The next Micro Four Thirds camera – the Panasonic GF-1?

Written by Gary on August 7th, 2009

It seems Panasonic MAY be announcing a new Micro Four Thirds camera in Sept 2009 which has very similar dimensions as the very popular Olympus E-P1.

Rumoured features of the GF-1:

  • no EVF but one can be added
  • popup flash
  • dedicated movie record button
  • HDMI output
  • AVCHD video capture but only at 1280x720p – although this is probably all that most people really need
  • mono mic on top of the camera
  • no image stabilisation in the camera
  • presumably will have built-in lens correction processing (E-P1 does not have this)

New Panasonic Lumix lenses for Micro Four Thirds:

  • Lumix 20mm f/1.7 pancake
  • Lumix 45mm f/2.8 macro
