Image on top. The “Full Frame” OM-1 film camera.
Highly trusted sources confirmed that Olympus will launch an “exciting” new OMD camera in January! The camera will be displayed at the CP+ show in Japaan in mid February. I have no specs yet but the sources told me that this isn’t an evolution of a current camera. It’s something VERY(!) different. Sounds damn good to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe they will (again) take inspiration form the past and bring some digital version of past OM cameras? Which one would you like most? OMD camera history:
M-1, OM-1, OM-1 MD, OM-1N, OM-2, OM-2N, OM-2S/SP, OM-3, OM-3Ti, OM-4, OM-4T/Ti black and chrome, OM-10, OM-20 (OM-G), OM-30(OM-F), OM-40 (OM-PC), OM-77AF (OM-707), OM-88 (OM-101), OM-2000.
As usual stay tuned on 43rumors to get more details soon!
P.S.: I don’t know if Olympus will also announce the digital Olympus Trip 35 camera (here on eBay) on the same event…
