(FT3) New source insists: E-M1 will get 4K and discloses more details….

UPDATE: I reapeat it hard and loud. The info comes via new source. For now trusted sources said they didn’t hear  anything about any E-M1 4K firmware update.

Well, sometimes it happens that I get conflicting reports. While a trusted source said he didn’t hear about a possible 4K upgrade of the E-M1 the new source I am in touch with claims the exact opposite. The reason why I still consider the new source worth of my consideration is that I know with 100% certainty that he comes from the high end video world. So he is actually not anonymous to me :)

It’s not my intention to confuse you but this is a rumor site after all and what fun would it be without doubts, hopes and tension? After my post from yesterday that new source said to have more info to share. He said the firmware update for the E-M1 will be released next week and have those features:

- Unlocked 4K recording (over 100mb/s in simple HD)
- Different frame recording mode including 24p/25p/50p/60p
- High speed recording frame FHD/HD (120p/240p) – Slow motion
- Motion Film
- Kinda of Cinema Grading Features (similar to Slog A7s and the one on the GH4)
- Like on the 4K recording (higher bitrate)

About the photo part. I don’t know exactly the name of this feature, but this feature will let you take picture without pressing any button on the camera when the sensor detect a movement, the camera will take many picture of it. Also another function about doubling a picture (picture over another picture)

Like I said, take it with a grain of salt. I hope other sources can help me out on that matter. And if not well…in one week we will know the truth for sure :)

(FT5) Trusted source: Yes E-M1 firmware is coming but doesn’t add 4K video.

At last one of my long time trusted sources confirmed Olympus will launch a major E-M1 firmware update soon but he said that as long as he knows they will NOT add 4K video recording.

P.S.: I am actually surprised the previous new source was wrong on that rumor because I know he is a highly regarded man from the video world. Let’s see who is right but I will trust…trusted old time sources always more than new ones :)

(FT5) First image of the new Olympus E-PL7!

This is the first image of the soon to be announced Olympus E-PL7! As you know this has the same Olympus E-M10 specs but comes without the integrated viewfinder. It looks like it’s made of a very high quality. And it’s likely to be the only new PEN coming this year. Let’s see if this will help Olympus to revive the PEN sales…

(FT3) This is the amazing list of new features coming with the next E-M1 firmware upgrade?

An anonymous source unveiled the content of the new Olympus E-M1 firmware. This is his message:

Olympus OMD E-M1:
Silver version is coming.
It will include the new firmware that will be also available for the Black version.

Firmware update:
4K Recording (IS compatible)
High Speed and Slow motion Mode (240p or 120p)
New Codec with different recording mode (24p,25p,30p,60p)
Motion Film (I don’t know what it is exactly but it has something to do with a freeze picture functionality and choose to move what you want on the picture).
They didn’t confirm all yet but about a similar S-log mode than the Sony one
but they didn’t talk about it and how it would help grading for the cinema industry.
And others stuff that i didn’t have time to check yet.

I saw the 4K 24p and 30p mode, they was also other 4K mode but it was already the end of the Beta test. For sure this new update firmware doesn’t add anything, Olympus confirm 2 times that it was already there but not ready to be release because they needed to fix few issues. They add also new functionality for the pictures mode but i was not interested, only the video part.
It’s possible that they release the new firmware by the end of this month.

If true this would make current E-M1 owners extremely happy and sales of the E-M1 will increase for certain!

(FT5) Yep, Silver E-M1 and huge firmware update coming!

The official Olympus launch event will start on August 30.

I keep receiving confirmation from more and more sources that Olympus will indeed launch a new Silver E-M1 edition. And more important a quite HUGE(!) firmware update with many improvements and new features.

I have no reliable info about the kind of fw updates but an anonymous source once told me there is something “4k” related. But I am skeptical this will happen..and if it happens I suspect it’s a sort of “low-quality” 4K.
