(FT4) Panasonic MFT camera in September?

Share

Finally we got a rumor from a more reliable source…from Panasonic France!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In an interview with Photobusiness.fr , a French online magazine, he (Luc Saint-Elie, Panasonic France.) hints that the next Panasonic MicroFourThirds cameras could be unveiled in September. He adds that the ‘platform’ could allow manufacturers to come up with radical design such as a spherical camera. You can read the full interview here (in French).

Original interview with google translation in english here

DAMN! May our BIG Source were right saying the Panasonic MFT camera could be released soon!!! I will contact him and ask him for the specs!
May that’s why there are not many in stock?

UPDATE:

Asked about Luc Saint Elie’s statement, Panasonic UK had this to say: “The statement in that article solely reflects Luc Elie’s personal opinion. Panasonic is evaluating options to constantly expand the MicroFourThirds product category, which also includes new body designs. At this time however, there is nothing that we would have to announce.

Personal opinion: Of course Panasonic UK denies the “rumor”. They can’t do anything else!

P.S.: Thanks Henry for sending the link!

External EVF. The difficulty to deal with rumors.

Share

The external EVF:
Olympus unofficially told some people (like the administrators from http://www.forum-fourthirds.de and to some of our friends in London and Hong Kong) that there will be soon an external EVF. Instinctively I thought the External EVF should work for the E-P1.

But now I am beginning to believe that the external EVF could work for the next PEN only! So yes It COULD be that I made a mistake (may I will know it soon). The EVF is a FT5 (sure thing) rumor but we do not know if it can be used on the E-P1. Accept my excuses I am not a robot, I am a man working on this website in the time between my real work and my family time. Sometimes my sources are not accurate enough  (see the latest LX4 rumor) sometimes Olympus and Panasonic do changes and that’s why rumors could change and sometimes I can be an Idiot ;)

I hope you can appreciate my beeing honest to you. And I promise you I will be more accurate with our next rumors.

Many thanks to all of you,

Ale

(FT5) Very important EVF update

Share

From one of our best sources: “There will be soon (October) a new external Electronic Viewfinder you can attach on the hotshoe of the PEN. The Hotshoe alone can’t deliver the image. You need a cable to connect the Pen to the EVF.”

I  (Alejandro from 43rumors) confess I have one single doubt. Will the EVF work with the E-P1 and the next Olympus MicroFourThirds cameras? Or with the E-P1 only? Or with the next Pen model only? The two BIG source don’t gave me a clear answer…

I have the doubt because no source mentions the E-P1 (they say PEN). May it is just me making problems for nothing.

UPDATE: The sources can’t or won’t tell me more. Personally I can’t imagine how the cable could connect the E-P1 to the EVF on the hotshoe. You want be able to hold the camera.

43rumors is 100% that there will be an attachable external electronic viewfinder. The EVF can be fixed on the hotshoe mount. The cable will connect the EVF to the PEN. And the EVF should be released early October. That means or this thing works with the E-P1 or the EVF will be released together with the next PEN which should be able to use this stuff ;)
