Panasonic is rumored, thanks to this shot spotted at China’s Xitek photography forum, to be making a micro Four Thirds camera. Point-and-shoot with interchangeable lenses: all the rage! From Gadget Lab:
It will have a 12.1 effective megapixels sensor, a three-inch, 460,000 dot screen, 720p video mode and dust removal. Size is 119mm x 71mm x 36.3mm, almost exactly the same as the Pen (120.6mm x 69.9mm x 36.4 mm). One odd thing to note is that little mini-USB shaped hole on the back, below the hotshoe? Is it for an optical add-on viewfinder? I sure hope not.
Yes, that’s a Leica lens.
