New Olympus & Panasonic Four Thirds cameras (and micro)

Written by Gary on September 22nd, 2008

Panasonic have showed a prototype of a HD video capable Four Thirds Micro camera with dedicated movie button and stereo audio microphones follow up on their recently announced G1 micro camera.

Olympus have showed a prototype of a Micro Four Thirds camera which looks set to be a Canon G10 killer with a sensor ~5x in area that of a G10 (hence likely to have much better image quality) but still very compact and with the bonus of interchangeable lens capability. Please make it look a bit sexier though!

Olympus have also announced a new Four Thirds dSLR will be available in 1st quarter 2009 which will be placed between the E520 and the E3 but have the excellent AF system of the E3 with its IS capability and improved dust and weather resistance.

Exciting stuff for the Four Thirds fans like me.
