Latest Panasonic S1R prototype image from Wilkinsoncameras

A couple of days ago The UK store Wilkinsoncameras had the privilege to display the latest prototype of the Panasonic S1R camera (see image on top). People were not allowed to shoot with it and Panasonic did not unveil any new details.

I cannot see any changes to the previous prototype. If you find some let me know in the comment system!

Panasonic S1-S1R to ship in mid 2019

A couple of stores now updated their S1-S1R product pages and estimate a shipment start for mid 2019. This is quite a long wait! I hope it will start to ship in March already while most people have to wait til April-May to get their preordered camera.
