The Panasonic S1.

I just got around to reading Steve Huff’s review of the Panasonic S1, and I must say that two things really, really impressed me:

  1. The colour reproduction at high ISO.
  2. The dynamic range.

Generally speaking, the sample images have a special look – I can immediately tell that there is something different (in a good way) going on there.

I am not interested in the camera per se (because I prefer rangefinders), but I am interested in working with sensors like this.

    A great and heavy pro, at least 1.7kg with the zoom! hmmmm? …appealing images!
    Happy Easter!

    The grass is always greener… 🙂 However, I agree that this camera does take it up a notch. In some cases, I’d be tempted to raise the ISO (or underexpose) just to get some texture in the image.

    It beats the Sony A9 at high ISO, but that camera has a very specific purpose, and it’s the best of its kind.
