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.
