(FT5) The new Panasonic FF camera aims for the big guys: Will compete against the Sony A9, Nikon D850 and top Canon cameras


After many discussions with sources I can tell you this:

The new Panasonic Full Frame camera is not just a video focused camera. And most certainly it’s not an entry-level Full Frame. This will be an ultimate High End Full Frame camera that aims to compete against the best cameras of the competition like the Sony A9 and Nikon D850. But it will have two distinctive characteristics:

1) it’s strong in both video (4k) and stills (has High resolution sensor!)
2) It’s cheaper than the competition! -> Unconfirmed…but yet rumored to be around $3,000…

This sounds like a killer camera because it will have three things in one: great video, super speed and high resolution all in one camera!

There is still one major thing we have to learn about: The lens roadmap…I hope there are many fast primes and zoom right from the start! If it used theleica SL mount we will at least have sixe lenses avaialable now. They have great quality but also a great price (see here) :(

To sum up this what we know so far (FT5):

  • Panasonic will announce a new Full Frame Mirrorless system camera on September 25
  • Panasonic will only show a prototype with non finalized specs
  • The new camera will go on market by March 2019
  • Panasonic has designed this new sensor
  • The camera will have “way more” than 30 Megapixels
  • The camera has excellent video quality

These are the unconfirmed rumors (FT2….may be right or may be wrong):

  • The camera will take current MFT lenses via adapter
  • Costs around $3,000
  • Has no on sensor stabilization
  • 2 slot card
  • 4K with no crop in FF and 10 bit 4:2:2
  • weather sealed
  • Olympus is not joining the Panasonic FF system

You can join the new Panasonic Full Frame Facebook group if you plan to buy this camera. There you can discuss all features and tests once it’s released!

About Aurora HDR 2019:
Skylum’s Quantum HDR Engine harnesses the power of AI for a more streamlined editing experience than ever before. It reduces burned-out colors, loss of contrast, noise and unnatural lighting caused by halos and unstable deghosting.

Skylum’s developers tested thousands of bracketed shots through a neural network, and used the results to develop the technology needed for creating incredible HDR photographs – whether it’s real estate, landscape, cityscape or any other type of HDR photography.

New Quantum HDR Engine
LUTs support with 11 New Integrated LUTs
Photoshop plugins support
