This is how Panasonics imagines the future (4K Wearable Camera)

Just in case you missed it. The one camera you see on top has just been announced by Panasonic. They think devices like that are the present and future of wearable camera devices. And just like the GH4 it records 4K (obviously not with the same video quality).

Here is a video that shows you what you can do with that camera. Cool…but will it sell?

Financial rumors: Panasonic mirrorless camera sales increased.

A very trusted sources shared some positive insights on Panasonic mirrorless camera sales. While he obviously cannot share numbers he told me that Panasonic is finally seeing an increase in their mirrorless camera sales. We will see these positive trend within the next Panasonic financial report. Also important to know is that Panasonic expects the positive trend to continue further with the release of the GH4. So let’s wait and see.

The last months there were a lot of negative reports about the status of the mirrorless system camera market. But for unscientific reasons I strongly believe mirrorless system cameras are the future. And I am not the only one thinking so:

The mirrorless camera genre is the future. Large, bulky DSLRs are a dying breed. Will it happen overnight? I’m sure it won’t. But I know that I will be showcasing my DSLRs next to my other antique cameras sooner than later!

The two marketplace leaders (Canon and Nikon) are in the same boat here. They’d rather follow than lead when it comes to the inevitability of mirrorless. Why? I believe that the answer is fear. It’s clear to everyone in the industry that the future lies in mirrorless technology, but the two market leaders have DSLRs as their current bread and butter products. Their wisdom seems to be — if someone is going to eat our lunch, let’s let them at least do it slowly. Doing the brave move of eating it ourselves, while maintaining our dominant market share, is just is a bit too risky.
