The new Panasonic FF system camera will be announced on September 25. And it’s hard to learn about the camera specs as we know Panasonic will only disclose an early prototype with “some specs”.

But thanks to our trusted sources we can debunk some of the myths going around the web:

  1. The new Panasonic FF will NOT have a multi-aspect sensor
  2. The new Panasonic FF will NOT have an organic sensor

So let’s keep it real :)

To sum up this what we know so far (FT5):

  • Panasonic will only show a prototype with non finalized specs
  • The new camera will go on market by March 2019
  • Panasonic has designed this new sensor
  • The camera will have way more than 30 Megapixels
  • The camera has excellent video quality
  • no multi-aspect sensor, no organic sensor

These are the unconfirmed rumors (FT2….may be right or may be wrong):

  • Costs around $3,000
  • Has no on sensor stabilization
  • 2 slot card
  • 4K with no crop in FF and 10 bit 4:2:2

(FT5) Leaked image of the new Sigma 56mm f/1.4 MFT lens!

This is a nice lens! Sigma will announce the new 56mm f/1.4 lens this week. As usual it will be available as native MFT version too. Well this could make up for the fact that Panasonic and Olympus might not announce a new MFT lens at Photokina :)

Note: Image on top and below show the E-mount version. On the very bottom you see the MFT mount version.

(FT2) Some more unverified Panasonic FF specs…

I have told you many times that Panasonic will announce the development of the new Panasonic FF system camera on September 25. And only few specs will be unveiled. That’s probably why some of the rumors I got are conflicting or may not be right. Here are the latest info I got that has been NOT ve verifiable by my trusted sources:

– HEVC & H.264
– can record 8K (30p, 10BIT external?) and that is main reason for going fullframe
– additional modes are 2k (240p), 2.7K, 4K (120p?), 6K (60p?)
– Super35 Mode for anamorphic shooters
– ProResRaw may be supported with FW upgrades (they will outline a roadmap similiar to GH5)
– special low light mode (whatever that means)
– Photo features comparable to G9
– AI based Autofocus – or DFD next generation. So enhancements can be expected here

Please keep in mind that this rumors is unverified and ranked as FT2 (20-30% chance this is right).

(FT5) Panasonic will launch new DFD2 with Artificial Intelligence….likely with the new Panasonic Full Frame camera!


This is how the current DFD works

A trusted source gave us some insights on the new generation of DFD2 autofocus technology with artifical intelligence:

“Panasonic will not use PDAF pixel on their sensors in the near future. Instead they are working on DFD2 with AI – it may also be possible to “train” your camera. Will come in next year.”

I am 100% sure this info is correct. I am yet not 100% sure this feature will be on the new Panasonic Full Frame camera but a source told me that it’s highly likely as he heard the camera has a new “AI” feature!
