(FT3) No GH1 successor until Photokina in September?

I am receiving more and more rumors confirming the Panasonic GH1 successor will not appear soon. Most of my sources do say a GH2 announcement is very likely planned for Photokina in September.

I know that’s bad news but I suspect the new Panasonic G1 successor will come with new video recording capabilities.

Don’t worry to much I also have some small good news for you!

The Panasonic TM700

Panasonic has ignored the CES stage as to now leave a month later, a fat cat out of the bag: The new consumer-top models with three image sensors (HDC-SD707, HDC-HS700 and HDC-TM700) will offer a true 1080p50 recording mode.
And what’s really interesting is the data rate of 28 Mbit! But how does this fit 1080p50 in the AVCHD standard? The AVCHD standard data rate is 17 or 24 Mbit. We didn’t get the answer.

Anyway a future Panasonic GH2 camera with 1080p60/50 and 28 Mbit data rate would be definitely an amazing camera which will probably be a worthy (if not more) competitor of the new Canon Rebel T2i video capabilities!

Aperture -> Need help from Olympus :)

Charles-Axel Pauwels wrote a new app for those wanting to have GF1-E-P1/2 RAW support on Aperture. This app is free!

He just sent me a new email and may Olympus can help us: “Do you have a E-PL1 RAW file sample on which I could do some testing?

Can someone of our readers send us a RAW file of the Olympus E-PL1? Maybe you guys from Olympus? Thanks!
