Ymcinema talks about Panasonic abandoning the cinema camera lineup


Ymcinema published a new article where they talk about Panasonic abandoning the cinema camera lineup:

“If you needed any proof that the Panasonic camera division is dying, then search no more. Just watch the Panasonic CES 2022 Press Conference. That presentation takes 54 Minutes long focusing on B2B products, and only 5 Seconds dedicated to the next LUMIX (GH6?). Moreover, there’s no mentioning whatsoever regarding its cinema lineup. R.I.P Camera Division?”

They also mentioned the fact that in the whole CES presentation Panasonic talked only for 5 seconds about the upcoming GH6 camera:

CES 2022 press event: the specifications of a camera “that should not be named” “will be released before Spring arrives” (Panasonic GH6?)

In a previous article Ymcinema already reported that Panasonic could be abandoning their cinema camera lineup (VariCam and EVA1):

“The EVA1 and the flagship VariCam are defined as Panasonic’s Cinema Camera lineup. These cinema cameras have been extensively used by filmmakers, including in high-end productions (Netflix, Hollywood, etc). However, Panasonic has stopped updating the social channels, publications, and discussions regarding the EVA1 and Varicam, and that’s can be a solid indication about termination of this cinema lineup. Let’s dive into the details.”

Of course, this is not the first report/rumor about Panasonic potentially selling their camera division – see this blog post from last year:

Japanese website reports that Panasonic may also exit the camera business just like Olympus
