Share

Click on picture to enlarge!

Finally that small image leak madness is over. This is the first full size picture of the upcoming new Olympus E-M5! As you see there is an external battery grip attached. It has an OM-4T like design. And here is the picture of the back (Click on it to enlarge):

This picture have been found at Amazon Japan (Click here). There is even a picture of a person with the new camera (Click here) on a polish forum!

Design opinion: As I told you yesterday the back of the camera looks a bit clunky. At the same time it looks very solid and “DSLR professional” alike. It’s a complete different approach than a Fuji X PRO 1 rangefinder design. The question now is:

Do you like the E-M5 design?

Photoshopped silver E-M5 and more user created images.


I guess you all saw the other E-M5 images which are floating around the web. Here is the truth about these images: A trusted source made that silver photoshopped E-M5 camera you see here on top of this post. It’s 98% similar to the real camera (and click here to see the black version). A 43rumors reader made this (Click here) where you can see the back of the E-M5 without the grip. And another 43rumros reader made this size comparison (Click on it to enlarge):

I got 544 emails to check now. Give me some time to see if there is a new rumor to post. Stay tuned…yes even on Sunday! I had to cancel my ski-day :(

(FT5) New small picture of the E-M5. And 5 axis stabilization explanation.

 

On top you see a new small picture leak. Again, it’s not me doing those small leaks startegy. But let’s talk about one of the  he real innovation of the new E-M5, the five axis stabilization. I got some details from sources that explains how this will work. Until now the Olympus image stabilization compensated for “two kinds of rotary movement….yaw and pitch“. But in reality the camera shake is caused by five different motions. The new five axis IS will also correct “horizontal shift“, “vertical shift” and “rolling motion“. The system is perfect for macro and shooting while moving.

No other camera manufacturer did something like that until today. That is certainly one of the areas were Olympus is the leader.

USA deal:
The Fuji X PRO 1 is still the most requested camera at Amazon (Click here). But right behind it you can find the Olympus E-PL1 (Click here) which now sells for $279 with lens. And it’s even $50 cheaper at Cameta (Click here).
