Announced at Photokina 2018, the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R are Panasonic's new full-frame mirrorless cameras. Full specifications for the cameras have not yet been released, however, Panasonic has now announced two new features. 


The new features announced are:

  • High Dynamic Range Still Photo: HLG Photo Mode
  • High Resolution Multi-shot Mode: As featured in the Panasonic Lumix G9, the S1/S1R will also feature this, giving higher resolution images. 



Panasonic has also released a number of 24mp sample images taken by Daniel Berehulak:

From Panasonic: 7th January 2019 - Following the development announcement at Photokina 2018, Panasonic has unveiled key features of the new LUMIX S full-frame mirrorless camera at CES 2019. The LUMIX S full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses will be available from the end of March 2019.*

A whole new style of photo expression with High Dynamic Range Still Photo: HLG Photo Mode

HLG Photo allows images to be shot with a wider dynamic range. Rich, precise colour expression as close as possible to visual memory is enabled by reproducing both glaring lights and dark shadows that were likely to be overexposed or underexposed.

HLG Photos are produced as an HSP file. The user can playback these vibrant images on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. It is also ideal for photo presentations by photographers.

High Resolution Mode: Stunning details with a realistic sensation

Taking advantage of the Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) mechanism, eight consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor. These eight images are synthesized into a single image by the new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing. Precise details are faithfully reproduced to be saved as a beautiful, highly realistic image. This mode is ideal for taking natural landscapes or fine art objects with delicate details.

In situations where the scene includes moving subjects, sub-options are available to suppress motion blur, enabling photographers to use this mode just like when they shoot in a normal photo shooting mode.
