The new Panasonic S1 and S1R are the latest entries into the highly competitive full frame mirrorless camera market, and they bring some very unique and interesting features to the table. This great video offers a helpful first look at the cameras and some of their features.
Coming to you from Lok Cheung, this great video features a first look at Panasonic's new full frame mirrorless cameras. Perhaps one of the most interesting features of the S1 line is their autofocus with machine learning. I'll admit I was cautiously excited to hear of this technology being implemented in a camera, as it's certainly something that has a lot of potential to improve autofocus performance for photographers if it works well. It seems Cheung was fairly impressed by it and pretty satisfied with the performance of the camera overall. While more rigorous testing is obviously needed before we can know just how effective the system is, it could be quite the boon for many genres of photo and video work. Along with some other features and performance, it seems like Panasonic has created a couple of great cameras that could be good options for those looking for a new system. Check out the video above for Cheung's full thoughts.
