Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 - Body
24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor: maximum sensitivity and image quality
Whether you're taking still photos or recording videos, the LUMIX S1 offers you breathtaking image quality without compromising functionality. By providing sufficient light condensation per pixel, the 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor offers a wide dynamic range and crisp, natural expression, even at high sensitivity settings. Utilizing the power of the Venus Engine, the camera offers maximum sensitivity with an impressive ISO 51200 level. Photographers and videographers will surely appreciate this combination of ultra-high sensitivity performance and ultra-high image quality.
The beauty of the Venus Engine
The union of the CMOS sensor and the beautiful Venus Engine reproduces colors with an extraordinary level of detail and an exceptional natural expression of textures. Multi-pixel luminance generation and intelligent detail processing deliver vivid brightness and contrast. Three-dimensional color control accommodates accurate colors in shadows from dark to light, and the high-precision multiprocessor NR makes images sharper, even at high ISO sensitivity settings.
Real View Finder with a resolution of 5760K dots
With the world's highest resolution of 5760K dots, the Real View Finder is the largest in its class. Exceptional clarity and sharpness make it look like you're looking at the subject with your own eyes, allowing you to focus while shooting. Thanks to a lens designed for minimal center-to-corner distortion and a high magnification of 0.78x, the Real View Finder supports both perfect framing and high-precision focusing. The responsive OLED display offers an extremely low 0.005 second delay and an ultra-high refresh rate of 120 fps to try and keep track of fast-moving subjects. Also, the magnification ratio of 0.78x can be changed to 0.7x or 0.74x depending on the recording conditions.
Crisp 4K video recording at 60p / 50p
Together, Panasonic's 4K technology, the new CMOS sensor and the new Venus Engine produce spectacular 4K 60p / 50p video (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 MP4) in a full-frame format. Thanks to these advanced technologies, even fast-moving scenes look sharp and natural.
In addition, the LUMIX S1 is designed for incredible heat dissipation to deliver 4K 30p / 25p / 24p quality and Full HD recording with no time limit. The ability to record over long periods of time makes this camera the ideal choice for a wide variety of professional uses, such as seamless documentaries, fixed point wildlife viewing, and more.
Advanced recognition technology
Advanced Panasonic technology offers unified sensor, motor, and lens control to provide high-speed, highly accurate focus at every angle. Super-fast 480fps communication between sensor and lens, coupled with Panasonic's DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, makes high-speed, high-precision, approximately 0.08-second autofocus a reality. Plus, the low-light autofocus works with an impressive -6 EV exposure value. Higher sensitivity and optimized sensor settings have increased luminance detection performance, enabling sharp focus with only starlight. The advanced artificial intelligence technology can not only recognize the human body, but also that of animals, such as dogs, cats and birds, while the high-performance tracking system keeps the subject in focus at all times.
