Paansonic is working on a new GF-series digital compact camera. The company registered a new Panasonic GF8 model on the website of a Chinese agency.
We can say the Panasonic GF8 Micro Four Thirds camera will be come packed with built-in Wi-Fi as usually this kind of registration refers to. This registration also means that the upcoming Panasonic GF8 camera could be announced within the 1-2 months.
The mirrorless shooter is expected to be announced by the end of February probably at the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2016 event which will start on February 25, 2016 in Japan.
Panasonic GF8 Camera Coming Soon, Registered in China
Last year back in early 2015, the Company introduced the DMC-GF7 model which is a retro-styled Micro Four Thirds camera with a 180-degree upward-tilting screen ready for selfies.
The Panasonic Lumix GF7 is a lightweight camera featuring a tiltable 3” touchscreen, a 16-megapixel Four Thirds sensor, Full HD video recording capability and built-in Wi-Fi.
For the upcoming Panasonic GF8 camera we can expect the same features as well as 4K video recording feature added. A major move from the company would be to add the 20-Megapixel image sensor found in the GX8 camera.
The Lumix GF7 is currently selling for $599 with the 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 collapsible kit zoom. Stay tuned for more information.
