What does the Panasonic Lumix S1H upgrades?

By  Adan Flannigan 2019-09-04 1258 0

Panasonic officially launched the S1H - 6K full-frame mirrorless camera. It is conceivable that the product is declared to be the SONY A7S series, which is the main high-end professional video performance specification.

Panasonic Lumix S1H

Ultra high 6K resolution video

Although it is the main 6K 24p (3:2), but the frame rate is low, unless it is supposed to use 24p, otherwise it is not very practical, I personally think that the more practical format is 5.9K 30p (16:9), after all, At this stage, the final output is still generally 4K, high resolution and high frame rate. I may prefer to choose the latter. After all, 5.7K is more than enough for 4K.

In addition to the improved picture quality, the highest specification video also removes the recording time limit, which is related to the heat that will be mentioned later.

Advanced 4K video

4K 60p is naturally a must-have feature of S1H. In 30fps mode, 4:2:2 10-bit H.264 encoding can be used. To shoot with 60fps, only Super35's viewing angle can be used.

If you want to capture the 4K 60p 4:2:2 10-bit color of DCI or UHD, you can only use HDMI to record a way. Even if it is not perfect, the film format recorded in S1H is still at the forefront. Other manufacturers can't even see the 4K 60p trace, let alone 4:2:2 or 10-bit color output. It is said that Atomos is also working with Lumix to develop the externally recorded RAW format, and the S1H's video performance will be improved, and the future is expected.

In addition, 4K Anamorphic's morphing shooting mode is also a continuation of the GH5s. Currently, Lumix is the only one that is willing to offer anamorphic shooting options on a monocular camera.

Double native ISO

The dual native ISO is gradually included in the standard of the video recorder , and S1H is the big brother of the GH5s, which is of course indispensable.

The S1H's dual native ISO is "low sensitivity" or "low noise", and there are different values ​​in different color modes, such as ISO 400 and ISO 2500 for HLG and ISO for V-Log. 640 and ISO 4000..., it is recommended to take a closer look before using.

Top interface for video design

The sharp-eyed people have found that S1H has moved the "video" button to the top, which is bigger and more conspicuous, almost exactly the same as the standard camera recording button. In addition, the top LCD not only enlarges, but also displays various related information such as shutter angle, exposure value, etc. depending on the purpose of the video.

DFD auto focus

A few people don't understand that the Lumix series does not have a phase focusing function. S1H is no exception, but Panasonic said: S1H is more suitable for video recording in contrast performance, and the actual effect is based on everyone's experience.

Screen quality improvement

The screen looks the same as the S1, but even with the same size, the resolution is slightly improved. The S1's 2.1 million pixel screen, S1H is increased to 2.33 million.

SD UHS-II double card slot

Friends who are still bothering to buy XQD don't have to worry anymore. The difference between the two card slots is really a design that hurts the pits of the selection barrier. This time the direct SD card is full, it will work, but the bandwidth is enough. The 6K video traffic is as high as 200mb/s.

Active cooling system

In order to prevent high temperature heat, S1 has limited the recording time of 4K, and S1H is equipped with higher-level video recording capability. However, it has been carefully guarded against this problem in advance, that is, "built-in fan". When the fan is set to Auto 1, it will start automatically when it detects a temperature rise; when it is set to Auto 2, it will keep the fan as close as possible and start when the temperature may be too high.

The camera body is equipped with a fan, which is rare, and the good heat dissipation with the ability of no recording time limit makes the S1H have the same long-term 6K operation, like professional-grade equipment, without too much trouble.

SMPTE time code

It is also a function required by professional models. With the setting of time code, it is convenient to synchronize in multi-camera recording. Even if it is matched with a large camera, it can still ensure smooth docking in later work.

Color Bar calibration

S1H provides color bar correction and 1 kHz test tone, which can be pre-calibrated for color and sound in a strict production process to achieve strict quality control.


Although the price is a bit higher than S1R, which is 3,999 $, but in the whole-video single-eye world, it is only S1H that can be so arrogant. After all, Sony can't find a product that competes with it.
