(FT5) First Panasonic GH2 picture

Finally we have the first image of the Panasonic GH2! The deisgn is closer to the current Panasonic G2 than the older Panasonic GH1.

The GH2 has following specs:
– 18 Megapixels multiscale sensor (16 effective Megapixels)
– 100-12.800 ISO (But I dont know how it takes the 12.800 ISO pictures)
– 1080i60 24Mbit/s AVCHD video recording
– The GH2 has one LSI with three cores (instead of current two cores of the GH1)
– Improved AF speed (0.099 second with the 14-140mm kit-lens)
– High-speed burst shooting of 5 fps with 16 MP
– Super high-speed burst shooting of 40 fps (lower resolution)
– Touch screen LCD
– announced 21 September at photokina
(FT3)Two new sources just told us the camera has real 1080p60 output “masked” as 1080i60. This because AVCHD specification does not include 1080p60. You have to set it to 60p (manually) in Final Cut (or other editing software). This rumor has to be confirmed by our sources so take it with a grain of salt!

If specs are correct (1080p60 included) and real image quality ok will you buy the GH2?

(FT4) More small Panasonic GH2 details (24Mbit/s and 1 stop ISO improvement)

IMPORTANT: Days ago a DVXforum user spotted and photographed the Panasonic GH2 on the beach. He contacted me and asked me to remove the leaked images I posted on 43rumors. I had to fulfil his request. Anyway, that’s one more proof that this was the real GH2! For those of you that didn’t see the camera don’t worry. Imagine the Panasonic G2 with flash card door on the same place of the Panasonic GH1…that’s it!

I already told you the GH2 uses a new 18 megapixels multi-aspect sensor (16 effective Megapixels).

Today 43rumors learned that the GH2 will record 1080/60i (UPDATE: this is the container! we will give you more details about the real output as soon as we can but it could be 60p!!! This because the AVCHD specification doesn’t include 1080/60p). The camera can also record at a higher bitrate 24Mbit/s AVCHD. I was a little bit worried because of the Megapixels number increase but according to our sources Panasonic managed to improve the High-ISO performance by 1 stop (if true that would be an awesome news!).

Price of the camera $1499 (The current Panasonic GH1 is in Stock for $1149).

If you have more news about the GH2 feel free to contact me using the right sidebar. It doesn’t store your IP-address and neither Name or Email are required. Every little help…helps! Thanks!
