(FT3) UPDATED-> The camera on the teaser is a new compact camera (no MicroFourThirds?)

Share

That is what one of my trusted sources are “suggessting” me: “the camera will not be what people expect“…. (No MFT?).

UPDATE: Olympus will also announce a new Tough camera (very likely not the one shown in the teaser):
A “supposed” Olympus product tester wrote inside the bogley.com forum that “they are coming out with an updated Tough series camera soon – hush hush. Can’t give away details but it’s even better than before! Thus, as I await for the new camera to arrive I’ll be selling my old one…

Private message: I am receiving so many rumors news and emails that I had to take one day holiday from my real job. Today I will read all the emails and rumors again and I hope i will not forget to answer you all :)

During the last 24 hours I received 79 e-mails with rumors from you. As you know I have also a real job and sometimes I can’t answer you immediately and sometimes I forget completely about it because I’m so busy. That’s why I want to say thank you all directly from here…the 43rumors blog!

P.S.: The day will come when I will be able to clone myself :)

New compact camera or MicroFourThirds?

The teaser has been posted inside the Stylus Though section. So may it is not a MicroFourThirds camera. The official MicroFourThirds section doesn’t show the teaser!

Need some help from my trusted sources: Please send your rumors to 43rumors@gmail.com! :)

UPDATE -1: it could be a new Low-Entry compact camera with big 4/3 sensor. Something like the Sigma DP2

UPDATE -2: A veeeery reliable source sent me this “Don’t be distracted on the 2nd. Keep your eye on the prize.”

Will you buy the new GH2?

Share

Just received this:

Hi, just some supportive information with regards to the release of new Olympus fourthirds models:
An Olympus source stated that new models (not compacts) would be released in the beginning of february, so if not on the 2nd, then shortly after. And they would be able to supply me with one in the beginning of March (but whether that is before or after the official release date, I do not know). I neither have information of whether there will be one or two model.

(FT2) Panasonic future MicroFourThirds cameras recording 1920×1080 progressive?

Share

This is the Panasonic camcorder with 1920x1080 progressive recording (not the GH2)

The greek website FullHD.gr posted an extremely interesting rumor. They posted an image of the first Panasonic camcorder with three sensors, CMOS, Leica lens and a huge (two-digit number of megapixels) resolution. But what’s really amazing is that it can record in 1920×1080 progressive (1080p)!

And here the BIG rumor for you: They say (if the google translation is correct) that this year Panasonic will also implement 1920×1080 progressive in future MicroFourThirds cameras!
