(FT5) Confirmed: Panasonic FZ1000 1 inch sensor is from Sony.

The 1 inch sensor of the FZ1000.

One of my very best sources (Thanks You!) confirmed the 1 inch sensor used by the new Panasonic FZ1000 is from Sony. It’s actually the same RX100M3 sensor but unlike Sony Panasonic managed to solve the heating issue to make it record 4K.

The source told me people shouldn’t get confused because Panasonic calls it “MOS”. It’s just a marketing thing. It is the Sony BSI CMOS sensor :)

P.S.: Panasonic FZ-1000 preorders at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here).

(FT5) Confirmed by trusted sources: New fixed lens and FT sensor compact coming!

LX vs FT sensor size comparison. Image courtesy: Cameraimagesensor.

Last week an Asian source from SLRclub Korea (found via Dicahub) said Panasonic has a large sensor camera coming soon. I worked on that rumors and two highly trusted sources confirmed that Panasonic will launch a fixed lens compact camera with built-in EVF and a Four Thirds sized sensor. One of the sources also said this is not a “LX” camera.

The camera will be announced before Photokina sometimes in late August or very early days of September!

Panasonic GX7 gets officially discontinued!

The Australian store Discountcameras marked the Panasonic GX7 as “officially” discontinued. I asked one of my trusted sources and he confirmed that Panasonic is “fading” out the GX7. There is no word or rumor about a possible successor yet.

In US the Panasonic GX7 with kit lens got a $200 off at Amazon US (Click here). Sells now for $899 only.

(FT5) Rumor correction and confirmation: Next Panasonic announcement in late August and not in mid July!

Two trusted sources told me that the new high-end compacts will be announced one month later than previously rumored. Not on July 16 but sometimes in late August! But they also confirmed the large sensor fixed lens camera is coming for sure!

And one more thing: Some hot rumors are about to come soon ;)

(FT4) Mitakon considering to make a 50mm f/0.95 Speedmaster lens.

After launching the Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 for E-mount (here on eBay) Mitakon is seriously considering to make proper Micro Four Thirds version of it.

Don’t know how much sense it makes to launch such a lens. We already have superb (and also cheap) 50mm f/0.95 lenses…

For the record. These are the five f/o.95 MFT lenses we have now:
Nokton 25mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 (not in Stock yet, save this search for notification).
SLRmagic 50mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
SLRmagic 25mm f/0.95 (not in Stock yet, save this search for notification).
