(FT5) Panasonic GH2 discovered on the beach :)

Share

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have been requested to remove the picture and DVXuser reference :(

The GH2 looks similar to a G2, but got a flash card door on the right like the GH1!

Reminder:

The Panasonic GH2 (along the 14mm, 100-300mm and 3D lenses) will be announced on Tuesday September 21 (the first day of Photokina). It will have a new 18 Megapixel multi aspect sensor. Like the Canon 7D and Canon T2i (550D) this is the highest resolution sensor available for non-fullframe cameras (APS-C or FourThirds). But because it is a multi-aspect sensor the effective resolution will be 16 Megapixel. It is the highest resolution sensor ever used for a (Micro-)FourThirds camera. The new Olympus E-5 (to be announced on September 14) will not use that sensor.

In the meanwhile the GH1 is becoming cheaper and cheaper almost eveywhere (Click here to check the current price). But keep in mind that the Gh1 hack doesn’t work anymore with the newest Panasonic firmware!

(FT5) One more E-5 leak…

The new edition of the japanese Camera Style Magazine leaks the new Olympus E-5. You can pre-order the magazine (due to release on the 17th Sept) at Amazon Japan. Click on the Magazine cover picture to enlarge it and the E-5 appears on the top right. The subtitle says: “The pursue for the highest picture quality, E-5 the most advanced/best camera from Olympus“.

ME like the subtitle :)

P.S.: Zone-10 just published a very long article about the E-5 and the modular camera rumors: http://zone-10.com/cmsm/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=535&Itemid=1

P.P.S.: Olympus E-P1 (Body Only) for $399 at Amazon (Click here)..ME like the E-P1 :)

(FT5) UPDATED: Panasonic AG-AF101 with 1080 60/50p and for 5.830 Euro (VAT included)!

UPDATE: According to the Panasonic-Broadcast press release they have implemented variable frame rate inside the AVCHD function! Read: “variable frame rates available in 1080p, selectable in 20 steps from 12p to 60p at 60Hz and 20 steps from 12p to 50p at 50Hz. Playback is available at 1080/24p, 1080/25p or 1080/30p. Playback at 1080/60p and 1080/50p are not available on this product.

Panasonic has introduced at IBC a further production stage of the MicroFourThirds HD Camcorders AG-AF101 (which is the European model of the AF100). 70% of the camera development is completed. According to Panasonic the price will be 5.830€ for Europe (VAT included and body only). Whether this is also a lens is to be understood, is not yet clear.

The good news is that it will have:
– variable frame rates up to 1080/60p
– 2.35:1 frame markings in the viewfinder
– simultaneous HDMI and HD-SDI output
– sync timecode through LTC
– LCD will actually be better than the one on the HPX370
– In addition, the camera body is held in modular parts for various enhancements (Example: You can remove the handgrip)

You can get in touch with Barry Green (Panasonic) at DVXuser-forum. And he said: “This prototype isn’t finished yet, so I can’t say some things definitively, but I can say this – I’m done with shooting on DSLRs. This thing is the bomb.” … “As for images – well, imagine a fully-hacked, fully-improved GH13 with better sensitivity and without the aliasing or low-light banding, and that’s a good start. It crushes the 7D/5D for clarity and detail, and I shot brick buildings at every possible zoom setting, and there just isn’t any rainbow moire.
The NEX-VG10 Full HD Interchangeable Lens Camcorder (which has a price of $1999) is placed in a different category. Much cheaper but also less features…

Recap: Our best rumors (GH2, E-5 and more)

It’s time for a rumors recap! All those rumors are from our reliable sources so there is an 80-90% chance those rumors will prove out true!

Panasonic rumors:
1) Panasonic will announce new products on September 21
2) Following products will be unveiled:
– GH2
– 14mm (f/2.5?)
– 100-300mm
– 3D lens
3) The GH2 has a new 18Megapixels multi-scale sensor (16 effective Megapixels)  -> Click here to read more
3) The compact GF2 will be unveiled few months after Photokina (December-February) ->Click here to read more
4) There will be a new lens roadmap that will include the fast lenses we were talking about since months (faster than f/1.4!)

Olympus rumors:
1) Olympus will announce new products on September 14. ->Click here to read more
2) The E-5 will have a 12Megapixel sensor ->Click here to read more

Is that everything we are going to see at Photokina? Don’t believe that! What I can tell you is that I received tons of rumors about the following stuff:

1) Olympus new camera system (modular, super43 sensor, Kodak and more). Maybe Olympus will talk about that at Photokina…
2) Panasonic new technology (?)
3) One more company could release MFT products soon (and we will give you more news about that soon!)

A personal note: Talking with my sources I got the feeling that there is much more to come than just the GH2 and E-5. Don’t know if there will be other real products but my bet is that there will be some unexpected BIG news coming from both companies!

Stay tuned on 43rumors….

Ale
