Away FHD (S1 |LINK|
If there's one takeaway from the series premiere of The Crown, it's that this show has spared no expense on the details. There is a meticulousness present in every scene as the script and director Stephen Daldry focus on the small, seemingly unimportant details of the royals' lives: attendants telling drivers where to take the family; the preparation of the king's breakfast; the renovations to Philip and Elizabeth's home. The show's stately pace is made more amenable by the attention to detail, which creates a very engrossing experience.

These opening few scenes are filled with foreshadowing. King George VI's time in the bathroom and the difficulty he has speaking while naming Philip Duke of Edinburgh let us know he's not long for this world. And, this exchange between Philip and Elizabeth hints at the struggle their marriage will face once she ascends to the throne. Philip is being facetious about signing his life away here, but little does he know that's likely the case. Part of him probably does feel that way, however, since most of his family isn't allowed to attend the wedding because some of them had ties to Germany.
Macro performance is excellent, allowing you to focus as close as 1cm away from the subject when the lens is set to wide-angle. Commendably barrel distortion is well controlled even at the 24mm focal length. The built-in flash worked well indoors, with no red-eye and adequate overall exposure, although there is noticeable vignetting at 24mm. The anti-shake system works very well when hand-holding the camera in low-light conditions or when using the telephoto end of the zoom range. The maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds allows the cameras to capture enough light for most after-dark situations.
But alas, nothing is perfect. The S1 has a strange limitation when shooting 150 or 180 fps. You're entirely limited to auto exposure. There's no adjusting aperture, or ISO, or shutter. Also the image stabilization and autofocus go away, but we can live with that.
But probably the biggest con right now is the autofocus system. It's great, maybe even better than the GH5/GH5S, but there are moments where it just doesn't work. You are framing your subject and yet the S1 continues to focus on the background. It only takes a few failed autofocus moments to start chipping away at your confidence in a camera.
Side note: you could probably open the door a tiny bit and grab the chain hanging on the outside. Also, you could probably stop shining your torch everywhere, Stiles, because it acts as a freaking beacon and gives away your location.
