(FT3) UPDATED: New m43 camcorder to be announced after-tomorrow?
[/shoplink] Image on top: The current [shoplink 16841 ebay]AG-AF100 camcorder[/shoplink].
UPDATE: Made a big typo. The camera should arrive after tomorrow April 11th and not tomorrow the 10th.
A source told me that Panasonic should unveil new stuff tomorrow April 11th (Japan time). Very likely a new Micro Four Thirds AG-AF camcorder will be announced. The rumor hasn’t been confirmed by other sources yet that’s why it has the FT3 value only for now (See FT ranking at the bottom of this post if you don’t know what it is). I don’t expect the G5 yet (will be announced in May) or the new X zoom lenses (late June) or the GH3 (late August/early September).
The one interesting thing about the new m43 camcorder could be the rumored new Super 35mm sized sensor. But also this is juts an unconfirmed rumor for now. let’s see what happens tomorrow!
