We remember you that there is an official Panasonic statement that increases the chance to see a compact micro four thirds camera from Panasonic:
From: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk

Asked whether Panasonic intends to launch a more compact-style camera body, Ichiro Kitao general manager at Panasonic’s Products Planning Group, said: ‘It is one of the choices – a more entry-level piece than the G1 or a step up piece…In the coming years we would like to expand our G Micro [Four Thirds] system.

From what we know a compact camera could come end of the year (FT 3). Panasonic don’t want lag behind Olympus which cameras are probably out this summer.

first rumors tell us the camera should have 10-12 MPX (FT 3) and video recording (FT 3).

So here we are. We asked dealers and there is a shortcoming for the “old” E-420. They confimed us a new digital SLR from Olympus will be announced. We looked in forums, got emails, googled all the time.

Finally we got the security, the new Olympus E-450 will be announced in April.

And there is more, we give you a list of specs which are certain, and a list of specs which are just probable.

CERTAIN (FT 4):

1) The Olympus 450 will be very similar sized and designed like the old Olympus e-420

2) It will have Art-filter

PROBABLY (FT 3):

3) It will NOT have video capabilities

4) It will NOT have body IS (which surprises me a lot)

5) The same ammount of Megapixel

(FT 2) LX3 styled micro four thirds compact camera from Panasonic?

Share

Got an email from unknown sources. So please don’t take it to serious ok? he wrote the email in japanese and this is the short translation…

Panasonic is working on a LX3 sized camera with micro four thirds sensor and interchangable lens. The camera is a little thicker then the original LX3, it is blue (but there will be cameras with different colors) and has built-in flash. The camera had the 20mm 1.7 lens on it. I’ve seen the rendered picture made by a designer group of Panasonic.”

We know Panasonic is working on a compact sized camera. So this is not a big news. I asked him to send the picture…

I’m waiting for more news about the upcoming Olympus E-450.I still don’t know when exactly the digital camera will be announced. Meanwhile I have got one more information. I asked one source if after the E-450 we will see another DSLR or if it will finally be the turn of a micro four thirds camera. He told me the next camera after the Olympus E-450 will definitely be a micro four thirds camera!!!
