(FT5) Panasonic GH5 will have same GX80 sensor (but better performance)

MFT-sony

The current Sony FT sensors listed at Sony.net.

A trusted soruce sent me this:

“I was told that the sensor in the GH5 will be fitted with the sensor out of the GX80, but with the ability to make the most of its output because of better processing and cooling.”

This means the GH5 will use the current 16 megapixel Sony made MFT sensor.

(FT4) More reports about delay on Olympus and Panasonic camera launch

I keep receiving multiple feedback from different sources saying that the Kumamoto earthquake disaster had a much greater negative impact than officially stated by the companies. As you know I recently leaked images and info about the E-PL8 and 30mm macro lens. Both should have been already announced by Olympus. But the current situation is constantly changing as Olympus and Panasonic are still trying to assess the situation.

Two sources told me that it’s highly likely that there will be some major delays and some of the camera expected to ship in 2016 will ship in early 2017 only. The situation affects almost all companies, it’s not only Panasonic-Olympus issue.

So whatever you are hoping to get at Phootkina this year, GH5, E-PL8 or E-M1II. The chances are high the camera will not be available immediately after the announcement!

 

Tony Northup predicts MFT will be one of the few mirrorless system to survive the coming years

Tony Northrup analyzed the current status of the photography world and made some predictions about the future. And he believes the Micro Four Thirds system will be one of the few to survive the coming years. While systems like the Nikon 1 and Canon EOS-M are “dead systems” (so he says).

Watch the video above to hear his opinions (Mirrorless system talk starts at 21.30min).

(FT5) New leaked image of the upcoming Olympus E-PL8
