At the opening of CABSAT 2019 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Panasonic officially announced regional availability of the Lumix S range, the brand’s first full-frame digital single lens mirrorless cameras with a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor. These comprise of the Lumix S1R and S1, both of which are based on the L-Mount standard.

Designed for professional videographers and photographers, the LUMIX S1R integrates a 47.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (36mm x 24mm) without LPF (Low Pass Filter), which gives it the industry’s highest level of resolution in the full-frame mirrorless cameras.

In addition to the precise reproduction capability in detail, this sensor achieves a high S/N ratio by taking advantage of its high light-condensing efficiency despite the large number of pixels. It features a High-Resolution mode for the first time as a mirrorless full-frame camera to enable 187-megapixel ultra-high precision photo shooting.

The LUMIX S1, on the other hand, comes with a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (35.6mm x 23.8mm) that provides a wide dynamic range and excellent performance at high sensitivity in addition to a natural yet sharp image description thanks to sufficient light condensation per pixel. It records smooth 4K 60p/50p video and enables full-pixel readout of signals in 4K 30p/25p to save truly beautiful footage. It has more cinematic features, such as compliance with 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording and 4K 60p/50p HDMI output as well as V-Log.
