Key functions for new LUMIX full frame mirrorless camera revealed at CES 2019

7th January 2019 - Following the development announcement at Photokina 2018, Panasonic has unveiled key features of the new LUMIX S full-frame mirrorless camera at CES 2019. The LUMIX S full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses will be available from the end of March 2019.*

A whole new style of photo expression with High Dynamic Range Still Photo: HLG Photo Mode

HLG Photo allows images to be shot with a wider dynamic range. Rich, precise colour expression as close as possible to visual memory is enabled by reproducing both glaring lights and dark shadows that were likely to be overexposed or underexposed.

HLG Photos are produced as an HSP file. The user can playback these vibrant images on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. It is also ideal for photo presentations by photographers.

High Resolution Mode: Stunning details with a realistic sensation

Taking advantage of the Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) mechanism, eight consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor. These eight images are synthesized into a single image by the new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing. Precise details are faithfully reproduced to be saved as a beautiful, highly realistic image. This mode is ideal for taking natural landscapes or fine art objects with delicate details.

In situations where the scene includes moving subjects, sub-options are available to suppress motion blur, enabling photographers to use this mode just like when they shoot in a normal photo shooting mode.
