The Panasonic S1H Will Offer 6K 24p Video and Much More!

The new Panasonic S1H is more or less the company’s entry into the video world with its Lumix Pro Series cameras.

Today at CineGear 2019, Panasonic is announcing the development of the company’s Panasonic S1H full frame Lumix Pro camera, targeted at the cinematographer. With a similar body style to their Panasonic S1 and Panasonic S1R cameras, this camera features an L mount, but will be able to be used with a PL mount for cinema. When it becomes available this fall, it’s going to boast features such as the same cinematic look that can be delivered from Varicams, 14+ stop V-log gamut, 6K 24p video, and multi-aspect recording such as a 4:3 anamorphic style. When the press asked Panasonic if it will have features for photographers, the company’s reps said they couldn’t comment on the specifics just yet. However, they stated that the Panasonic S1H will be able to shoot photos.

That’s not all that Panasonic is announcing though. Check out more details below.
