For those of you who seek high quality still shots AND high quality video recordings, the Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H is your "Buy 1, Get 2" super deal. This Lumix full frame mirrorless camera body is characterised by impressive video capabilities.
The S1H features a 24.2MP CMOS sensor and an updated Venus Engine to optimise its imaging capabilities for high sensitivity, a wide 14-stop dynamic range and flexible recording modes. The incorporation of Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing technologies in the sensor and process helps to bring about high resolution and definition, while Color Control enhances colour reproduction that is especially beneficial for highlights and shadows. The powerful processor suppresses noise level throughout the broad ISO 100 - 51200 sensitivity range and enables fast-resolution continuous shooting speeds up to 9 fps with AF-S or 6 fps with AF-C for 60 consecutive raw files or more. Furthermore, if required, a specialised High Resolution mode can be used to boost the effective resolution to 96MP via compositing sequential shots together. A 225-area Depth from Defocus (DFD) contrast-detection autofocus system achieves fast and accurate focusing and subject-tracking, benefitting both still and video recording modes. The available stabilisation system minimises the camera shake when working handheld by 6 stops for sharper shooting.
Distinguishing itself with high video capabilities, the S1H can utilise nearly the full frame of the sensor to record 10-bit 6K24p videos in 3:2 format, as well as 5.9K30p videos in 16:9 format. DCI and UHD 4K60p settings with 4:2:2 10-bit sampling are among the rest of the remarkably wide array of available formats to suit your recording needs and preferences. Drawing from Panasonic's broadcast cameras and taking full advantage of S1H's updated sensor design, Dual Native ISO heps to combine low noise and high sensitivity to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. Variable Frame Rate (VFR) adjustments enables slow and quick motion effects from 30x to -7.5x, while High Frame Rate (HFR) setting permits the use of higher frame rates with 10-bit sampling. In addition, pre-installed V-log benefits post-production colour grading, while High Dynamic Range, along with Hybrid Log Gamma, enables recording of greater details in both the shadow and highlight areas of a scene.
The imaging attributes of the S1H are complemented by its body design, which features an impressively high resolution 5.67-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a 3.2" 2.33m-dot tilt free-angle touchscreen LCD.
