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.

Jean:A “next door” story on an unconventional specie. As a professional photographer, I recently worked on an amazing universe, the Sphynx. These hairless cats are an official specie which appeared in the 60’s. Just very few official breeders around the world. That work, made for magazines, was entirely shot with two GH3, a Pana 20mm and Olympus 12mm & 45mm. Link is:

Robert:I’m not sure if this is something you’d show but I shot this video on a local artist with a bmpcc I’m sensor size agnostic but love using m43 for the tiny lenses.
