  1. While not the GH6 sensor, Sony just announced a new 20mp stacked BSI sensor. We could see this in other camera bodies. https://www.sony-semicon.co.jp/products/common/pdf/IMX472-AAJK_Flyer.pdf
  2. In the past Panasonic has said that it is not accurate enough.
  3. You can certainly see from the following image that the 25-50 lens was likely designed at the same time as the 10-25. Same size, weight and filter for easy switching.
  4. 5.7k suggest it will be a 24mp sensor. I was hoping for confirmation of sensor speed readout but we don't know if the 4k/120p is cropping.
  5. Latest rumour mentions that GH6 will not be 8k and they are focusing on 4K. https://www.43rumors.com/really-looks-like-there-will-two-gh-cameras-this-year-the-new-gh5ii-and-a-future-new-gh6/
  6. A new zoom lens will be announced as well. https://www.43rumors.com/from-the-gh5ii-press-event-there-will-be-a-new-zoom-lens-too-and-gh6/ There was a press meeting today and Panasonic also published the teaser for the MAy 25th announcement. This is what I heard from the event: GH5II definitely coming soon New zoom lens (something to match the 10-25) GH6 development announcement
  7. It look like GH5ii and GH6 will be announced (maybe development for GH6) as it mentioned multiple GH cameras LUMIX Live : New GH Series Cameras are Coming We are pleased to announce that we will present new LUMIX GH series cameras at an online launch event. The event will be held on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at 10:00am EDT.
  8. Via Panasonic Instagram. It looks like multiple GH bodies could be announced. "We are pleased to announce that they will present an expanded lineup of the popular LUMIX GH series at an online launch event. The event will be held at https://www.panasonic.com/global/consumer/lumix/ on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at 14:00 UTC. . We are committed to addressing further to enhance the G Series lineup and performance of conventional Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and lenses to meet the continuous demands of creators who value the strong advantage that only MFT can offer. . More information will be updated in the future posts on the official Instagram account @lumix until May 25, 2021."
  9. An interesting rumor of a new sensor posted on Weibo. https://www.43rumors.com/sony-45mp-micro-4-3-with-quad-pixel-af/
  10. I am surprised Nikon didn’t mention this last week during CP Plus.
  11. In this Nikon interview they actually mentioned a new flagship camera is coming this year with a stacked sensor. So it looks like Sony is sharing this sensor with others now which would bode well for a new GH6. https://www.dpreview.com/interviews/9636338352/interview-nikon-a-flagship-nikon-z-series-mirrorless-camera-can-be-expected-within-the-year "A flagship Nikon Z-series mirrorless camera can be expected within the year, and is being developed with the goal of surpassing the D6. It will respond to the advanced needs of professionals. The upcoming model will debut a newly developed high-resolution stacked CMOS sensor."
  12. While nothing specific on the GH6 other than they are still considering it, Panasonic did mention a new prime and “revolutionary” zoom are coming. My guess is that the zoom would be designed for video similar to the 10-25. https://www.43rumors.com/great-news-panasonic-says-new-revolutionary-mft-zoom-and-new-mft-fast-primes-are-in-the-works-along-the-gh6/
  13. Based on information coming from OM Digital Solutions it looks like a new sensor is coming later this year in an updated E-M1X. With their renewed focus on wildlife I would think this sensor would have a faster readout like a99/a1. I would expect to see the GH6 around the same time with the same sensor. https://www.43rumors.com/qa-with-om-digital-solutions-uk-hints-a-new-high-end-e-m1xii-might-be-coming/
  14. The IMX492 would be a downgrade from the existing sensor in the GH5. We would need at least the same or a faster sensor readout speed.
  15. IBIS would become more challenging with smaller pixels. But m43 does have an advantage over FF with a smaller sensor to move around.
  16. No link. Androidlad provided this image a year ago in another thread.
  17. I would prefer this sensor that has much faster sensor readout.
  18. The 4k 120p is what caught my eye. https://www.sony.jp/ichigan/products/ILCE-1/ "4:2:2 10bit 4K 120p high frame rate video recording, all pixel full size 4K readout, approximately 15+ stop wide dynamic range"
  19. What is also amazing is that they removed the fan from the Macbook Air. So a completely passive/silent solution.
  20. The sensor has not changed although OIS has improved and lens is a bit faster. Of course processing has made a number of improvements as well.
  21. Geekbench is a much better benchmark of actual application performance and the initial scores are showing a 20% improvement. https://hothardware.com/news/iphone-12-pro-benchmark-geekbench-5-a14-bionic What this does not show is how the Neural Engine portion of the A14 chip went from 8 cores to 16 cores, improving that aspect of the iPhone 12 performance by 80%. There is much more to a smartphone's performance than just CPU and GPU benchmarks.
  22. This gives us an idea of what to look forward to with the GH6. The BGH1 is a lot actually smaller and lighter than the GH5. https://photorumors.com/2020/09/30/panasonic-dc-bgh1-mft-camera-specifications-leaked-10mp-c4k60p/ DC-BGH1 10.28 MP sensor Micro Four Thirds mount C4K60P 4:2:2 10-bit RAW video (HDMI output), C4K60P 4:2:0 10-bit (H.265 / HEVC) internal recording Dual native ISO Double SD card slot Wi-Fi / Bluetooth 11800mAh VBR battery compatible Dimensions: 93 x 93 x 78mm Weight: 545g
  23. At 8:50 of this video posted today the GH5 successor is specifically mentioned to be in development.
  24. There are 3 pages to the interview and on page 2 it mentions that the surveillance cameras would be a mid to long term new market in addition to the existing business.
