First sample videos will be uploaded here - [url="https://vimeo.com/groups/gh3"]https://vimeo.com/groups/gh3[/url]

The GH3 will be revealed on Monday September 17th at a Panasonic press conference in Cologne, home of this year's Photokina 2012. EOSHD will be there when the show opens on Tuesday to get all the juicy hands-on details.

I agree with hoodlum; it's clearly 4:3 instead of the 3:2 of the GH2. That would be a major bummer if multi-aspect is gone :(. I guess it's still possible that's it's an oversize 4:3 sensor but one that's wide enough for the 16:9 crop to use the full 4/3 image circle.

Is it possible that the GH3 doesn't have a multi-aspect ratio sensor? That's one of the BIG feats of the GH2, did Panasonic give up on that because they found that Sony's sensor is better?

They could have asked for a multi-aspect sensor but maybe they didn't have the time. If I remember well the image for the 16:9 in the GH2 was something like 1.86x crop factor, wasn't it?

If it's a Sony's sensor, would it be the same as the OM-D E-M5? If Panasonic could just have an engine as good as Olympus...

The E-M5 sensor would make sense in some ways, but not in others. Makes sense in that Panasonic and Olympus together could probably get a lower price due to the increased volume. Doesn't make sense in that Olympus only seems to be reading the sensor at 30fps in video mode; if it was really capable of 60fps, you'd think they'd have at least put in 720p @ 60fps. Also the E-M5 has a base ISO of 200, while the GH2 will supposedly start at 100. I suppose ISO 100 could be a digital overexpose-and-pull, which would be yet another bummer.

I thought it was the imaging chip that dictates the frame rate and not the actual sensor?
