Panasonic has announced the launch of what it describes as the world’s first digital single-lens camera capable of 3:2 6K/24p recording.
The LUMIX S1H is also the world’s first camera capable of 10-bit 4K/C4K (or 4096×2160) 60p recording.
The camera’s key features include:
- High resolution up to 6K for multiple formats: Panasonic has been able to maximise the use of the pixels in the full-frame image sensor, allowing LUMIX S1H, as a digital camera, to achieve 6K/24p (3:2 aspect ratio) or 5.9K/30p (16:9 aspect ratio) video recording for the first time in the world. The camera accommodates a variety of recording formats, including 4:3 Anamorphic mode; while its high-resolution data can also be used for creating 4K videos with higher image quality or for cropping images in 4K.
- Rich gradation and a wide colour space virtually equal to those of cinema cameras: The LUMIX S1H features V-Log/V-Gamut with a wide dynamic range of over 14 stops, which is virtually the same as the Panasonic Cinema VariCam. Designed under consistent colour management, the S1H’s recorded footage is compatible with V-Log footage recorded by VariCam or V-Log L footage recorded by LUMIX GH5/GH5S.
