Panasonic Lumix S Series

Panasonic is beefing up its Lumix line with its first ever full-frame mirrorless cameras. At the top of the range is the S1R, a 47.3 megapixel flagship that has no low pass filter, 4K 60p/50p video capability, and a maximum ISO of 25600. It will also take the lead in its category with the highest resolution in its class. The S1 will boast a 24.2 megapixel sensor with the same 4K 60p/50p video capability as well as 4K 30p/25p/24p and full-HD recording with no time limit. 

The cameras will also both feature in-body image stabilization, high-speed AF, a 5,760k dot OLED EVF, a tilting 3.2" touchscreen monitor, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and dual card slots with an XQD card slot and a second SD card slot. Both cameras will also feature rugged construction with a magnesium alloy full die-cast frame, weather sealing, dust and splash-resistance, and is rated to work at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. The camera will feature the new L-Mount, a partnership between Panasonic, Leica, and Sigma and will launch with a 50mm F1.4 and a 70-200mm F4 Lumix S Pro lens and a Lumix S 24-105mm F4 lens. 

The new Lumix S Series is now available for pre-order and is set to hit shelves this April.
