Panasonic’s Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) expertise is already well established, but a leaked image has revealed the manufacturer’s plans for a 12Mp retro-style MFT camera to take on Olympus’ EP1.

Panasonic's GF1 uses Micro Four-Thirds technology and has 12.1Mp

While Panasonic’s first two MFT efforts – the G1 and GH1 – looked just like existing Digital SLRs, albeit with smaller bodies, the firm’s latest effort, the GF1, is a more slimline affair.

The image - rumoured by various online sources to have originated on an internal Panasonic document - reveals that the GF1 supports interchangeable lenses and features a hot shoe. It also appears to include an integrated pop-up flash.

The GF1 also packs in a 12.1Mp CMOS sensor, a rear-mounted 3in screen and the ability to capture 720p video.

A possible launch date or price hasn’t been revealed, yet.
