Panasonic Bringing 4K 60p & Dual Memory Card Slots To Lumix DSLRs

Also developing at least 10 more lenses

Panasonic introduced two new DSLRs with 35mm full-frame image sensors at the Photokina show in Cologne, Germany, this week.

The Lumix S1R and the S1, which feature 4K 60p video recording and a Dual IS image-stabilization system, were developed to address the growing desire from consumers to share higher-quality images and video, Panasonic said.

Other features include a double slot for XQD memory cards and SD memory cards, a first for Panasonic; a rugged triaxial tilt LCD; and Leica Camera’s L-Mount, enabling the use of compatible interchangeable lenses.

Panasonic also said it will introduce more than 10 of its own compatible lenses by 2020, including a 50mm/F1.4 fixed-focus lens, 24-105mm standard zoom lens, and 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens.

The company also announced it is developing a Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm F1.7 lens for its Lumix G series of Micro Four Thirds DSLRs. It’s also readying a global service and support program for Lumix users, known as Lumix Pro, slated for early October.
