Panasonic Introduces Its First Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras With the Lumix S Series

At Germany’s Photokina 2018, electronics powerhouse Panasonic introduced the Lumix S Series. Not only does the series mark the brand’s inaugural foray into digital single lens mirrorless cameras, but it furthermore represents the world’s first full-frame models to support 4K 60p/50p video recording. Consisting of two variants–Lumix S1R and S1–the series aims for the tippy top shelf of every conceivable performance metric. To that end, each model comes equipped with a 35mm full-frame image sensor and processing engine, and Dual Image Stabilisation system, among other things.

Thanks to its premium specs, the Lumix S Series delivers exceptional resolution and unparalleled stability, making it a veritable asset for any modern videographer or vlogger. With Dual Image Stabilisation at its disposal, the series enables a new tier of control over handheld shots, supplanting the need for a tripod. Also featured on each camera is a double slot for an XQD memory card and an SD memory card, as well as a triaxial tilt LCD screen.

To coincide with the release of the Lumix S Series, Panasonic is also developing the world’s first full-range F1.7 wide zoom lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. Meanwhile, each S series camera is compatible with Leica Camera’s L-Mount, allowing for interchangeable lenses. Expect these black beauties to drop in 2019.
