Olympus OM-D E-M5 Leaks

A certain Olympus Micro Four Thirds  camera has been far from shy prior to its official unveiling (whenever this happens).  Today I had a rather nice email from a friend giving me some intel about this camera to follow up on the earlier leak I did (https://thepathuntaken.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/olympus-leaked-image-of-the-om-d-camera/)

This person suggests the E-M5 could sport a “super fast” autofocus and 3D tracking system, an external “weather-sealed” GN10 flash (which will come very in handy with this British weather) and additional filters. If the rumors are to be believed, you’ll be able to see the effects of the image stabilization through the electronic viewfinder.

Nikon has confirmed the 36.3-megapixel D800

The Nikon D800 adopts many new features from the D4 (The D800’s big brother to say), such as the same Advanced Scene Recognition System with 91k-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering III, 1080/30p HD video with 20 adjustable audio levels and uncompressed HDMI output, in-camera two-consecutive-shot HDR and Active D-Lighting. In addition there is a difference in resolution (remember, more megapixels doesn’t translate to better quality images), you gain a 2.7x in focal length (effectively multiplies the focal length of any lens by 2.7) which means it will bring you closer to your subject without the need to a longer lens or teleconverter (very handy for those on a budget).

The Nikon D800 isn’t the most compact full-frame DSLR that Nikon’s released to date. It’s noticeably taller than the D700 (by roughly half an inch), with a higher pentaprism and smooth appearance. But a new body design isn’t the only element differentiating the D800 from its predecessor. The camera offers excellent contrast-detection autofocus, allowing you to sharpen your subjects much more quickly while in live view.

The D800 also offers video improvements, and lets you capture 29 minutes and 59 seconds in a single clip in normal quality mode because of the D8000’s larger footprint, you’ll need to upgrade your grip along with the camera. The MB-D12 attachment uses the same battery as the D4, and boosts the camera’s burst mode from four frames per second to six in DX mode.

And what about price?  As to date Nikon UK hasn’t given a date (To my knowledge) but as seen as I have one Ill do a update : D

As for launch dates the end of April is a rumor.

Olympus: Leaked image of the OM-D Camera

From the company that brought you the E-1 which in my opinion changed the SLR market… And now after looking at the website 43 Rumers I found this:



This is claiming that this is the soon-to-be new addition to the OM series, which is expected to get unveiled next month. Olympus is no rookie in the Micro Four Thirds market (when they designed it) so it shouldn’t come as a surprise for the rumored specs to be a decent upgrade in comparison to its PEN Cameras. Allegedly, this camera will be sporting a magnesium chassis, 16 megapixel sensor with HDR optimization, up to 25600 ISO and a 3-inch OLED swivel display (because Olympus knows you love gadgets with rotating screens), amongst other features.

So does this tickle your fancy? Well, if it does you better get saving now as rumers have it. It will be on sale for just over #1000 (RRP)
