(FT 5) Panasonic compact m4/3 will be their next camera



This is the now famous rendered image (remember it is not REAL). But we like it ;)

It was never going to be a big surprise, we knew it would be happening a long time ago . But now Panasonic confirmed that “rumor” to the New York Times.

Here’s the most interesting excerpt from the article: “Panasonic say that they’re working on new models that will pack all of this miraculous technology into even smaller Micro Four Thirds packages.”

You can read the full article here.

Do you know something about the camera? Please share all your information!

Here’s my spec WISHLIST (not a rumor!)

12 MPX

50-1600 ISO

built-in flash


black and white model

1080 60p/50p video

  • Of course Panasonic has to work fast on a compact micro 4/3 camera because they know Olympus is working on one which will be out in a few months. Its is a very smart move for them to confirm this in a major publication like NY Times because now when people see the Olympus version, Panasonic fans will know there is something coming too and might hold off on the purchase to see what Panasonic has to offer. I know i will certainly think twice until I have seen their offering…

    Why on earth would you want 12MP on a camera like that?

    I would be far happier with half that.
