(L1) List of new S1-S1R features “under consideration”???

I got this rumor from a new source. I therefore rated it with a low “L1” ranking (20% chance this is correct). Anyway, interetsing to read and hopefully right 🙂

The source wrote:

Panasonic are looking at including the following features
on the new S1.

The feeling is they need to lead they way in terms of new features
if they wish professionals and in particular video shooters to adopt the
new L mount and switch from Canon or Sony FF cameras.
It’s believed Sony delayed the release of the A7SIII until 2019 in order to improve the specifications
to compete with the new Panasonic S1.

New features under consideration:

Live Streaming capability
Variable ND Adaptor that will work with Panasonic Sigma and Leica lenses
Stronger and more robust Fully articulating Touchscreen
Internal 4K Raw in 24/25
More details to follow.

You can join the new L Full Frame Facebook group if you plan to buy this camera. There you can discuss all features and tests once it’s released!

(L3) Panasonic S1 and S1R camera might output RAW video?

I just got this from a source:

Hello there, so I’ve come across a small variety of interesting news regarding the new Panasonic full frame cameras from a few credible sources.
Tip #1, A few weeks ago I was on a location scout and started a conversation with a fellow. We began talking about the new Panasonic full frame camera and he informed me that he has a friend in Japan who is working on the full frame sensors they’re producing. He said that his friend told him they are designing them to be able to shoot raw video.
Tip #2, I received this past Monday at Adobe Max in LA where I’m currently workshopping. I went and spoke with one of the Panasonic reps at their booth where I asked the rep about the rumor of being able to shoot raw video. The older gentleman replied, “I can neither confirm nor deny that it will be able to shoot Raw”, and then he subtly, yet meaningfully winked at me in a rather guaranteeing fashion. He then freely offered more information to me by telling me that the 150 megapixel capabilities of their camera will actually be closer to 168MP. With that information, I suspect we will be seeing some great thing from Panasonic this next year.

I have to admit this is not the first time I got this rumor. So probably there is something solid behind it. Of course, you have to expect RAW video to be recorder externally on a special recorder and not internally. That I really can’t see happening any time soon.

This is the new Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 lens

I know the Zeiss Otus line comes as native Nikon F or Canon EF mount only. But this is the best Full Frame lens line in the world. And many do use it adapter on their mirrorless camera for that reason. It’s also a manual focuing lens only so you don’t lose anything.

There is yet no info about when this lens will be announced but Nokishita leaked these images today:

 

And you can use it on your L-mount camera via adapter like this one:

(L4) Entry level Panasonic S camera has 24MP and High End Panasonic S camera has 48MP sensor

Image above is just a rendering of the G9 with L-mount

We got the info about the sensor resolution of the two Panasonic Full Frame L-mount cameras that will be announced tomorrow:

– The Entry level “Panasonic S” has 24MP
– The High End”Panasonic S” has 48MP

Panasonic will announce the development of the two cameras and the first three lenses tomorrow at 12:30pm Berlin time. There might be some kind of live stream we can show you on this site…
