Panasonic is due to announce a new cine camera soon, according to the latest rumors. Apparently, this new cinema camera will be called the Panasonic Lumix BGH1 and will come with a 10.28 million effective pixels Micro Four Third sensor and an accompanying Micro Four Thirds mount, which will mean users should be able to use their old Panasonic lenses.

The Panasonic Lumix BGH1 is an interestingly similar name to the acclaimed mirrorless camera Panasonic Lumix GH5s, which could perhaps denote some similarities between the two cameras. However, it doesn’t seem that this cine camera will be considered an official update to the GH5 line.
As reported by 43 Rumors, this upcoming Panasonic cine camera will also feature dual native ISO and a double SD card slot. It will also feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and will have an optional 11,800mAh VBR battery as well.
The Panasonic Lumix BGH1 will weigh 545g body only and will have the approximate dimensions of 93 x 93 x 78mm. There don’t seem to be any leaked images as of yet, so we’ll have to wait to see what exactly this new Panasonic cine camera looks like.
