Panasonic announced the release of the new full-frame box-style LUMIX Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera, the DC-BS1H, which the company says “combines the cinema-quality video performance of the LUMIX S1H with an easy-to-deploy box-style profile.” The LUMIX BS1H accommodates a 24-megapixel full-frame sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and includes features such as 6K full-area high-resolution recording, impressive bokeh, excellent low-light performance, wide dynamic range of 14+ stops, V-Log, and more.

The LUMIX BS1H will be available in November for $3,499.99.

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 HEVC video recording when using the image area equivalent to Super 35mm. The 4:2:2 10-bit 4K30p 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.

The camera can also be used for high-resolution streaming. The BS1H provides an IP streaming function enabling distant, high-quality image transmission to online with PC connection over wired LAN. The LUMIX BS1H can stream 4K 60p (50p) video in H.265.
