Apart from the 6K capable sensor, the Lumix S1H also offers dual native ISO technology that can help to capture sharp images with accurate details. It even supports the L mount interchangeable lenses, which means that it is future proof.

Panasonic has included the Dual Native ISO technology on the Lumix S1H, which offers ISO 640 and ISO 4000 for capturing great footage even in low-light conditions. It also supports Full V-Log/V-Gamut with more than 14 stops of dynamic range. The CMOS sensor is coupled with Venus Engine optimum signal processor. The camera also offers unlimited recording time or as long as the memory card supports. It gets dual memory slots for adding more memory so you can record for longer.
Coming to stabilisation, the Lumix S1H comes with 5-axis body image stabilisation. It also supports the 2-axis optical image stabilisation that’s found in the Lumix S series of lenses.
