(FT3) New PEN with new EPSON integrated viewfinder to come in Spring?

FacebookShare

The only FT5 news I have right now is that there will be one new Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus to come soon. Now two new sources said that this should be a new kind of PEN camera with built-in viewfinder. And to be more specific it uses the 2.36 megapixels Epson viewfinder announced three months ago at Photokina (Source: Epson). Again, this hasn’t been confirmed yet by a trusted source. All we can be 99% sure off is that a new camera is about to be announced soon and it’s my guess that this will happen right in time for the CP+ show in Japan.

P.S.: Olympus has a long history of making compact cameras with built-in rangefinders. Just check the super long list of eBay auction on these cameras (Click here). Got some inspiration for the new digital PEN with EVF? :)

While the classic compact camera market is shrinking under the pressure of smartphones the high end compact camera remains an interesting market. And according to a Digicaminfo source Olympus will launch a new XZ-10 compact luxury model. Specs are unknown yet. The big question is about the sensor size. Will it use a “classic” small sensor? Will it use an 1 inch sensor like the Sony RX100 or even a larger Four Thirds sensor?
