Panasonic Lumix S1 & S1R Virtual Launch Party!

with Shiv Verma, Don Komarechka, Matthew Sutherland and Jordan Bunch

Today is the day! Panasonic has now officially joined the ranks of the FULL-FRAME sensors with the official launch of their new Lumix S1 and and S1R full-frame mirrorless bodies. The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 and S1R are the company’s mid and high-end full frame mirrorless camera built around the brand new L-mount that was created in association with Leica, Sigma and Panasonic.

In this impromptu interview I’m joined by several Lumix Ambassadors to discuss these new cameras, and how they stack up to the competition. We also discuss the micro-four-thirds format and Panasonics commitment to that platform.
