Newsshooter at Photokina 2016: Panasonic unveils stripped-down GH4 4K drone camera prototype from Dan Chung on Vimeo.

Newsshooter reports: “At the Photokina show, Panasonic had a 4K drone camera tucked away in the corner that’s got the internals from the GH4, but in a much smaller package. It can be controlled via an iPad wireless or with a USB cable. They currently don’t have any sort of release date, but if the demand is there, they could have it out in the world within a year.

And here is a picture of the camera via Focus Numerique:

330-toshiyuki-terada-olympus-om-d-e-m1-ii_1474639562

ePhotozine published the interview with Olympus Imaging Global Marketing Manager Toshiyuki Terada. Here are a couple of notes:

Dynamic range:On Dynamic range, we have compared the dynamic range to the competition, and the E-M1 Mark II at ISO200 gives 4.2 steps, which is better than the E-M1, (3.8steps), and APS-C cameras such as the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (3.5 steps), and Fujifilm X-T1 (3.5steps).

New 20MP sensor:The 20mp Live MOS sensor, different to the PEN-F, with Phase Detection focus on chip. There’s a new processing engine, the TruePic VIII – giving higher image quality, there is a 1 stop noise performance improvement over the E-M1.

About Full Frame users:We find a lot of people buy into the OM-D system and start trying it, and end up leaving the Full-Frame system at home.

E-M1II price:Slightly more than the E-M1, depending on location, and global economics, for example, Brexit.

Damn you british people are going to cost us a lot :)

In a new interview with Photographyblog Setsuya Kataoka from Olympus gave some more clues about the handheld high resolution mode:

At the moment you still need to use a tripod. It’s very much a future possibility but not yet. It might work with some moving subjects, such a leaves in the breeze, but it needs testing out in a variety of different situations by end users.
