According to tipsters, patents, and a couple of Japanese websites, it looks like Canon is set to release their first Micro Four-Thirds camera very soon. For now, all that remains are the discovery of the full specs and what the camera actually looks like.
Panasonic just unveiled a new mid-level Micro Four Third camera, the Lumix G DMC-G5. It’s the successor to the popular G3 and packs some cool new features. These kinds of cameras take impressive photos, while being easier to lug around than a full-sized DSLR.
After the Panasonic Lumix GX1 was spotted in Taiwan last week, Panasonic finally unveiled the full Monty about this camera. This micro four-thirds camera is the successor to the GF1, which was raved about by professional and amateur photographers. It basically takes kick-ass photos, in a very small and compact package, meaning that you can take great pics without having to lug around a heavy DSLR.
This is an awesome review, makes me want to get a GF1 and use it as an everyday point-and-shoot. The photos it takes are also pretty darn good. It’s a 12.1 MP micro 4/3 camera. It also shoots HD video. In Taiwan, the body only costs $680 while with the 14-45mm lens or the 20mm pancake lens, it costs $772. Here’s DPreview’s review on the camera.
