(FT 5) the next micro four thirds camera will have VIDEO!

countdown_video1

It comes with no surprise that Olympus will put video capabilities inside the micro four thirds camera. We all had the feeling video will first appear with the micro four thirds camera and not in the E-system.

Two sources confirmed us this news without giving us informaton if the there will be 720 24p or 720 30p or 720 60p (We really hope it will be 720 60p).

Another source told us “…the Nikon D90 implementation is “poor” and Olympus won’t implement video into the E-System, but he that is a perfect thing for mft.”

Apparently Olympus is waiting fro some progression in video quality before implementing the feature in E-cameras.

I ask all our sources to give us a detaiiled information about the video format the micro four thirds camera will use. And again thank you for sending us this infromation!

(FT 3) Panasonic GH1 sensor for the first Olympus m4/3 cameras?

fake

We all know that Panasonic delivers the sensors for Olympus digital cameras. We were wondering if the next Olympus micro four thirds camera will have exactly the same sensor as the Panasonic GH1 or a slightly different version (10MPX or 12 MPX). From what we heard until now it seems possible the Olympus will have the SAME Panasonic GH1 sensor. We are not sure if it is true, maybe they are very similar…

In a few words… it seems the sensor could be very similar and have 12MPX.

P.s.: The image is clearly fake, but we like the external Viewfinder on the camera ;)

Hold on guys. This pictures was send to us from an unknown source. So please don’t take this picture to serious. We believe the Olympus E-5 will probably be launched the third quarter this year. I ask the anonymus sender to send us a bigger picture.

The first Olympus E-5 rumor was launched by a danish website

and discussed in dpreview forum

Economic crisis poll

This are hard times. Economic crisis scares people. Nobody knows how it is going to end. I work for a private company and we feel it is harder to get money form clients. But we also feel economic crisis could bring some positive side-effect. Sometimes crisis accelerate innovation. For example Linxudistributions are getting more popular in this times. People who normally acts really conservative is forced to change and try new ways to keep their business. I hope we can get out as best as possible from this times.

We are courious to know if you are going to change you planned investments in digital cameras stuff (bodys, lenses and accessories).

Do you accept the new rumor value system?

(FT 5) first Olympus micro four thirds camera on June 16th

Olympus micro four thirds

The first Olympus micro four thirds camera will be presented the 16th of June and available the last week of July. The camera presented by Olympus will look slightly different then the one shown in various events. The digital camera will definitely not have EVF. Probably we will see a 3.0 inch LCD. Price should be around 900$-950$ WITH KIT LENS!

We got our infos from german forum. The German forum says the date is June 15th but in Japan it should be the June 16th.

We know it is April 1th the fools day, but this is NOT a Joke! :)
