It's a rare camera that makes it to market without getting leaked, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is not one of those — as you can see from this leaked pic, it just happens to be a stunning black Micro Four Thirds shooter paired with one of the amazingly compact X-series lenses Panasonic introduced a few months back. The shots, out of Taiwan's Mobile01 forum, don't reveal much about the innards beyond a retractable flash, stereo microphones, full HD video recording and the lack of an electronic viewfinder, but rumors detailed some other possibilities a few days ago. Reportedly, it'll have a 16-megapixel sensor, a new and improved image processor, and up to 12,800 ISO. Expect to hear some official details next month, and you might as well circle November 8th on your calendar. One more pic below, and plenty more at our source link.
