Jut woke up and there is the leak of the new Panasonic-GX1 at Mobile01 (Update: Pictures have been removed!). Or click on the thumbnails below to see more full size GX1 images.
It looks more like the [shoplink 14828 ebay]Panasonic GF1[/shoplink] than the [shoplink 26385 ebay]Panasonic LC1[/shoplink]. Actually only the grip reminds me a bit the LC1. I hope sooner or later Panasonic or Olympus will also take a look at the competition, like the [shoplink 19929]Fuji X100[/shoplink] or [shoplink 25396]Sony NEX-7[/shoplink]. I mean, after almost three years you can try to do something else or not? :)
Anyway, for now we know that the camera will be announced on November 8 in Japan. It will come along a new 1.44k dot external viewfinder (tiltable). It has a 16 Megapixel sensor, 12.800 ISO and a 460k LCD screen (non tiltable). It will have a new processing engine no more JPEG motion recording and be slightly smaller than the GF1. Be sure to be here on 43rumors.com on November 8! I will follow the announcement live and give you all updates you need. And don’t forget to join us on Twitter and Facebook (new fanpage!).
P.S: Thanks to the 32 people sending me the link to mobile01 from 2am to 6am i the night here at Berlin time. I was sleeping and what woke me up was not a sixth sense for a coming rumor but a REAL earthquake here in the middle of the alps!
