We’ve heard several whispers that Olympus could be set to release a new camera under the model number, E-M1. In fact it wasn’t too long ago that a detailed description (alleged) of the camera surfaced which basically shared some details about the camera’s body, design, placement of buttons, and etc. Well thanks to the folks at Photo Rumors, it seems like they have managed to get their hands on additional specifications of the Olympus E-M1 camera, although their authenticity is questionable since Olympus has yet to make an official announcement of sorts.
According to the specifications, it seems that we can look forward to the E-M1 camera sporting a 16MP sensor with a DSLR-type grip. It will also have 81 AF points, shoot at 10fps, come with built-in WiFi for wireless transfer of photos/videos, an ISO range of 200-25,600, a 3” tiltable TFT LCD touchscreen display, a shutter speed of 1/8000s-60s, and a Micro Four Thirds Mount. Unfortunately details such as price or when the camera will be announced continues to remain a mystery, but hopefully Olympus will step forward with the official details soon, until then be sure to take this with a grain of salt.
