Panasonic CES live streaming on January 5.


You can follow the Panasonic CES press conference live on that page: I am yet not sure Panasonic will announce new MFT cameras at CES. CP+ show is the more “ideal” event for that. But there may be new compact cameras and video cameras they will show at CES. Panasonic itself writes about CES:

In addition to 4K camcorders and twin camera compatible camcorders, visitors will also be able to try LUMIX cameras equipped with the “4K Photo” function, which enables users to capture one-of-a-kind, memorable still photos from 4K videos, as well as a wide range of semi-professional 4K products.

Also Fuji says organic sensor developed with Panasonic will not come in any camera soon.

Fuji confirmed that there is still a long time to go before organic sensors will find their way in mass production cameras (More info at MirrorlessRumors). As you know that kind of sensor is developed in conjunction with Panasonic. I guess it will take at least 2-3 years before we geta MFT camera with such sensor. But maybe in the meantime other new tech will surface that will make that kind of organic sensor useless anyway…

On paper the new Organic sensor has the following advantages over conventional sensors:
1) it has only 1/6 of the thickness of the current sensors
2) Increased Dynamic range of 88dB
3) 1,2 ISO stops more sensitive
4) range of incident angles of 60 degrees, efficiently utilizing light entering at an angle for faithful color reproduction with no color mixing. It also gives greater flexibility in lens designs, facilitating the reduction of overall camera size.
