Panasonic claims “record preorders of new Panasonic S cameras and lenses”

Personal View talked with Panasonic and reported this:

Right before start of new financial year Panasonic Imaging Division director Yosuke Yamane San during meeting with Panasonic Lumix ambassadors told about record preorders of new Panasonic cameras and lenses. Unfortunately, he noted, he can’t disclose numbers, but they almost reached sales of one undisclosed m43 camera during June 2011 weekend, but he also added that numbers will match if we will count only deep night time during mentioned 2011 period.

Yamane San also thanked all Lumix Ambassadors and especially UK Ambassadors for playing key role in such big rise of compact and full frame cameras produced by Panasonic, for proposing really unique features like paid V-Log codes and video modes and for good private suggestions on how to kill any independent m43 cameras communities. Due to such huge success Panasonic will stop providing free bodies and lenses and instead will be charging 100% premium for all members of Ambassadors program, as it’ll allow whole program to reach levels typical only for devoted Apple fans.
