Few more details about the new Panasonic Varicam Mini

At the NAB show Panasonic teased the launch of a new compact cinema camera. Sadly it seems like it has EF mount and not MFT mount. Cinema5D writes:

I think we are very likely looking Panasonic’s answer to the FS5 and even the Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini Pro: a compact cinema camera that’s as much at home in a documentary environment as in indie productions. In other words, a beefed-up GH5 with a Super 35mm sensor and camcorder ergonomics, with the kind of data rate capabilities to affordable media that Panasonic has already promised, and which has the entry-level market already salivating.

The Panasonic NAB press conference is over and as expected there was no new MFT related announcement. The only real “mystery” is that teaser of a new Compact Cinema Camera. It’s unclear from the pictures what mount it has. But it shouldn’t be MFT because there is a Sigma ART lens on it without an adapter. Is this the long-awaited AF100 successor but without MFT mount? :(

The only thing we know about it are these few lines:

We will know more about it on June 1 at the Cine Gear Expo.
