Panasonic's dropped two new cameras on the unsuspecting public today: one, the compactDMC-3D1 that shoots 3D, and two, the DMC-GX1 which follows the micro four thirds GF1 model.
The GX1 is shaping up to more of a successor to 2009's GF1 than the GF2 and GF3 ever were, with its 16MP sensor (the GF1 had just a 12MP job); 3-inch touchscreen display and stereo microphone. It also has an ISO range of 160-12,800.
Available as a black or silver body-only kit for $US700, or with a H-FS014042 lens in mid-December ($800), or with a H-PS14042 lens in mid-January for $US950.
The compact DMX-3D1 has that novelty 3D feature as aforementioned, with its two 12MP "eyes" capable of shooting both 8MP photos and 1920x1080 60i 3D video. Turn the 3D off via the dedicated switch, and quality is of course heightened, with 2D photos shooting in full 12MP quality, and videos full HD. It'll cost $US500 from December.
