Panasonic has revealed the final spec for its two new full-frame mirrorless cameras, the S1 and S1R. Both record 4K at 60p and offer blazing-fast 180fps frame rates in HD - the highest of any full frame camera. The lower-resolution S1 is ideal for filmmaker and will output full pro-spec V Log footage in 4:2:2 10-bit to an external recorder via a paid, forthcoming firmware update. Both use the Leica L-mount, so Panasonic's new S-series lenses or Leica SL lenses will fit.
