NO 24P OR AVCHD 2.0 ON THE NEW PANASONIC GX1

The new Panasonic GX1 was just officially announced but I will cut right to the chase for all the video users out there. looking through the spec spec sheet, 24P and AVCHD 2.0 are not there. I can understand no AVCHD 2.0 but the lack of 24p is really a bummer. Also there is no mic input and if you use the external EVF then putting a mic on the hot shoe is out of the question. I know this is a primarily a stills camera but this could have a made an awesome little “B” hybrid video camera. Hopefully the GH3 will be announced soon now that Panasonic have announced their “pro” model of the GF series.

The AVCHD video format specification has been updated to include 1080 60p and 50p video. The AVCHD 2.0 standard has been approved by Sony and Panasonic – the co-promoters of the format. The move also includes additional support for high definition 3D movies in the format. Up until now, both companies have made high-end camcorders that incorporated out-of-specification 60p video in what was otherwise an AVCHD arrangement.
