Series Digital Mirrorless Cameras.
Panasonic has achieved a high-speed AF with its advanced control technology over the major devices - lens, sensor and imaging engine. The lens and sensor communicate at a maximum 480fps. It also boasts high speed burst shooting at 9fps(AFS) or 6fps(AFC). With its high subject tracking performance, the LUMIX S1R never loses the target subject. As a camera that excels in low-light shooting, it boasts -6EV luminance detection performance with Low Light AF thanks to the higher sensitivity and optimized tuning of the sensor. The face/eye detection technology makes it possible to capture people in crisp focus, the Eye AF even detects the pupil of the eye and precisely focuses on it for impressive portrait shooting. The S1R/S1 also incorporates Advanced AI Technology that detects specific subjects - humans and fast-moving animals and birds. The camera keeps tracking these subjects even when they turn their back to the camera.
The S1R supports professional use in videography by taking advantage of the stunning expression performance that a full-frame camera can offer. It records smooth 4K 60p/50p video and enables full-pixel readout of signals in 30p/25p to save truly beautiful footage. As a camera from Panasonic that has been overstepping the limit of video performance in digital cameras, a host of functions are available on the LUMIX S Series. The High-Speed Video lets users record slow-motion video in 4K (/50/48 fps maximum 2x slower in 30p) and FHD (180/150 fps, maximum 6x slower in 30p). V-Log recording profile is sold seperately.
The S1R uses sensor only (BIS) or sensor and lens based image stabilization (OIS). When using the 5-axis correcting Dual IS 2 (the combination of BIS and OIS) the S1R can achieve a potential of up to 5 stops of shake correction.
Double Card Slots
It is equipped with a double Memory Card slot compatible with SD (UHS-II) and XQD Memory Cards for high-speed, high-capacity continuous data recording. Users can flexibly choose the recording method from Relay Recording, Backup Recording or Allocation Recording using the double slots. It will also be compatible with CFexpress in the near future. The high-capacity battery can be quickly charged via USB PD (USB Power Delivery) using the bundled USB3.1 Type-C cable. And it also realizes high-speed data transfer.
Taking full advantage of its high-resolution sensor, the S1R provides a High-Resolution mode that faithfully reproduces precise details to be saved as beautiful, highly realistic JPEG/RAW still images. Eight consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor using the Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) mechanism and synthesized into a 187MP image via the new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing. This mode is suitable for taking natural landscapes or fine arts with delicate details. This magnificently high-resolution photo is ideal for landscape photography of stationary subjects using a tripod. However, it can also be used in situations where moving subjects are included in the scene, by switching the sub mode.
6K Photo Mode
6K PHOTO makes it possible to capture unmissable moments at 30 fps by extracting the frame with the best timing out of a 6K burst file (in 4:3/3:2 aspect ratio) to save as an approximate 18-megapixel equivalent high-resolution photo. The 4K PHOTO enables 60-fps high-speed captures in approximate 8-megapixel equivalent resolution. In 6K PHOTO /4K PHOTO, three exclusive modes can be chosen from depending on the situation; 6K Burst/4K Burst, 6K Burst (Start/Stop)/4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 6K Pre-burst/4K Pre-burst.
Built 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 makes the LUMIX S Series cameras not only splash resistant and dust resistant but also enables operation down to -10 degrees Centigrade. The shutter unit is also durable for approximately 400,000 cycles.
