Update on the Panasonic-Leica partnership rumor…

Share

The first Leica T picture appeared and as you know it’s said to be made in partnership with Panasonic (More info at MirrorlessRumors). The camera will cost $3,000 and have an APS-C sensor and T-mount. So it’s not going to compete against the MFT or any other current mirrorless system. What’s still not 100% sure is if the Leica T is made by Panasonic or if Panasonic just makes the electronics and then ships them to Germany so that Leica can assemble them there.

What I am sure yet about is that Panasonic will not join such a system. This is all about selling a red logo on a camera :)

First serious Panasonic GH4 contender, the Sony A7s 4K.

Share

Well, this was a short time alone. The GH4 will get a companion very soon! Tomorrow Sony will announce the Full Frame A7s that can record 4K videos too! I don’t know the specs and how bad or good the quality will be. All I know is that it should be more expensive than the Panasonic GH4 and that it’s likely to record 4K at a much lower bitrate and a less good codec (the consumer XAVCs).  Also there is a slightly crop mode on the A/s so it’s not even a “pure” FF. I don’t think Panasonic has to worry about that new competition…

More info at MirrorlessRumors.com. MR will also host a live stream event if you are curious to see the new cam.
