Olympus shipping OMD E-M1 Micro Four Thirds camera in October
Olympus has launched a new flagship Micro Four Thirds camera, one that leaked <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293507==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/09/said.to.use.16mp.sensor.dslr.grip.23m.dot.electron ic.viewfinder/" rel='nofollow'>early last month</a>. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293508==http://www.getolympus.com/e-m1.html" rel='nofollow'>OMD E-M1</a>, claimed by the camera maker to be the successor to the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293509==http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/09/14/e.5.revives.olympus.mid.range.dslr.line/" rel='nofollow'>Olympus E-5</a>, uses a 16.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor combined with a new TruePic VII image processor for noise reduction at high ISOs, and a new Fine Detail Processing II engine for configuring the appropriate sharpness for individual lenses and reducing video compression artifacts. <br />
<br />
Capable of offering 10 frames per second shooting with a 41-picture RAW buffer in single autofocus mode and 6.5fps with a 50-image RAW buffer in continuous autofocus mode, the OMD E-M1 switches between a 37-point on-chip phase detection autofocus or 81-point contrast detection autofocus depending on the type of lens used. A five-axis image stabilization system with Multi-Motion IS, a 1/8000th of a second mechanical shutter, and sensitivity up to 25,600 ISO are also mentioned. <br />
<br />
The rear-facing, 3-inch tiltable LCD touchscreen on the rear is accompanied by a built-in 2.36 million-dot EVF and a 2x2 Dial Control system for adjusting four most-used camera functions. Integrated Wi-Fi allows for remote control via a smartphone, with an LCD-based QR code helping with the initial connection, as well as GPS data embedding. Olympus claims that the OMD E-M1 is weather-sealed, making it dust-proof, splash-proof, and freeze-proof down to a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit. <br />
<br />
Shipping in October, the Olympus OMD E-M1 will cost $1,400 for the body alone, or $2,200 with an M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens.
