World’s first 8K Camera by Astro Japan

Posted by – October 3, 2013

Unfortunately it costs $300’000. But it sure looks awesome. 8K 60p video recording is only possible with this camera on this planet. Just about Japanese NHK may also have some 8K camera of some kind but they also use Astro’s technology in that. Astro is a Tokyo based advanced video device engineering company. They make the new reference designs that all other TV and Camera companies used to benchmark and test commercial products that are being launched with 4K and 8K support. Astro was also one of the first manufacturers of 4k monitors and 4k cameras. When 8k displays become avaialable Astro will release an 8k monitor. Astro does not make components. Astro uses field-programmable gate array (FPGA) rather than mass produced processors, that is to get the fastest time to market while companies then optimize processes on processors that get used in cheaper mass market products that get sold worldwide.

Brief explanation by Astro of each product featured in the second part of this video:

Panasonic Lumix GX7, sub-$1000 (without lense) compact Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless camera

Posted by – September 22, 2013

Panasonic launches their new Lumix GX7 compact Micro 4/3 Mirorrless camera with interchangeable lenses, showing it for the first time for people to try it out at IFA 2013. The Panasonic GX7 has classical retro-like analogue designs in silver and black styles and features modern cutting edge technology. The camera supports the latest new Panasonic lenses and also supports the usage of older lenses with adapters. The small size of the camera doesn’t prevent it from offering better image quality even than the Panasonic GH3 (which is the camera I use since January of this year). The quality offered by the GX7 is one of the best of any camera on the market today. Panasonic has developed a whole new sensor. The retail Price is about 1000 Euros in Europe and about $1000 in the USA. The GX7 offers basic video recording features similar to the GH3 but is not designed with that functionality in mind (does not support mini-jack audio input for example). Panasonic’s Lumix cameras are designed and manufactured in Japan. Panasonic itself has been manufacturing cameras for years often for other brand names. Panasonic also made cameras before they introduced the Lumix brand name in 2008. How soon for Panasonic’s consumer 4K cameras? Will there be a sub-$2000 Lumix GH4 with 4K support next year?
