Panasonic at CES 2019 has reveal that its Lumix S full-frame mirrorless electronic cameras, the Lumix S1 and S1R, will go on sale by the end of March. The electronic cameras will support HDR still photo mode, that can be played back on HLG-compliant televisions. Panasonic also announced an upgrade for its Lumix S full-frame mirrorless cam, which will include essential features like HLG photo mode, and a high-resolution mode that combines 8 consecutively shot images into a single high-res image. These new functions were earlier revealed at last year’s Photokina, and will be presenting by the end of March 2019, as per Panasonic.
The Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R are the first cams with the brand-new L-Mount system, which the company’s been dealing with Leica and Sigma. The cameras will have the ability to shoot video at 4K, 60fps with dual image stabilization, tilt-able LCD show, contrast AD and depth-from-defocus tech.
Costs for the 2 cameras has not been announced yet, but we can anticipate an official announcement soon at CES itself.
HLG image, which will be readily available at launch on the Lumix S1 and S1R, allows images to be shot with a wider vibrant range that reproduces both glaring lights and dark shadows that are likely to be overexposed or underexposed.
The high resolution mode revealed for the Panasonic Lumix S mirorrless electronic cameras takes advantage of the image stabilizer mechanism. It shoots eight consecutive images immediately while shifting the sensor. These eight images are synthesized into a single image by the business’s brand-new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing.
Panasonic declares that precise information are consistently recreated in the resulting high-resolution images. The business also states that sub-options are readily available to reduce movement blur in moving things when shooting in this mode.
