Rumor: Panasonic Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Could be in the Works

It’s the year of the full frame mirrorless camera! Nikon, Canon both announced their first full frame mirrorless shooters this year; now Panasonic could be next!

There are rumors surfacing from 43 Rumors hinting Panasonic will be revealing a full frame mirrorless camera soon. The rumors also suggest a few of the camera’s specs. Admittedly details are uncertain, but they’re still relevant to mention. For instance, the site suggests that 4K is included in the camera with no crop, along with 10-bit 4:2:2 recording.

What are the rumors claiming?

Here’s everything that 43 Rumors claims to definitely know about the camera:

  • The company will officially announce the camera on September 25th
  • Only a prototype will be shown with no finalized specs
  • The release date will be in March 2019
  • Panasonic has designed a new sensor for the shooter
  • The camera will have “way more” than 30 megapixels

Now we move to the things that 43 Rumors are unsure about but still believe to be true. They made it clear though that the claims could be wrong:

  • The camera will use current MFT lenses through an adapter
  • It will cost about $3,000
  • There will be no sensor stabilization
  • The camera will feature two slot cards
  • 4K with no crop in FF and 10-bit 4:2:2
  • The camera’s weather-sealed
  • Olympus will not be joining the Panasonic FF system

Looking Forward

So while we may get an official announcement from Panasonic in a little over a week, according to 43 Rumors, there probably won’t be too many details about the camera.

Hopefully, Panasonic will confirm most of what 43 Rumors is saying — well, maybe not the “no sensor stabilization” part.

All we can do now is wait for September 25th and see if any of these rumors hold up.
