According to one of our sources and the moderator from the french Chassimages forum the upcoming Panasonic GH2 will feature a high-resolution 1.56 milion dots EVF (electronic viewfinder). Very likely it will use the Epson Ultimicron (Click here to read the specs).

The GH2 will be sold with the 14-140mm lens or if you preferr you can buy it with the much cheaper 14-42mm kit lens! I don’t know yet if you can have it body only.

Reminder: The GH2 should be announced in few hours (tomorrow morning between 7-9am London time)

UPDATE: Kenmorecamera says the lens costs $599!

Interesting the Panasonic 3D lens has a fixed f/12 aperture!

MirrrorlressRumors from others: Nikon Q, Leica EVIL, Samsung Lens roadmap….


There are many new rumors from the competititon and I made you a quick recap!

1) Is the Nikon Mirrorless “Q” camera ready to be unveiled? (Nikonrumors). 43rumors thoughts: I believe they will show some mirrorless camera prototypes.

2) Does Leica have „one more thing“ for photokina? (Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: I don’t believe Leica will bring an EVIL camera.

3) Mirrorless will outsell DSLRs by 2012/2013 says Samsung (Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: They are just shouting :)

4) New Samsung lens roadmap (Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: Nice lenses!

5) Mr. Hamada from Hoya-Pentax says about mirrorless: “we would like to release products with an individuality that shines through” (via Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: Let’s wait Photokina!

(FT5) First Panasonic GH2 picture

Finally we have the first image of the Panasonic GH2! The deisgn is closer to the current Panasonic G2 than the older Panasonic GH1.

The GH2 has following specs:
– 18 Megapixels multiscale sensor (16 effective Megapixels)
– 100-12.800 ISO (But I dont know how it takes the 12.800 ISO pictures)
– 1080i60 24Mbit/s AVCHD video recording
– The GH2 has one LSI with three cores (instead of current two cores of the GH1)
– Improved AF speed (0.099 second with the 14-140mm kit-lens)
– High-speed burst shooting of 5 fps with 16 MP
– Super high-speed burst shooting of 40 fps (lower resolution)
– Touch screen LCD
– announced 21 September at photokina
(FT3)Two new sources just told us the camera has real 1080p60 output “masked” as 1080i60. This because AVCHD specification does not include 1080p60. You have to set it to 60p (manually) in Final Cut (or other editing software). This rumor has to be confirmed by our sources so take it with a grain of salt!
