Sorry to go a bit off topic here. But does anybody have any links to the best S1H, S1, S5 footage. Have not found anything yet I am impressed with so far. (got the S5 pre-ordered). 

This was just posted in the 'GH5 to Alexa Conversion' thread. It's shot on the S5.

This was shot on the S1:

These were both shot on the S1H with the Ninja V in ProRes RAW (an update the S5's getting too).

Kaboom, it's arrived! Sorry, no YouTube unboxing video or reading of spec list, just an initial impression whilst the battery is charging. I've come from 8-9 years of Fuji as my main cameras

2020 and Panasonic still hasn't sorted out their af smh

Little Photoshop size comparison between this and the S1H. Quite smaller !

Is it me, or does this all look overly sharp somehow. Doesnt have that nice smooth feel to it.

I've seen better stuff posted on the GH5/GH5s Facebook page as examples of those cameras, than these videos.  If they are to entice users to fullframe Panasonic, I don't think they work for me.   🙄

Shot on the S1 with a 1/8 black pro mist (side interview shot is GH5) and some 16mm grain added in.

Heavily graded but if you have a bit of color grading knowledge then the S5/S1/S1H is a big step up from GH5 (not to mention low light capabilities). I think the v-log on the S series has a more organic quality than any of Sony, Canon's, Fuji's current offerings (less sharpening).

Just bought the S5 as a 2nd camera so look forward to testing that out.

I personally found those examples to be quite good :

Nice work.

Looks a very interesting camera. Anyone got any idea how much the f1.8 primes are going to cost?

Hopefully they don't go the Nikon route on quality and pricing. Nikon's 1.8 optics are perfect, but that causes them to be wildly expensive. Hope the Panasonic ones are "good enough" and affordable.

No a Belgian shop. On the claim document I got it says 30 october though. I just sent them a mail, hopefully they will extend it to november.. cause I feel a bit irritated by the shop and their lack of effort of trying to solve it.

To follow on from this, does anybody in the UK? I pre-ordered in mid-September from Jessops and they still haven't received stock...

I got it late September and I'm in the uk but pre ordered on announcement day, also I just managed to get spare batteries today so now I have three.

I'm going off this page that says November: https://www.panasonicpromotions.co.uk/promotions

Maybe different in the EU?

So strange the differences between areas in the world. i ordered on september 7th, and received it less than é weeks after that. I don't understand how Panasonic can't supply at least a small quantity in USA or other countries. This camera seems to sell very well compared to other full frame cameras from Panasonic (except the S1H that sells more than they thought).

It is pretty strange, I didn't pre-order anything, I just went to a very large retailer's site here in the USA called BestBuy and ordered it...got it within 3 days. I was actually surprised because the two main online camera stores in the USA; Adorama and BH did not have it in stock.

I think a lot of it is the luck of the draw...

On one day, the more popular retailer will have the stock, but then the next, the less popular will have it simply because ‘everyone’ went to the other.

I preordered from CVP in the UK somewhere around the late-middle Sep and received very early Oct so had mine about one month now.
