Amazing news! Olympus launches the Micro Four Thirds “Open Platform”!

Image courtesy: ePhotozine

Olympus launched a new project called “Open Platform“. There is also a website for that here: http://opc.olympus-imaging.com/en/index.html. What is it?

ePhotozine writes: “Olympus are showing a new prototype interchangeable lens camera module, using the Micro Four Thirds lens mount and developed with MIT, it is designed to connect to smartphones and tablets. Called the “Open Platform” the camera module is designed to deliver the image quality of Olympus cameras, and connects to smartphones and tablets over Wi-Fi.

Yes, this is in small words the Olympus clone of the Sony QX lenscameras (here on eBay)! :)

Sounds very cool or not?

4K or not 4K: Here is the E-M1 image with 4K :)

Of course when you do a rumor work like I do you get plenty of critics if a rumor doesn’t become true. Well, in the case of the 4K firmware update rumor for the E-m1 I really went through many absurd troubles!!!
First of all I assure you that I didn’t make up a story. And it’s time for me to prove it to you. On top you can see one of the two pictures I got showing a beta-tester with the 4K recording feature enabled. Of course you can argue this could be a fake image. If it is is…it’s certainly a well done one!

But it doesn’t stop here: Iron Man 2 Assistant Director Nabil Fathi even openly said he saw and tested the 4K feature on the E-M1 (his tweets can be found here).

So you see this is a pretty weird story! Make up your own mind..I am done with this :)
