We just learned that the new Panasonic GH2 will be available starting by late October.  We also know the EVF and LCD will both have a higher resolution than the current Panasonic GH1 but we are not sure about the exact specs. Feel free to contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com if you want to tell me more about it! Thanks!

Olympus shows a compact camera (mockup) with Zuiko lens

Image courtesy: Quesabesde

Olympus just announced the development of the new high-end compact camera (for enthusiasts) with fixed lens.

Quesabesde has been told that it will use a fast zoom lens. Quesabesde assumes the lens will start at least at 28 mm. It will not use a MicroFourThirds sensor! It has a fixed 3 inch screen, a button to record their own video and HDMI connections. SO it looks like we have to do with a camera that is aimed to compete against the Panasonic LX5 and Canon S90/95.

UPDATE: CNET Asiaspoke to Olympus Singapore, who told us that this camera is expected to have a zoom lens and a large sensor like the LX5. It also confirmed this shooter won’t employ a Four Thirds sensor.”

Fuji doesn’t join MicroFourThirds and makes their own perfect PEN :)

Let me say this: “Damn that is a cool camera!”. Fuji just announced the FinePix X100, a rangefinderstyled 12.3MP APS-C-based camera with Hybrid Viewfinder! The “Hybrid Viewfinder that enables users to toggle between optical and electronic viewfinders and display intricate shooting information right into the OVF” (Source: Engadget). That’s what I call “Innovation”! I hope Olympus and/or Panasonic will show us a similar concept soon (Hey Olympus, wouldn’t that be a perfect PEN? You did awesome rangfindercameras in the past like the Olympus RC (Click here to see the camera design on eBay!). The bad news is that it uses a fixed 23mm f/2.0 lens (The lens itself is gorgeous). There is no price indication yet but you can bet that that camera will be a lot cheaper than the direct competitor the Leica X1 ($1.995 at Amazon)!. The FinePix X100 will be in Stock by early 2011.

P.S: Again, can someone explain me why Fuji uses a fixed lens? Why not make it interchangeable???

Would you love to see such a camera from Olympus and/or Panasonic?
