Leaked Photos of the Panasonic GF3

Observant Micro-Four Thirds fans recently spotted a strange looking camera in a promo video on YouTube (which was quickly taken down). The camera is most likely Panasonic’s new Lumix GF3, a camera that’s expected to be officially unveiled on June 13th. Its rumored to pack the same 16 megapixel sensor as the G3, not have a hot shoe, and to have a touchscreen-based interface. The company also seems to be taking the “large sensor in a small body” thing quite seriously — this camera is tiny!

If the small camera size isn’t that apparent in the promo video stills above, it’s probably due to the fact that the model they used is quite small herself. Check out this leaked photograph, which presumably shows an average-sized hand:

What do you think of the camera’s design?

    It would be nice if they made a wider variety of lenses.

    2nd picture – is there a viewfinder??

    Hmm… so… large lcd display on back, no “viewfinder”. With no hot shoe and no sync port… *sigh* looks like a pop up flash right above the lens…

    Why is she holding the camera to her face if there is no viewfinder???

    Well….it’s official. And it’s just like the leaked shots. Watch out for previews popping up here and there.
