Panasonic are in talks with Epson to provide cutting edge new display technology for the EVF in the GH3. The news comes from a recent interview with Panasonic’s Ichiro Kitao at the launch of the GF3. It was a change of tone from last year when Panasonic spoke of the GH2 as a niche camera. Now they say, it is a ‘flagship’ and ‘very important’.

Canon’s next DSLRs feature some handy video orientated features.
First the 60D – this is going to be my new favourite camera. Apparently it is ‘movie orientated’, rumoured to feature DIGIC 5 with better video processing capabilities. Bye bye moire. The screen is articulated – a feature 2nd guessed by rumours as far back as 3 months ago! Now it’s official, as these shots from CanonRumors reveal – this is no Photoshop mock up! This is the actual camera being tested right now.
As you can see it flips out to the side on a hinge, just like with the Panasonic GH1. I love this feature. On the other side of the camera a video record button is present like on the 7D, and the camera has the same handy wheel with a ‘set’ button.
Tools have become available to reverse engineer the Panasonic GH1’s firmware and to create custom camera features, much like the Magic Lantern hack for the 5D Mark II.
