(FT3) new Panasonic MicroFourThirds camera to be launched on February 2010


We received two new mails from new sources. Both messages do say that Panasonic will launch a new MicroFourThirds camera in February. It is very likely that the is going to be “upgraded”. Also a new generation of Panasonic sensors should be used for the camera.

(FT2) It is rumored that the camera will be the “GH5″ and use a new 12 Megapixel sensor. 24Mbit/s video compression should also be one of the upgraded features.

No specific details are available yet.

(FT4) What we already know is that on February Panasonic will launch new lenses!

Tamron is coming up with something new! Let’s speculate…they will release a MicroFourThirds lens? :)

Our friends from just discovered this nice countdown at Are they making a countdown for a new Canon-Nikon-Sony-Pentax lens? This would be boring normal. Let’s hope that this time they are going to make something for us! MicroFourThirds lenses? :)

It is not a rumor, just my personal wish! Come on Tamron! I know you can make my 25mm f/1.4 lens ;)

UPDATED -> MicroFourThirds competition rumors summary!

I didn’t expect such interesting times! There is no day that I do not receive any rumor about Ricoh-Sony-Samsung. They all talk about mirrorless camera coming in the next days and weeks! I am going to make you a summary:

Ricoh should announce the new compact interchangeable camera system tomorrow. The camera will be very similar to the actual GX200. It uses a “slide-in” mechanism to attach lenses. Our source told us that “it will not have a proprietary bayonet mount, and to say that it will have an APS-C sensor is, well, not the whole truth…Ricohs camera system will start with two “lenses”, one prime, one zoom. The prime has 33mm real focal length, the zoom 5,1-15,3mm.“. It will have an electronic viewfinder accessory shoe for optional. It will not use the Epson EVF! One more source told us we should not expect a real MicroFourThirds competitor (don’t expect to have the image quality and flexibility of the MicroFourThirds System).

That rumor came like a bomb for all of us! SonyAlphaRumors says that Sony wants to launch a Panasonic GH1 competitor on November 18! It will record FullHD! Two of our sources heard about that camera but can’t tell us more about the specs :(

Samsung maybe will drop the ultimate bomb! K-rumors just published the last-minute rumors that Samsung will not only announce the NX System (mirrorless camera with APS-C sensor) but also the new GX fullframe mirrorless System. The new NX camera should be announced on December 10. All the specs about NX and GX System can be found here:
NX specs
GX specs

Let’s see what happens tomorrow with Ricoh!

UPDATE: Photorumors says that also Canon is planning a MicroFourThirds competitor in form of a fixed lens camera

2.5x crop factor sensor (~13.8×10.4mm).
5x zoom (26-130mm)
f2.8-4 IS L lens
The form factor is similar to the Pro1
Articulated Screen
800×600 EVF.
CMOS made by Canon
High FPS
1080p video like that of the SX1-IS.

It should look like the Canon PowerShot Pro 1
