Announced at Cine Gear, the Panasonic S1H set the bar for high echelon full-frame mirrorless cameras that are serious about the professional video crowd. With headline heavy specs such as 4K 10bit 4:2:2 and 6K full-frame capture, the S1H got a lot of peoples attention at the initial camera announcement back in June.

Panasonic recently revealed more official promo videos shot on the Panasonic S1H as to give potential new users an idea of the image quality coming out of the camera.
