Back at Photokina Olympus displayed their “squarish” Lens-Camera prototypes. But at the recent Engadget Fes 2014 held at Arts Chiyoda 3331 in Tokyo they displayed a more advanced rounded and very Sony QX alike version. Our reader Alvin (Thanks!) shared those pictures and added some info:
Don’t know much about the specs but it has:
Open SDK for development
Shutter Button on top
Three tripod mounting locations (custom accessories?)
it’s part of the new Olympus Hack & Make program.
The specs are listed ont he Olympus site and are:
– Android ios
– 16 megapixel sensor. No info if it’s E-M1 (with PDAF) or E-M5 (without PDAF) alike.
– Connected by WiFi
– takes both stills and videos
– Optical / digital zoom, configurable for various shooting parameters
