The Panasonic S1R Disassembly and Teardown by Kolarvision

Kolarvision posted their full Panasonic S1R teardown article. At the end their conclusion is:

The Panasonic S1R is an impressive machine inside and out. Panasonic has clearly decided to go there own way with the design of their first full-frame while still providing something that meets the requirements of a professional photographer, or at least one with very strong arms.

Panasonic interview at Imaging Resource

Panasonic manager Yosuke Yamane has been interviewed by Imaging Resource.  A couple of interesting info:

  • It’s been eight years since I decided to develop full-frame cameras. And officially, we decided to develop the full-frame camera two years ago.
  • The S1H was not delayed, but intentionally we put priority onto the photo-oriented cameras rather than video-oriented cameras. That’s the timeline.
  • The SH1 uses the same S1 sensor. However, we made lots of technical improvements to aid video shooting, such as a low-pass filter to reduce the moire, and Dual Native ISO for the wide range of color gradation. And in order to realize the 6K video, we made lots of improvements for the resolution and to reduce the noise, in order to fit the usage of video shooting.

Panasonic S1H: A Conversation with Sean Robinson in Yet Another Secret Location

Hugh Brownstone writes:

OK, not so secret – and in my rush to get this out, 1) I shot in UHD in order to reduce workload on my travel laptop AND reduce my dependence on internet speeds (as is, it took a full DAY to upload from a vacation rental); 2) I didn’t grade the footage I managed to clip on this pre-production camera; 3) I didn’t do my usual audio clean-up afterward; and 4) I missed an errant title I should have deleted around the 22 second mark. My bad.

Still, this is a FASCINATING camera, and it’s always a joy to spend time with Sean. MORE TO COME, including shooting in 6K, of course!
