Panasonic LUMIX S1R camera review

Panasonic LUMIX is a brand to figure with around the world when you talk about top of the line advanced SLR cameras. It’s right up there with the exceptional Canon EOS, Sony Alpha and Nikon D arrangement, playing in a similar field and cutting them in certain presentation regions. Like each camera brand, Panasonic too as of late taken a stab at raising the benchmark with the Panasonic LUMIX S1R. The full-outline mirrorless camera entered the Indian market couple of weeks prior at a robust Rs 2,99,990 for the body. We utilized the camera with the 24-105 F4 focal point, which is evaluated at Rs 3,67,990. In any case, before we talk about the camera, it ought to be boisterous and clear that Panasonic LUMIX S1R is carefully for experts and not for lovers. In spite of the fact that that acquires the gadget a way more specialty portion that what you generally get, it brings some genuine tech inside with some impeccable picture and video highlights. Here’s our survey.


As we have seen since recent years, Panasonic normally makes its top of the line LUMIX DSLRs actually quite tough and mechanical and the majority of this stays unaltered with the Panasonic LUMIX S1R. The fabricate is firm as you get a magnesium composite gadget with climate fixing to make it usable in unpleasant conditions. Normally, it dampness evidence, dustproof and even stop confirmation up to – 10 degrees. This bodes well given the measure of voyaging and use dimension of expert shooters. In any case, the heaviness of the DSLR gets an exchange off for every one of these highlights and the fabricate, something which shouldn’t be an issue.

There’s a mobile screen (up to 45-degrees) that pivots towards the correct side and upwards just, electronic viewfinder and

a lot of secure set in the standard style that you find in each other DSLR. There are four dials altogether to fill various needs. You get the card openings on the correct side, battery space beneath and the ports on the left side. What we found not all that standard here (positively) is the help for both SD/SDHC/SDXC card and XQD card. Notwithstanding, we found the card space lock’s opening system bit extraordinary and not especially simple. You need to slide the lock downwards and afterward push the whole hook towards you to open it. A level slide lock would’ve been a superior thought.


For a camera that expenses a lot, one can expect Panasonic LUMIX S1R to give zero protests with regards to picture and video shooting execution. You get a 47MP full-outline CMOS sensor with differentiation identify self-adjust and 5-hub in-body ‘Double IS’ framework that conveys one of the crispest shots when you look in a huge screen. The self-adjust additionally works in dimmest of conditions, even at – 6EV.


We were increasingly awed with the brisk self-adjust exchanging and following the subject while clicking. You can just turn on the camera and shoot a subject without stressing over the concentration or hanging tight for it. The impact of Dual IS framework, despite the fact that not obvious, likewise becomes possibly the most important factor while clicking and shooting recordings notwithstanding the 24-105 (F4) focal point which we were utilizing this while. The credit additionally goes to LUMIX S1R’s profound learning framework that can separate between a human body and a creature to concentrate in like manner.


Adjusting off the incredible spec rundown of Panasonic LUMIX S1R is the huge 3050mAh battery, which in spite of the fact that adds to the strong load of the whole camera, doesn’t exactly execute in the same class as we anticipated. Subsequent to utilizing it for a few days and clicking a few hundred pictures in shifted conditions, we got around 400 shots worth of juice on a normal on SD card. It will be a tiny bit lesser when utilizing the XQD card. What likewise appears to affect the battery life is the OLED EVF that has high goals. We likewise attempted the ‘Power Saver’ method of the LUMIX S1R, which significantly supports the quantity of shots to around 800-900. The mode naturally causes the camera to go on the rest mode once you move your eye far from the viewfinder.
