(FT4) Panasonic will display a smarthphone-photocamera hybrid device at Photokina.

Image of one of the current Panaosnic smartphones (not form the yet rumored hybrid cam).

This is no a Micro Four Thirds news but as you know the smartphone market is eating up the compact camera segment and Panasonic apparently wants to merge the two kind of devices into one. I have heard that Panasonic will “display” a sort of high end smartphone-photo hybrid camera. I have no specs about the sensor and lens used ut the goal of that device is to deliver very high image quality on smartphones. It should be something like the Samsung Galaxy Camera (here on eBay) which has a Cmos 1/2.3″ sensor size and 21x optical zoom. I see success only if Panasonic manages to use a larger sensor inside it (1 inch?). I know I am dreaming :)

(FT5) Panasonic LX100 costs 845€. It’s going to be the best fixed lens compact ever made!

LX100 design is very close to the glorious Panasonic LC1 (here on eBay)

While the comments about the soon to be announced GM5 are not that enthusiastic our sources share plenty of excitement about the new LX100! It’s going to become the best compact and fixed lens camera on market. And easily beats the RX100M3 because of the larger 16Mp Four Thirds multiaspect sensor, the superior lens (24-75mm f/1.7-2.8) and the superior video quality (4K). But all that isn’t going to be cheap. The camera will cost 845 Euro according to one of our sources. That’s 50 Euro more than the current RX100M3 price (here one Bay). The LX100 is also a tiny bit larger than the RX100 but still fits in your pocket. I think this could be the perfect 24 hours camera. You can carry it easily with you and has amazing useful specs. What more camera do you need?

 LX100 specs:
- Sensor: 16MP Multi aspect Four Thirds(!). Real resolution is a bit lower.
– 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 lens
– Built-in EVF: 2,76 milion dots, 1.39x / 0.7x magnification
– ISO 200-25600. Can be extended down to 100!
– 4K recording (with time limitation to avoid heating issue)
– exact camera size: 4.52″ x 2.6″ x 2.4″
– hot shoe

Would you consider buying a Panasonic LX100?
