(FT2) Panasonic future MicroFourThirds cameras recording 1920×1080 progressive?


This is the Panasonic camcorder with 1920x1080 progressive recording (not the GH2)

The greek website posted an extremely interesting rumor. They posted an image of the first Panasonic camcorder with three sensors, CMOS, Leica lens and a huge (two-digit number of megapixels) resolution. But what’s really amazing is that it can record in 1920×1080 progressive (1080p)!

And here the BIG rumor for you: They say (if the google translation is correct) that this year Panasonic will also implement 1920×1080 progressive in future MicroFourThirds cameras!

    GH1 already records 24fps 1080p progressive. It’s just “encased” inside 60i interlaced video.

      Hi JJ! Panasonic GH1 records Full HD 1920 x 1080, 60i (sensor output is 24fps)(FHD: 17Mbps). But I would be happy with a REAL 30fps or 60fps (I am dreaming) progressive.

    For reasons of compatibility with existing displays, usually the full HD progressive capture (24,25 or 30p) is embeded in an interlaced transportation stream 1920×1080/50i/60i.
    Two half frames of a progressively captured frame are shown one after another -the progressive segmented frame or PSF (not 24p, this is overlayed with pulldown) . This also counteracts display jitter.
    50/60p are not likely at this stage on consumer stuff. They require double data rates.
    In PAL GH1 captures 25p over 1920×1080/50i transportation PSF stream.

  • They don’t say that at all. When they say it can be the year of photogenic 1080p it means that it will finally look good without any artifacts or banding.:×1080-progressive-.html&

  • you know my name

    ahh, seems the Trine is a little bit more possible
    just saying

  • the gh1 can already do 1080p (at 24fps with pulldown which is 60i but 1080p nontheless)
    the tm700 can do 1080p60
    so whats the big deal with this post?
    maybe theyre talking about the upcoming af100?

    seems like a post that would be exciting in 2008
