Panasonic jumps on 4K train with drool-worthy GH prototype | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) |

If 2013 was the year of the 'affordable' full-frame camera, 2014 is shaping up to be the year of 4K.

We've seen dirt cheap 4K monitors from Asus, Seiki, Dell and Philips, but haven't heard many new announcements from camera manufacturers... yet.

Panasonic is jumping onto the 4K train with a new prototype based on their excellent GH series.

Details are still scarce, but the spec that has us all drooling is the price: just south of $2,000.

If Panasonic manages to come in that low, they'll have the attention of the HD-DSLR world.

Engadget is also reporting further details: Video can be ouput via mini-HDMI in an uncompressed feed, while UHD can be recorded at a rate of 200 Mbps.

Another feature that grabbed our attention?

The camera will be able to snap photos while shooting 4K video.
