Panasonic digital camera without mirror LumixDC-S1
As part of Panasonic's entry in full-frame mirrorless, the Lumix DC-S1es is a well-rounded camera that offers sets of advanced features for still and video images, along with strong physical construction. Characterized by its 24.2 MP MOS full frame sensor, which is compatible with an updated Venus engine, the S1 offers impressive image quality along with a fast 9 fps shooting rate and an expanded sensitivity range of up to ISO 204800. With regard to video, the S1 can record UHD 4K30p with full pixel reading, 4:2: 0 10-bit color and unlimited trip times, as well as 4K60p for up to 29:59. HDR video recording is possible using the dedicated hybrid registration Gamma mode, and there will be a firmware update available to add 4:2: 2 10-bit internal recording along with V-Log. Complementing both still images and video capabilities, the image sensor also uses an advanced DFD contrast detection automatic focusing system for a quick and accurate approach and subject tracking. In addition, image stabilization with sensor change helps minimize the appearance of camera vibration at 5.5 stops for a sharper take on the handheld.
Beyond the image attributes, the S1 is also distinguished by its body design, which incorporates an electronic OLED viewfinder of 5.76 m-Dots with an impressive resolution, along with a touch screen LCD with triaxial inclination of 3.2 "and 2.1 m-points. The magnesium-alloy body is weather-sealed to allow work under adverse conditions and features a high-status LCD screen to check the firing settings on the fly. SD and XQD card slots offer flexible storage capabilities and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity enable remote camera control along with wireless image transfer to tablets and smartphones.
Video recording HDR UHD 4k
Beyond taking pictures, the S1 is a large-capacity video camera with UHD 4K30p recording with full pixel reading, 10-bit color 4:2: 0 and unlimited recording time along with UHD 4K60p recording for up to 29 minutes 59 seconds. Full HD Recording is also supported, up to 60p with unlimited recording times. In addition, high-speed recording modes for UHD 4K60, with 30 fps playback, and Full HD 180 fps, with 30 fps playback, offer slower 2x and 6x motion, respectively.
As a complement to video quality, a high dynamic range (HDR) mode can be used, along with a dedicated hybrid record Gamma (HLG) Photo style mode, to expand Highlight and shadow details and provide greater flexibility in the Color classification. An optional firmware update will be available to further increase the recording capabilities with 4:2: 2 sampling support, internal 10-bit color depth recording along with V-Log. In addition, it is possible to record on an optional external recorder, through the HDMI port type A, and also available compatibility with an external microphone and headphones through dedicated 3.5 mm jacks.
Used in conjunction with other L-Mount Alliance members, the L-lens is a versatile interface with a support diameter of 51.6 mm and a 20 mm flange distance for working with a wide range of optics.
An impressive Real View Finder is a high resolution EVF OLED 5.76 M points that offers a clear magnification of configurable 0.78 x display along with a variable refresh rate of 60 fps or 120 fps, a delay of 0.005 sec, and a ratio of 10.000 contrast: 1.
The large 2.1 "and 2.1 m LCD screen is a bright and clear medium for shooting with live view, as well as for playback and menu navigation. The display features a triaxial tilt design that adapts to work from high and low angles, even in the vertical shooting orientation, and the touch screen design allows intuitive configuration control. Live View Boost is a dedicated display mode for working in low light conditions, where the display sensitivity can be increased to help compose your image, and a night mode also benefits working in dark conditions by Decrease the backlight intensity of the display.
In addition to the rear LCD display, a high-status LCD screen can also be used to quickly review the trip settings, even when the camera is off.
The durable, weather-sealed magnesium alloy construction is splash-proof, dust-and freeze-resistant to suit work in harsh climatic conditions and difficult environments.
The ergonomic design provides a large, comfortable right-hand grip coupled with easily accessible physical controls, an eight-way joystick and a refined general user interface design for intuitive use. In addition, the illuminated buttons help to adjust the settings in low light conditions and a locking lever prevents unwanted configuration changes.
Dual Memory card slots (one XQD slot and one SD slot) provide improved image storage flexibility, allowing you to separate raw files and JPEGs into different cards, save duplicate files on both cards or Simply duplicate your storage space with the overflow recording. In addition, the SD slot is UHS-II compliant for fast read/write speeds and the XQD slot will be compatible with the CFexpress standard after a future firmware update.
A C-type USB port allows fast transfer of files as well as charging the battery in the camera at high speed. In addition, a HDMI type a port benefits video applications, a 2.5 mm port can be used with the optional remote DMW-RS2, 3.5 mm microphone and headphone jacks adapt to the advanced audio recording needs , and you can use a PC sync port for the flash with sync cable.
The DMW-BLJ31 Lithium-ion rechargeable battery has an approximate capacity of 380-400 shots per charge when working with the rear monitor, 360-380 shooting per charge with the EVF and 1100-1150 shooting per charge when the Power Save LVF mode is activated.
6k and 4k photo
Using the video recording capabilities of the S1, a trio of photo modes is available for recording still images of 3:2 or 4:3 at a shooting speed of 60 or 30fps or 18 MP still images at a shooting speed of 30 fps :
Burst: This mode will allow you to record continuously, making it ideal for cases where you need a fast frame speed to capture the best time.
Previous burst: This mode is ideal when you are unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and record images a second before and one second after pressing the shutter button to give you 60 pictures to choose from.
Burst (S/s): This mode closely follows the video recording process and allows you to play your video, pause at the selected time and use the shutter button to mark a selected picture of the video and save it as a single frame 8 or 18MP.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Bluetooth Low Energy (4.2) provides a constant connection between your smartphone or desktop and the camera with minimal power consumption. For more robust wireless activities, IEEE 802.11 ac and b/g/n support is also available for faster transmission and more fluid remote control and monitoring.
As a complement to the wireless camera connectivity, Lumix Sync is an IOS and Android app designed to pair with the camera for remote trigger control based on tablet or smartphone and wireless image transfer.
Other camera features
By using sensor change stabilization technology, the S1 introduces a high-resolution mode to capture and compile eight separate exposures to create a single file of raw 96MP or JPEG. Suitable for static subjects and when working on a tripod, this mode creates a more detailed and accurate color image that a single shot can produce and produces an image with a resolution of 12000 X 8000 pixels.
Photo HLG mode offers a higher dynamic range for improved retail sales in the shadow and highlight regions of the image. When working in photo HLG mode, images can be saved as a HSP file in 4k or full resolution, in addition to JPEG and plain formats, for vivid playback on 4k TVs.
In addition to the conventional proportions 3:2, 4:3, 1:1 and 16:9, the photographs can also be recorded in panoramic formats 65:24 and 2:1.
IS status Scope helps to recognize the type of camera movement caused by the display of an arrow on the viewfinder or on the rear LCD screen.
Flicker reduction automatically detects the frequency/flicker of artificial illumination and activates the shutter at peak times to represent exposures with constant color.
By helping to contain bright reflections, the highlighted weighted measurement mode prioritizes the highlight values when an exposure measurement is performed to prevent the scenes from tripping.
By offering more versatility than the automatic white Balance (AWB), a AWBw configuration will retain a warm reddish tint, while AWBc offers a colder bluish dye.
Lumix Tether enables wired and tethered triggering capabilities through a USB connection between the camera and a computer. In addition to providing a larger live preview, this application also allows you to remotely activate the shutter, use the 6k and 4k photo modes, and start/stop video recording.
