Panasonic patent shows FourThirds DSLR

A Panasonic patent was spotted on the web recently for an unnamed Four Thirds DSLR camera. The patent reveals a camera with a live view mode in addition to at a traditional optical viewfinder. A CMOS sensor is shown in the specs, but video recording will not be supported.

The rear panel of the camera is shown to have a button to turn on or off a "handshake" vibration reduction feature. A supersonic vibration generator is present to clean the sensor and related hardware from dust and debris.

The Four Thirds standard retains a mirror arrangement and interchangeable lenses but the size of the image sensor and the camera body itself is smaller than conventional DSLR cameras.

While no price or release date information was revealed by the patent, it is possible that more information will be revealed by Panasonic at CES. [via 43Rumors]
