Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R


The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R delivers impeccable high-resolution images thanks to a stabilized 47MP full-frame sensor, but it's heavier and more expensive than competing models.

Excellent 47MP full-frame sensor. 5-axis sensor stabilization. Big, sharp EVF. Good control system. Backlit control buttons. Protected from dust and splashes. Top information LCD. 4K video at up to 60fps.

More expensive than competitors. Obnoxiously heavy. Contrast focus limits tracking speed and burst rate. Limited lens selection.

Bottom Line: The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R delivers impeccable high-resolution images thanks to a stabilized 47MP full-frame sensor, but it's heavier and more expensive than competing models.

Panasonic Lumix S1R review


A mighty fine flagship

Stunning, best-in-class viewfinder ; Excellent detail, even with 'kit' lens ; Superb build quality ; Very effective image stabilization ; Great noise control at high ISOs ; Buffer depth surprisingly good

Heavy and large body ; AF system behind competition ; Eyecup can get in the way of LCD ; Some awkward controls ; No real size/weight advantage over DSLR ; Battery life not great

The Panasonic Lumix S1R is blessed with an effective image stabilization system, a cracking EVF and a solid build, while its image and video quality also impress. The AF system is behind its peers, however, and the camera doesn't really exhibit any...

Panasonic S1R Review


Panasonic's first attempt at a 35mm full-frame mirrorless camera is an impressive one, offering a long list of mouth-watering features, superb image quality, and great handling. The S1R is definitely a serious contender to the Sony A7R III and Nikon Z7.

Panasonic Lumix S1R Review


Panasonic Lumix S1R Review - We review the 47mp Panasonic Lumix S1R - the full-frame mirrorless camera from Panasonic, with built-in image stabilisation and multi-shot mode that can shoot 187mp images!

The Panasonic Lumix S1R offers a high-resolution 47mp full-frame sensor, and as part of the L-Mount alliance offers a range of lenses, from Panasonic, Leica, and Sigma. Unlike Canon and Nikon’s mirrorless systems, you don’t have to wait for one brand...

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R (Profi-DSLM, Test)


Über das wuchtige Äußere der Panasonic Lumix S1R lässt sich trefflich streiten, vom Gewicht des Systems ganz zu schweigen. Über jeden Zweifel erhaben sind dafür die tolle Bildqualität und der riesige Funktionsumfang der DSLM. Und auch in Sachen...

Herausragende Bildqualität und gutes Rauschverhalten;Umfangreiche und leistungsstarke Videomodi;Bildstabilisator mit High-Res-Funktion;Ausstattung und Handling auf Profi-Niveau

Großes, schweres und sehr wuchtiges Gehäuse;Verhältnismäßig kurze Serienbildfolgen;Autofokus pumpt bei langen Brennweiten

Panasonic Lumix S1R und S1 im Test - PC Magazin


47-Megapixel-Sensor, Videos mit 4K und 60 B/s, ein OLED-Sucher mit 1,9 Millionen RGB-Bildpunkten. Oder 24-Megapixel-Sensor plus identischer Kameraausstattung? Panasonic fordert die Konkurrenz mit gleich zwei seinen spiegellosen KB-Kameras Lumix S1R und...

harmoniert mit schweren Telezooms ; „state-­of-­the-­art“ bei technischer Ausstattung und Bedienkonzept ; Sperrschalter, um Bedienelemente mit Ausnahme des Auslösers zu sperren

Panasonic Lumix S1R: ColorFoto Testurteil : 79,5 Punkte (20 Punkte über Durchschnitt); Kauftipp: Kleinbild -- Panasonic Lumix S1: ColorFoto Testurteil : 77,5 Punkte (18 Punkte über Durchschnitt); Kauftipp: Preis-Leistung

Panasonic Lumix S1R (Profi-DSLM, Praxis-Test)


Die Panasonic Lumix S1 und S1R liefern im Praxis-Test eine durchwegs überzeugende Vorstellung ab. Bildqualität, Video-Modus, zahlreiche Direkttasten an einem hochwertigen Magnesiumgehäuse sowie ein flotter und meist treffsicherer Autofokus begeistern....

Wertiges Gehäuse;Bildqualität erstklassig;Schneller Autofokus inkl. Augen-Erkennung;Reiesiger und extrem scharfer OLED-Sucher;Integrierter Bildstabilisator

Autofokus pumpt manchmal unter AF-C;Kurze Akkulaufzeit;Für eine DSLM großes Gehäuse

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R


Liksom den enklare S1 har S1R måt­ten 14,9 x 11,0 x 9,7 centimeter och en vikt på 1020 gram.

Häftig upplösning och utmärkt brushantering. Fantastisk sökare. Effektiv bildstabilisering. Priset är högt jämfört med konkurrenterna. Aufokusen kunde vara bättre.
