Panasonic Full Frame Camera Review Rumors
I owned the rather cool Panasonic GH5, but found the autofocus to be annoying and eventually settled on a Sony A7iii. While there are certainly aspects of the GH5 that I loved, like it’s internal stabilization and video quality, the autofocus was a deal breaker.
It seems everyone is jumping in on the mirrorless bandwagon, heck even Nikon and Canon had to design a camera line called the Nikon Z series of cameras and for Canon it’s the Canon EOS R.
One of the issues with Panasonic’s current line of mirrorless cameras is they use a micro 4:3 format instead of a full frame sensor. Meaning they aren’t Full Frame, so they end up cropping down the image because of the smaller sensor size.
On September 25th, Panasonic is rumored to announce their Full frame mirrorless camera to compete the big guns including Sony, Nikon, Fuji and Canon. If Panasonic can nail down their autofocus issues, it should be a spectacular release. If they include advices from Vloggers, it could be a huge hit.
The one thing Panasonic has going for them is they do know mirrorless cameras, being in the mirrorless business for over 10 years.
If rumors are true and Panasonic does jump into the full frame arena, look for the camera release in the first half of 2019.
