(L5) Panasonic S1 will cost $2,499 and S1R will cost $3699. You have to pay $$$ to get 4k30 10bit internal

A readers sent me this screengrab from the Panasonic S1 and S1R press release:

So the Panasonic S1R will be $300 more expensive than the Nikon Z7 and $500 more than the Sony A7rIII.
The Panasonic S1 will be $500 more expensive than both the Nikon Z6 and Sony A7III.

Price different might be hopefully justified by the performance. But it’s annoying to know you have to pay extra to get 4k30p 10bit 4:2:2 !!!

The announcement will happen in a few hours at exactly 11:00 London time. I will live blog here and give you all early info and reviews. Let’s hope the new Panasonic are even more impressive in real world performance!
