(FT 2) first possible human specifications list rumor for the Olympus micro four thirds camera


Received an email from a completely unknown source. The specifications sounds credible but I believe they are not right. Time will prove it:

Olympus Pn100

– 12 Megapixel

– 2,7 swifel LCD

– No EVF

– 720 24fps

– Art-filter

– Built-in flash

– external viewfinder avaiable

– sold with 14-45 kit lens

– 100-3200 ISO
– AVCHD lite video compression


One of our BIG sources told us this specs are close to the real one. Only the name is completely wrong apart the “P” !!!!!!!!!!!
He will share the specifications soon when they will be definitive…

-two sources told us the LCD will be 3.0 big !!!
-We are not certain if it will be swifel!

Sorry for the confusion but right after we published the rumor from before our more affidable sources wrote us the name camera will be different named.

    Swivel-LCD is more than unlikely so I wouldn’t care about this “information”

  • web

    This is likely close but I doubt we’ll see a swivel LCD on such a compact body. I personally prefer to not have a swivel LCD so I hope I’m right!

  • Will

    I likes the swivel. Without it, the camera is no good for arms’ length self-portraits. Olympus is all about the swivel.

  • I shoot just 640*480 and it already use more space than my pics now
    Even I shoot pics A LOT more than vids :(

    I wouldn’t mind these specs at all, but would like the 720 frame rate to be bumped up. 60fps ideal, 30fps manageable, 24fps just okay.

    I really hope they make the camera all black or mostly black with silver and very close to their pen or early slr designs.


    for some fantastic potential designs.

    Why ‘all-black’? It would look like all other cameras on the market to date making in virtually indistinguishable.
    Nah, the silver, mustard colored retro camera looks terrific; and it certainly stands out, for the better, from all other camera designs currently (and in near-term future) on the market.

  • marcram

    There was an all black, but still retro and well-designed Pen FT. It looks slick and you want the body to somewhat match other lenses that are currently all black (panasonic micro 4/3 lenses). I would like to have the upper section silver and the lower textured section black as in this camera, but slightly more updated (http://www.engadget.com/2009/04/03/olympus-plans-50-year-anniversary-party-for-diminutive-pen-camer/).

    Can you imagine trying to find an external flash that looks good on the current orange color? It would certainly stand out, but I thought that defeats the point of having something small and discrete. As long as it is a bit different than the current design as I certainly don’t like how the silver bottom and sides look. I think there needs to be consistency along the sides as they have on the front. I’ll be happy either way though to have something that does not look like the G1 or any other dSLR out there. A tiny version of the e620 with GH1 video capability would be sweet though.

    Here is why I said all black:





    Note how the side colors/texture is continued from the front. Just looks more classy to me, especially with the rumored $900 asking price.

    Again, I’ll be happy with any color they make, but have a preference for the looks of these retro models.

  • nonas

    It’s black, all black – I promise.

  • And the name of this little guy will be…….Olympus PWN !!!!
