Lumix BS1H Full-Frame Box Camera

The Lumix BS1H is a full-frame box camera capable of delivering spectacular 5.9K full-frame recording for cinema. Packing many of the great features of the Lumix S1H, but in a small box form. The Panasonic BS1H features a powerful ​24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor (35.6 mm x 23.8mm) that captures 6K resolution.

With an active resolution of 6,024 x 4,016, the new BS1H from Panasonic delivers approximately 24.2 million photosites.

Adoption of an OLPF (Optical Low Pass Filter) suppresses moire and false colour. The image sensor with Dual Native ISO in the BS1H minimises noise generation by choosing an optimal circuit to use according to the sensitivity before gain processing.

In combination with optimum signal processing by the Venus Engine, it assures maximum ISO 51200 high sensitivity recording with minimum noise.

Maximising the use of the pixels in the full-frame image sensor, the LUMIX BS1H is capable of 6K/24p, 5.4K/30p (3:2 aspect ratio) or 5.9K/30p (16:9 aspect ratio) high- resolution, smooth video recording.

It also provides 10-bit 60p 4K/C4K*1 HEVC video recording when using the image area equivalent to Super 35mm. The 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p is recordable in H.264 at its full area. Its high-resolution data can also be used for creating 4K videos with higher image quality or for cropping images in 4K.

Dynamic range measures the luminance range that a digital camera can capture. Your new Lumix BS1H delivers 14+ stops of Dynamic Range with a V-Log, which are virtually the same as those of the Panasonic Cinema Cameras, to precisely reproduce everything from dark to bright areas.

The ability to capture accurate colours and rich skin tones is a must for any filmmaker. The Panasonic BS1H imports the renowned colorimetry of the VariCam line- up of cinema cameras. The BS1H contains V-Log/V-Gamut capture to deliver a high dynamic range and broad colours.

In addition to HDR (High Dynamic Range) video recording, the camera records video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and the user can now choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style.

The LUMIX BS1H full-frame box camera also provides real-time subject detection with an advanced deep learning technology to set precise focus on the target subject such as humans and animals even if they are moving fast.

A wide variety of recording formats, frame rates and resolutions in maximum 6K

The LUMIX BS1H is capable of 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 60p/50p HDMI output. Adopting a new heat dispersion structure, it achieves unlimited video recording in a variety of recording formats, including 4:3 Anamorphic mode, to meet professional needs.

Moreover, with two options for RAW workflow, the BS1H satisfies wide-ranging creative requirements. [5.9K] / [4K] / [Anamorphic (4:3) 3.5K] 12-bit RAW video data can be output over HDMI to save Apple ProRes RAW on the Atomos Ninja V or save Blackmagic RAW on the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR.

The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets users record overcranked/undercranked video in C4K/4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower in 24p) and FHD (180 fps, maximum 7.5x slower in 24p). The minimum frame rate for quick motion video is 2 fps. In addition, HFR (High Frame Rate) video with sound is also recordable even when using auto focus. A variety of effects are available for producing a slow-motion video through the post production process.

To support a growing need of live streaming, the BS1H provides an IP streaming function that enables distant, high-quality image transmission to a social streaming platform online with PC connection over wired LAN.

Notably, the LUMIX BS1H can stream 4K 60p (50p) video in H.265. The H.265 realises half the bitrate while keeping the image quality the same, which means it can provide 2x higher image quality at the same bitrate as H.264. Streaming in ultra-high definition 4K at low bitrate is possible even in the cases where the bandwidth is not broad enough.

A wide range of connections for unlimited possibilities

With the body frame composed of aluminium and magnesium alloy, the Panasonic LUMIX BS1H is a compact and lightweight yet durable box-style camera and it provides a variety of practical ports.

In addition to a USB 3.1 Type-C, the BS1H is equipped with a 3G-SDI (BNC) and an HDMI Type-A terminal, which can be used for simultaneous output. Moreover, Genlock IN (BNC) and Timecode IN/OUT (BNC) functions which enable multi-angle synchronised video recording are available to build a scalable system with external monitors, rigs and gimbals supplied from other manufacturers. When connected to LAN, Power over Ethernet+ (PoE+) makes it easy to install both physically and electrically.

Control over maximum 12 sets of LUMIX BS1H cameras*12 is available using Panasonic PC software LUMIX Tether for Multicam*1. The LUMIX BS1H camera is also equipped with a double SD Card slot for backup recording or relay recording.
