After joining the L-Mount Alliance in 2018, Panasonic initially announced two mirrorless full-frame camera bodies – the affordable allrounder LUMIX S1 and the high-resolution LUMIX S1R aimed towards photographers.
Last year, Panasonic added the video-centric LUMIX S1H which features an active cooling system, 6K video, RAW output over HDMI, and more. Make sure to read and watch our S1H review and our S1H Lab Test.
Since the S1H release, Panasonic did not release any new full-frame mirrorless camera. Now the Japanese company teased a new camera called LUMIX S5 that will officially be announced in two weeks.
