Panasonic has just officially announced the new Panasonic Lumix BS1H. It is a modular digital cinema camera with a small form-factor that bellies its full-frame sensor. It features a 24.2MP sensor, a Leica L lens mount, and a wide 14+-stop dynamic range to accommodate extreme lighting changes when recording in V-Log. It records video with resolutions up to 5.9K as well as C4K (4096 x 2160) and UHD4K, and it incorporates VariCam Look workflows.
Panasonic Lumix S 24mm F1.8 Lens was just officially announced. It is a sleek and compact wide-angle prime lens for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. Its 24mm focal length is ideally suited for landscapes, nature, interior, and architectural photography and provides a modestly bright f/1.8 maximum aperture for shallow depth of field control. Featuring an uncompromising optical design and the power to capture broad landscapes with corner-to-corner sharpness, this lens provides for rich and detailed stills and smooth and compelling video.

Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 is one of the best selling 4K video mirrorless cameras, released in 2017. Panasonic GH5 is a camera oriented at videographers, and includes features often found on more expensive pro video gear.
Panasonic has just officially announced the new Panasonic LUMIX S 50mm f/1.8 lens. It is a prime lens for the full L-mount system developed in partnership with Leica and Sigma. This new lens is weather-sealed and freeze proof to -10°C/+14°F. It is the same size as several other Panasonic F1.8 primes, making it easy to switch lenses without having to recalibrate a gimbal, for example.
Along with the new Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 II (Amazon /B&H/ Adorama), Panasonic also announced the development of Panasonic Lumix DC-GH6. It will allow for 10-bit 4:2:2 DCI 4K/60p capture, with no recording time limits. It also can also record 10-bit 5.7K/60p footage, though we suspect it might be 4:2:0. Both high frame rate (10-bit 4K/120p) and slow & quick modes are also available, meaning audio recording is possible with 120p footage. Panasonic GH6 is expected to start shipping by the end of 2021 for around $2,500. It is already listed at B&H! Read More »
