Panasonic has thrown it’s hat into the full-frame mirrorless camera ring with the much-anticipated release of the LUMIX S1 and S1R cameras. While the S1 and S1R may be physically identical, sharing a DSLR-style body, their capabilities are quite different. The S1’s 24MP CMOS sensor is spec’d to appeal to the videographer while the S1R’s 47MP CMOS sensor is clearly aimed at the photographer. While both can capture stills and 4K video, each one has its strong suit.
The Nauticam NA-S1R Housing
With the ability to house both the Panasonic LUMIX S1 and S1R cameras, the Nauticam NA-S1R housing gives the underwater image maker tremendous versatility. Nauticam’s drive for innovation and focus on real-world usability are clearly reflected in the features that are built into the NA-S1R.
While the two cameras may have different strengths, the NA-S1R is designed and built to give both video and still shooters dedicated access to all the controls and features exactly where they need them.
The NA-S1R has a double thumb lever on the rear left side of the housing that accesses DISP and Playback while a double thumb lever on the left front activates the customizable Fn1 and Fn2 buttons. A rear double thumb lever on the right side is for AF-On and REC.
A lever on the right rear of the NA-S1R allows for focus mode switching between C/S/MF and a multi-directional pad gives the ability to navigate the menu or move the focus point.
