(L5) First leaked images of the new Panasonic S1H

A french website spilled out the press text and first images of the new Panasonic S1H. Here is the google translated text:

From the autumn of 2019, it will be necessary to count on the LUMIX S1H. It’s the 3rd Full Format Musketeer from Panasonic, after the brave Lumix S1 and S1R.

This 3rd box, very oriented cinema and video (more than the S1) announces a world premiere of shock: the video recording in 6K / 24p (in format 3: 2) or 5,9K / 30p (in format 16: 9) . It also announces the C4K / 4K (the famous DCI) in 60p in 10 bits. It also adapts to 4: 3 anamorphic mode. Rumors were running about the arrival of the 8K, or even a GH6, but it will be 6K in Full Format. Not bad…

In short, the engineers seem to have concentrated their efforts on an invisible but problematic parameter: the heating of the case. And the higher the resolution, the more it heats! As a result, heat dispersion seems to have been studied to provide the expected video performance. However, the manufacturer states in its statement that when the temperature of the device exceeds the certified operating temperature, the device can automatically stop video recording to protect it from heat damage.

4K MODE

4K mode is not forgotten with the ability to record in 4K or better (from our point of view), to crop 6K videos in 4K, which should increase the image resolution in Crop mode or allow to reframe more. Stabilization could also be improved in this same logic.L-rumors.com

As for personalization of the image, the LUMIX S1H also features the V-Log / V-Gamut with a dynamic range of 14 stops, practically equivalent to that of the brand’s VariCam, enhancing the texture of human skin.

Note that the S1H’s recording format is compatible with the V-Log format recorded by a VariCam or the V-Log L recorded by the LUMIX GH5 / GH5S.

The video can be saved in unlimited. It is therefore a case of “camcorder” type.

The prototype of the LUMIX S1H will be exhibited at the “Cine Gear Expo 2019” show from May 30 to June 2, 2019.

The price is of course not yet communicated.

Availability: Fall 2019
