London timelapse with Lumix S1

The Panasonic Lumix S1 is a very exciting new camera, especially for timelapse photographers. Read on to find out why.

Lumix S1 timelapse

The Panasonic Lumix S1 is a new full frame mirrorless camera. Panasonic sent me the S1 to play with and create some youtube content.

I walked around London for a few days with the following video as the result.

How I shot this timelapse with the Lumix S1

I used the Lumix S1 with the 24-105 f4 lens, as well as a circular polariser and a small tabletop tripod.

The timelapses were all shot using the Lumix S1 built in timelapse mode.

This timelapse mode allows you to set your interval, shot count (up to 9999 shots!), exposure mode (fixed or exposure leveling) and more.

My upcoming review will go into detail about how this mode works and what you can do with it.

I can already reveal that this camera is the best timelapse camera I've used so far. I might even get rid of one of my Canon's and replace it with this one.

How I edit Lumix S1 timelapse footage

After shooting a series of RAW photos with the S1 timelapse mode I offload the memory card contents on to an external hard drive.

The contents of this hard drive get imported into Adobe Lightroom.

I then colour grade the photos and save the metadata.

From there on the photos get imported into Adobe After Effects.

Every photo sequence gets imported as an image sequence and a composition is made for each one.

These compositions are then exported as full resolution ProRes 422 video files.
