Product code: 82912010
Panasonic’s first full-frame mirrorless camera produces exceptionally realistic images, both for stills and movies. A 24.2MP sensor captures sharp detail at high ISO, with 5-axis image stabilisation. Shoot 4K movie footage, and record extraordinary colour depth with 10-bit internal video recording. Compatible with L-Mount lenses, advanced technologies mean super-fast, precise autofocus, and it’s constructed to operate seamlessly in the great outdoors.
24.2 megapixel full frame sensor with Venus Engine
Its 24.2 Megapixel MOS sensor offers wide dynamic range, and sharp, natural colour, even at high ISO settings. With sensitivity up to ISO 51200, it produces equally good results in low light. Powered by the Venus Engine, Multi-pixel Luminance generation and Intelligent Detail processing render intense contrast and brightness. And Three-dimensional Colour control delivers rich colour across the full spectrum, with high-precision Noise Reduction. Shoot up to 9fps continuously.
5-Axis Dual Image Stabilisation 2 compensates for camera-shake when working handheld, so you can be sure of crisp and steady imagery at all times. It provides up to 6 stops of benefit, and can even compensate for lenses without O.I.S.
4K 60p movies
Utilising the whole of the full frame sensor, capture 4K UHD movie footage at 60p. And with outstanding heat dissipation, you can even shoot 4K (30/24p) or Full HD with no time limit (excludes high speed recording), ideal for more professional usages like documentaries and footage of the natural world.
It can perform 4K 24/30p 4:2:2 10-bit internal video recording, capable of capturing over a billion colours. This enormous colour data maximises post-production potential, making it possible to optimise colours within the grade.
Advanced Recognition Technologies
Sensor, engine and lens work together to deliver high-precision focus from every angle. Panasonic’s Depth from Defocus tech means precise autofocussing in as little as 0.08 seconds. Advanced technologies distinguish human bodies and animals, with high-performance tracking staying locked on moving subjects.
With 5,760k Dots, the Real Viewfinder offers supreme resolution, making it feel like you’re looking through an optical viewfinder. Ideal for perfect framing and precision focusing.
Standard zoom lens included
The 24-105mm standard zoom lens it is supplied with covers a wide focal length covering wide-angle to mid-telephoto. With a minimum focus distance of 0.3m, it’s ideal for all styles from vast landscapes, engaging portraits and close macro photography.
The S1’s magnesium alloy body is durable, and moisture and dust resistant. Operating in temperatures down to -10°C, it’s built to perform reliably in a wide variety of environmental conditions.
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture.

Unpackaged weight of the product
- Approx. 899g (Body only)
- Wi-Fi enabled
- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
- Zoom (optical)
Allows you to zoom the image closer to the subject. Optical zooms feature physically moving lens components, so it maintains the image quality as you zoom in. Digitial zooms essentially crop an existing image, so may lose image quality as they zoom in
