(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.
