Panasonic LUMIX S1R - Highest Resolution Full-Frame Mirrorless:
Powered by a new Venus Engine, the LUMIX S1R incorporates a high-speed, high-precision AF system ensuring the camera meets the exacting demands of professional photographers in all shooting situations. To capture the decisive moment, the photographer frames the image using the world’s highest resolution electronic viewfinder with unrivalled clarity via a 5.76-million-dot OLED display. Built around the wide diameter L-Mount the LUMIX S1R is designed to provide uncompromising image quality by combining best-in-class detail resolution and photographic control, with outstanding image stabilisation and advanced video recording.
Ground Breaking Image Detail:
The detail gathering ability of the full-frame 47.3-million-pixel CMOS-sensor (36 x 24 mm) is boosted by absence of a low pass filter, ensuring the finest textures in any scene will be captured accurately.
- New micro lens design to ensure best efficiency
- Low noise even at high ISO
- High resolution mode for 187-Megapixel images
New aspherical micro lenses over each pixel improve the light-gathering abilities of the sensor so low noise levels are maintained at high ISO settings. The LUMIX S1R offers an ISO range of up to ISO 25.600, making it ideal for working in low light conditions. For situations demanding greater resolution than 47.3-million-pixels, photographers can create incredible 187-million-pixel images using the camera’s High Resolution Mode. This feature combines information recorded in eight exposures that are taken as the Body I.S. system makes adjustments to the sensor position. The result is a 16.736 x 11.168-pixel RAW-file bursting with information. A feature of the High Resolution Mode is the option to supress motion blur.
Advanced Image Stabilisation:
The 5-axis Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) system compensates for the effects of camera shake to make shutter speeds of up to 5.5-stop slower than usual safe to use. Combined with the 2-axis O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) in the LUMIX S Series lenses the Dual I.S. 2 system increases the level of compensation to 6-stop, and works to eliminate the effects of a wide variety of camera movement types in both still and video photography. Making use of more sophisticated technology, vibration measurements are taken not only from a gyrosensor but also using information from the image sensor itself and from an accelerometer sensor in the camera. To help photographers remove sources of camera shaking, an I.S. Status Scope has been added that displays a graphic interpretation of vibration.
