Olympus E-M5 Hacked?

Recommended Posts

43 Rumors [url="http://www.43rumors.com/olympus-e-m5-hack-clean-hdmi-422-and-focus-peaking-possible/"]has an article[/url] about the E-M5 being not only hackable, but hiding a bevy of amazing features. Namely,[list]
[*]Focus peaking already exists, it's just turned off.
[*]120fps 1080p
[*]Clean HDMI 4:2:2 output also already exists... and is turned off.
[/list]
If these are true, and are actually implementable, I for one would flip my shit. Focus peaking is a killer app for me, but the other two are also highly desirable.

The hackers discussion of how difficult Oly is making the process of getting the drivers isn't exactly encouraging, though. One would expect the success of the GH2 [i]because of[/i] its hackability to get through to even the stupidest executive. I guess not.

Thoughts?

      Panasonic GH5
      $1550 shipped

      Purchased last year. Used on a short film and some home video. Great condition.

      Comes with
      4 batteries,
      charger,
      strap,
      Freetril 128gb V60 card
      Lexar 128gb 1000x
      ( both cards can do 4k 400mbps and 4k 60p)


      Sigma 18-35mm Nikon Mount
      $610 shipped 

      Great condition, purchased used on ebay. No imperfections in the glass. The auto focus piece was removed to do a manual aperture mod. Never got around to doing the mod, but never put the auto focus board back in as I never use auto focus on the sigma. Comes with a Lens Turbo II Nikon to m43 speedbooster, also in great condition. This allows adjustment of the aperture.


      Olympus 17mm 1.8
      $285 shipped

      Purchased used but was in flawless condition and still is. Nice fast little auto focus lens.

      Olympus 45mm 1.8
      $185 shipped

      Just bought this little guy, perfect condition.



      email me for the quickest response you can try calling my home phone but I am not around a lot.

      I am open to offers but the prices are pretty solid. If you are in the Detroit area I am open to meeting in person and exchanging.

      Open to trades for a Fuji Xt2 or XH1. Also would be open to Fuji lenses. If you want the entire bundle I could give you a deal.

      Ok this is not the pinnacle of artistic videography or technical prowess, but hopefully it can get by on a bit of story and a location that can't be beat. I'm not very active on this forum but I have learned a lot of technical tips from lurking in old threads so I thought I might share my recent video that I'm actually very pleased with.
      I know you guys love the tech stuff so I'll let you know the expensive equipment I used: Olympus E-M10 with a Panasonic 14mm f2.5 and an iPhone 6. Unfortunately more than I would have liked ended up shot on the iPhone, but what can you do. It was just the two of us up there and the success (and safety!) on the climb was definitely not a sure thing, so I considered it a success to get as much footage out of it as I did. 
      The Google Earth screen capture stuff I was pleased to figure out, but it could have been executed much better. I couldn't get the application to load the full resolution images of El Capitan, so I was stuck using the web browser which was laggy (on my computer anyways) and didn't have much in the way of camera controls.
      Anyways thanks for watching and hope you enjoy.

      Up for sale is my Olympus Zuiko Pro 12-40mm f2.8 lens.
      I bought this on a whim and have only used it 4 times so condition is as new. It comes with a uv filter, original lens hood , and original lens bag.
      The times I did use it the results were really really nice but I am just not a zoom person.
      This does not come with the original box.
      Looking for £430 +£5 for postage for it.
      I will post pictures later .
       
      Thanks for looking
