When it comes to high-end photography, mirrorless cameras are all the rage. In fact, the technology is so en vogue, that Panasonic — previously bucking the trend — has finally caved in and unveiled their first ever full-frame mirrorless cameras, called the S1 and the S1R.
You might think that getting into the game this late is going to be a bit of a problem, but these cameras come with a pretty big added benefit: they’ll be released with immediate access to a suite of available lenses, thanks to the fact that they’re built on Leica’s L-Mount platform. In fact, Panasonic also plans to release another 10 lenses within the year, ranging from 50-200mm. The tech within the S-series cameras is also impressive, as they are said to be able to shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second — making for buttery-smooth full-HD video footage. Other features include dual image stabilization, onboard slots for XQD and SD cards, and image capturing of up to 47 megapixels. These cameras are set to release in early 2019, but no pricing has been released yet.
