March announcements summary…

We posted so many rumors during the last weeks that it might be a good idea to make a clarifying summary of the possible March announcements:

1) Panasonic will announce compact camera(s), MicroFourThirds camera(s) and Lenses on early March. Very likely the first week of March.

2) Olympus could announce one or more new FourThirds cameras in March (late March?)

3) Noktor will unveil the new 50mm f/0.95 lens with MicroFourThirds mount on March 1.

4) Samyang will release new FourThirds lenses in March

(FT4) Correction -> Panasonic announcement early March.

UPDATE: We just recieved more informations from our sources. The announcement will be made early March and not next week. There have been a mistake with two sources! It happens rarely but it happens.

Panasonic seems to be ready to announce a LOT of stuff! Compact camera/s new MicroFourThirds camera and lenses.

(FT3) Probably no GH2 with 60p/50p but a G2 with video recording is going to be unveiled. There is also a fair chance to see the new LX3 successor with backlight sensor.

If you want and can help us send us your news/rumors at Thanks!

(FT5) UPDATED: New Olympus teaser….for a new website :(

Olympus Malaysia launched a new website with the following teaser:

But CNET Asia learned that this is not a teaser for a new product announcement:”We got back to Olympus Singapore which told CNET Asia that the microsite is just part of the company’s marketing scheme for the already-announced E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds camera. Also, no new dSLRs are expected on February 28.

(FT3) New dual exposure technique sensor for the GH2?

The website reported what Panasonic engineer T. Azuma’s said during the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco (which took place last week).

Basically Azuma says that Panasonic developed a sensor based on ‘dual exposure technique’ which improves the sensitivity by a factor of 4. This goal has been archived allowing green pixels to be read independently of the blue and red ones on the sensor. They are exposed four times longer than the red and blue pixels.
