GTC sponsor Panasonic has announced the release of its new LUMIX Mirrorless Camera BS1H. The LUMIX BS1H is a versatile box-style camera combining the cinema-quality video performance of the LUMIX S1H into the easy-to-deploy box-style profile.

It features a 24.2 MP full frame sensor with dual ISO technology and is aimed at a range of specialised uses, particularly live-streaming, remote and multi-camera video as well as cinema uses. A wide range of recording formats is supported including RAW support for Blackmagic recorders and is said to offer 14+ stops of dynamic range when using V-log. According to Panasonic, the BS1H's colour gamut, known as V-Gamut, is wider than the standard BT.2020 colour gamut.

The camera is available for pre-order now, with an RRP of £2,999 (inc. VAT), and is expected to ship from mid-November.

Firmware updates for Lumix G Series cameras

Panasonic has also announced it will release new firmware updates for its LUMIX G Series mirrorless cameras to enhance their functions and usability. The firmware version 2.5 for DC-G9, version 2.2 for DC-GH5S and version 2.3 for DC-BGH1 will be available to download from the LUMIX Global Customer Support website on 4 November 2021.

The new firmware update includes the capability to capture RAW video data on GH5S and BGH1 cameras that can be output over HDMI to save Blackmagic RAW on the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR.
