Re: More details on Panasonic G6

Hold the presses! How about the Panasonic G6, which is due to be announced next week. You might like this one....


Direct quote:

"43rumors has published some more details on the G6:

- has a 16 Megapixel sensor
- New Venus Engine
- mic input
- looks sexy and size is similar to current G5
- Same GH2 video quality.

’16MP’ sensor doesn’t really help here – it gives us no indication which sensor is being used here – is it the GH3 sensor or the existing G5 sensor?

New Venus Engine is always good – faster camera, and potentially, better noise handling hence better higher ISO performance.

Similar size as G5 is nice too – IMO, the GH3 is a bit too large for most photographers who are looking to get into M43 system.

What does it mean by ‘same GH2 video quality’? Could the G6 match all aspects of GH2′s video capability, or is it only going to match the resolution/refresh rates?

Either way, the G6 is expected to be announced by the end of next week."
