Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Panasonic S1, which was introduced in February 2019 is a Pro Mirrorless camera with a 24.0MP Full frame sensor whereas Canon 5D MIV, which was introduced in August 2016 is a Semi-Pro DSLR camera with a 30.0MP Full frame sensor.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Panasonic S1 is ranked #9
out of 38 Pro Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 92 whereas Canon 5D MIV is ranked #9
out of 90 Semi-Pro DSLR cameras with an overall score of 86.
Let's have a brief look at the main features of Panasonic S1 and Canon 5D MIV before getting into our more detailed comparison.
