(FT5) Awesome new Panasonic camera with large(?) sensor, fixed 3x zoom lens and innovative Leica designed rangefinder!


There are days you can’t miss to visit 43rumors…and today is one of those days. Finally after three months of wait a new camera is going to be announced. And I am sure that many of you will like the rumors we are going to post today! As usual 43rumors is the first to report you the news ;)

UPDATE: According to our sources Panasonic will soon (yes in July!) launch the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic LX3 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Panasonic LX3). The new camera will have 3x zoom lens which our source told us to be an awesome Leica lens. We do not have a reliable info about the focal lenght but we expect to get more detailled infos soon. And now hold in your breath…(drumming)….it will have a special rangefinder-type optical viewfinder that is borrowed from Leica with marks in it for max zoom and fully wide angle!

For Leica fans: One of our new sources said that there could be a Leica version of the camera. That sounds a little bit weird because Leica already launched a very similar camera…the Leica X1. We will try to confirm the rumor as soon as possible!

The $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Sigma DP2, the “older” Sigma DP1 and the Leica X1 are the only large sensor compact and fixed lens cameras to date but both do use a prime lens only.

Crazy hack: Patched Panasonic GF1 now records up to 100MBit/s!!!

Panasonic GF1 ’400 24′ settings – 720/30 100mbit 422 from huw jenkins on Vimeo.

Emmy Award winner Huw Jenkins just sent us the link to his video shoot with the patched $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($loc == 'JA' OR $loc == 'JP')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GF1 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Panasonic GF1 with 100Mbit/s!

Shot with my new ’400 24′ settings.
these settings allow you to record clips of up to 2 minutes 27 seconds on the GF1 at 100mbits, 422 color space, 720/30fps
more stable than ’410 24′, you can now delete from the class 10 SD card and re-record without needing to format (at a push, see below).

single error trip:
‘motion recording was cancelled due to the limitation of the writing speed of the card’
each time you turn on the camera, a single error trip will occur. as with all GF1 100mbit settings so far, the first high bitrate clip recorded will trip this error message, ignore it and continue shooting. the gf1 will record perfectly till you switch off the camera.

card formating:
use a freshly formated class 10 card. if the card already had data on it, files might be fragmented which is more than likely to cause multiple recording errors. this also occurs when deleting files and re-recording. Sometimes my sd (sandisk) can handle this, other times it fails.

when the card is full, the last 10-30 seconds on a 8gb SD fails to write.

file size / clip length:
the maximum size file i can record at any bitrate is 1.85gb. when using ’400 24′, the bitrate is variable, depending on the complexity of the image being recorded. here is a clip length guide
4 minutes 42 seconds at 56.29 Mbits/second
2 minutes 27 seconds at 100.09 Mbits/second

the settings, for ptool 3.36 or higher:
change only the following
version change: 1 higher than your current version
all Q settings: set to 400
all T settings: set to 24
240->244: selected
leave everything else unselected

(FT4) New Panasonic sensor with gapless design

Finally we received a small but very good info from trusted sources about the next Panasonic sensor. The new sensor will have gapless Micro-lenses.
Canon has been the first to deliver such a sensor with the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon 50D if ($sel != '1')
{?>Canon 50D (and lately with the Canon 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV). Chuck Westfall, Technical Advisor at Canon USA said that “noise levels are expected to be 1 to 1.5 stops better in the high ISO range” (Source: Rob Galbraith).

The Panasonic sensor is ready for mass-production so it is very likely that we will see that sensor inside the new GH2 (launch to be expected late September at Photokina). We didn’t get any further details yet but the info we post here today came from our very best sources!

Good news!
