(FT5) GX2 is larger than the previous GX1.

Share

Another trusted source said that he saw the camera. And it’s larger than the current GX1. He couldn’t share the specs but he said it’s a beautiful camera that has all tech required nowadays. There will be a “special kit” for this camera too. Yep, he also said it’s has the lines and look that reminds of the L1-LC1.

As reported by Digicaminfo and my sources the camera has in-body IS, tiltable EVF, almost certainly a new 18MP sensor. And from what I read from the patent It could have an anti-alias filter and a new resolution EVF (close to 2 Mio).

Question to readers:

Are you a potential GX2 buyer?

Olympus E-Pm2 gets Dpreviewed.

Share

The cheapest of all MFT cameras with the Sony 16 Megapixel sensor got tested at Dpreview (Click here). The camera earned a Silver award with the following motivation: “The Olympus PEN-EPM2 is a point-and-shoot mirrorless camera which does exactly what a novice will need it to. For more adventurous users, there’s a lot of functionality hidden beneath the skin (including the image quality of the OM-D) making the E-PM2 a potentially very attractive second camera.

A couple of weeks ago there was a deal on the camera+lens. While it’ gone form large US online stores it’s still available at NYC 17thstreetphoto on eBay: In Black (Click here), Silver (Click here), White (Click here) and Red (Click here). The “older” E-Pm1 with lens sells for $285 at Amazon (Click here). And 199 Euri on Finland at Rajalacamera…lol :)

Editor’s note: Overall I still think Olympus should narrow the PEN range. The E-PL should be the entry level camera and the  E-P the more advanced camera. And the E-P5 should cost at least $100 less too. Now it has the same price of the OMD while the OMD has built-in EVF. Of course the E-P5 has some new Bells and whistles. But it will not convince many to buy it.

Question to sources about the GX2 (and a little bit of help from my readers required).

Share

As you know almost all sources use the anonymous contact form to send me rumors. I have a couple of questions for them and a question for my readers.

Question to sources:
1) Will the new Panasonic GX camera use the new Color Splitter sensor? P.S.: For readers, I don’t think it will so don’t get too excited. I only want to be sure of that.
2) What price can we expect for the body only?
3) What is the resolution of the EVF?

To readers:
I lost the link to the exact patent describing the GX in body stabilization system. I posted it here in April 2012 (but forgot to add the link). You may help me to find it again by searching through freepatentsonline (or other sites like that).

Thanks to all sources and readers for your help :)

(FT5) The dreamcamera will become true! New GX has in body IS and tiltable EVF!!!

Share

Hurray!!! Two top trusted sources confirmed it yesterday. The New GX camera has indeed in body IS and tiltable built-in EVF: They expressly told me that the patent I posted in past describe almost exactly the real camera! As you know the last two years I found these images on patents describing a new camera with built-in tiltable EVF on the corner of the camera. It has built-in flash and the image stabilization which image you can see here:

I am now going to prepare the full patents roundup so that you can read them in the original language. But back to my sources. As I told you two very top sources confirmed the in body stabilization and tiltable EVF information. One of them also confirmed the “new sensor” (18 Megapixel). They also gave me some more bits I am going to disclose soon on 43rumors (P.S.: I am using those bits as reference for the rumors I am getting right now from more anonymous sources. This way I can be sure the info I receive from them is correct too).

One source also added that it was Panasonic goal’s to revive the Four Thirds L1 camera design (here on eBay). So expect the new GX camera to look as cool as that one :)

This is going to be a really exciting time now. new OMD (coming early September), new GX (in late August), the new lenses….I think I will have little time for vacation this summer :(
