The Panasonic Lumix GX8 Micro Four Thirds camera is once again rumored to be unveiled during the later stages of the third quarter of 2015, trusted sources leaving no chances for an earlier announcement.
Panasonic was believed to replace the Lumix GX7 with the Lumix GX8 at the beginning of 2015. As time passed by, more and more gossip talks have revealed that the mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor will be introduced in August or September 2015.
Although there are people praying for the device to show up within the next couple of months, they will have to put an end to their hopes as Panasonic has set the Lumix GX8 launch event for sometime in late August or early September, as already suggested.
Panasonic GX8 launch date scheduled to take place in Q3 2015
It is hard to find out that the product you want or need to purchase is not coming out as soon as you hoped. However, the Panasonic GX8 launch date is scheduled to take place during the latter part of the third quarter of the year and there is nothing potential buyers can do about it.
More reliable sources have come out to say that the mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor will not be rushed by the Japanese company. The shooter will be revealed in Q3 2015, but it is unclear whether it will be released in this timeframe or not.
If the Lumix GX8 becomes official in late August, then it might be released by the end of September. However, if its announcement event occurs in early September, then its release date may slip into October, which is part of Q4 2015.
Panasonic to put 4K video and WiFi capabilities into the Lumix GX8
The Lumix GX8 is real, just like the G7 and GF7, which were unveiled by Panasonic in 2015. This mirrorless camera has been registered on the Wi-Fi Alliance website. This also means that it will come packed with built-in WiFi technology.
On the other hand, the rumor mill says that its image sensor will be new, but it will still have a 16-megapixel count. The size will not be altered, so it will be a Micro Four Thirds sensor.
An important upgrade over the Lumix GX7 will consist of 4K video recording capabilities. The remainder of the specs list will show up online as we get closer to the Panasonic GX8 launch date therefore do not forget to keep an eye on our website!
