(FT4) No more “classic” Four Thirds products from Panasonic?

Panasonic DMC LC1

Many of our sources are telling us that Panasonic has no plan to develop new Four Thirds cameras or lenses. They will focus their resources on new MicroFourThirds products. One more thing: Panasonic is working hard to improve the video capabilities of their next cameras (24MB/s compression and 1080 60/50p recording).

It will be interesting to see how Olympus will balance their resources between new Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds products. Akira Watanabe CEO from Olympus pre-announced two new MFT lenses and a second MFT camera but gave no indications about new FourThirds products.

Surprised about Panasonic’s move? We are not!

P.S.: Remember that this is a rumor and not an official Panasonic news!
