  1. Having in mind the users of the flagship Olympus OM-D E-M1X body, which was described yesterday, the producer introduces a new FL-700WR flash, a wireless FC-WR flash commander and the FR-WR receiver. Olympus FL-700WR is a small but versatile and effective flash. Its body has been sealed and it is resistant to splashes and dust - the flash will work in very low temperatures. Its maximum guide number is 42 (ISO 100) and the reload time is 1.5s, which enables taking serial photographs with the use of flash with the speed of 10f/s. Thanks to the use of radio communication, the flash can be used as a flash commander but also as a flash with the in-built receiver. With the use as the commander, the flash will connect with three groups of receivers and with the unlimited number of flashes. The flash user can choose the group which is to be activated and the flash power. In the RC mode (optical communication), flashes can be used in the "slave flash" mode. The "Multi Flash" mode enables catching movement thanks to multiple flashes while taking photographs with long exposition and the bulb time. In order to choose the settings adjusted optimally to the photographed object, we can choose the intensity, interval (frequency) and the number of taken photographs in a series. With the use of FL-700WR, we will use High Res Shot, Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing functions offered by OM-D E-M1X and OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera. 1). Olympus FL-700WR Flash Super PP mode: it's a mode in which we can synchronize the flash time with the shutter speed shorter than the shortest flash synchronization time for a given camera model. A possibility of synchronization with the first or second curtain - the flash takes place during the opening or closing the shutter. TTL mode: the flash makes a pre-flash in order to measure the demanded intensity of a given flash. LED lighting: the flash has been equipped with the lighting which is useful during taking photographs. The angle of the light beam in the distance of 1m amounts to 77° and the light intensity to 100 luxes. 2). Olympus FL-700WR Flash The angle of reflection can be regulated by 180° horizontally and 90° vertically. With the use of the reflected light plate and the diffuser, the angle of the flash is equivalent to the 7mm focal length (35mm equivalent: 14mm) Automatic zoom: during the use of the lenses with the focal length of 12 - 75mm (the eqivalent of 35mm: 24-150mm) we can change the angle of the flash. At the end of charging, the flash generates an audible sound. 3). Olympus FC-WR Flash Commander With the use of the wireless FC-WR flash commander and the wireless FR-WR receiver, we can control many flashes from the level of the camera. The commander can connect with three groups of receivers and with the unlimited number of flashes. The FC-WR commander has been equipped with independent buttons of groups A, B and C, which enables its convenient configuration - we will also adjust flash intensity and choose a proper photography mode. Both in FC-WR and FR-WR we will easily set groups and channels. Similarly to the flash described above, the devices of a new remote triggering system are resistant to splashes, dust and low temperatures up to -10°C. 4). Olympus FC-WR Sealings Olympus FL-700WR flash, the wireless FC-WR flash commander and the FR-WR receiver are to appear on sales at the end of February. Their prices remain unknown.
  2. OM-D E-M1X has been created based on the 20.4MP Live Mos sensor with the ISO range of 200-6400, which can be extended to 64-25000. The producer assures that the quite vintage sensor has been produced in a newer technology, which is to ensure greater sensitivity and this, in turn, to positively influence the quality of photographs taken in low light. The ultrasonic filter, which vibrates 30 thousand times per second, should hinder the sensor getting dirty during lens swapping. The TruePic VII processor is responsible for controlling all of the camera’s functions. The continuous shooting mode of the new Olympus enables taking photographs in full resolution with full AF support and the speed of 18f/s or 60f/s (if we disable focus). In the Pro Capture mode, the camera saves 35 frames in the RAW format in the buffer even before we push the camera’s shutter to the end. Of course, the AF system has also been improved: it is a system based on phase detection and 121 cross-type points, and its sensitivity amounts to -6EV (f/1.2 lenses). We get a much greater freedom of choosing the optimal AF mode of work. The AF has been equipped with new algorithms responsible for tracking objects – the system recognizes and analyzes the movement of objects on the photographs in real time. The function of intelligent object detection is supposed to track the moving objects (cars, planes, etc.) which show up in the frame. "High Res Shot" – this phrase will be mentioned many times and we will possibly see it in every promotional material encouraging people to buy OM-D E-M1X. The mode enables taking sharps photographs “from the hand” with the resolution up to 50MP. Of course, this “magic” takes place through combining several frames. In the case of using a tripod, with the use of High Res Shot we will take photographs with the maximum resolution of 80MP. In both cases the data concern RAW photographs. 1). Olympus OM-D E-M1X + Olympus M.Zuiko ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO Future equipment expenses will be limited by the ND filter simulation mode ND (within the range ND2 - ND32) and the Flicker Scan technology which is supposed to reduce the artifacts which may appear during taking photographs in artificial, flickering light with the use of the electronic shutter. Here, it’s worth mentioning the use of the improved heat dissipation system which is to extend the durability of the standard mechanical shutter by 400 thousand cycles. The sensor stabilization system has also been improved – it amounts to 7.5EV for the focal length of 100mm (the equivalent of 200mm for full-frame systems). This time, Olympus has not forgotten about film-makers – in the Cinema mode we can record films in 4K 4096 × 2160px with the speed of 24f/s, and in standard 4K 3840 × 2160px with the speed of 30f/s (with the use of IPB or All-I compression). The Full HD materials can be recorded in slow motion with the speed of 120f/s – a flat OM-Log 400 profile is also present. During film-making, we will fully use the stabilization system. We also have 3 specially created modes and a useful focus peaking function. A possibility of connecting a microphone and headphones as well as a rotating screen are conveniences which should satisfy vloggers. 2). Olympus OM-D E-M1X Olympus OM-D E-M1X has been fully designed from scratch which is to ensure faster and more efficient work. The camera has been equipped with a vertical grip inside of which we will find two BLH-1 batteries. A fully-charged battery enables taking 2580 photographs. Charging the battery can be done directly in the camera and it takes 2 hours. A new multifunctional selection disc is now in the upper part of the camera’s housing and the re-designed ISO button enables more intuitive work. A novelty is a button dedicated for the settings of saving files on cards. As could be expected from a modern construction, all buttons and manipulators are now more accentuated and easier for intuitive find. The new camera has also much more buttons with the possibilities of assigning a particular function. The use of the AF joystick is also a new thing in the OM-D series. The body’s resistance has been improved – it is protected against dust and splashes. The camera is supposed to work properly in the temperatures up to -20º. On the housing, there are 2 SD UHS-II card slots, the GPS module and the set of detectors: thermometer, compass and manometer, which should enrich the information about the circumstances in which particular photographs were taken. The electronic viewfinder has the resolution of 2.36MP (0.83× zoom) and the rotating touch screen has the diagonal of 3.2". The functions of wireless connectivity have also been expanded – the camera is equipped with the Wi-Fi tethering. 3). Olympus OM-D E-M1X + Olympus M.Zuiko ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO Olympus OM-D E-M1X with the batteries weighs 997g and its dimensions are 144,4 × 146,8 × 75,4mm. The camera will appear on sale at the end of February 2019 and its price will possibly amount to $3000. Together with the camera, the following things will also be available: a new flash and the 150 - 400mm f/4.5 lens equipped with the 1.25× converter.

