Light field camera coming from Panasonic

Panasonic-light-field-camerWe have the latest confirmation via Sankeibiz about Panasonic that it has completely developed a new light field camera with interchangeable lenses which work similar to Lytro light field camera.

The main advantage of such type of camera allows the users to focus after they take the picture. It is totally different from your DSLR, Mirrorless or Compact cam you are using.

It is supported by the recent addition of Creative mode through which the camera does a little smoothly processing .This mode allows the users to refocus its lens closer than in Everyday mode and hence the users get the quality images.

There is no information about the type of mount will be used however we expect that it will use the same 4/3 mount. Panasonic will announce it in the next year, 2016.

the Japanese newspaper is talking about Large-scale integration (LSI) chip, LSI chip is known as image processor in camera, the traditional LSI chip is made by integrating 1000 or more of transistors on a single silicon semiconductor microchip…now world has changed … the old LSI technology is replaced by very large-scale integration (VLSI) and ultra large-scale integration (ULSI) technologies, Panasonic may have adopted ultra large-scale integration (ULSI) technologies to build the new image processing engine to support 8k.

Panasonic-FZ300-imageAccording to latest wired rumors coming above the surface, the to be announced Panasonic FZ300 is rumored to feature a 4/3 sensor inside a 16X optical Zoom lens, take a look at the rumored specification

Take a look at the rumored specification of the Panasonic FZ300 camera

F1.8 – F4
24-400 leica lens
FZ 1000 MKII (or FZ300) will be released in September.

The rumored specification also says the camera will have F1.8 aperture up to 30mm, and at 200mm F 2.8, that also clearly indicated that upto 8X optical zoom you have F2.8 aperture, that really a unbelievable specification.

If the rumor is true than the Panasonic FZ300 will sure take down the sales graph of big sensor compacts and APS-C or 4/3 mirrorless  camera… since when you have a big 4/3 sensor compact camera with a ultra bright compact lens why you will look for a second option, The camera wide aperture range clearly indicates that it ill become a prefect tool for portrait shooters too.
