(FT5) GX1 will cost around 600 Euro body only, 999 Euro with 14-42mm X lens.

Share

And here are the next “rumors” about the Panasonic GX1. We have been told by tops sources that the camera body will officially be priced at 600 Euro. That’s 200 Euro more than the price of the current Panasonic GF3 and 50 Euro more than the Sony NEX-5n. But it’s likely that the street price will be a little less than 600 Euro. The GX1 + 14-42mm X lens kit will be priced at 999 Euro. The lens alone costs around 430 Euro and getting the kit would save you 30 Euro. Not that much.

Your thoughts about the price:

New Olympus/Panasonic/Slrmagic reviews

SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm F1.6 Test from Bob Gundu on Vimeo.

Digital-photography-school (Click here) posted a full Olympus E-PL3 review: “very sharp pictures and excellent colour rendition.With noise and artefacts the camera is OK all the way to ISO 3200, with ISO 6400 showing trouble. By ISO 12,800 … forget it.
E-PL3 shop links: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

There is also a new Olympus E-PM1 review at Digitalcamerareview (Click here): “If you’re already shooting a PEN camera you’ll be the best judge of whether the latest generation brings enough to the table to get you to move into a new body. If you’re looking to acquire your first mirrorless interchangeable lens model the field is getting more crowded with brands and models, but the PM1 offers some fairly impressive performance at a fairly bargain price“.

(FT5) HOT!!!! First pictures of the GX1!!!!

Jut woke up and there is the leak of the new Panasonic-GX1 at Mobile01 (Update: Pictures have been removed!). Or click on the thumbnails below to see more full size GX1 images.
It looks more like the Panasonic GF1 than the Panasonic LC1. Actually only the grip reminds me a bit the LC1. I hope sooner or later Panasonic or Olympus will also take a look at the competition, like the Fuji X100 or Sony NEX-7. I mean, after almost three years you can try to do something else or not? :)
Anyway, for now we know that the camera will be announced on November 8 in Japan. It will come along a new 1.44k dot external viewfinder (tiltable). It has a 16 Megapixel sensor, 12.800 ISO and a 460k LCD screen (non tiltable). It will have a new processing engine no more JPEG motion recording and be slightly smaller than the GF1. Be sure to be here on 43rumors.com on November 8! I will follow the announcement live and give you all updates you need. And don’t forget to join us on Twitter and Facebook (new fanpage!).

Do you like the GX1 design???

Anamorphic video test by Seb Farges.

LisboAnamorphic in CinemascopE from Seb Farges on Vimeo.

Our friend Seb Farges posted another nice video using the GH2 with the tiny Berthiot anamorphic 2X lens and the C-mount Fujian 35mm f/1.7 lens. Well done Seb! Also Andre Reid from EosHD is a big fan of anamorphic lenses. And you should absolutely check his newly written EOSHD Panasonic GH2 Shooter’s Guide!
