News Shooter: Panasonic S1H full-frame mirrorless 6K 24p (UPDATED)

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H 35mm mirrorless camera with Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm f/4.0 Macro OIS zoom lens.

“…It’s best to think of the S1H as an S1 on steroids. Make no mistake though, unlike the S1 and S1R, the LUMIX S1H was designed and developed especially for film production.

The S1H is far from ready for consumers. Panasonic is only showing a prototype of the camera here at Cinegear. Just like they did with the S1 and S1R, this is more of a tease than anything else. The camera isn’t expected to be available until Autumn 2019….”


Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 with 8Sinn cage and Scorpio handle and rod riser. Like camcorders, the GH5’s fully-articulated LCD monitor can be positioned exactly where you need it to be.

News Shooter is the first video production industry website to which I turn for detailed information about coming and newly released hardware and as usual they have done a fine job digging into the facts about the Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H video camera, currently in development for release later this year.

One of the few disappointments about the S1H’s slightly older siblings, the S1 and S1R, is their lack of the fully-articulated LCD monitor upon which I rely on so much when shooting stills and video on Panasonic’s Lumix GH series cameras as well as my GX8.

It is so good to see, from the evidence of a photograph in this article shot by the News Shooter team at Cinegear 2019, that the S1H has such a monitor.
