New Little Camera From The Big O
They can now do the same thing again with a NEW E-M5 MkII. Olympus have redesigned the sturdy workhorse to incorporate new features:
16 megapixel sensor that can be set to waggle around eight times in a second and to deliver a 40 megapixel image at the end. Wowsa! Look out hard drive.
Vario-angle touch screen.
New, bigger, and better grip.
Knurled control dials. Knurling rocks.
5-stop image stabilisation.
Improved weather sealing.
New bounce and swivel flash supplied with camera.
Anti-shake shutter curtain function to steady down long exposures.
Increased battery life - about 2 x what you got before.
Silent electronic shutter function.
These things are enough to suggest that current E-M5 users get another body - you can always use two on any professional shoot and the new one will process things a lot faster. Dedicated photo enthusiasts need no urging to hammer the piggy bank and get out buying - but as we don't know when they will get here to the store, we can only take pre-orders right now. I anticipate that the Olympus national reps will come give us a demonstration of it when it is ready to go, and we are preparing to be amazed.
