Panasonic develops a firmware to expand the video capabilities of the S1H

On the occasion of Panasonic’s cine-mirrorless announcement, the manufacturer had already announced its partnership with Atomos to offer the highest quality in HDMI output recording.

The firmware in development, which will be released next year, will allow RAW output at 5.9K up to 29.97 frames per second with the maximum possible data rate, in combination with an Atomos Ninka V 4K HDR. The Lumix S1H, which will be launched on the market starting from the end of the month, offers for the first time the possibility of using certain mirrorless camera features with a mirrorless system, such as the choice of proportion ratio, anamorphic desqueeze and a resolution that reaches the 6K / 24p in full reading of the sensor, obviously maintaining also the aspect-ratio of 3: 2 and offering innumerable possibilities of crop during assembly. The new firmware will also allow recording in C4K (ie DCI) up to 59.94 frames per second in Apple ProRes RAW.
