Panasonic LUMIX S1H (2 Years Later) : Still Relevant In 2022?

After spending some time getting to know the Panasonic GH6 not long after its release, realising how good LUMIX cameras were for shooting video got me questioning an awful lot as to why I was never intrigued by the brand, despite the many kudos it's received amongst the videographer community ever since the GH5 made some leaps amongst competitors being able to record in anamorphic modes, 5 stops in-body stabilisation, and a relatively affordable price when it first came out.

Although the Panasonic LUMIX S1H might just be a follow up to its predecessor the LUMIX S1, but with internal specs of a 24.2MP full-frame sensor ​​leveraging on a dual-base ISO setting to minimise noise and maximise image quality from low to high sensitivity, recording modes of C4K/4K 60p/50p, 6K/24p 4:2:0 10-bit in 3:2 and 5.9K 30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit in 16:9, Anamorphic 4K and not to mention RAW video outputs for external recording — its hard to distinguish what else they could improve upon when it comes to image outputs.
