Alongside the announcement of development for the new video-centric 6K S1H full frame mirrorless, Panasonic has also announced the firmware update (Firmware Key DMW-SFU2) for the Panasonic S1. This firmware is a paid upgrade and goes on sale in July 2019, offering a whole lot of features that video shooters have been asking for. Although, if you already own an S1, you can actually get it for free.
It’s been known for a while that Panasonic has been planning a paid upgrade for the Panasonic S1 mirrorless camera. And it wasn’t really unexpected, as they’ve done this before with the GH5. This upgrade adds some pretty significant video features to the S1, such as V-Log and 4:2:2: 10-bit video. It’s coming in July, but Panasonic hasn’t said how much it will cost yet.
