The big guns like the GH5 and the E-M1II did steal the show today. But let’s not forget there are plenty of other new products that got announced and that are available for preorder. Note that GetOlympus links also do show image samples and plenty of details about the new products:
25% higher resolution than the predecessor model
TruePic VIII Image Processor which is 3.5 times faster than previous TruePic processors
121 cross-type AF on-sensor phase detection points
4K recording at 24fps up to 237 Mbps
1.48x (35mm equivalent) high-magnification EVF
60 frames per second in AF and AE lock, and up to 18 frames per second with continuous AF and AE tracking.
50 Megapixel High Res Shot Mode
dual memory card slots
improved battery capacity of 37 percent from its predecessor model.
weathersealed to be dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof (down to 14°F / -10°C)
The camera will be released in early 2017. Full press release can be read on that 43rumors post. This is the GH4 teaser video. Short video of the GH5 preproduction camera on stage at Photokina. GH5 vs GH4 by Parkcameras.
The camera records records 4:2:2 internallly but only in 8bit when you have 4K60fps and in higher 10bit when you record 4k30fps. The 6K photo feature is quite strange, it probably records a stream of 6000×3000 images…so 6K is not really the proper deifnition but more of a “marketing-trick”. It’s unclear if the camera records 4K with a small crop or with no crop and downsampling.
