The official Panasonic S1H specs will be announced on August 27!
One of my sources had some time with the production ready cameras and told me this:
The S1H will have 6 stops stabilization inbody, fully lockable. Its double up from gh5. And a fan! For cooling and unlimited recording. Its meant to match vericam as far as rec format. And its a little bigger to the back, due to the fan. And the monitor Can be tilted out and rotated like a combi og the s1 and gh5, so its viewable from all sides and wont get restricted by a cage or cables on the side.
24,2 mp sensor cooled for continous rec. 6 stops stabilization internal. 6,2 dual.
Sound rec in hfr.
Dynamic range 14 stops. 6k sensor in 4:3 for anamorph and in 16:9 5,9k
Stay tuned on August 27!
Sony has registered six new Full Frame sensors. Some of them might be used on future Panasonic-Sigma-Leica cameras too. What’s particular is that the sensor named IMX521 uses the Quad Bayer Structure. Sony writes:
HDR function is available by dividing exposure time in the 4 same color pixels into long exposure pixels and short exposure pixels. or dividing conversion gain in the 4 same color pixels into LCG pixels and HCG pixels.
Quad Bayer RAW function makes it possible to readout 4 same color pixels without addition.
When normal operation. 4 same color pixels are added and made 1 pixel, and output as bayer pixel array. In addition, a group of divided 4 same color pixels is defined as 1 pixel unit in this product specification.
Here are the short sensor specs:
IMX311: 48,9MP (45° deg. square pix array)
IMX313: 48,9MP (16bit A/D, stacked 3:2, 30p at 16:9 FULL 8k readout. 60p at 6k with crop.)
IMX410: 24.6MP (24mpix, 19fps for photography. 6k 40fps, 4k crop 100fps.)
IMX521: 15MP with Quad Array
