Panasonic has officially announced the new S series full frame mirrorless cameras, the new 47MP S1R and 24MP S1. Prototype versions of the S1R and S1 will be displayed under glass at Photokina 2018, with a promised simultaneous launch date for both models of “early 2019”.
The two cameras don’t have a new mount; rather, they use the same Leica L-mount found on that company’s SL.
Thus, users will be able to use new Panasonic lenses, with the first three being a 50 mm/F1.4 fixed-focus lens, 24-105 mm standard zoom lens, and 70-200 mm telephoto zoom lens. Panasonic plans on releasing more than ten lenses by 2020. Users can also use Leica’s expanding L-mount collection, and Sigma is will also be producing lenses for the system. Together, the three companies have formed the ‘L-Mount Alliance’.
The S1R and S1 will support Panasonic’s Dual IS technology, which combines in-camera shake reduction with optical stabilization built into select lenses. Both camera will be able to capture 4K/60p video, which Panasonic says is a first for a full-frame mirrorless camera.
The S1R and S1 will have a three-axis touchscreen LCD similar to the one on the Fujifilm X-T3. It will have dual memory card slots: one XQD and one SD slot.
WIth these two new pro-focused cameras comes a new service and support program known as Lumix Pro, which will allow photographers to get their cameras repaired globally.
