The LUMIX S Experience – Reviews from the Professionals


“While the S5 is very very nice and provides a genuine sweet spot between features and weight in a full-frame body, what takes it from nice to sensational are the new f/1.8 S-series lenses designed by Panasonic. This range all feature an f/1.8 aperture with a 67mm thread, and all pretty much the same size and weight. They are very very light, and punch way well above their weight.” – Ewen Bell, Editorial Photographer

“As a photographer, you’re not used to retaining so much detail and colour at such extreme high ISO values and it certainly opens up new visual possibilities. A good example of this is the photo I took of the starry sky above the island of Maui (Hawaii) from a height of 3055 metres. I used a 70mm L-mount lens to capture the multitude of stars in the Orion constellation, including the Betelgeuze star, a red supergiant that can become a supernova at any moment, and also the Orion Nebula (M42) with its beautiful purple tones. The detail is truly impressive.” – Daimon Xanthopoulos, Photographer and Filmmaker

“Using the S1R, one word comes to mind – Resolution! These are the largest image files I’ve ever worked with and they’re amazing. The detail is exquisite and the ability to crop super tight when required is also very useful. The build quality is outstanding. Knowing the gear will keep working even in cold, wet, dusty and snowy conditions give me great peace of mind. Finally, the viewfinder is very impressive. Much brighter and more accurate than other mirrorless cameras I’ve used in the past.” – Lachlan Gardiner, Adventurer, Photographer and Filmmaker

“A Colour Story started out as an idea to see how the LUMIX S1H integrated with the Arri Alexa Mini. I wanted to see how well the S1H works alongside other cameras in the film industry. ’m happy to say that in A Colour Story the S1H worked seamlessly with the Arri during the filming, in post-production and in the end result. If professional filmmakers or studios ask me whether the LUMIX S1H could be used to shoot their next feature film, I can honestly say “Yes, I can show you footage of them working together in perfect harmony.” – Nick Driftwood, Broadcaster, Filmmaker, Actor, Artist and Technologist
