The last two weeks I got more feedback from trusted sources about the next (very soon to come) new MFT camera announcements:
Panasonic GH 4K
Two more sources confirmed a new GH 4K camera announcement for the first half of 2014. They also said that the specs we posted here on 43rumors are very close to the final camera specs. Here they are:
1mil dot OLED screen
21mm OLED viewfinder, 3,000+ dot.
200mbps mp4 All-i/100mbps IPB
4:2:2 10/8bit output
3G-SDI and XLR adaptor (An adaptor that the camera sits on with XLR x2, HD-SDI x4)
And other sources also confirmed the entry level OMD will be announced in February. No specs yet although we can expect the camera to have minor differences only (compared with the EM5).
Both cameras are coming for sure! I didn’t get any info yet about new PEN and other G or GF cameras.
Leica and Sigma Suprises:
I am currently working to see if Sigma will make a new MFT camera. What’s 100% sure is that Leica will NOT launch an MFT camera.
P.S.: More rumors about the new lenses will be posted soon!
