Want to capture amazing footage with your camera? Panasonic has just pulled the covers off the S1H, a new version from the S1 line-up that’s been specced up for professional video use and is capable of capturing 6K video.
Panasonic introduces the S1H…
Teased earlier this year, the S1H features a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor, enabling photographers to capture high resolution stills images, as well as that impressive video. In fact, Panasonic explains the S1H is the world’s first full-frame digital interchangeable lens system camera to enable 10-bit 60p 4K/C4K HEVC video recording when using an image area equivalent to Super 35mm.
Those wanting more resolution can film in 6K/24p, 5.4K/30p (3:2 aspect ratio) or 5.9K/30p (16:9 aspect ratio) to capture high quality footage. For those photographers who like to create epic slow motion sequences, the S1H features a Full HD 180fps mode, which captures 7.5x slow motion sequences.
The S1H will capture 14+ stops of Dynamic Range, which Panasonic says puts the full-frame mirrorless camera at almost the same dynamic range as the brand’s professional cinema cameras. The S1H body is weather resistant, can operate down to -10 degrees and the shutter mechanism has been rated for 400,000 cycles, making it suitable for professional use.
Photographers can make an instant back-up of their footage via the dual SD card slots and, thanks to the 5-axis Dual IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) system, the S1H will even offer up to 6.5-stops of compensation when paired with selected lenses – perfect when shooting in low light conditions. Panasonic has included the brand’s V-Log/V-Gamut and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) technology, which will help videographers when it comes to grading footage in post processing.

The S1H features a 3.2-inch vari-angle LCD to help set-up awkward high/low compositions and there are no time limits so footage can be continuously recorded. Expected to ship from September 19, the S1H will cost £3599/$3999.
