First video taken with the new Panasonic Varicam 35 4K.


Varicam 35: First Look from Varicam on Vimeo.

Short break from MFT rumors to show you one video sample taken with the new Panasonic’s 4K VariCam 35. It’s not a FT camera but it shows you the quality of the 4K footage. It may be that one day we can have that 14-stops quality on a GH5…or not? :)

Thanks Irfin and David (via Newsshooter).

P.S.: New Panasonic’s 4K VariCam 35 specs:
4096 x 2160 Super 35mm CMOS sensor
14+ Stops
Internal 4K – 120fps
Two XLR inputs.


Two technical notes: Site loading issue and facebook photo sharing.


Short technical note:

1) The site sometimes doesn’t load well or not at all. It’s Photokina time and therefore server has some issues :(  Please just reload the site again to see 43rumors again. Thanks!

2) Facebook mysteriously removed the possibility to share pictures on 43rumors account. I still don’t know why they did this but I will try to fix this or find another way to let readers share their pictures.



GX7 (with free extras) now sells for $615.


The GM5 is coming and the GX7 price is dropping. You can grab it for $615 at 6ave eBay (Click here). Doesn’t mean the GM5 replaces the GX7. I still hope they will make a GX8 in 2015 :)

(FT5) Panasonic LX100 costs 845€. It’s going to be the best fixed lens compact ever made!


LX100 design is very close to the glorious Panasonic LC1 (here on eBay)

While the comments about the soon to be announced GM5 are not that enthusiastic our sources share plenty of excitement about the new LX100! It’s going to become the best compact and fixed lens camera on market. And easily beats the RX100M3 because of the larger 16Mp Four Thirds multiaspect sensor, the superior lens (24-75mm f/1.7-2.8) and the superior video quality (4K). But all that isn’t going to be cheap. The camera will cost 845 Euro according to one of our sources. That’s 50 Euro more than the current RX100M3 price (here one Bay). The LX100 is also a tiny bit larger than the RX100 but still fits in your pocket. I think this could be the perfect 24 hours camera. You can carry it easily with you and has amazing useful specs. What more camera do you need?

 LX100 specs:
– Sensor: 16MP Multi aspect Four Thirds(!). Real resolution is a bit lower.
– 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 lens
– Built-in EVF: 2,76 milion dots, 1.39x / 0.7x magnification
– ISO 200-25600. Can be extended down to 100!
– 4K recording (with time limitation to avoid heating issue)
– exact camera size: 4.52″ x 2.6″ x 2.4″
– hot shoe

Would you consider buying a Panasonic LX100?
