DxOMark has tested the sensor of Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R (B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon)’s image sensor. According to DxOMark, this sensor is one of the best full frame image sensor. The DxOMark score is 100, same as Nikon D850 and Sony a7R III.
Conclusions from DxOMark:
Panasonic has chosen a new high-resolution 47.3MP CMOS sensor for the Lumix DC-S1R—one that challenges the class-leading sensors in the Sony A7R III and the Nikon Z 7. Intriguingly, it combines attributes of both of its rivals (with some nuances) and achieves near-identical performance results overall.
With its combination of high pixel count, low noise, and exceptional color sensitivity, the Lumix DC-S1R is likely to appeal to the most demanding studio photographers. And when conditions require it, its excellent dynamic range means the S1R should be a viable candidate for interior, wedding, and landscape photographers. Finally, its competitive price will also strongly appeal to keen amateurs who are looking for a solid all-rounder.
