A list of specifications of the upcoming Panasonic GX2 camera has been leaked on the web, with the GX1 successor expected to show up on the market sometime this fall.
Panasonic has replaced multiple cameras this year. Three new and more important shooters have been revealed, including the GF6, G6, and the LF1. Additionally, many other Lumix cameras have been introduced for the entry-level segment. However, consumers should not turn their backs on Panasonic, as the company is preparing even more goodies for this year.
Panasonic GX1 successor coming this fall as the GX2
According to the last batch of information, the GX1 Micro Four Thirds camera will also be substituted by a new device in late August.
In all likelihood, it will be referred to as the Panasonic GX2 and it will become available on store shelves in early fall, though the price remains a mystery for the time being.
Panasonic GX2 specs leaked on the web
We should not focus on the price yet, as an inside source has revealed that the Panasonic GX2 specs will include a brand new 18-megapixel image sensor.
Moreover, the Micro Four Thirds camera will come packed with an image stabilization system, allowing photographers with shaky hands to capture better images.
The list continues with the presence of a built-in tiltable viewfinder. This VF has been spotted in a patent filed by the Japanese manufacturer in the United States, so it is fair to assume that the leaks may be accurate.
The source has also revealed that the GX2 will feature a very fast shutter speed of 1/8000. This means that Panasonic is aiming to compete against the new Olympus E-P5 camera, which can provide the same shutter speed.
Panasonic GX1 price has recently plummeted
The price of the Panasonic GX1 has already suffered a major drop. The device is available at Amazon for only $249.99, a much lower amount than the original price of $699.99.
Significant price drops are always a sign that something new is inbound and, if the rumors are correct, then we will not have too much to wait until the GX2 becomes available.
