(FT5) Panasonic will launch a GX1 by end of this year!!!


Panasonic patent: Pictures of the m43 video camera (could be the GX1?)

Two of my trusted sources told me that there will be a new and mysterious camera! It is not a G, not a GH and not a GF camera. It’s the first camera of a new system, the Panasonic GX1! The fact that the name contains the “X” leads me to believe that it has been optimized for video like it is for the new “X” lenses. And like it is for the lenses the “X” inside the GX1 will underline the “pro” aspect of the camera. I have no other info from my trusted sources but I am almost 100% sure the the camera will be announced before the next CES event that takes place in Las Vegas in very early January 2012. So what could the GX1 be?

1) A new line of high end compact cameras, a sort of high end GF1.
2) Maybe a camera built-in viewfinder like the Panasonic L1 (See that cam on eBay) to compete against the new Sony hotseller, the Sony NEX-7 (Click here to see that camera).
3) A compact for video optimized camera?

If some of you have more info about that camera feel free to contact me anonymously by using the contact form on the right sidebar. Or write me directly at 43rumors@gmail.com. Thanks!

What in your opinion should the GX1 be?
