These two Panasonic LUMIX S series cameras roll with 4K 60p/50p (PAL area only) video recording, rugged durability (when protected sufficiently, of course), and what Panasonic suggests is “expandability.” The LUMIX S1R’s specs start with a 47.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, while the LUMIX S1 sports a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor.
All the way back in September of 2018 we first started seeing official images and details on both cameras, along with a tease of the full-frame revolution on the horizon.
The Lumix S1R has what Panasonic asserts is “the industry’s highest level of resolution in the full-frame mirrorless cameras” with its 47.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (36mm x 24mm).
This camera has its own “High Resolution mode” enabling 187-megapixel ultra-high precision photo capture.
The Lumix S1 has a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (35.6mm x 23.8mm).
The S1 seems to be made for videographers (more than the S1R, anyway), as it sports features that the S1R does not get, like V-Log and HEVC recording.
