Details

With a 47.3-million-pixel CMOS sensor the S1R is the world’s highest resolution full frame mirrorless camera, and offers images of unprecedented quality exhibiting exceptional detail, rich graduation and superior colour reproduction.

Powered by a new Venus Engine, the LUMIX S1R incorporates a high-speed, high-precision AF system ensuring the camera meets the exacting demands of professional photographers in all shooting situations. To capture the decisive moment, the photographer frames the image using the world’s highest resolution* electronic viewfinder with unrivalled clarity via a 5.76-million-dot OLED display.

Built around the wide diameter L-Mount the LUMIX S1R is designed to provide uncompromising image quality by combining best-in-class detail resolution and photographic control, with outstanding image stabilisation and advanced video recording.

Ground Breaking Image Detail.

The detail gathering ability of the full-frame 47.3-million-pixel CMOS-sensor (36 x 24 mm) is boosted by absence of a low pass filter, ensuring the finest textures in any scene will be captured accurately.

New aspherical micro lenses over each pixel improve the light-gathering abilities of the sensor so low noise levels are maintained at high ISO settings. The LUMIX S1R offers an ISO range of up to ISO 25.600, making it ideal for working in low light conditions.

For situations demanding greater resolution than 47.3-million-pixels, photographers can create incredible 187-million-pixel images using the camera’s High Resolution Mode. This feature combines information recorded in eight exposures that are taken as the Body I.S. system makes adjustments to the sensor position. The result is a 16.736 x 11.168-pixel RAW-file bursting with information. A feature of the High Resolution Mode is the option to supress motion blur.

Advanced Image Stabilisation.

The 5-axis Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) system compensates for the effects of camera shake to make shutter speeds of up to 5.5-stop slower than usual safe to use. Combined with the 2-axis O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) in the LUMIX S Series lenses the Dual I.S. 2 system increases the level of compensation to 6-stop, and works to eliminate the effects of a wide variety of camera movement types in both still and video photography. Making use of more sophisticated technology, vibration measurements are taken not only from a gyrosensor but also using information from the image sensor itself and from an accelerometer sensor in the camera.

To help photographers remove sources of camera shaking, an I.S. Status Scope has been added that displays a graphic interpretation of vibration.

High-Speed Precision Focusing.

Combining contrast detection and Panasonic’s unique DFD technology with ultra-fast processing creates a focusing system that provides both speed and precision. To achieve extremely fast and accurate focusing, the Venus Engine, CMOS sensor and new LUMIX S lenses communicate at up to 480 fps allowing the system to react in 0.08 seconds. The autofocus works with as little light as remarkable -6 EV.

Focus acquisition and tracking are enhanced with Advanced Artificial Intelligence Technology that detects humans, cats, dogs and birds. Identifying the subject helps the system anticipate movement patterns and allows the autofocus to keep tracking the subject even when its back is turned. Face, eye and pupil detection ensure that portraits are focused correctly.

For fast-moving situations the LUMIX S1R is capable of shooting at a rate of 9 fps in AFS or 6 fps with continuous focusing. The 6K Photo mode allows bursts of 18-million-pixel JPEG images at 30 fps, while 4K Photo offers sequences at 30 or 60 fps with 8-megapixel resolution.

High Resolution Viewfinder and High Quality Displays.

The world’s highest resolution electronic viewfinder provides photographers with unrivalled clarity via a 5.76-million-dot OLED display. The Real View Finder offers refresh rates of up to 120 fps and a virtually non-existent lag of just 0.005 seconds for smooth and realistic tracking of motion while panning with moving subjects. The display resolution, matched with a 10.000:1 contrast ratio, ensures a very clear and detailed view. The finder magnification can be adjusted from 0.78x to 0.74x or 0.7x for the comfort of the photographer.

The camera’s 3.2 inch touchscreen features 2.1-million-dot resolution and is mounted on a triaxial tilt rear monitor that allows it to flip out for low or high angled viewing in both portrait and landscape orientation. Night Mode, Live View Boost and illuminated buttons help those working in dark conditions and the camera’s top plate offers largest-in-class back-lit status LCD to keep the photographer informed of important shooting settings at a glance.

Class Leading Video.

While developed primarily for outstanding photography the LUMIX S1R is capable of advanced video recording in 4K resolution at up to 60/50p. High-Speed Video allows 2x slow motion at 60 fps in 4K, and settings down to 6x slow motion in Full HD with frame rates of up to 180 fps. The signal can be recorded in camera on SD or XQD or externally via the HDMI Type A port. Line-input is supported by a 3.5 mm microphone socket while audio can be monitored using the 3.5 mm headphone port. Advanced audio quality can be achieved using the DMW-XLR1 microphone adapter in the hot shoe with professional microphones and XLR input sources.

Designed to Meet Professional Expectations.

Developed for professional photographers, the LUMIX S1R has been built to withstand heavy use with magnesium alloy die-cast front and rear panels and sealing at every joint, dial and button. The camera is resistant to dust, splashes and operates at temperatures as low as -10°C.

The shutter unit is designed to endure 400,000 actuations. It allows mechanically driven exposure times as short as 1/8000 sec to ensure the capture of fast-moving subjects even using open aperture settings of fast lenses in the bright sunshine. The external flash can be synchronized with the industry’s fastest shutter speed of 1/320 second.

The control buttons and dials are located based on an ergonomic study to enable the user to concentrate on shooting. The adoption of an 8-directional joystick and refined UI (User Interface) also supports quick operation during shooting. A lock lever prevents unintentional operation and the user can choose which functions to lock.

Photographers can also protect their work by having the camera automatically add their personal details and copyright information to Exif data as pictures are recorded. Double memory card slots are provided for SD (UHS-II) and XQD*3 media, and compatibility with CFexpress is due in the near future.

Creative Control Made Easy.

For the individual look, in-camera controls provide the photographer with great flexibility in the way the JPEGs are recorded. Each photo style can be adjusted and new ones can be created and saved. A Flat option produces JPEGs with flat contrast and saturation as a flexible starting point for post-processing.

New photo styles include HLG Photo Modes (Hybrid Log Gamma) for vibrant high dynamic range pictures that retain extreme highlight detail suitable for display on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. Images taken with the HLG Modes can be saved as HSP files in stunning 8K resolution, as well as in JPEG and RAW formats.

When shooting portraits the new AWBw white balance setting creates an attractive moderate red tint, and a new Highlight Weighted Light Metering Mode prioritises the retention of detail in the brightest areas of the picture.

New panoramic aspect ratios add extra creative possibilities, with 65:24 Film Panorama and 2:1 wide frame formats offering exciting dimensions at the shooting stage.

Connectivity and Remote Shooting

The LUMIX S1R is compatible with LUMIX Tether software that allows remote control of the camera over USB from a PC, as well as live view streaming and direct transfer of pictures to a PC as they are recorded.

LUMIX Sync is a new smartphone app for iOS/Android devices that enables remote control of the camera and photo transfer from the camera to the phone/tablet.

Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 enables a constant connection with a smartphone or tablet with minimum power consumption, as well as allowing camera settings to be shared between multiple LUMIX S1R bodies. Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) in addition to 2.4GHz (IEEE802.11b/g/n) provides a secure and faster connection to smartphones/tablets for remote control and image/video transfer.
