Panasonic S1H 6K full frame mirrorless cinema camera – Key differences to the S1

Comment on the EOSHD Forum

The Panasonic S1H is here, offering extra recording modes over the S1, including subtle changes to the body.

  • Full frame 6K/24p in 3:2
  • Almost full frame 5.9K at 30 in 16:9
  • Super 35mm 1.5x crop DCI 4K 60p 10bit
  • Open gate 4:3 anamorphic mode (and 3:2 useful too)
  • V-LOG and 10bit 4:2:2 codecs out of the box (no firmware upgrade key required)
  • Front rec. button (in place of the S1’s mode preset lever)
  • Top rec. button (in place of the S1’s on/off lever)
  • No IBIS (To be confirmed)?
  • $4000 / Fall 2019 release date (S1 is $2500)
  • UPDATE: There is much more to the prototype at CineGear than meets the eye and it seems Panasonic did not announce a lot of the major features, for reasons only they know!! For example, it appears the camera has a GH5 style flip screen, rather than the more photography orientated tilt screen on the S1.
