The Lumix 24-70mm f/2.8 feels like the missing puzzle piece that we have all been waiting for in the L-mount line up. It’s constant aperture, fast auto-focus and sharp images make it a must-have for any pro shooting on the Lumix S1 Series cameras, the Leica SL system or on a Sigma FP. We went out with Lumix Ambassador, Todd White and got to see it in action on a real-life client shoot.
DPreview tested the S1H and concludes:
The S1H brings the features and feel of Panasonic’s GH series to the L-mount full-frame system. It’s a compact and affordable package if judged according to the standard of its broadcast-grade footage. The rolling shutter figures are worth being conscious of, and the autofocus isn’t as impressive as the rest of the camera, but overall it’s a superb video tool that will address a wide range of needs.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has now officially switched over to the S1H and the video on top is his first crappy 🙂 attempt to shoot with it! He writes:
I decided to make this video mainly to try the new (wouldn’t consider it new anymore) Panasonic Lumix S1H, which I was really psyched to shoot with. I apologise for the shots that were grainy or over-exposed/under-exposed during this video.
One of the features that had me in the edge of my seat was the 6k 24fps 10-bit and the v-log feature that we’ve seen in the previous Panasonic Lumix cameras. I wouldn’t vlog much with this camera as it’s really bulky and heavy to carry in one arm. At the same time, it’s a good bicep workout for my arm!
Am I considering to switch? Yes, most likely. My feedback is positive and I really enjoyed playing around with this piece of gear.
