Recently a Leica factory man came out and said he was ‘troubled’ by Sony’s approach to the NEX camera – that of a small body but large lenses. It’s an interesting remark and quite political because Leica are known to be developing their own competing mirrorless camera. Not a rangefinder like the M9 but consumer priced.
UPDATES: AVCHD is 17Mbit and sensor output is 30p (NTSC) or 25p (PAL)
Olympus’s new high end mirrorless camera the EP-3 has been leaked to 43Rumors.com. Here, EOSHD takes a look at the video side of the new Olympus flagship.
There are big improvements to video, with full HD AVCHD, video optimised lenses including a 12mm F2 and a new kit lens. The screen has had a huge revamp too, soundly beating the GH2 with a OLED 600k display.
Olympus have been helpfully telegraphing their future strategy in Israel.
With Olympus having said that the E-5 would be their last DSLR and with Sony also turning their back on the optical viewfinder, the inevitable future is now in full swing (sush – nobody wake up Canon and Nikon!)
Now a previously confidential presentation shows what that future might look like.
