Sorry if we have the courage to post something about our biggest enemy. But the Canon 500d rumors are quite interesting and will influence sell volumes and prices of the new Panasonic GH1.
Canon has sent invitations for a new product which will be presented on March 25th.

So first we show you the features of the new camera compared to the Panasonic GH1!

Pansonic GH1 Canon 500d
12 MPX 15MPX
3.0″ TFT LCD monitor 460,000 dots 3.0″ VGA screen 920,000 dots (NO swifel)
23-Area-Focusing/1 Area Focusing (inc. Face Detection) 9 Point AF (inc. Face Detection for AF)
video mode (variable framerate) video mode (variable framerate)

That’s just a simple first comparison. I don’t believe Canon will bring big surprises like for example a 3.0 OLED screen or 1080 60/50p mode.

What’s more interesting for us is the impact that the Canon 500d could have on the price of the Panasonic GH1. Actually the official price is 1.500 Dollars for a GH1 with kit lens. I believe Canon can keep the price quite low, we say 600$ for body only. From a price point of view this is a real challenger for the Panasonic GH1 !!!
