(FT3) No GH1 successor until Photokina in September?

I am receiving more and more rumors confirming the Panasonic GH1 successor will not appear soon. Most of my sources do say a GH2 announcement is very likely planned for Photokina in September.

I know that’s bad news but I suspect the new Panasonic G1 successor will come with new video recording capabilities.

Don’t worry to much I also have some small good news for you!

The Panasonic TM700

Panasonic has ignored the CES stage as to now leave a month later, a fat cat out of the bag: The new consumer-top models with three image sensors (HDC-SD707, HDC-HS700 and HDC-TM700) will offer a true 1080p50 recording mode.
And what’s really interesting is the data rate of 28 Mbit! But how does this fit 1080p50 in the AVCHD standard? The AVCHD standard data rate is 17 or 24 Mbit. We didn’t get the answer.

Anyway a future Panasonic GH2 camera with 1080p60/50 and 28 Mbit data rate would be definitely an amazing camera which will probably be a worthy (if not more) competitor of the new Canon Rebel T2i video capabilities!

(FT5) UPDATED! Panasonic teaser for a new MFT cameras and the LX3(or TZ ?) successor!

The teaser clearly shows a new MFT camera and a new compact camera!
Panasonic, a leading imaging brand, is pleased to announce that for the very first time it will attend this years Focus on Imaging show held at the NEC Birmingham from 7th-10th March.
Panasonic UK

We already told you two new cameras will come. Probably the successor and a TZ or LX compact camera.

UPDATE: This are the G1 and TZ7 silhuettes?
UPDATE2: Drew S. noticed something really interesting: “The silhouette of the new Panasonic compact camera shows the mode control dial to the left of the shutter button as you face the camera. The dial on the newly announced TZ (zs7/tz10) is to the right of the shutter button. So it appears that this is not from the TZ series.

The G1 and TZ7 silhouettes

Just a reminder: The G1 has been officially discontinued in Japan and the Panasonic LX3 price is continually dropping (now $371.70 at amazon)
