“… When it was unveiled that Panasonic was making two Full-Frame cameras and that they are partnering with Leica and Sigma, I was ecstatic, and still am. Everything about these new cameras looks and sound promising.
However, we have found out that the upcoming S1 and S1R will not have flip-out fully articulating touch LCD like the G9 GH5 and GH5S, it is unsure what the reasoning of this was. But many of us in the video world was surprised and confused by this, all we wanted was for the screen to be the same as the one offered in the GH5 and GH5S….”

I fully support Australian artist Idin Aazami’s petition to Panasonic asking that Panasonic’s currently -in-development Lumix S1 and S1R 35mm mirrorless cameras be released with fully-articulated LCD monitors instead of the 3-way tilting LCD screens shown off on the pro-production dummies shown at photokina 2018.
I was convinced to invest in Panasonic Lumix cameras for video production and stills photography by the experience of using cameras with 3-way tilting screens and using cameras with fully-articulating monitors and the advantages of the latter over the former became very clear very fast.
Please sign Idin Aazami’s petition and help get the numbers well beyond 1000.
