Olympus has released a new video showing further insight into its upcoming release, the mirrorless OM-D E-M1X camera. Due for release on January 24, the clip shows off the camera, demonstrating some of the features that leaked last month and hints that it may be catered towards shooting sports.
If the content of the teaser clip is anything to go by, the new gear may be popular with sports photographers. The 18-second video shows a photographer shooting at a football stadium, aside a watersports pool, and on a sandy volleyball court. All of this would lead us to conclude that we can expect a solid, weather-resistant body that means the camera can be utilized in extreme conditions.
The clip also seems to confirm that images leaked last month of the body were indeed accurate.
According to 43 Rumors, a 20-megapixel micro four thirds sensor that shoots 18 fps will be featured inside. That, plus a rumored 7.5+ stop stabilization, 2 TruePic VIII processors, twice the processing speed of the E-M1 II, advanced autofocus features, an 80-megapixel high-res shooting mode at 1/60s, a live electronic ND filter, a larger EVF.
Suggestions are that the price tag will be around the $3,000 mark. Will you be investing later this month?
