(FT2) Panasonic Lumix GP1 in November?

This one is probably a fools day joke. But the author of the rumor seems to be pretty convinced that this is a “real” rumor. I didn’t hear anything about such a camera but beeing a rumor website I will post that :)

Keep in mind. This rumor has a very high chance to be fake ok?

Source: Aleo Veuliah – dpreview forum.

- The GP1 is a pro camera, weather sealed, all in metal
- 14 megapixels, 12 effective, all ratios, new BL Live MOS sensor
- Iso up to 6400, with true clean 3200 iso, Hi setting to 12800
- Touch screen like the Panasonic G2, New Venus HD III engine
- The design is like the G1 and G2, the EVF is better
- Video Full HD 60 frames at full resolution
- New feature is multi spot metering
- 6 FPS, and a new Pro Manual mode

Aleo please contact me :)

Panasonic digital cameras are the most reliable!

According to latest studies from SquareTradePanasonic is the most reliable camera brand. For both inexpensive cameras under $300 and more expensive models up to $500, Panasonic cameras failed at a substantially lower rate than other brands: 5.3 percent for the cheapies and just 1.9 percent for more expensive models, over the first two years of ownership. That’s well ahead of all competitors and, in the case of Panasonic’s higher-end cameras, better than the failure rate for ultra-pricey DSLR cameras.

(FT3) No Fuji MicroFourThirds camera

UPDATE: This is not a fools day joke!

One month ago we received a rumor from one single source saying that Fuji has choosen to not join MicroFourThirds. Now photorumors received a new rumor which seems to confirm the rumor I had.

Fujifilm Japan will cease production of F200EXR in May 2010. Also, a new S-Pro series professional camera is currently in planning:

* Not a Micro Four Thirds camera
* Using a 12-Megapixel APS-C SuperCCD EXR Pro sensor
* Possibly incorporating either M-mount (Leica) or F-mount (Nikon)
* Extended 1000% wide dynamic range
* Full HD photos and video with HDMI connection
* Built-in Dual IS image stabilization
* ISO 12,8000″

During the past month I received some rumors about Fuji. I didn’t write you anything because it is not clear what’s happening with Fuji. My “feeling” is that Fuji will play a role together with Olympus sooner or later…

(FT3) Doubts about the next FourThirds announcement and the future roadmap

Although one reliable source confirmed that one FourThirds entry-level camera should be released in April, other sources expressed some doubts. I thought it would be better to let you know that. I asked the sources to check again the info they received about the next FourThirds camera.

Important editors note:
Lately I have noticed how difficult it has been for us to get reliable FourThirds rumors. The latest official Olympus statements make me believe the roadmap for FourThirds isn’t that clear. It surprises me how well our sources are doing with MicroFourThirds rumors but not so much with FourThirds rumors. That’s why I think that Olympus might have developed a new FourThirds working model but they are holding them back for unknown reasons.
I repeat, this is just my opinion, but I believe some kind of revolution is going on Olympus strategy.
