(FT2) The additional Panasonic GF1 specs ?


I just checked all my rumor sources and I have some additional specs for you:

-LCD moniter 960*RGB*540 (HITACHI displays which is an affiliate
company of Panasonic)
-Image Sensor 12Mpixels LiveMOS. Global shutter. Multi aspect.
-AVCHD 1080p 60fps 17Mbps(30fps 24Mbps)
-Dimensions/Weight 138x95x33mm/293g(contains battery)
-color variation Titanium(titanium coating)/Carbon Black(carbon
fiber)/Midnight Purple

The image leaks are probably real images but I am waiting for some confirmation from our bigger sources!

UPDATE: I downgraded the rumor value from FT3 to FT2. I am waiting for some confirmation from other sources…

  • web

    Your posted dims cannot be right – 108mmx95mm is almost square!

  • Can that be right … a global shutter on a CMOS sensor??? Most are Rolling Shutter.


  • ano

    1080p 60fps?

  • Global Shutter??? … i thought only CCD sensors were Global Shutter???


  • Forester

    those measurements (138×95x33mm) also seem really off. way to big.

  • Joe

    The GF1 says AVCHD Lite on the body which means it’s 720p. No 1080p. So the rest of those specs are dubious.

  • iMikl

    What about the EVF-Rumors?

  • nis

    The quoted bit rates for the 1080p video are lower than that of 720p… highly improbable.

  • adessio

    what about the sensor? is it the backlit one?
    the EVF will be sold separately as the connector can be seen above the hot shoe.
    and when is Panasonic starts using AMOLED?
    the Global shutter doesn’t sound real to me, as well the size.
    but in the end i like it more than the EP-1.

    CMOS can have a global shutter. It requires a second transistor for each photosite to store charge simultaneously across the whole sensor. Afterward, the secondary transistors are read in the normal rolling shutter manner.
