    single dial. deal breaker

    • daniel

      there are ridges on the ring around the shutter, possibly a second command dial?

      • Marvin8

        Not a chance. No markings whatsoever.

          The rear dial does not have markings, either. Cross your fingers! :-)

        • Carlos Peteira

          It’s linked to lcd dial menu….

    • Renato S.

      Single dial? It sure looks like it, but I’d wait the announcement to understand it better. This would be a major fail for Panasonic, to attend every other request but using a single dial?

      The thing on top looks like a dial, but the front view shows no markings, which we would expect of a dial, so it’s probably not.

      This just let us guessing what’s up, it’s hard to understand why Panasonic would not include the second dial.

      • popeyoni

        Most dials have no markings. Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony and yes, Panasonic, make lots of cameras without markings on the dials. … unless you mean texture. And it does have a texture on top as can be seen in the top view.

    • Drazen B.

      Not quite. The second dial is around the shutter button as others pointed out already. It’s just that it isn’t ‘linked’ to the physical markings but the LCD menu settings. It’s nothing new, other digivams have it as well.

      • CRB

        Thats just a bad design…both dials…one close to the on/off button and thhe other around the shutter…

  • http://leicaapostate.com/ J Shin

    Great scoop! Very close to having everything, and I like the compact styling.

    I’m also unenthused about the single dial, but I did promise to at least try it. People who have other Panasonics seem to like the push-to-change-mode feature. I do like it that all the controls are on one side.

  • markz

    Nice, appearance and feature wise but not liking the rumoured price.
    I usually shoot my GF1 in aperture mode witht he M4/3 lenses or manual with legacy lenses so single dial is not a deal killer for me.
    I guess I’ll want to compare this head to head with the OM and the G6 before putting my money down

  • Bronica

    Two Dials: one o the back of the camera. And one around the shutter-release button.

    • fjfjjj

      Yes, notice the knurling on the ring around the release, and how it protrudes slightly beyond the edge of the top plate. Cool.

  • Gex

    How many people will be switching off the camera when turning the rear dial…?

    • Drazen B.

      That sure looks like an oversight from the design point of view, possibly a flaw. We shall see.

      • Marvin8

        And a BAD design flaw at that. Hard to believe they could have screwed this up so badly. Will wait to see…..

    • markz

      hopefully it will be a double action – something like a lift and shift or push and shift action rather than a straight shift lever from left to right/right to left….. hopefully

      • markz

        also,looking at the top profile image – it’s recessed quite a bit back (well … actually forward front to back of camera) compared to the rear control dial so that should lessen the chance of accidental movement

  • Emanuele

    I buy this camera, sure.

  • Khaled AL

    looks like a good one but where’s the “GX2-GX6″ gone?

    • AAA

      it looks like nex7. Thats why they named it gx7

  • Xhris

    Panasonic’s ‘push dial’ which has been around since at least the GF1, largely negates the need for a secondary dial. In AE mode a push toggles exposure compensation and in manual mode it cycles between shutter and aperture. Whilst a secondary dial would be nice I can’t see that not having one would be a ‘deal breaker’ if Panasonic were to continue with the dual function dial.

    I imagine they’ve also tested whether or not the on/off switch would be inadvertently triggered by using the dial – a simple matter to try for yourself in a shop or even to return as ‘unfit for purpose’ if you were to be eager enough to buy unseen.

    I sometimes wonder if the internet is used by those who like to find a reason to complain.

  • http://leicaapostate.com/ J Shin

    I take it all back. 43Rumors just confirmed two dials!!!!!

  • MB

    What single dial?
    There are actually 3 dials, PSAM…, one rear and a smaller one around the shutter release and it seams they are all placed very handy.
    What more do you want really?

  • Pat Mann

    This looks like a very nice combination of features in a very practical, usable layout. Wide range of lenses available. Nikon? Canon? Anybody paying attention?
