LUMIX Academy S1H | 01 LUMIX S1H Introduction

[music] Jacob James: I’m Jacob James. Photographer, filmmaker
and Panasonic LUMIX Ambassador. Here we have the new
Panasonic LUMIX S1H. The S1H builds on the legacy
of Panasonic’s professional video technology and the success
of the GH-series. The S1H comes packed
with new features designed to match filmmakers’ needs. It also comes with the features that filmmakers’ have grown
to love in the LUMIX GH-series and it brings
these for the first time to the full-frame S-series. The S1H bridges the gap
between solo content creators and the cinema production world, with
included features such as V-Log and V-Gamut with more than 14
stops of dynamic range, 3:2 6K recording capability,
class-leading HLG HDR recording options, timecode
in and out via the flash sync port and compatibility with the XLR1
adapter to record 24-bit, 96KHz, high resolution
audio ensures that this is a camera ready for even the most
demanding of productions. So what’s new with the S1H? The S1H’s 24-megapixel
full-frame sensor is equipped with dual
native ISO functionality. The dual native ISO was first
seen in the VariCam range and has revolutionised low-light work for production since
its introduction. This technology allows unprecedented
image quality even at higher ISO. The S1H also utilises the L-Mount
the same as the S1 and S1R giving filmmakers access
to the great native lenses from Panasonic such as this 50mm
as well as lenses from L-Mount alliance partners
such as Leica and Sigma. The L-Mount also has the benefit
of a short flange distance that can easily be adapted to
other lens mounts when required. Naturally,
this includes the widespread EF mount with the MC-21 from Sigma and also PL mount
adapters too for use With cinema lenses in production. For those of you who are familiar
with the S1 and the S1R, the S1H is equipped with the same
ultra-high-resolution EVF, Eight-way joystick control, full-size HDMI,
cable lock, microphone, and headphone inputs as well as USB-C direct charging and powering
of the camera even when in use. We will deep dive into many of these
features in the accompanying videos. What’s different
with the S1H compared to the other S-Series cameras? New for the S-series
is the integration of a fan outlet, a fully articulating screen,
twin SD card slots, two dedicated record buttons one on the front, one on the top,
a new top LCD screen design and tally lamps front and back to ensure you
know when the camera is rolling. The S1H also offers unprecedented recording formats
in a full-frame sensor. Resolutions up to 6K,
cinema 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 and even anamorphic modes,
meaning that the S1H can keep up with pretty much
any complex or technical requirements a DP
or director may desire. If you’re familiar with the GH5S,
many of the best features of that camera have been
built upon and brought to the bigger sensor format. 400 megabits all-intra codec, check,
cinema 4K 60p, check, variable frame rates of up to 180 frames
per second at Full HD, you bet. As well as this abundance
of recording formats and codex,
users of the S1H will be excited to see other small tweaks
to the camera to make it integrate into a production
environment easier. For example, the left-hand side
strap mount is now perfectly aligned with the sensor for a more
accurate focus distance measurement and a newly refined status LCD
& video menu allow for quick and easy control of the important
functionality of the camera. Finally, the newly designed fan
prevents excessive heat build up allowing unlimited high-resolution
recording even in 6k Ensuring that this camera can
keep up with the most demanding of filming and this is the brand
new Panasonic LUMIX S1H. Broadcast: Panasonic
