Panasonic LX100 II Leaked Images

Panasonic LX100 II camera

Panasonic LX100 II images leaked today, we have the front, back as well as the top image of the camera. Surprisingly the lens of the camera remains same. As we all know that the Panasonic LX100 camera was announced 4 years ago and even after taking four years of time span to create the successor of the camera. Panasonic done nothing with the lens ? Well let’s hope they have done a lot of work in improving the core specs of the camera which will save me from further disappointment.

Surprisingly, the top design of the camera is exactly same and nothing changed compared to the Panasonic LX100 camera.

Panasonic G90 - Affordable Panasonic GH5S Coming

According to latest rumors coming from rumor mills Panasonic G90 camera is coming with same sensor as of the Panasonic GH5S camera. Take a look at the rumored specification of the upcoming Panasonic G90 Camera.

Panasonic G90 Possible Specification

  • 10.28MP Multi Aspect Ratio MOS Sensor
  • DCI 4K60p and Full HD 1080/240p Video
  • Built-in 5 axis IS (was absent in GH5s)
  • Dual Native ISO 400 and ISO 2500
  • Dual UHS-II SD Slots; Wi-Fi & Bluetooth
  • Advanced DFD AF System

Price of the camera 1200-1300.  The source mentioned two things very clearly to rumor mill, The camera is coming with Panasonic GH5S sensor, have built-in IS and also cost $800- $1000 less than GH5s.

To maintain the low-light performance of GH5S camera Panasonic engineers kept the IS system off the camera, instead of that they used a fixed advance heat-sink unit to reduce the excess camera sensor heat (when used for a long-time) to make it more better for low-light performance.

It has become a trend now, first a company announced a pro level Camera and once the sales number are reached to a specific point they announces a affordable version of the same camera. Just like we have seen in Fuji, the announcement of Fuji X-T20 after Fuji X-T2 and the same with Sony, after 7 to 8 months from the announcement of Sony A9 we have seen the Sony A7 III camera, the same core specs with $2k less price tag.

Due to raised Mirrorless competition and after 7 months of gap, (Panasonic GH5s was announced back on Jan 2018) they somehow found the way to add a IS unit inside the GH5S body and without losing the low-light performance of the sensor. That’s really good if true, and all that for less than $ 1300.  It will sure raise competition bar to a next level.

Panasonic Working on Advance Hybrid Image Stabilization

A new Hybrid Image Stabilization patent from Panasonic surfaced over the web. That, clearly shows Panasonic is working to improve the image stabilization system. Well, Panasonic is one of the world leading mirrorless makers and they do offer Hybrid IS in most of their cameras. However, they are step behind Olympus Hybrid IS systems and with E-M1 Mark II camera which offer IS upto 6.5 Stops when used with Olympus lenses.

This is not the first time, We have also published Panasonic Dual IS patent a while ago you can check here. And as you can see below I am adding the screen shot of the patent image.

PDAF May Damage Image Quality - Panasonic

panasonic GH5 camera image

In an latest interview Panasonic said that they are not in the mood to developed PDAF Phase detect autofocus sensors for their mirrorless camera.

Take a look what Panasonic said during the interview.

When we were developing the GH4, we were discussing whether to go with phase detection AF, or hybrid AF system of contrast AF with our own DFD (depth-from- defocus) technology. We thought that by having contrast AF with DFD, we could maximize picture quality.

With phase detection AF, picture quality can be damaged

This is because with phase detection AF, picture quality can be damaged [by the phase detect pixels]. With contrast-detection AF and DFD technology, we don’t need any dedicated pixels [for autofocus] and we believe it is more precise.

Well this look quite logical to me because in the recent happening as we have already seen with the Sony A7III sensor, due to extensive fabrication of phase detect autofocus pixels above the sensor there are some time when we see some vertical or horizontal banding above the image. It is not quite often but when there is a strong backlight behind the subject the bindings become visible.

Maybe one of these reasons falling behind the idea of introducing face detect autofocus pixels inside Panasonic mirrorless cameras.

Panasonic Should Improve the AF Speed of Flagship Mirrorless

Yes, we are happy to hear that Panasonic is caring about image quality, but they should also put focus on the autofocusing is speed of their flagship mirrorless camera is specifically when we are talking about the Panasonic GH5 and Panasonic GH 5S. Take a look at the AF speed test between Panasonic G85 vs G9 vs GH5 vs GH5s

We will going to update you soon as we get any new information related to upcoming Panasonic mirrorless cameras and don’t forget that Panasonic already hinted that they are working Panasonic LX100 successor Panasonic LX200.
