Panasonic has just announced Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6, a zoom lens designed for full frame L-mount cameras. With it zoom range and close focusing distance it will have you covered in all sorts of shooting situations. And with its relatively low price, it could be a perfect choice as the first lens you’ll ever buy.
Ever since the Panasonic S1 and S1R mirrorless cameras were announced at Photokina last year, there has been a lot of talk about their video capabilities. After all, Panasonic made the somewhat legendary GH5. And while rumours of a new “Cine Lumix” are on the horizon, it seems the S1 still has a trick or two up its sleeve.
The S1 offers a 4K/6K burst shooting mode. Essentially, what it does is shoot a video sequence from which you can extract still images. But what nobody seems to have noticed until now, is that this mode actually produces a 5184×3456 h.265 video at 200Mbps.
Panasonic has just announced a new compact, rugged Micro Four Thirds camera, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G95. It’s aimed primarily at vloggers, and amateur photographers and videographers. It’s a kind of a crossover between the GH5 and the G9, containing some of their features, but at a lower price. So let’s dive into the specs and take a closer look at the new camera from Panasonic.
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.
There’s been a lot of rumours and speculation over the past few months since Panasonic unveiled their alliance with Leica and Sigma at Photokina and briefly introduced us to their two new full-frame mirrorless cameras; the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R. Now, they’re finally here. Well, at least to pre-order. But here’s all the info, specs and capabilities.
Well, it’s (almost) official. The launch of the Panasonic S1 and S1R full-frame mirrorless cameras was expected in March, presumably, so they could tease them at The Photography Show, and then show them off properly at Photokina. Since Photokina was cancelled, however, Panasonic let out a new teaser letting us know to expect an announcement on January 31st (today).
It looks like UK retailers Park Cameras and CVP might have jumped the gun slightly, though, because, for a brief time, they listed the new cameras and various lens combos on their websites for pre-order, along with prices. Well, Park had prices, CVP didn’t.
At least, that’s what the latest rumours say. 43Rumors has put up a list of “confirmed” and possible specs for a potential upcoming full frame mirrorless camera from Panasonic. The specs do look very impressive, and quite logical given Panasonic’s reputation amongst filmmakers and video creators.
Well, this was unexpected. Panasonic is apparently going to announce their first full frame mirrorless camera this month, in only three weeks. Yes, a full frame Panasonic mirrorless camera. At least, that’s according to 4/3 Rumors. Apparently, the camera will be officially announced on September 25th, but if this is indeed true, I’ll bet a certain website will have leaks available before then.
