Panasonic Announces First Organic Sensor 8K Camera for Summer 2020 – Coming to Fujifilm X and GFX too?

Organic Sensor

Panasonic has recently announced the launch of the first 8K organic sensor camera for the 2020 Olmypic Games in Tokyo.

By putting an organic layer on top of the CMOS sensor, Panasonic promises three advantages:

  1. Wide dynamic range
    Additional 2 stops of dynamic range, from the current 14 stops to a target of 15/16 stops
  2. Global shutter
  3. Build-in Variable ND filters
    The use of conductive film allows to control the light amount coming to the sensor. You can control lights without changing aperture. You can maintain depth of field

After the Tokyo Olmypic games, Panasonic will put this sensor also into cinema, studio and consumer cameras, including the Lumix line-up. Full interview in the video below.

And Fujifilm?

Important RUMOR Update: Fujifilm’s Next Rumored Camera Could be Just Anything and Here is Why!

The Next Fuji

Yesterday we reported, that, based on the registration protocols of the wireless parts the Fujifilm camera registered under the code name FF190003, Nokishita speculated that:

This didn’t leave much space for interpretation, since, taking away entry level cameras, the only Bayer sensor cameras in the Fujifilm world are GFX cameras.

But now I have been contacted by a Japanese reader, who told me google messed up the automatic translation, and the real translation is actually:

it appears that Fujifilm is going to introduce another model. From the model number of the wireless parts, it doesn’t seem like it will be a Xacti model, so probably it’s an X-Trans or GFX camera

This changes everything, since this means the FF190003 camera…

  • is not made by Xacti (hence no entry level Fujifilm camera)
  • could be X-Trans (!!!)
  • could be GFX

But there is more!

The reader pointed out, that probably Nokishita is speculating on the basis of the inclusion of bluetooth 4.2, which is not available in lower end Fujifilm cameras, whereas even lower end Fuji cameras use wireless IEEE802.11b/g/n.

This was correct, until the Fujifilm X-A7 hit the market, which also has bluetooth 4.2.

The conclusion:

The third registered camera could be just anything, from a flagship X or GFX series camera to an entry level X or GFX camera. It could be Bayer or X Trans. It could be made by Xacti or made by Fujifilm.

As soon as I can, I will lift this mistery ;). So make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter
