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

Share

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!!!!

Look at this: The GH2 using an original WW2 bomber lens!

Share

During the WW2 the US military used the Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm f/2.5 on bombers to photograph German military and industrial facilities. PolygonSandwich blog owner (Click here) made the impossible possible and uses this lens to take pictures with the Panasonic GH2! That is definitely the biggest lens ever used for a digital mirrorless camera. You cna see image samples on his blog. There is also a how to guide if you want to do something like this too.

The lens itself costs around $600 used on eBay (Click here).
