Panasonic Lumix S, Lumix S1R announced
It’s Photokina 2018 this week and it’s raining camera reveals and releases. One of the key manufacturers at the event is Panasonic, and they just introduced a new camera series in the form of the Lumix S. The first members of the series are the Lumix S and Lumix S1R. This is Panasonic’s first foray into full frame mirrorless cameras.
Leading the pair is the Lumix S1R. It features a 47MP 35mm full-frame image sensor and image processing engine, support for 4k 60 and 50fps video recording, Dual Image Stabilization, a double slot for XQD memory cards and SD cards, and a rugged triaxial tilt LCD. It will also come with Leica’s L-mount for easy access to L-mount type lenses.
The Lumix S1, on the other hand, has all of the aforementioned features of its siblings except it will come with a 24MP sensor. Panasonic is promising a swift expansion of compatible lenses for the Lumix S, claiming they’ll be developing over ten by 2020. Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.
