(FT3) Some more tidbits about the “geomembrane” Olympus sensor.
Source “Simon” added some info to his previous “geomembrane” rumor (43rumors post here):
I asked again to explain me what ment “Geomembrane”. He said, that this is a shortcut for “Gyro Electodes Organic Membran”. That means for non engineers like me, that you can upgrade the “view angle”for the sensor from (EM-1)today 36 ° to the new sensor 58°. This leads to an increasing absorption capability. BUT again, this for the future System expecting announced in September 2016 !!
As fare as i understood it right, that means the Sensor will make 10 photos to one high resolution picture. With the [shoplink 53188 ebay]em-5 mkII[/shoplink] You Need a tripod, with the new em-1 you Can Do it freehand.
