While it might seem a little bit strange to be looking for 8K Panasonic Lumix news when we know that they already have a couple of high tech and high quality cameras scheduled for release in 2019.
However, a recent interview with Mathilde Lécuyer who is actually the manager of the France wing of Panasonic has shed some light on their plans for an 8K camera. While many people are just getting 4K cameras, 4K TV’s, 4K game consoles and so on. The fact of the matter is those who are on the cutting edge of technology are looking towards the next step which is 8K.
Going full frame is something that Panasonic has been dabbling with for quite some time. So hearing this 8K Panasonic Lumix news is not all that surprising. They have said that getting 8K video on a Micro Four Third camera is very, very tricky. It sounds like it would be more hassle than it was worth so I can see why they have decided not to do this for the 8K camera that they are currently planning.
Going Full Frame is the only way to go and it certainly looks like that Panasonic is going to have at least on 8K full frame camera on the market at some point in 2019. What is interesting though is that Panasonic is not going all in with 8K full frame cameras. Of course, they still have their offerings for 2019 to come, but they have also said that they are going to continue making Micro Four Third cameras.
This means that they will have cameras at all points of the pricing spectrum as well as the quality spectrum on the market. I would think that this 8K Panasonic Lumix news getting leaked so early in 2019 is not something that some of the other bigwigs at Panasonic will be happy with.
We know that Panasonic has two full frame cameras that are going to be out sooner than later. The news that they are working on an 8K full frame camera may make some people decide to just stick with what they have and not purchase a new camera in 2019. If you think about it this could be the way to go. If you are interested in an 8K camera and if you are a Panasonic fan, you might be better off not jumping in and getting one of their new full frame cameras that are coming this year.
If you drop a load of money on a new camera and then a few months later you find out that their 8K full frame camera is coming out, you are sure to have some buyer’s remorse. I would think that Panasonic will come out with an official press release trying to downplay this 8K Panasonic Lumix news sooner than later. The last thing you want is to make the cameras that are not even out yet sound obsolete!
I think the thought of an 8K full frame Panasonic camera is really cool and it is going to be very interesting to see what they come up with.
