LUMIX S Series | Full Frame Without Compromise

Breathless speculation surrounded the top-secret development of our full-frame camera range… but now it’s time to leave the rumours behind and deep-dive into a complete LUMIX S Series reveal!

LUMIX S SERIES

Panasonic Launches LUMIX S Series Full-frame Mirrorless Cameras

Panasonic is proud to introduce full specifications of the much-anticipated LUMIX S1R and S1, our first Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras to have a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor.

The S Series brings acclaimed LUMIX capabilities to full frame shooting. Impressive first-in-class features will expand the scope of the professional photographer – from Dual I.S 2 stabilisation to 187-megapixel High Resolution Mode and Hybrid Log Gamma, multi-format dual memory card slots, and an OLED viewfinder with the world’s highest resolution*1

What’s more, the S Series features Leica Camera’s L-Mount, making it possible to use interchangeable lenses that meet the L-Mount specifications of Alliance partners, Leica Camera and Sigma. Panasonic is also offering three new S Series lenses at launch, with ten lenses to be announced by 2020.

The new LUMIX S Series delivers class-leading image quality, design and ergonomics for demanding professionals; and offers an unequalled videography feature set. This extraordinary camera system will have strong appeal to wedding and event photographers as well as studio and commercial professionals; and in other photographic fields that value the highest image quality possible.

Available in Australia in April 2019.

LUMIX L-MOUNT

We Unveil Three New L-Mount LUMIX S Series Interchangeable Lenses

Panasonic is proud to introduce three new interchangeable lenses based on the L-Mount system for the LUMIX S Series Full-frame Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera. We’re also committed to designing and developing 10 or more lenses by 2020, with a focus on “LUMIX S PRO” lenses and further expanding the S Series lens line-up.

LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 (S-X50) is a large-aperture fixed focal length lens that forms the core of the LUMIX S Series of lenses. LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F4 O.I.S. (S-R70200) is telephoto zoom lens that features high resolution with stunning clarity across the entire zoom range. LUMIX S 24-105mm F4 MACRO O.I.S. (S-R24105) is a versatile standard zoom lens with macro shot capability covering wide-angle to medium telephoto.

All interchangeable lenses in the LUMIX S Series provide high performance. Furthermore, the “LUMIX S PRO” lenses boast the ultimate optical performance, certified by LEICA for clearing stringent LEICA standards.

In a full-frame first, the S-R70200 and S-R24105 lenses are compatible with LUMIX 5-Axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilisation) 2, which delivers powerful stabilisation when used with the new LUMIX S1R and S1. Dual I.S. 2 technology combines 5-axis internal stabilisation with the optical image stabilisation in selected lenses*1, and can support up to 6 stops*2 of image stabilisation – enabling shooting still subjects handheld at much slower shutter speeds and ISO values.

All three new lenses feature a rugged dust/splash-resistant*3 design to withstand use under harsh conditions down to temperatures of -10 degrees Celsius.

Available in Australia from April 2019.

*1  5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 can be used with the LUMIX S1R/S1 as of February 1, 2019.
*2 Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=200mm] when LUMIX S1R is used.
*3 Dust and Splash Resistant. To avoid damage when using lens under these conditions, it must be used in accordance with the associated instructions in the manual.

Kai Stuht x LUMIX S1R

Kai Stuht is the David Lynch of the European photography scene. His dramatically orchestrated visual worlds appeal to the subconscious, involuntarily pulling the viewer into this magical undercurrent. His lighting is unparalleled, with razor sharp Hannibal Lector precision he dissects his themes, only to then put them together again in new contexts.

In 2009 he was awarded a Medal Of The Order Of Australia (OAM) for his services to landscape photography, publishing and the arts, and since establishing his own publishing company in 1992, Duncan has published in excess of 50 photographic books, the majority of which still reprint year after year.

Daimon Xanthopoulos x LUMIX S1
