Olympus E-M1X presentation coming soon
In a few hours – more precisely on January 24, 2019 – Olympus will present the new flagship E-M1X. In recent weeks, we have already followed in detail all the rumors and leaks around the E-M1X and of course we will also tomorrow detail the new DSLM report. So feel free to visit our homepage tomorrow during the day and take a look at the latest articles.
All technical data leaked
Now, just before the official presentation, all the technical data of the E-M1X was leaked, so we can already get a very accurate picture of what specifications the camera will come onto the market with.
Let’s take a look at the most important information:
- 20.4 Megapixel Micro Four Thirds Sensor
- Two TruPicVIII processors
- High-resolution mode with 80 megapixels, 50 MP from the hand
- 5-axis image stabilizer that compensates for 7.5 f-stops
- Continuous frame rate: 60 fps, 18 fps with autofocus
- EVF with 2.36 million pixels
- 3-inch display with 1.04 million pixels, very flexible
- Autofocus with 121 points, EV -3.5 to 20
- Videos in Cinema 4K, Full HD with 120 fps, Log shooting
- Mechanical and silent electronic shutter
- Live ND feature
- two UHS-II memory cards
- WiFi, GPS, thermometer, compass
- Battery life of 2,580 images
- Weight: 997 grams at 144.4 x 146.8 x 75.4mm
- Weatherproof and robust housing with vertical handle
What I spontaneously negative eye drops here: Is this the same 20-megapixel sensor, we already know from older cameras? Is Olympus really only using a viewfinder with 2.36 million pixels, as it did years ago with the E-M1 Mark II? Can autofocus compete with Sony with just 121 fields? No improvement in the continuous shooting speed compared to the E-M1 Mark II, although the E-M1X should be a sports camera?
I’m curious if Olympus will succeed with this camera. Ultimately, of course, it depends on how the E-M1X beats in practice, but on paper I do not know how to convince all the specifications of this new flagship. Especially with the viewfinder, I had hoped for more.
What do you think of the specifications?
