UPDATE: I reapeat it hard and loud. The info comes via new source. For now trusted sources said they didn’t hear anything about any E-M1 4K firmware update.
Well, sometimes it happens that I get conflicting reports. While a trusted source said he didn’t hear about a possible 4K upgrade of the E-M1 the new source I am in touch with claims the exact opposite. The reason why I still consider the new source worth of my consideration is that I know with 100% certainty that he comes from the high end video world. So he is actually not anonymous to me :)
It’s not my intention to confuse you but this is a rumor site after all and what fun would it be without doubts, hopes and tension? After my post from yesterday that new source said to have more info to share. He said the firmware update for the E-M1 will be released next week and have those features:
“– Unlocked 4K recording (over 100mb/s in simple HD)
– Different frame recording mode including 24p/25p/50p/60p
– High speed recording frame FHD/HD (120p/240p) – Slow motion
– Motion Film
– Kinda of Cinema Grading Features (similar to Slog A7s and the one on the GH4)
– Like on the 4K recording (higher bitrate)
About the photo part. I don’t know exactly the name of this feature, but this feature will let you take picture without pressing any button on the camera when the sensor detect a movement, the camera will take many picture of it. Also another function about doubling a picture (picture over another picture)”
Like I said, take it with a grain of salt. I hope other sources can help me out on that matter. And if not well…in one week we will know the truth for sure :)
