4K resolution has been around for a while, and the rumors said many digital imaging companies (Panasonic, Sony, Canon) are working on the 8K cameras.
The Japanese site Nikkan reports that Panasonic will release a new 6K capable interchangeable lens mirrorless camera during 2016 financial year (goes til March 31, 2017). And this new camera is expected to be Panasonic GH5.
And today according to a rumor from PhotoRumors, Panasonic will announce a new 8K camera this fall, most likely at Photokina 2016 in September.
This is just a rumor, not confirmed by trusted sources – we know that Panasonic was initially to announce the 8K camera in 2020, then pushed to 2018. So it is highly likely that we will see a prototype or a development announcement in September.
