Panasonic announces full frame 6K BS1H box-style camera
Panasonic has announced the BS1H, a new camera that takes many of the internals of the S1H and puts them into a familiar, box-like form factor.
Inside is a 24.2 megapixel 35mm full-frame sensor that captures 6K resolution. The camera has an OLPF (Optical Low Pass Filter) that suppresses moire. It features inbuilt Dual Native ISO technology along with a wide dynamic range of 14+ stops, V-Log and more. You can watch the announcement livestream below.
The LUMIX BS1H is capable of 6K/24p, 5.4K/30p (3:2 aspect ratio) or 5.9K/30p (16:9 aspect ratio) high-resolution video recording. It also has 10-bit 60p 4K/C4K HEVC video recording when using the image area equivalent to Super 35mm.
Although the BS1H doesn't shoot RAW video natively, when combined with either the Atomos Ninja V or Ninja V+ it's capable of recording up to 5.9Kp30, 4.1Kp60, and 3.5Kp50 anamorphic ProRes RAW.
With USB 3.1 Type C, 3G-SDI and HDMI Type A terminals, it will link to a number of accessories, and also features a dual SD Card slot for back-up video recording or relay recording.
There’s a 3.5 audio in/out compatible with the XLR mic DMW-XLR1. It can also connect through Bluetooth 4.2 (BLE) and 2.4 GHz WiFi for transferring files or live streaming, and remote control using application software.
Available from November 2021, the LUMIX BS1H is priced at $5,299 RRP.
