Panasonic Activelink's Power Loader Light appears on video for the first time

Robotic exoskeletons that artificially augment puny human muscles have been in development for years, but we're yet to see any of them really take off. Panasonic is still betting on its own solution, the Power Loader Light (yes, named after the one seen in the sci-fi film Aliens), which is being developed by Activelink, one of its subsidiaries. The company has made some modifications since its initial appearance in 2010 and is showing off how it works on video for the first time.  Read More

These include an upgraded sensor and new image processor, 60p video capture and a maximum bit rate of 72 Mbps, a weather-sealed body, plus an OLED viewfinder and rear panel double act.  Read More

Panasonic and NHK's 145-inch 8K display

I see your 84-inch 4K TV, and raise you one 145-inch 8K Super Hi-Vision monster of a display.

Panasonic has taken the wraps of its new LUMIX DMC-GF5 Micro Four Thirds digital camera

There has been quite a bit of pre-announcement discussion about what kind of features might be added to Panasonic's latest member of its LUMIX G Series of Micro Four Thirds digital cameras. As it transpired, the new LUMIX DMC-GF5 interchangeable lens camera was not the marked improvement on last year's GF3 that we'd hoped it would be. That said, it has been given a new sensor and rehashed imaging engine, an improved user interface with the opportunity to automatically optimize settings based on images snapped by professional photographers, and it will be available with a power zoom kit lens.  Read More
