Share

Let’s start with the most unlikely but also more fascinating rumor: Canon and Samsung are planning to enter the medium format market. Time to dream a digital mirrorless Mamiya 7? (Mirrorlessrumors / Canonrumors)

Pentax will release a mirrorless camera at Photokina (Mirrorlessrumors).

Nikon new mirrorless camera patent but no camera at Photokina? (Mirrorlessrumors / Nikonrumors).

(FT3) Is it the GF2/GH2 or GF3/GH3?

We know that specs and features is what we are looking for but it would be also “nice” to know the real name of the next Panasonic cameras! A new source contacted us to say that Panasonics new GF camera will be called GF3 and not GF2!

That sounds very likely because few months ago Imaging Resource had a chance to talk with Yoshiyuki Inoue (senior camera planner from Panasonic Corporation). Adn he said that the GH3 or a GF3 may having different AF in movies…

So may we should call them GF3 and GH3!

Reminder: There is a superdeal ongoing at Amazon -> Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens for $649.99 (click here to buy the camera now!) and BHphoto (same price)

(FT5) Another exceptional µ4/3 lens from Panasonic is soon to be unveiled!

Few days ago we told you that at Photokina (September) Panasonic will finally release the 14mm f/2.5, 100-300mm and 1-2 new video lenses for the new MFT camcorder (The AG-AF100). Today two of our best sources told us that we should expect one more “exceptional” lens. A lens that was not one the Panasonic roadmap -> yes Panasonic cheated on us 😉
The sources didn’t reveal any details about the lens. But they said we don’t have to wait a long time to know it…

Just a reminder. Few weeks ago we received rumors from good sources saying that Panasonic was working on fast primes (faster than f/1.4). We don’t know if one of those fast primes could be announced now. There has been also a rumor saying that there could be a MicroFourThrids version of the current Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 FourThirds lens.

Let’s see…

(FT3) UPDATED: a new “tweaked” sensor for the MicroFourThirds camcorder?

According to 43rumors sources the AG-AF100 will use a “tweaked” sensor which works slightly different than the GH1 and GH2. Panasonic could use a “non RGB flow” that is optimized for the video codec. One of our sources also added an awesome detail: Panasonic is working on a loss less compression! He doesn’t know if that compression will be added to the camera but he knows they are working on it!

Bye the way, Panasonic officially said that the AG-AF100 will not use the GH1 sensor…(Source: DVXuser)

Reminder:
FT= FourThirds
FT1=probably fake rumor
FT2=rumor from unkown sources
FT3=50% chance it is correct
FT4=rumor from known sources
FT5=almost certainly correct!
