Panasonic introduces a new LUMIX S-series camera, which, as it claims, "combines the video quality of a professional camera and the high mobility of a mirrorless camera". This is because it is capable of recording 6K video at up to 24fps, which still maintaining a full-frame unit's form factor. It will be released some time after summer in 2019.

Panasonic has announced an update to the LUMIX S line of cameras, the LUMIX S1H. The company claims that it is the first digital single-lens mirrorless unit capable of 3:2 6K/24p recording (as of May 31, 2019). This full-frame camera is also the world's first to 10-bit 4K/C4K (or 4096x2160) 60p recording. This is also a feature of the high-end Micro Four Thirds LUMIX GH5 or GH5S cameras.

The LUMIX S1H also has V-Log footage compatibility in common with the GH5 or GH5S. This is also found in  Panasonic's Cinema VariCam. Therefore, the same OEM asserts that this new unit is capable of professional-grade recording, just in a full-frame camera body. The S1H is also rated to handle the 4:3 Anamorphic format, and has a V-Log/V-Gamut with a wide dynamic range of 14+ stops, which, again, puts it approximately on par with the Cinema VariCam.

Alternatively, the new Panasonic mirrorless camera can also record at 5.9K/30p with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Its maker has not yet released pricing or a release date for the LUMIX S1H. However, those interested in the product could view it right now - provided they are at or are planning to attend the Cine Gear Expo 2019, a professional camera equipment conference taking place at Paramount Studios in LS until tomorrow (June 2, 2019).
