Olympus Announces New OM-D E-M1 Camera

October will see the market debut of a new and exciting camera from Olympus. The OM-D E-M1 flaunts a new body with better balance and improved ergonomics, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Merging professional DSLR performance with compact-camera agility, this new MFT (Micro Four Thirds) gadget will be available with or without a lens kit at $2,200and$1,400, respectively.

Its advanced features include a 16.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor that shortens the focus time due to its on-chip phase detection, a high-res 2.36-million dot electronic viewfinder, and the ability to shoot photos at 1/8000s, resulting in 10 frames per second.

The 3-inch tilt touchscreen LCD is another nice feature, and so are the 1080P video recording capability, the built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, external microphone jack, X-sync socket,12 art filters, hot shoe, and more. Fall sounds much better when it comes with exciting gadgets like this one.
