A source told us the E-M5II has the same E-M1 electronic viewfinder. So no big surprise here too. The real major new feature is the multi-shot sensor shift tech. let’s hope this will makes us “WOW” when we will know exactly how this works…

Specs known so far:
Same E-M5 16MP sensor
Same E-M1 electornic viewfinder.
Update processor (improves slightly the IQ)
No PDAF
New sensor shift shooting that allows to combine 8 pictures in one to create a 40 Megapixel image
Improved 5 axis stabilization
It does have clean hdmi-out
all common frame rates and video optimized af-algorithm.
50Mb/s all 1080p (no 4K recording)

Juha:This is a little Shortfilm i shot for Greenpeace last year – which i wanted to share with you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfagSc-9PAU. The entire movie was shot on a Gh4 in 1080p, 25 fps and 200mbps with the
12-35 2.8. Especially at the beginning of the movie, was it very early in the morning and very dark, the first scenes where shot with ISO 6400 and 3200th. Later when it got brighter had to use a Vari ND filter to keep the Lens at a decent stop. For the sound i used a Sennheiser EW 112 G3 -P with Lavalier Microphone dierekt recorded incamera. The Film was edited in Premiere Pro CS6.
