Cons:Weight, paid video software, autofocus not at most
Opinion:I used this machine for a few days, but I still wonder why I have to spend three times the market price of the Sony A7II and a lot more than the AIII to have the same old-generation sensor. Sure holds the Isos, but I would also like to see with a number of pixels from apsc. In short, Panasonic has "wise" the soil of the full format with a product certainly good, but with too much already seen and that in fact has its main use in the video field so that it can be assimilated to an evolved camcorder with which to take even photos.
Pros:Ergonomics, body that gives a feeling of great solidity, weight (for me is not a disadvantage), spectacular dynamic range (in my opinion colors very close to Leica), ultra operating speed, in most cases churns out ready-to-use jpeg, Raw excellently workable. Fantastic silent snap.
Cons:Autofocus absolutely to be reviewed, unworthy for such a machine body.
Opinion:I wanted to try the S1 for quite some time for a purchase in place of the excellent Sony A7III (having big hands I prefer large bodies with excellent grip). Tried for a week in all the shooting situations i usually try, thanks to the local retailer who had a demo along with the 24/105 F4 kit lens. Well, fantastic machine body, excellent ergonomics, immediate familiarity in the controls. Great if you use in the studio,still life, portraits, panoramas. One excessive insurmountable flaw: autofocus. Problems in low light or artificial/dark light areas. Very uncertain tracking in all the modes of autofocus provided (even single center point), tried the theaters for a classical ballet tended to focus on the bottom in 70% of cases (unexplained) although several meters deep from the foreground. Tested together with the Nikon D750 that I carried with me for safety, the Nikon autofocus with the same settings did not miss a beat. In conclusion, gorgeous machine, if Panasonic in the future will update the autofocus with a better performing one, I will definitely buy it.
Pros:Ergonomics, weight and stabilization, WB car, dynamic range, fantastic and customizable JPEG, Arri colors, fast in changing settings, touch screens, connectivity, sturdy, you can soak it in the lake and stay quiet, V-Log.
Cons:Unreliable autofocus for videos, lent photo burst for those who play sports with 6fps, limited and slow optical park (not a problem for me, I use only two lenses)
Opinion:This, for my work, is the ultimate camera/camera. It takes fantastic photos and almost always in focus, only at 105mm is a little slow focus in some critical situations. Video side is sublime, I preferred it to bmpc4k for Ibis, tropicalization, Arri colors and I am hugely satisfied! If they were to distribute more affordable lenses, surely the Lumix S system will see the light... otherwise they risk sinking, given the competition.
Pros:Massive and very ergonomic body, excellent image and video quality, perfect stabilization, absent noise, 360-degree customization of controls, very valid and highly parametrid autofocus, clear and well-organized menus even if very rich, excellent monitors and sights
Cons:Paid video extension a bit annoying.
Opinion:Aimed at the release and purchased months later on the occasion of the black friday at a really affordable price, it is the only camera at the moment that allows you to combine photos and videos at very high levels without having to give up anything (with the exception of not having the possibility to draw in the used for optics, being a new system) and without having to open a mortgage. I've been using it for a week, I'm from Canon 6D, and I have to say it's another world, even in image quality and noise management where I thought I found little difference. The files are super workable, clean and defined, the noise does not even emerge to look for it specially (an abyss of difference from the 6D). Beautiful colors (also credit to the "kit" lens 24-105 which is truly superb at all focal lengths), stabilization that allows you to shoot at incredible times, large and excellently functioning viewfinder, not to mention the monitor, embellished by the possibility of various movements. The only flaw (perhaps my lack, at the moment I did not find features that were helpful in the menus and in the booklet) is the use of the monitor under the sun that caused me some difficulties due to the low brightness. The battery I thought lasted less, instead it has a very satisfying life even without setting various modes of energy saving. In the next few days I will thoroughly test my Canon 70-200 f 2.8 IS II with the Sigma mc-21 adapter, let's see if the eyepatch allows a sufficient AF for use in the theater.
Pros:Machine body designed for professional use. Performance and fast AF with many customizations. Sensor with stabilization effectiveness. Excellent dynamic range and ISO-Ali Seal
Cons:Maybe excessive weight but it is a PRO. Optical system only with a few objectives.
Opinion:I have considered this system still very new only after seeing the results and ease of use. The files are excellent with colors and definition at high level, shooting in JPEG you get good results immediately. Developing in RAW you get a lot of detail. The body is very professional with keys and customizable functions. The battery life is very good compared to other brands. The Sigma adapter ring allows you to space in the optical park with a Canon mount, which amplifies the choice of use. The viewfinder is really good maybe the best there is on the market. The 5-axis stabilized sensor allows you to shoot with almost absurd times. I think it's one of the better Mirrorlex FF's on the market. The Kit Col 24-105 does its duty in most situations, while the 70-200 is really very good with a very good stabilization and focusing speed. I have been using this machine for about a month and I find it very good. A car to try that will give you a lot of satisfaction.
