New Fuji “OMD” alike camera challenges the E-M1.

Share

Source: CameraSize.

With the Fuji X-T1 announced today (specs here at Amazon) Fuji is going clearly after the Olympus E-M1. The size is about the same, they both have tilting LCD, both have a great EVF, both have about the same level of weather sealing. The major difference is that the Fuji has a larger APS-C X Trans sensor while the Olympus has the superb 5 axis stabilization and 1/8000 shutter. I guess the E-M1 finally got his first real competition. Let’s hope this will force Olympus to lower price and work on an even greater successor ;)

P.S.: The X-T1 viewfinder is quite big and is also “flat” just like the E-M10 that will be announced tomorrow (see image below)

Short note: The Fuji OMD alike camera has been annoucned today (more info at Mirrorlessrumors).

According to two trusted sources Panasonic will launch the new 4K Micro Four Thirds camera on February 7. As you already know the camera will cot a bit less than $2,000 and can record at amazing 200Mps and has ALL-I intra mode.

As we have seen from the CESshow the new Big marketing word is “4K”. 4K cameras, 4K tv’s, 4k wearable devices and so on. But the question is….is it really something you want?

Are you considering to buy the GH 4K?

Size comparison by Dicahub.

Small addition to the E-m10 rumor flow: The new E-M10 will have a grip option. But this isn’t a power grip.  It does have a quick release for easy access to battery. And the E-M10 camera is not weather sealed.

Reminder: Announcement next week on Wednesday at 6am London time! Live coverage here at 43rumors!
