This is a new Micro Four Thirds camera announced by Olympus, designed to look like professional film cameras from the ’50s and ’60s. It has a 1.44-megapixel electronic viewfinder, two programmable dials provide manual control, and the MFT cameracomes in black or the classic chrome finish, as you see above. Interestingly, it’s very small, measuring 4.8 inches wide and 1.8 inches deep, so there’s no room for a flash, but there is for an added battery pack section, also seen above. As for shooting specs, there’s a 16.1-megapixel sensor with 5-axis image stabilization, a decent ISO range of 200-25,600, and support for 1080p HD video recording.
E-M5 will be out in April 2012 for a body-only price of $999.99, with a kit lens option including a $1,099.99 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens, and a $1,299.99 bundle containing the higher-end, weather-sealed 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ lens that launched back in December of 2011.
