Lots of people have been either excited or baffled by Nokia’s 41-megapixel beast it’s slapped into the 808 Pureview. Firstly there’s Symbian, don’t get us started on that; then there’s the why? 41-megapixels in a sensor that small is just ridiculous – utter nonsense in fact, at least according to Olympus.
The long running Olympus corruption scandal that saw ties with the mob, hiding loses and executives leaving left and right has taken another sad turn with the apparent suicide of one of its top executives, Tsutomi Omori in New Delhi.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 is crammed full of impressive features: the fastest autofocus among interchangeable lens cameras (or so says Olympus). The E-M5 pushes a ridiculous 9 frames per second of 16-megapixel RAW photos. It's the first mirrorless camera with a magnesium alloy body—weatherproof and dustproof, yo!—and packs the world's first 5-axis image stabilisation. That's up from 2-axis in the PEN E-P3 and the E5 DSLR. But what does any of that mean to a regular person?
Camera nerds have been aflutter for weeks about a new Olympus mirrorless camera that's supposedly set for announcement any day now. The latest rumour is a full-body view of the retro-styled OM-D. If the rumour is true, the camera is going to be beautiful.
