Few days ago we told you that Panasonic would launch the new 3D camcorder…and here it is: https://panasonic.ca/english/broadcast/broadcast/3d/3dcamera/3d_en.html. I know that this news doesn’t match with our usual MicroFourThirds stuff but I guess that soon we will also see 3D photocameras from Panasonic!
Finally we found the specs and images of the new Panasonic LX5 (yeah!) We still don’t know anything about the improvements on the sensor and imaging processor. I like the extended zoom range, the new AVCHD lite recording and the new grip. Now my question to you:
P.S.: A special thanks goes to Nick that found the leak (applause!!!)
UPDATE: You can now preorder the Panasonic LX5 on Amazon
P.S.: The Panasonic G2 has also been leaked on the panasonic website in February
What we know for certain is that the LX5 will be announced on July 21!
Main differences between the LX5 and the older LX3:
– The LX5 has 3.8x zoom 24-90mm (the LX3 has 2.5x and ends with 60mm)
– LX5 wit 80 to 12800 ISO (the LX3 80 to 3200)
– It records in HD 60p (sensor output is 30p) AVCHDlite
– Veyr hot-> There will be also optional electronic and optical viewfinder!
