Here Come the Next Round of Panasonic Micro Four Thirds Cameras

Panasonic G2 Micro Four Thirds Camera

The world of Micro Four Thirds is a busy one. On the heels of Olympus announcing its Olympus PEN E-PL1, Panasonic unveils two new cameras: the high end Panasonic LUMIX G2, with its 3" 460,000-dot high-resolution LCD touch screen, and the more affordable Panasonic LUMIX G10 that features a 202,000-dot Live View Finder.

Both cameras stick with the standard 12 MP resolution, but the G2 gets a processor upgrade, using the new Venus Engine HD II. We don't have pricing or release dates yet, however, Panasonic will give us a 30-day heads up for both cost and availability. My guess is that it won't be too far down the road.

You might also want to note that this week's TDS podcast is on the Micro Four Thirds system. That show will be released Tuesday morning, March 9, 2010.
