(L5) Panasonic S1H will be annunced on August 27! Will have 6 stops in body stabilization and “cooled” 24,2 MP sensor.

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!

Here are the six new Sony FF sensors that might be used by future Panasonic-Sigma-Leica cameras too…

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.)
IMX409: 55MP
IMX410: 24.6MP (24mpix, 19fps for photography. 6k 40fps, 4k crop 100fps.)
IMX521: 15MP with Quad Array
IMX554: 30MP
