Panasonic India has announced the launch of the Lumix DC-S1H, aimed at providing the company’s latest digital single-lens full-frame mirrorless camera movie-quality video output. The camera was first launched internationally in August this year and has now finally hit the Indian market. The Lumix DC-S1H sensor has a resolution of 24.2-megapixels and is compatible with the new dual native ISO. In addition, the company claims that the Lumix S1H is the world’s first full-frame mirrorless camera that captures 6K resolution and is capable of recording video at 6K resolution.
The Panasonic Lumix S1H is priced at Rs. 3,19,900 (for the body only), and is available for purchase through Panasonic retail outlets starting October 10th. Also, being part of the Lumix S-Series family, the S1H employs an L-mount system, making it compatible with L-mount interchangeable lenses. To recall, the Lumix S1H was launched worldwide at the end of August, priced at $ 3,999.99 (approximately Rs. 2,84,200).
The Panasonic Lumix S1H boasts a 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor that captures 6K resolution. It has dual native ISO features that allow users to get sharp images with the most accurate details possible. Combined with the optimal signal processing by the Venus engine, the camera achieves high sensitivity and minimal noise. For video recording, the Lumix S1H can shoot at 6K / 24p (3: 2 aspect ratio) or 5.9K / 30p (16: 9 aspect ratio) and 10-bit 60p 4K / C4K.
The Lumix S1H has a 5-axis body IS (image stabilizer) combined with a 2-axis OIS (optical image stabilizer) available on the Lumix S series lenses to avoid shaky shots during handheld video recording. Also, the camera has no video recording limit, which means users can shoot as long as their memory card or battery allows. Other important highlights of the camera include 14+ dynamic range stops and full V-Log / V-Gamut with 4: 2: 2 10 bit internal recording. In addition, it packs a number of features for professional cinematographers to shoot in a mirrorless system such as HLG (hybrid log-gamma), anamorphic 4: 3 mode, a waveform monitor and HDR (high dynamic range) shooting in a V-log view.
