A new Panasonic US patent filed on June 4 discloses that Micro Four Thirds camera with “cube” form just like the recently introduced Olympus Open Platform camera prototype (article and images here). But the Panasonic patent is more detailed about the camera details than the Olympus prototype. The Panasonic version uses a color separation prism and three sensor each sensible to different colors (Red-Green-Blue).
Such a camera may be suited for professional video recording. But if that patented idea will ever make it into a real mass product is yet unclear.
