Panasonic is now coming out with two full-frame mirrorless cameras
Watch out Sony, Panasonic is coming for you with its new S1R and S1 full-frame mirrorless cameras
Mirrorless cameras are beginning to dominate the digital camera market. Having really kick started with Sony’s Alpha series, camera manufacturers everywhere are starting to roll out their own versions of the lightweight powerhouses. It wasn’t too long ago that both Canon and Nikon revealed their new mirrorless cameras.
Early Tuesday, the Japanese camera manufacturer Panasonic announced that it will be releasing two full-frame L-Mount mirrorless cameras sometime next year. The 47-megapixel Lumix S1R and the 24-megapixel S1 will both have built-in image stabilization, 4K 60fps, beautiful hi-resolution EVFs, tilting LCDs, double card slots and much more.
In its effort to dive into the full-frame mirrorless market, Panasonic is planning to partner with both Sigma and Leica. Both cameras will be able to use Leica's full-frame-L mount SL system and Sigma is in the works pulling together a line of Art Lenses that are sure to give an amazing look.
While the S1R and S1 already look a lot better than the mirrorless cameras offered by Nikon and Canon, it will be interesting to see how the new systems compete with Sony’s A7R iii and A7 iii. From what we’ve seen, the video capabilities of the new Panasonic line looks really, really good. While the release date has not yet been set, you can expect the S1R and S1 to come out sometime next year.
