Panasonic has announced the development of another camera in their full frame mirrorless lineup: the Lumix S1H, designed specifically for film production and touting high video specs.

The camera records 6K/24p in 3:2 format, or 5.9K/30p in 16:9. It also enables full-frame 10-bit 4K or Cinema 4K at 60p, and as of writing, is the first full-frame interchangeable lens system digital camera in the world to do so. The S1H also has no recording limits in any format (provided the camera doesn’t overheat). The camera will also include V-log/V-Gamut, which will provide up to 14 stops of dynamic range.
