      Announcement: 02/01/2019 MSRP: $2,499

     

    Lumix S1 is an uncompromising camera which, being the first first full-frame mirrorless Panasonic camera, overcomes the barriers which cannot be overcome by other producers of cameras, despite their long-term presence on the market. S1, thanks to its speed, effectiveness and rational price will perfectly fulfil its role in each kind of photography. As it possesses very advanced video functions, it can compete with video cameras, which significantly exceed its value.

    PANASONIC LUMIX S1 VIDEO REVIEW

     

     

    COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR CAMERAS

    By creating Lumix S1, Panasonic has constructed a direct rival of the cameras such as Nikon Z 6 and Sony a7 III. All three cameras have sensors with very similar parameters. The main differences concern, above all, a number of advanced functions and a price.
