Panasonic has just posted to its Lumix Facebook page that “new GH series cameras are coming”. Yes, cameras. Plural. So, it looks like the rumours may have been true about seeing both a GH5 Mark II release announcement as well as a GH6 development announcement – I can’t imagine the GH6 will be launched just yet.
The cameras are to be announced during a live online event, streamed through YouTube on Tuesday, May 25th at 10am Eastern. An event has already popped up on their YouTube channel, embedded above.
The text of the Facebook post reads…
We are pleased to announce that we will present new LUMIX GH series cameras at an online launch event. The event will be held on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at 10:00am EDT.
We are committed to further enhancing the G Series lineup and performance of conventional Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and lenses to meet the continuous demands of creators who value the strong advantage that only MFT can offer.
More information will be updated in the future posts on the official @lumixusa Instagram Account until May 25, 2021.
Whether or not Panasonic will actually release any specs or solid information about the GH6 tomorrow, even if they do announce the development, remains to be seen. But with multiple GH cameras being announced, I can’t imagine that the GH6 won’t be amongst them.
Teasers are expected to be posted between now and then to the Lumix USA Instagram account.
