Panasonic has introduced a brand new “box-style” Lumix mirrorless digital camera referred to as the DC-BS1H. Comparable in form-factor to the Micro 4 Thirds BGH1, the BS1H packs a a lot bigger 24-megapixel full-frame sensor.
The boxy design prioritizes connectivity and mobility to make use of the digital camera in a greater variety of filmmaking conditions and features a USB 3.1 Kind-C, a 3G-SDI (BNC), and an HDMI Kind-A port. Furthermore, Genlock IN (BNC) and Timecode IN/OUT (BNC) features which allow multi-angle synchronized video recording can be found to construct a scalable system with manufacturer-agnostic exterior displays, rigs, and gimbals. When related to LAN, Energy over Ethernet+ (PoE+) makes it’s straightforward to put in each bodily and electrically. Management over most 12 units of LUMIX BS1H cameras is obtainable utilizing Panasonic PC software program LUMIX Tether for Multicam. The LUMIX BS1H can be geared up with a double SD Card slot for backup recording or relay recording.
It additionally encompasses a tally lamp each on the entrance and rear of the digital camera, 3.5mm audio out and in jack, and is appropriate with an XLR microphone.
The BS1H makes use of a 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor that’s able to capturing as much as 6K decision. It makes use of an OLPF (optical low move filter) to suppress moire and false shade and options Twin Native ISO to reduce noise. Panasonic says that it options glorious low-light efficiency, greater than 14 stops of dynamic vary, V-Log, and extra.
The LUMIX BS1H is able to 6K at 24p, 5.4K at 30p (in a 3:2 facet ratio), or 5.9K at 30p (in a 16:9 facet ratio) video recording. It additionally gives 10-bit 60p 4K and C4K HEVC video recording when utilizing the picture space equal to Tremendous 35mm. The 4:2:2 10-bit 4K at 30p is recordable in H.264 at its full space.
The digital camera makes use of the colorimetry of the VariCam collection and is ready to work alongside different Panasonic Lumix manufacturing cameras in addition to the BGH1 or the S1H — the latter of which it shares lots of the identical specs. Panasonic says that the BS1H’s CMOS sensor has a large shade gamut often called V-Gamut, which is the digital camera’s optimum shade house and achieves a shade house that’s wider than BT.2020. V-Log has log curve traits harking back to unfavourable movie and V-Gamut delivers a shade house even bigger than movie.
The corporate additionally says that the LUMIX BS1H additionally gives real-time topic detection with a complicated deep studying expertise to set exact deal with the goal topics akin to people and animals even transferring at quick speeds.
The BS1H presents variable body charges of as much as 60 frames per second in 4K and 180 frames per second in Full HD 1080p. The BS1H gives an IP streaming operate that permits distant, high-quality picture transmission to the social streaming platform on-line with PC connection over wired LAN. It might stream 4K at 60p (50p) video in H.265. Panasonic says that H.265 has half the bitrate whereas protecting the picture high quality the identical as H.264, which suggests it might present two instances greater picture high quality on the identical bitrate as H.264. Streaming in ultra-high definition 4K at low bitrate is feasible even within the instances the place the bandwidth just isn’t broad sufficient.
The Lumix BS1H can be obtainable in November for $3,500.
