Mark the announcement days…


1) The Panasonic Singapore countdown ends on January 31. We still don’t know if they only want to promote their new website or if they also will unveil the new products. Let’s see.

2) Olympus will launch new cameras on February 2. New compact cameras are expected. Will they also announce the new FourThirds camera?

Panasonic Singapore Countdown is back…

Panasonic Singapore launched the countdown few days ago. Then the website went offline and now it is online again!

Anyway we don’t know if they will announce the new cameras on January 31! But seeing Olympus having a press conference on February 2nd and Nikon on february 3rd…it seems posisble that this could be the right day.

(FT3) Photorumors has more details about the LX3 successor.

The rumor is from photorumors. We don’t know his source that’s why we post it with a “FT3” value (which means “could be”).

He says “my sources from Asia can only confirm that at least one more, high end, compact camera will be announced with new Lumix G model, but at that point it is not confirmed that it will be the LX4:

Rumored Specs:

* Full manual control
* New and improved image stabilization system
* No RAW mode (? – LX3 did have RAW mode, another reason why this may not be a LX3 replacement). Panasonic may keep the RAW mode only for their GF line.
* 720p HD video
* Stereo microphones
* New digital zoom function: Panasonic will unveil also a new technology that will be related to digital zoom and will make it much more useful

(FT5) Panasonic ready to launch the LX3 successor and to update the Panasonic G series.

Reminder: This is a rumor site. We are not affiliated with Olympus or Panasonic. If you want to read REAL and 100% certain news visit their official website!

The Rumor:
According to our sources Panasonic will soon launch the new Panasonic LX3 successor. Not only that, also the Panasonic G series will be updated. Expect an official announcement right in time for the upcoming PMA event (February 21-23)
We do not have any other certain details. We will publish more infos as soon as we receive some reliable infos from our sources. We also don’t know now if the Panasonic G1 or also the Panasonic GH1 will be updated (or both?).

What do we mean with “FT5” ?
The rumor has been qualified as a “FT5” rumor. This means that it comes from our best sources (There is a 90% chance to see the rumor come true). As you know we are very reliable with our “FT5” rumors and only few times we were completely wrong (And again sorry for that, but we learned from our mistakes!).
