Panasonic S1H: price, specs, release date confirmed

Panasonic has revealed that its new firmware update for the Lumix S1H will enable it to output a maximum 5.9K/29.97p RAW video data to the Atomos Ninja V.

Panasonic announced its development project with Atomos back on 31 August, and now says the new firmware will be released sometime in early 2020. Panasonic says:

Panasonic has established a good partnership with Atomos, a global company that creates video equipment for professional film creators, through the development of digital cameras such as the achievement of 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video output over HDMI in the LUMIX GH Series of cameras.

Working together with Atomos, a new firmware program that enables maximum 5.9K/29.97p as well as C4K*3/59.94p RAW video data over HDMI has been developed. With this firmware program, the Apple ProRes RAW can be recorded on Atomos Ninja V, which is one of Panasonic’s commitments to provide innovative solutions for professional film creation.
