Save $500 on the Panasonic S1H when you buy it direct from Adorama. This full-frame, powerhouse of a camera is 26-megapixels, can shoot in 6K and has 5-axis of in-body image stabilization.
If you were ever unsure about how good the Panasonic S1H is for video perhaps the fact it became the first Netflix-certified mirrorless camera will convince you. Netflix requires cameras to include a true UHD 4K sensor, a capture format with a minimum of 10-bit data rates of 240Mb/s and a log capture transfer function.
The Panasonic S1H might be a little on the chunky side for a mirrorless camera but compared to cinema cameras, it's pretty compact. It's capable of shooting 6K in either a 3:2 ratio at 24p and 10-bit 4:2:0 or 5.9K in a more conventional 1:9 ratio at 30p/25p/24p. It's worth noting, the 6K video feature isn't necessarily to produce 6K movies but so you can crop in during editing for 4K output.
It includes Dual Native ISO, up to 60fps burst shooting mode (for low res jpgs), a fully articulating screen, a high resolution 5.76 million dots viewfinder, dual SD UHS-II card slots, 14+ stops of dynamic and 2 stops of sensor-shift image stabilization.
