If you are considering to buy a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ7 you can read the review at Photography Bay. Summa summarum they gave the camera a value of “ESSENTIAL”. It is an incredible camera if you consider the zoom range. It starts with a wide angle of 25mm and ends with a 300mm ( so that you can easily look inside the neighbours houses LOL). The new AVCHD Lite codec is a big step forward in video quality.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ7 is really a wonderful camera!

micro four thirds scenario

Everybody is waiting for news from the micro four thirds world. This technology’s main purpose  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?

Rumors summary:

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???).

What does 43rumors know?

We are getting some first information about the upcoming Olympus camera and will write soon about it. But we don’t have any certain info now.

We ask you to share your rumors if you have any!

What is for sure, from now to June/July we will get from day to day more excited!
