Panasonic S1R vs Fujifilm GFX50R: Specs and Size Compared


Apotelyt used all the details from here and here to put the Panasonic S1R in their comparison system and it’s a very interesting match up for the Fujifilm GFX50R. I personally would still favor the Fujifilm GFX50R heavily especially considering how compact and light it actually is compared to the S1R, but the new Panasonic S1R is quite a technological achievement. You can follow it’s launch at 43addict if you’re interested. The official announcement is expected within the next 24 hours.

Arguments in favor of the Fujifilm GFX 50R:

  • Larger screen: Has a bigger rear LCD (3.2″ vs 3.0″) for image review and settings control.
  • More detailed LCD: Has a higher resolution rear screen (2360k vs 2100k dots).
  • Less heavy: Is lighter (by 123g or 14 percent) and hence easier to carry around.
  • Better studio light control: Has a PC Sync socket to connect to professional strobe lights.
  • More heavily discounted: Has been on the market for longer (launched in September 2018).

Advantages of the Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R:

  • High quality composites: Can combine several shots after pixel-shifting its sensor.
  • Better video: Provides higher definition movie capture (4K/60p vs 1080/30p).
  • More detailed viewfinder: Has higher resolution electronic viewfinder (5760k vs 3690k dots).
  • Easier setting verification: Features a control panel on top to check shooting parameters.
  • More flexible LCD: Has full-flex screen for odd-angle shots in portrait or landscape orientation.
  • Faster shutter: Has higher mechanical shutter speed (8000/sec vs 4000/sec) to freeze action.
  • Faster burst: Shoots at higher frequency (9 vs 3 flaps/sec) to capture the decisive moment.
  • Sharper images: Has stabilization technology built-in to reduce the impact of hand-shake.
  • More solid recording: Has a full-sized HDMI port for a sturdy connection to an external recorder.
  • More affordable: Was introduced into a lower priced category (56 percent cheaper at launch).
  • More modern: Was introduced somewhat (4 months) more recently.
