I think they'll be keeping theyre own brand names but sharing the technology - such as 4/3 camera bodies with the OIS, etc. My hunch is that Panasonic may keep the Lumix brand name for the digicams.

Harj...

Didn't I read something here (a post) where Matsushita/Panasonic had a CCD in design that reduced interference between pixels, thereby drastically reducing noise. Think it was a press release. I assume, if true, they would apply this technology to the 3/4 system...

You know what else I question? Higher-end digital camcorders have had 3-CCD sensors for some five years at least. One CCD for red, one for green, and one for blue...

I question if this is the next technology to be incorporated... individual CCDs. I'm not an engineer, perhaps there's a reason why 3 CCDs are relevant toward digicams only... Or, it's a case of well-planned obsolescence.

Yep there was a post a while back here on a new CCD design from panasonic. I found this on it:

http://www.dcviews.com/press/Panasonic-MOS-20.htm

Haven't a clue on the 3CCDs - I'm sure the likes of panasonic and Sony would have thought about theyre use in digicams, well then again may be they didn't - you may wanna go and patent that idea quick!

Cheers
