Livedoor GF2, GH2, LX5, FZ100 renderings (Fake!)…and some speculations.

Livedoor is very well known for their very cool renderings of future camera. Those are NOT the real cameras but I like their designs!
See more of those pictures on: http://blog.livedoor.jp/e_p1/archives/51464445.html

They also say that the LX5 and the FZ100 will be released on July 29th. Other two cameras will be announced on July 25th.
But one of our sources already told us that they are not correct. The cameras will be annoucned a little bit earlier…

P.S.: If the guys from Livedoor are reading me…one suggestion: Remove the “HD” mark form the GH2 and the FZ100 and add “FullHD” ;)

Panasonic GH1 discontinued in UK


Panasonic UK removed the GH1 from their online shop. One of our friends called them to ask why he can’t buy the GH1. Their response was that the camera has been discontinued. Try to call them and to ask when the GH1 replacement is coming ;)

Other european stores like Panasonic Deutschland do have the GH1 in Stock

For now no european or US shop do have the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'JA' OR $loc == 'JP')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic GH1 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Panasonic GH1 out of Stock.

Thanks ROB!

(FT4) FZ100 leaked in Korea.

We were told that a very advanced videocamera would be introduced by Panasonic soon. It is certainly not the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

{?>Panasonic GH1 successor which is expected to be released in September. We just found a leak inside an official korean website that shows the name of the new Panasonic FZ100. It is the successor of the current $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

{?>Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38.

I was told that it will have a “huge” lens and record in FullHD. Even if it is not a MicroFourThirds camera I was told to closely watch that camera because it will bring some very advanced features that may we will see inside the future GH2. Release of the FZ is expected by late July.

The current FZ35/38:

Lots of good words for the new Panasonic G2 on DPreview! Read their review: http://dpreview.com/reviews/PanasonicDMCG2/
