(FT 2) first possible human specifications list rumor for the Olympus micro four thirds camera

Received an email from a completely unknown source. The specifications sounds credible but I believe they are not right. Time will prove it:

Olympus Pn100

– 12 Megapixel

– 2,7 swifel LCD

– No EVF

– 720 24fps

– Art-filter

– Built-in flash

– external viewfinder avaiable

– sold with 14-45 kit lens

UPDATE:
– 100-3200 ISO
– AVCHD lite video compression

UPDATE 2:

UPDATE:
One of our BIG sources told us this specs are close to the real one. Only the name is completely wrong apart the “P” !!!!!!!!!!!
He will share the specifications soon when they will be definitive…

-two sources told us the LCD will be 3.0 big !!!
-We are not certain if it will be swifel!

Sorry for the confusion but right after we published the rumor from before our more affidable sources wrote us the name camera will be different named.

(FT 2) Panasonic Lumix LX5 for third quarter 2010 ?

A fantasy rendered image from a possible LX5 with external EVF

A fantasy rendered image from a possible LX5 with external EVF

[ad#im_text_link_float]

We had a small talk with a japanese source who claims to work for Panasonic. We are going to see if he will become one of our trusted sources. So for now this is just a (FT 2) rumor

1) “Yes, Panasonic is working o a compact m4/3 camera but this camera is not a LX3 competitor“. The Lx3 will always be smaller and cheaper than a compact micro four thirds camera from Panasonic. So a Lx3 successor will definitely come.

2) The name could be “LX5”. The “4” number is unlucky to a japanese.

3) Sensor: Panasonic is trying to get new ways with the sensor like Fuji is doing. They already have a functionally HDR-Sensor, a Sensor who can capture a High dynamic range. If this is going to be implemeted in the LX3 successor is undefined but possible. Why should Pansonic do this? “Because improvement on megapixel basis are not so simple, more than 10 Megapixel on a small sensor are difficoult to manage in terms of image quality” .To know more about possible new Panasonic sensor read here: http://43rumors.com/missing-panasonicsensor/

3) People is happy with the zoom range and lens quality. There will be only small improvement here.

4) 2010 will definitely be the year of OLED screens. So I can safely say there is 90% of chance to see OLED screen on the LX5.

5) Panasonic is hardly working to improve the AVCHD lite quality. This will probably find his use inside the LX5

6) GPS tagging, Wifi connection….no plans yet.

7) And what about an auto lens cover? “Probably they will make it”. Oh yes WE HOPE SO!!!
