Question to sources about the GX2 (and a little bit of help from my readers required).

FacebookShare

As you know almost all sources use the anonymous contact form to send me rumors. I have a couple of questions for them and a question for my readers.

Question to sources:
1) Will the new Panasonic GX camera use the new Color Splitter sensor? P.S.: For readers, I don’t think it will so don’t get too excited. I only want to be sure of that.
2) What price can we expect for the body only?
3) What is the resolution of the EVF?

To readers:
I lost the link to the exact patent describing the GX in body stabilization system. I posted it here in April 2012 (but forgot to add the link). You may help me to find it again by searching through freepatentsonline (or other sites like that).

Thanks to all sources and readers for your help :)

(FT5) The dreamcamera will become true! New GX has in body IS and tiltable EVF!!!

FacebookShare

Hurray!!! Two top trusted sources confirmed it yesterday. The New GX camera has indeed in body IS and tiltable built-in EVF: They expressly told me that the patent I posted in past describe almost exactly the real camera! As you know the last two years I found these images on patents describing a new camera with built-in tiltable EVF on the corner of the camera. It has built-in flash and the image stabilization which image you can see here:

I am now going to prepare the full patents roundup so that you can read them in the original language. But back to my sources. As I told you two very top sources confirmed the in body stabilization and tiltable EVF information. One of them also confirmed the “new sensor” (18 Megapixel). They also gave me some more bits I am going to disclose soon on 43rumors (P.S.: I am using those bits as reference for the rumors I am getting right now from more anonymous sources. This way I can be sure the info I receive from them is correct too).

One source also added that it was Panasonic goal’s to revive the Four Thirds L1 camera design (here on eBay). So expect the new GX camera to look as cool as that one :)

This is going to be a really exciting time now. new OMD (coming early September), new GX (in late August), the new lenses….I think I will have little time for vacation this summer :(

(FT3) First possible GX2 specs! In body stabilization and titlable viewfinder?

FacebookShare

The GX2 with tiltable EVF has been described in US patents (Source: Freepatentsonline).

Here are first possible specs for the new GX2 via Digicaminfo!

  • Tiltable built-in viewfinder
  • Fastest shutter is 1/8000 second
  • New sensor of 18 million pixels
  • Within the body image stabilization

I am not sure yet about these specs yet. I have a good source that is sharing some bits and I am waiting for more sources to confirm the info I got. So keep calm until I can upgrade (hopefully) the rumor to FT5 level. I don’t want you do be disappointed if something doesn’t come true. That said, if the camera has tiltable viewfinder, new sensor and in body image stabilization….it’s a winner!

P.S.: And a winner is the GX1 for $199 at RobertsCamera on eBay US (Click here). Almost 250 cameras sold in 18 hours!!!!
