Panasonic G4K to be announced on Friday (Feb 7). First specs leaked.

On Friday (Feb 7) at 5-6am London time Panasonic will announce their first Micro Four Thirds 4K camera. This is basically a GH3 with optimized sensor for 4K recording. This means it has a faster processor, better heating dispersion and same still iamge quality. Some specs already leaked ahead of the announcement:

– New 16 Megapixel sensor optimized for 4K recording
– 2,36 million dot OLED EVF
– 200Mps and ALL-I intra mode recording (4K)
– Price less than $2,000 (final price to be determined). – G4K has focus peaking
– There is an attachable XLR adapter
– H264 codec all intra that give 422 color all intra in 100 mbps. To record this you will need to buy the new P2 Micro card in SD shape made by Panasonic (see image on top)
– it will be switch-able from 4K and 1080P with various frame rates (can shoot 120fps at 1080P for example)

So after the 3D hype we will now enter the 4k hype. Will 4K succeed or fail just like 3D did?
