Panasonic GX1 Video Test Footage

Sample movie filmed handheld with the Panasonic Lumix GX1 using its 14-42mm Power Zoom kit lens and the best quality 1080/50i AVCHD movie setting. My sample came from a PAL region, hence the 50i frame rate.

This video is part of my Panasonic Lumix GX1 preview at Camera Labs:

The GH2 is the first interchangeable-lens compact (ILC) to achieve an Excellent overall image quality in our tests—no mean feat given that it uses a Micro Four Thirds sensor that’s about 40 percent smaller in area than the APS-C sensors found in cameras it outperformed. The touchscreen interface is one of the best we’ve used, but if you hate touchscreens, just turn it off and use the many dedicated buttons and well-organized, customizable menus.

(RUMOR): Bad News! New Panasonic 12-35mm might only be F2.8 not F2

Source:M43 Rumors

M43 Rumors is reporting on a rumor about the upcoming Panasonic 12-35mm X zoom lens. There was big hope from video and still users that it would be a constant aperture lens at F2. The extra stop between F2 and F2.8 is more of less the difference in depth of field between m4/3 and APS-C. A high quality Panasonic 12-35mm F2 lens with OIS would make the platform more attractive. Lets hope that this is just a rumor and that Panasonic gives us that extra stop.

M43 Rumors is confirming that the Panasonic GX1 will have a 16 megapixel sensor.

Of course every rumor is questionable, and so are mine. But there are some websites saying the GX1 will have a 12 Megapixel sensor. And many readers contacted me to ask me if that is true. I am writing this post to answer you all and to confirm you again that my sources are telling me that it has a 16 Megapixel sensor. And I am 99,999% sure I am right :)

Anyway, it doesn’t matter that much now. The GX1 will be announced on Tuesday 8 November at 6-7am London time. Be sure to be online at 43rumors! I will update you with all news and reviews. And I want to remind you that we now have a new Facebook fanpage (Click here) you should join!

Panasonic GX1 leaked pictures + new EVF specs! November 8th release date.

Anyway, for now we know that the camera will be announced on November 8 in Japan. It will come along a new 1.44k dot external viewfinder (tiltable). It has a 16 Megapixel sensor, 12.800 ISO and a 460k LCD screen (non tiltable). It will have a new processing engine no more JPEG motion recording and be slightly smaller than the GF1.

I would love to see some video specs! I hope that Panasonic will at least give the Panasonic GX1 24p. The 1.44k EVF sounds excellent but we will wait and see. I am seriously hoping that the upcoming GH3 will also be featuring a much more high resolution EVF.
