Panasonic is rumored to announce a new high-end mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds image sensor that will be capable of recording 4K videos sometime in 2014.
Moreover, the Panasonic GM1 has recently been introduced as the smallest and lightest MFT system ever alongside the 12-32mm pancake zoom lens.
Nevertheless, this is not the end of it, as Panasonic is planning to release even more amazing goodies for this format. According to inside sources, the Japanese company is working on an MFT shooter with 4K video recording capabilities.
New high-end Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera to record 4K videos
There are a lot of photographers who have adopted the Micro Four Thirds format. This system offers some of the best-looking cameras, but it is also graced by amazingly-featured devices.
It seems like things are about to get even better, as a new Panasonic camera is rumored to be capable of recording videos at 4K resolution.
As Nikon does not seem to bother with video capabilities, Panasonic has decided to head in the opposite direction. The FX and DX camera-lens manufacturer is believed to launch a full frame DSLR without any video-centric abilities in the coming weeks.
Panasonic to introduce and launch 4K-ready MFT camera in 2014
The new high-end Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera will be announced and released sometime in 2014. It appears that the camera will be placed higher than the GH3, but there is absolutely no chance that it will act as a GH3 replacement, instead becoming the flagship model of the “GH” series, sources say.
Furthermore, it is said that the price of the upcoming GH shooter will be significantly higher than that of the GH3, which currently stands at $998 at Amazon, down from $1,299.99.
Japanese maker aims to bring professional photographers closer to MFT format
For the time being, the remainder of the specifications remains unknown to us. However, a lot more intel should be gathered in the near future.
One thing is clear: Panasonic is investing heavily on becoming more appealing to professionals and the new Leica lenses will give a helping hand with that.
The next year is already pretty exciting, but now it goes beyond exhilarating levels.
