(FT5) Panasonic GX1 successor to be announced in late August (and we will like it!)

FacebookShare

The current GX1 sells out for $239 only at Adorama (Click here)

Trusted sources confirmed that the new GX1 successor will be announced in late August! It will be the only Panasonic MFT camera announced this autumn. I have been told it will be a high quality, very new designed camera. And one source expressively said…”43rumors people will like it for sure“.

I will leave ant speculation about what it will be to you. I am trying to convice the sources to spill out the specs… :)

At the moment stores are clearing the GX1 stocks. Adorama sells the body for $239 both in Black (Click here) and Silver (Click here). It’s $244 at Amazon (Click here) And the X kit sells for $499 at Amazon (Click here). This makes it the most sold mirrorless camera of the weekend (here is the ranking). It’s 299 Euro in Germany on eBay.

Next Olympus Glass patent…

FacebookShare

Egami (google translation here) spotted the next Olympus Glass patent with built-in camera. The camera features a 1/2.3 inch sensor with 27mm equivalent lens. A while ago I spotted another patent where the Olympus glass actually acts as a sort of viewfinder of compact or mirrorless cameras (Source freepatentsonline):

There is a lot of talk about the Google Glass. And it seems that Olympus only has patented similar devices. But can a small company like Olympus battle against a giant like Google?

P.S.: The Gogole Glass device isn’t for sale yet but the plenty fo domains containgin “glass” or “google” are for sale on eBay (Click here). The most expensive one is GlassEyeware.com for $75.000!!!
