First Panasonic S1R vs Sony A7 size comparison

Our friends over at Optyczne just shared these very first real world size comparison images between the new Panasonic S1R and the Sony A7III. The Panasonic is clearly bigger. At the same time the Panasonic looks much more solid too.

Interview with Panasonic: “these cameras will have the best possible codec for video recording”

Cinema5D interviewed Panasonic manager Mike Owen. They tried to spill out some more info but they didn’t get a lot of new info:

We have been assured that, when released, these cameras will have the best possible codec for video recording. Also autofocus for video recording is a priority for Panasonic, so hopefully the new cameras are supposed to have a powerful AF. We are still trying to confirm if the new cameras will have 10-bit internal recording. As soon as we get the official information from Panasonic, we will update the article.

Real world pictures of the new Panasonic S1R and hands-on reports

These are the first real world images of the new Panasonic S1R camera and lenses. All images by Optyczne and used with permission (do not repost them).

Hands-on impression by CameraJabber:

As yet I don’t know the resolution of the screen or viewfinder. However, Panasonic has said that the resolution of the electronic viewfinder (EVF) will beat the competition. Canon, Sony and Nikon all have EVFs with 3,690,000 dots, so that’s promising news for the S1R.

Hands-on impression by Photographyblog:

The Panasonic S1R/S1 is a physically big camera, and the 50mm f/1.4 is a physically big lens. Panasonic’s new full-frame system is quite a lot bigger than Sony’s and Nikon’s, being more akin to Canon’s in size with regards to both the body and the lens.
