A firmware upgrade to the camera will unlock the shooting of stunning V-Log 10-bit 4:2:2 4Kp60 footage directly to the Atomos Ninja V 5-inch HDR monitor- recorder from the camera via HDMI. Note that this is the full Panasonic V-Log and not the V-Log L variant found on some other Lumix cameras. Being able to record high quality Apple ProRes and AVID DNx editing formats direct from the Lumix S1’s full-frame sensor using the Ninja V makes for a formidable combination capable of truly cinematic images.
V-Log gamma support on Ninja V takes this one step further and turns the Lumix S1 into a world- class filmmaking tool for independent filmmakers that has the same beautiful aesthetic as higher end kit costing 10x the price. With the Lumix S1 priced at less than $2500 US and Ninja V at $695 US, the two combined are easily the most affordable way for filmmakers to get jaw dropping full-frame images at 4kp60 in 10-bit, unlocking the full creative potential for perfect computer finishing.
