BEST FULL FRAME PHOTO/VIDEO
"The S1 doubles as a 24.2MP still camera with very fast AF speed and tracking performance and a pro-style full-frame video camera. It delivers 4K 60p video with full-pixel readout of signals in 4K 30p/25p and complies with 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording and 4K 60p HDMI output plus V-Log. All that adds up to video performance and capabilities that have high appeal to content creators. The S1 incorporates a 5-axis Body IS image stabilization that, when used with S-series lenses, delivers 6-stop compensation.. For stills, the S1 offers a High Resolution mode that can be used to create 96MP images, thanks to the new Venus image high-speed signal processing capabilities. The camera also features a 1/8000 second top shutter speed with flash sync as high as 1/320 second."
Camera Grand Prix 2019
Camera of The Year
"This is one of the company’s first 35 mm full-frame mirrorless models, launched along with LUMIX S1. Excellent all in all, in functionality and operability, appealing to users’ sensibility. LUMIX S1R symbolizes Panasonic’s strenuous efforts made through the years since LUMIX G1 was released in 2008 as the world’s first mirrorless model (Camera Grand Prix 2009 Editors Award winner)... Many of the Selection Committee highly appreciated the degree of perfection and ambition displayed on this model."
