What happens between the lens cap and the viewfinder (or lcd screen) is not going to change greatly by the next iteration of camera. Of greater importance is what is beyond the lens and behind the viewfinder (or lcd if you choose).
Well of course Steve - but gear in itself can bring pleasure. And there's beauty in the tech too.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

With the hype over the count down one would think it's going to be a lot more of a camera over the OMD MKii .


Well we will find out very soon

That's true, normally, however from the look of EMIX it looks as though the TR7 design team have been let out of the asylum.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

This morning I have an email, apparently from Ffordes Photographic, saying that today is launch day, giving some specification. There is no mention on their website so it might be a hoax.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I had an email from Wex, offering the camera on pre-order for 2,799. They took the camera to the New Forest for a test drive https://youtu.be/SmurxImKsx8 and there is a blog.

Wex, Park and Jessops have all promoted it to me this morning.
Prices, specs and first look videos - the cat is truly out of the bag by now

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Well up to now there is nothing that makes me say WOW they say its a sport / wild life camera then you read this " Ideal for racing events, air shows and trainspotting, this function detects specific subjects for pinpoint focusing and tracking" So what about WILD life (my interest ) Iso noise seems to be the same as far as I can see as they don't mention it.
I will need to be a bit more convinced, from what iv read the AF + Tracking can be a bit hit and miss oh like the OMD MKii .


Let me just say I do really like the OMDMKii it is a fine camera and I miss more shots than the camera misses but at the moment the new camera does not seem to offer much over it.


Rob.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Totally and utterly underwhelmed.

I notice the reviews say nothing about improved High ISO performance. Also,
if it's supposed to be aimed at wildlife photographers, why no bird in flight focus algorithm? Trains, planes and cars...it seems it still won't keep up with tracking kids !!

Really struggling to see who this camera is aimed at.

2799!

I'm sorry but this has got to be a joke. What are Olympus thinking?
I can see a massive price drop pretty soon, just to get sales moving.
