The Olympus E-PM1 deals roundup in USA and Europe.

FacebookShare

One of the benefits of having the Photokina product announcement is that current camera can be found for a cheaper price. The most sold Olympus m43 camera at Amazon is the Olympus E-PL1 (click here to see the ranking). But actually you should check out the many good deals on the tiny and “newer” Olympus E-PM1. Here is a list of links (mostly on eBay) of new(!) cameras:

USA:
Black Body for 199$ at Cameta.
Black E-PM1 with 14-42mm lens for 289$ at Adorama.

Europe:
Black Body for 199 Euro at Fotoexperte, 240 Euro at Fotomundus,
Black E-PM1 with 14-42mm lens for 299 at Mobil.

 

P.S.: Another good deal is the GX1 with kit lens for $499 at Amazon (Click here).

(FT3) No spectacular changes on new PEN cameras?

FacebookShare

An anonymous source juts sent me a message. He says he had the chance to test the new PEN cameras. He also says that there are “no spectacular changes, although the ergonomics have improved on the smaller models.

I may ask the source if he can explain me the following sentence I got from another anonymous source saying: “updates to the EPL range should include some sort of viewfinder.“. Does it mean there is some kind of new external viewfinder or what?

Thanks for your help :)

P.S.: Finally a great deal for my European colleagues: E-PM1 body for 199 Euro by Fotoexperte on eBay Deutschland (Ships to all Europe).

(FT3) Two new Four Thirds and two new M43 cameras coming?

FacebookShare

On Sunday Olympus released an official statement saying that a “Pro camera” is in the works. A 43rumors sent me this small info that may confirm that:

This evening I took part in a survey about my last purchase of a DSLR/Mirrorless camera. I mentioned that it was from Olympus and in the next screen a list with all the actual system cameras made by Olympus came up. In this list where also mentioned E-6, E-650, E-PL4 and E-PM2. May be the author of that survey seams to know more about soon coming FT- and MFT cameras.

The new PEN cameras are certainly coming so it sounds plausible that Olympus is thinking on an E-6 and E-650 release too. But for now trusted sources only confirmed the two PEN release now (and another OMD model months after Photokina).

Android and Application support. Something you want?

FacebookShare

Nikon announced the first compact camera with Android and APP support (the Nikon S800c). And the new Sony NEX cameras will also support third party application development and installation. So these may be one of the main advertised new features at photokina this year. Also Panasonic officially stated that they are interested in developing such a technology.

Question is:

how important is it for you to have those features on a m43 camera?
