Combined with the Venus Engine delivers a maximum ISO 51200 / Extended ISO 204800 for a cleaner image at higher sensitivities and a beautiful rendition of dark areas in the frame.

4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording / HDMI Output

Featuring incredibly wide colour gamut, the S1H can record C4K 4:2:2 10 bit up to 30p internally. When 10-bit recording is selected, the camera delivers 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output, making capture with an external recorder possible. The 4:2:2 10-bit option has approximately 128 times the information of 4:2:0 8-bit and is capable of expressing over 1 billion colours. This massive volume of colour information is highly valuable for post-production, making it possible to creatively adjust colour to match the creative vision of the Director. Leveraging the expressive power of a full-frame camera takes 4K video to exciting new places.

The S1H offers, a range of creative options including 14+ stops of dynamic range, and a very wide colour spectrum, while V-Log and V-Gamut come pre-installed, ensuring LUMIX S1H footage can be seamlessly edited with footage shot on a wide variety of cameras including VariCam. The LUMIX S1H V-Log offers 14+ stops of dynamic range, which covers the PQ requirement of HDR, while V-Gamut covers the full HDR colour spectrum, giving users access to HDR shooting. As a further convenient touch, the LUT used is displayed on the camera monitor, for real-time feedback on the final output wherever, whenever. The end result is more satisfying colour and creative experience.

First Fan Ever in a Full-frame DSLM Camera* Supports Unlimited Video Recording

For the first time ever in a full-frame digital single-lens mirrorless camera,* the LUMIX S1H incorporates a fan for optimum heat-dispersion — a feature typically found only on broadcast or cinema cameras. The fan is part of a newly developed body that allows unlimited video recording which causes minimal vibrations to effect image stabilization, and ultraquiet performance without compromising the dust- and splash-resistant body design.** The fan is designed to offer greater shooting flexibility through four different settings, including AUTO1 – which starts the fan soon after shooting starts to minimise heat and facilitate longer shots and AUTO2 - prioritizes quiet performance and minimises fan usage.

* Among full-frame digital single-lens mirrorless cameras as of August 27, 2019. ** Dust- and splash-resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
