Very wild rumors: Did Panasonic make the new Nikon D5 4K Full Frame sensor?



an imaginary new Nikon D5 FF camera by

This is a very wild rumor but if true it means Panasonic is really going into a new territory: Nikonrumors says the next Nikon D5 Full Frame camera will feature a 20 megapixel Full Frame sensor , have native(!) 102,400 ISO and 4K video recording. And his wild guess is that it’s made by the Panasonic owned Socionext company:

Socionext is a new company established by the consolidation of the system LSI businesses of Fujitsu Limited and Panasonic Corporation. It has a track record of development and delivery of products for various video applications. Socionext is now sampling 4K HEVC real-time encoder MB86M31. Together with MN2WS03101A, the company will support total video solution for a wide range of applications.

If true that means Panasonic has access to new Full Frame sensor tech. maybe it’s something they could use for a future “Macro Four Thirds” Full Frame system :)
