In Topic: New Panasonic S1 & S1R FF Camera for Videography?

26 September 2018 - 05:33 AM

Cameras seen at Photokina are just (ugly) 3D printed mockups. 

IMHO it was move trying to stop/pause people from jumping on the Canikon bandwagon: a way to say "I'm here too".


I'm under the impression that specs will change a lot before we will see a real SR1 on the block.

Again a new mount announced in few weeks?!?

Canon => RF mount

Nikon => Z mount

Panasonic => L mount

That's all? Or Olympus will come soon with something ?


Frankly this is a mess, we'll have to be stuck with on brand.

or just keep buying EF mount that should be compatible with the three new comers.


All of them are strong competitor and all of their mounts are patented hence you have to pay licenses to use it. So "owning" your mount is a savvy decision.


Panasonic owns Leica. full-frame Leica SL and APS-C Leica CL and TL-series cameras use L mount already so it makes sense using it.

Canon and Nikon had to introduce a minimum set of lenses along with their new mirrorless cameras. Panasonic will adopt the same strategy but it can already use the 10 Leica lens already available. Moreover, with the Sigma alliance will have affordable lens asap: Sigma needs "simply" adapt their existing lens to the new mount.

In my wet dreams I always imagined a 9/10 mm prime lens.

In the past I used the Oly 12mm F2 on land and it's amazing. Underwater it's too narrow for my taste.


It seems a behemoth, really.

If it's possible to remotely control the camera via LANC protocol or USB, I guess it should be very easy for Easydive to produce a controller for one of their housing.

But ext. monitor & co. it's out of budget for me :)
I'll be interested in the vacuum valve.

Let me know.
