Las Vegas, NV—Panasonic unveiled additional key features for its new Lumix S full-frame mirrorless cameras at CES 2019. The Lumix S full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses, which debuted at photokina, will ship the end of March 2019.
Additional Lumix S Features
Panasonic revealed that the SR1 and S1 provide high dynamic range still photo mode (HLG photo mode). This function allows the cameras to capture images with a wider dynamic range. “By reproducing both glaring lights and dark shadows that are likely to be overexposed or underexposed, the Lumix S achieves rich, precise color expression as close as possible to visual memory,” Panasonic announced.
Moreover, the HLG photos are in the HSP file format. The user can play back these images on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4K TV via an HDMI cable connection as well as other HLG-compliant devices. The new function is also effective for photographers’ photo presentations.
In addition, the Lumix S cameras feature high resolution mode. Taking advantage of the cameras’ body image stabilizer (IS) mechanism, eight consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor.
The cameras synthesize eight images into a single image by utilizing the new Venus engine. The engine also boasts high-speed signal processing. Featuring precise details, the integrated image is highly realistic. This mode also allows photographers to shoot natural landscapes or fine art objects with delicate details.
Furthermore, when moving subjects are in the scene, sub options are available to suppress motion blur. As a result, photographers can use this mode in the same way as they would shoot in a normal photo shooting mode.
