As mentioned earlier in the week, Panasonic could benefit from the torpor of summer, and more specifically from the summer heat of August to present a brand new hybrid camera that would be aimed primarily at experts looking for a device with compact dimensions. Connoisseurs will have understood, this is obviously the Lumix GX2, or who will succeed... GX1. And even if his name is not actually confirmed yet - so we're not immune to a reversal of last minute - the home of nosy Digicame managed to get the first informal specifications of the beast, specifications you will naturally be able to discover later in the article.
As usual, however, it should be noted that any rumor must necessarily be taken with the greatest prudence. If Digicame is rarely wrong so far, and if the manufacturers seem to have the greatest difficulty in keeping secret their new products, nothing says that the following information will prove to be accurate. Morality, you'd probably better equip you to think of your tweezers rumors before going further.
Also, be aware that this is not the complete data sheet GX2 you'll discover here. Not yet, at least. For the moment, only four features of the new Panasonic case would be known:
- New 18-megapixel sensor.
- Maximum shutter speed to 1/8000 second.
- Built-in image stabilizer.
- Integrated tilt viewfinder.
The most amazing thing with this noise corridor, from my point of view, it is the supposed presence of an integrated housing viewfinder. On the GX1, the only way to enjoy a sight it was to buy option dedicated accessory, an accessory that therefore not incorporated in the casing. Digicame If sources are true, then Panasonic have finally changed strategy by integrating directly to the viewfinder housing. Knowing that it is rather an expert public, or at least enthusiastic, it is fairly consistent but nonetheless it would be better not to pack too quickly.
