We all knew it was coming, but we never really knew for sure exactly when. May 31st came and went with nothing but crickets. But today seems to be a day for new gear announcements, so Panasonic has jumped on the bandwagon by announcing the new Panasonic Lumix S1H full-frame camera aimed at video shooters. For the stills folks, it’s a 24.2-megapixel L Mount mirrorless camera. But it’s video where things get interesting.
While it’s not the first, nor the cheapest, camera to shoot high-quality 6K footage, it is the first full-frame mirrorless camera to shoot 6K. And the Panasonic S1H shoots it at 24 frames per second and also offers 4:2:2 10-Bit 4K DCI and 4K UHD. But high-resolution video isn’t the only trick the S1H has up its sleeve.
