(FT 4) Final m4/3 camera from Olympus will have a different look then the mockup


We are sure everyone has in his mind this photo, the secret Olympus camera covered with a blue cloth. We already made the prediction that the final REAL camera will look different than the orange mockup. Now we have the first REAL confirmation give by a Japanese photographer. According to Kimio Tanaka, photographer and camera technology writer, the camera wore blue velvet was a real prototype very nearly finished! He said he couldn’t believe that story at first. But it was true.

UPDATE: It is rumored to be silver.

UPDATE 2: Our main sources told us that under the cloth they have the final version of the micro four thirds camera!
