IMPORTANT: Days ago a DVXforum user spotted and photographed the Panasonic GH2 on the beach. He contacted me and asked me to remove the leaked images I posted on 43rumors. I had to fulfil his request. Anyway, that’s one more proof that this was the real GH2! For those of you that didn’t see the camera don’t worry. Imagine the Panasonic G2 with flash card door on the same place of the Panasonic GH1…that’s it!
I already told you the GH2 uses a new 18 megapixels multi-aspect sensor (16 effective Megapixels).
Today 43rumors learned that the GH2 will record 1080/60i (UPDATE: this is the container! we will give you more details about the real output as soon as we can but it could be 60p!!! This because the AVCHD specification doesn’t include 1080/60p). The camera can also record at a higher bitrate 24Mbit/s AVCHD. I was a little bit worried because of the Megapixels number increase but according to our sources Panasonic managed to improve the High-ISO performance by 1 stop (if true that would be an awesome news!).
Price of the camera $1499 (The current Panasonic GH1 is in Stock for $1149).
If you have more news about the GH2 feel free to contact me using the right sidebar. It doesn’t store your IP-address and neither Name or Email are required. Every little help…helps! Thanks!
