Panasonic Lumix S1R review


A mighty fine flagship

Stunning, best-in-class viewfinder ; Excellent detail, even with 'kit' lens ; Superb build quality ; Very effective image stabilization ; Great noise control at high ISOs ; Buffer depth surprisingly good

Heavy and large body ; AF system behind competition ; Eyecup can get in the way of LCD ; Some awkward controls ; No real size/weight advantage over DSLR ; Battery life not great

The Panasonic Lumix S1R is blessed with an effective image stabilization system, a cracking EVF and a solid build, while its image and video quality also impress. The AF system is behind its peers, however, and the camera doesn't really exhibit any...

Panasonic Lumix S1R Review


Panasonic Lumix S1R Review - We review the 47mp Panasonic Lumix S1R - the full-frame mirrorless camera from Panasonic, with built-in image stabilisation and multi-shot mode that can shoot 187mp images!

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R


The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R delivers impeccable high-resolution images thanks to a stabilized 47MP full-frame sensor, but it's heavier and more expensive than competing models.

Excellent 47MP full-frame sensor. 5-axis sensor stabilization. Big, sharp EVF. Good control system. Backlit control buttons. Protected from dust and splashes. Top information LCD. 4K video at up to 60fps.

More expensive than competitors. Obnoxiously heavy. Contrast focus limits tracking speed and burst rate. Limited lens selection.

Bottom Line: The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R delivers impeccable high-resolution images thanks to a stabilized 47MP full-frame sensor, but it's heavier and more expensive than competing models.

Panasonic S1R Review


Panasonic's first attempt at a 35mm full-frame mirrorless camera is an impressive one, offering a long list of mouth-watering features, superb image quality, and great handling. The S1R is definitely a serious contender to the Sony A7R III and Nikon Z7.

Panasonic S1R Review


The Lumix S1R is Panasonic's first high-resolution full-frame mirrorless camera. Compared to the company's long tradition of Micro Four Thirds cameras, the new full-frame Lumix S system is a big jump up in terms of sensor size.
