This is the first “real world” image of the new Panasonic 8k camcorder with Panasonic-Fuji organic sensor!

Share

This is the first image of the new Panasonic 8K camcorder. Not only is this a special thing because of the 8K capabilities. The camera uses the first ever organic sensor developed by Panasonic and Fuji!

This prototype camcorder has been show at the broadcast equipment in Chiba City. Panasonic already officially said they will release this camcorder in late 2019. Here are some more details about the sensor:

  • Global Shutter (exposes all pixels at the same time and read the data all at once). This will at last kill the distortion caused by rolling shutters.
  • 88 at 60fps
  • Panasonic said the sensor has “high sensitivity” and “wide dynamic range” but did not share exact numbers
  • It has a step less electronic ND filter (Panasonic said it does NOT chabge color balance when using it)
  • Sensor can switch between “high-sensitivity” mode and “high-saturation” mode

Panasonic said inorganic sensor cannot achieve such high sensitivity and wide dynamic range.

Could it be that Panasonic-Fuji will finally manage to break the Sony sensor dominance?
