Vitaly: GH3 rumor roundup and firmware suggestions…

A fake GH3 rendering.

Vitaly Kiselev, the Panasonic camera hacker posted a roundup of GH3 rumors floting around the web. And he added his firmware suggestions too. Here is the list via Personal-View:

GH3 Preliminary specs (really rumors and speculations, nothing official :-0 ):

  • Wheather sealed, metal body
  • Shutter button located similarly to G5, same power zoom rocker
  • 920k or better capacitive touch screen
  • Improved EVF (like full 1080p)
  • 1080p50/1080p60 at 28mp
  • 1080p120/1080p100 special modes (limited time usage), 720p120/720p100 unlimited
  • WiFi direct with Android and iPhone applications with remote video capture
  • 1/3.5″ mic input and headphone output
  • Supplied with new wheather sealed kit
  • And optional battery grip, of course.

Mine suggestions:

  • Improve video encoder making it independent from bunch of fixed settings, improve it’s performance
  • Make special dedicated expert screen for video settings, allowing to set any combination of encoder parameters, without any hacks
  • Make proper electronic follow focus with speed selection, ability to set predefined positions, etc, driven from mobile phone or using rocker


I would be so happy with these specs!!!

Contact form fixed. Waiting to get more GH3-PEN-Lens and “more”(?) rumors!

If you know 43rumors you know that sometimes server does crash and after that I spend a lot of time on fixing things. I am working on a new long term solution by redesigning the website and updating the server power. But this is costly and I can’t do this right now (I am saving my money for it).

For sources:
Anyway, what matters is that my sources can read this post to know that the anonymous contact form on the right sidebar is working again. You know it doesn’t store any info like IP address and you don’t have to share me your real name (just pickup a fake one). You can also create a fake gmail account and send me messages at

For sources and readers:
I am working on new rumors about the GH3, E-PM2, EPL5 cameras plus the new lenses (like the telephoto lens from Panasonic). It’s only one month to go until the announcement and new rumors and even leaks could arrive any time soon. It’s going to be a busy time!

Canon mirrorless competitor now official. Costs a lot more than GF5 and E-PM1.

The new Canon has been now announced and you can follow all live updates at (Click here). For us what matters is that the entry level camera is actually much more expensive than the Panasonic GF5, the Olympus E-PM1 or even than the Panasonic GX1. It’s more in the price league of an Olympus E-P3.

Anyway, watch out the test on MirrorlessRumors to check if the camera price and features balanace is correct and if Olympus/Panasonic should be worry!…I don’t think so…
