Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H review

DPReview has completed their comprehensive review of the Panasonic S1H.  They gave it, predicably their gold award and a sterling 90% overall rating.

Key features of the Panasonic S1H include;

  • 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor
  • Dual native ISO
  • 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording
  • 4K/60p 10-bit recording
  • 6K video with full-frame capture
  • Full V-Log gamma profile (matches VariCam)
  • Unlimited video record time
  • H.264 and H.265 internal recording
  • Dual-SD card slots w/ V90 card support
  • Anamorphic capture with de-squeezed preview
  • Variable frame rate (VFR) and High frame rate (HFR) video
  • In-body image stabilization (with support for Panasonic Dual-IS 2)
  • Hinged and fully articulated rear screen

Pros;

  • Excellent video performance
  • Broad feature set and comprehensive tools for shooting video
  • High-resolution viewfinder and convenient LCD articulation
  • Tools to support specialized HDR or anamorphic shooting
  • Extensive customization and option to save/recall personal settings
  • High quality 24MP images if you need to shoot stills
  • Can accommodate a wide range of microphones
  • Adaptors available for EF and PL lenses
  • ProRes RAW output promised

Cons;

  • Autofocus performance doesn't match the impressive quality of the footage
  • Rolling shutter can be noticeable in some modes
  • Battery life is variable (possibly dictated by fan workload)

Conclusions;

The S1H brings the features and feel of Panasonic's GH series to the L-mount full-frame system. It's a compact and affordable package if judged according to the standard of its broadcast-grade footage. The rolling shutter figures are worth being conscious of, and the autofocus isn't as impressive as the rest of the camera, but overall it's a superb video tool that will address a wide range of needs.
