Panasonic officially opens the 4k battle. Sony’s answer coming soon.

Share

Today Panasonic launched the first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with 4K recording feature, the GH4 (specs at Amazon). It has a 10bit 4K output over 3G HD-SDI and records on fast SD cards at 200mbit/s. It’s certainly a well made camera but Sony is about to answer soon.

Like in one month from now Sony will release their first 4K camera. It will be A-mount although I don’t exclude there will be an E-mount 4K camera too. The image of the Sony 4K camera has been shown last year:

Expect a 4K marketing bombardment soon. And after that 8K will follow (in 1-2 years). It never ends :)
