micro four thirds scenario
Everybody is waiting for news from the micro four thirds world. This technology’s main purposeÂ is to produce small high quality cameras with small high quality lenses. The Pansonic GH1 is just the first step in this direction and it is still not a small enough digital camera for most users.
Wouldn’t it be nice to carry a camera with interchangeable lens in a pocket?
We begin from what we know, Olympus has already announced the first m4/3 camera will be available this summer. We have all seen the mock-up. We don’t know what kind of specs the camera will have. IS? Video? Flash? No idea :(
Some rumors say this year Olympus will release two or three m4/3 cameras. But that’s pure speculation…
Panasonic is working on a digital compact m4/3 model. The holy grail would be to make a LX3 sized camera with an interchangeable lens.
To produce a forecast is quite difficult. The economic crisis makes it difficult for companies to keep a clear roadmap. Canon and Nikon seems to slow down their update cycle for DSLR cameras. We don’t know if this is a good idea. It was quite surprising to see Olympus and Panasonic coming out with very respectable digital cameras like the Olympus E-620 and Panasonic GH1. The now announced Canon 500D is nothing special, we got still the same music plus a defective video feature (20p in 1080 WHAT THE HELL???).
