The ultra small Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera will join the company’s GX series and will feature a three-digit number as its retail name.
Panasonic is rumored to announce an ultra small Micro Four Thirds camera in the first part of 2014. The shooter will definitely not be launched by the end of this year, sources say, meaning that an earlier rumor has been accurate.
Small Panasonic camera to be a part of the GX series as of early 2014
The new information, which has been leaked on the web, reveals the series and the name format of the upcoming small Panasonic camera. It is said that it will enter the GX series, instead of GF or G, like previously thought.
Panasonic new GX camera will have a three-digit number as its name, but the “###” remains unknown. Since there are several months left until its official launch event, MFT fans should be patient as more specs and details will be leaked closer to the announcement.
Panasonic GX7 rumored to be introduced in late August
Meanwhile, the Panasonic GX7 has once again been confirmed to make an appearance towards the end of August. It will go on sale sometime in September and it will be marketed as the GX1 replacement.
It will be aimed at professional photographers and it will come packed with optical image stabilization system, as well as a built-in electronic viewfinder. The EVF is said to be tiltable, which is quite a nice touch.
Additionally, the GX7 will sport a new 18-megapixel sensor and a 1/8000th of a second maximum shutter speed. However, these are all the device’s rumored specs for now.
GX for professionals, GF and G for entry-level users
Sources familiar with the matter are claiming that both the GF and G series will be targeted at entry-level users, in order to leave the GX shooters into the hands of advanced photographers.
Although it has been a while since the GF6 and G6 have been announced, the two Micro Four Thirds cameras have not been released, yet. Nevertheless, they will begin shipping across many markets around the world in the near future.
For the time being, the Panasonic G6 can be pre-ordered at Amazon and B&H for $749.99 and $749, respectively, while the GF6 is available for pre-order at Amazon and B&H for a price of $599.99 and $599, respectively.
