Photographyblog interviewed Barnaby Sykes and Dai Mukai from Panasonic. Here are some key info:
– Whether we’re looking at volume or value, CSC shows very strong growth.
– (in UK) We actually had more orders than we forecast for the GH4 and ran out. We got some more in from Japan and ran out again. We’ve just put another order in.
– The GM5 is not called GM2 because it’s a major step up from the GM5 and will not replace the Gm1 (has EVF, improvement in AF speed and also burst shooting).
– LX100 also doesn’t replace the LX7
– Cameras with built-in Viewfinders are a really hot trend on the market
– premium compact camera (fixed lens) market is growing
Sounds like Panasonic is finally on the right path!
