Panasonic S1H review: Production quality video in a mirrorless camera


With the Netflix seal of approval, the Panasonic SH1 has earned its title as the best mirrorless camera on the market for video. You can capture video at up to 6K with 10-bit colors, giving you sharp, rich video and HDR, with lots of flexibility in...

Unbeatable video quality at up to 6K ; Awesome low-light performance ; Great ergonomics ; Five-axis in-body stabilization ; Flip-out rear display ; Excellent EVF

Below par autofocus ; Mediocre burst-shooting speeds ; High price

With the Netflix blessing, Panasonic's S1H suggested it would outclass every other mirrorless camera for video quality. After spending two weeks with it, I can confirm it does that. However, professional Netflix production work with a full crew is one...

There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. We've combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class.

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H review


The S1H is a full-frame mirrorless camera designed with videographers in mind. It brings features both from the GH series and Panasonic's professional Varicam line to create the most capable video camera we've ever tested.

Panasonic LUMIX S1H hands-on review: Big camera, big value


The new Panasonic S1H is a beast of a camera capable of shooting 6K 10-bit 4:2:0, 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 and 4K at 60fps. These specs along with an impressive dynamic range give this low budget filmmaking camera an image to boast about. The new Panasonic S1H...

Exceptional image quality;10-bit 4:2:2 4K;14+ stops of dynamic range

Panasonic Lumix S1H review


It might be a hybrid shooter but Panasonic might just have produced the best video camera there is in the Lumix S1H.

6K 10-bit full-frame capture Brilliant low-light performance Dual IS 2 with 6.5 stops of stability Anamorphic support

Lacks raw video capture AF performance not best in class Large and heavy

Panasonic’s Lumix GH5, GH5S and G9 are among our favourite video cameras, but Lumix S1H takes it up more than a single notch to offer stupendous performance. 6K video with 10-bit color offers picture quality that is sharp as a tack, with superb...

Developed with the same technical architecture as the Lumix S1 full-frame format, the Lumix DC-S1H hybrid is strongly video-orientated with 6K recording at 24fps, along with 4K capture at 60fps. It offers excellent image quality, especially in low...
