When Are Most New Panasonic Cameras Released?

We couldn't see any prominent pattern in the release dates for new Panasonic cameras over the last 3 years. Last year most new Panasonic cameras were released in January, with four new Panasonic cameras released that month. 10 new Panasonic digital cameras were released in April 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new Panasonic digital camera releases. In January 2015 seven new Panasonic cameras were released making it the biggest month that year for new Panasonic camera releases.

How Fast Do Panasonic Camera Prices Drop After Release?

Panasonic cameras tend to depreciate faster than most cameras. Most cameras drop in price by 0% in the first 6 months after release. New Panasonic cameras drop in price by an average of 8% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £63 on a typical £807 new Panasonic digital camera by waiting 6 months before buying.

Manufacturer's Description

The 1-inch 20-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is larger than that on a smartphone, and usually only found in higher spec compact cameras. But because of the size, it offers outstanding low light performance with minimum noise levels even at high ISO. The CM1 produces crisp, highly dynamic images full of intricate details and accurately rendered soft focus.