  9. M.Zuiko ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO is yet another Olympus lens which had its premiere today. Popular focal length, which is equivalent to 34mm for full frame, very advanced optical system, quick and precise autofocus and compact construction will for sure make the new lens gain many fans among photographers and filmmakers. 2). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm F1.2 PRO is a lens which is to ensure greater than average resolution and image plasticity within the whole frame range. Inside the lens we will find 15 optical elements placed in 11 groups. Among them there are aspherical lenses and new ED-DSA (Extra-Low Dispersion Dual Super Aspherical) lenses, thanks to which it was possible to limit their quantity. Specific elements have been covered with Z Coating Nano, which is to reduce undesired lighting effects while working against the light. 2). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO - Construction M.Zuiko ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO has also been equipped with quick and precise autofocus whose minimum focus distance is 20cm. A focus clutch mechanism, known from other lenses of the producer, enables photographers to instantly choose automatic or manual focus modes. The new M.Zuiko is a very resistant and compact construction. It has the dimensions of 68×87mm and it weighs 380g. The metal tubus has been fully sealed against dust and splashes. 3). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO The presented lens will be available on sale in March 2018. Unfortunately, we don’t know the price yet. 4). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO - Sample Photo 5).

  10. Today, Olympus presented a new M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens, which will possibly make the dreams of many Micro Four Thirds System users come true. This newest telephoto lens ensures the equivalent of focal length of around 90mm (view angle of 27 degrees) and the maximum aperture of f/1.2. Thanks to these parameters, it’s going to be a great portrait lens. 1). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO Similarly to other fixed lenses of the PRO series, the new model is a very complex construction. The optical system consists of 14 elements placed in 10 groups. The lens is to ensure brilliant resolution and guarantee the highest image quality across the frame, even at maximum aperture. Special anti-reflection coatings (Coating Nano) have been used in the lens in order to limit undesired lighting effects. Precisely designed and modern optical system is also to efficiently limit chromatic aberration and vignetting 2). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO - Construction Quick and precise autofocus motor adjusts focus from 50cm, which, with the combination of 121-point cross-type AF system of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera, is to ensure amazing image focus, even at maximum aperture. M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO weighs 410g and has the dimensions of 70×85mm. The tubus is, of course, sealed and frost-resistant (up to -10C). The lens is to appear on sale in December this year. The price has not been revealed yet. 3). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO - Sample Photo 4). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO - Sample Photo 5). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO - Sample Photo

  12. Even though this camera had its premiere some time ago, we would like to mention it since its previous version is the best-selling mirrorless camera on the market. Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, as this is the camera that we’re talking about, is a renewed version of E-M10 Mark II, which offers quite good functions and ergonomy for a reasonable price. Just like its predecessor, Mark III is equipped with a 16-Mp Live MOS sensor, of course in the Micro Four Thirds format, enabling it to function within the ISO sensitivity range of 200 - 25600. On the one hand, it is a convenient size of the sensor. On the other hand, all competitive cameras already have greater sensor resolution – and we can expect that this model will stay on the market for at least 2 years. The sensor has perfect 5-axis sensor stabilization, known from the higher models, which, according to the producer, should be characterized by the effectiveness of 4 EV. 1). Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III with M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 The sensor works in the set with the new TruePic VIII processor, which will possibly positively influence the way of processing images and their quality in higher sensitivity. 2). Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III With the use of this camera, we can take photographs with the maximum speed of 8.6fps and we can save around 22 photographs in RAW. These parameters are practically the same as in the previous model. The autofocus has now 121 AF points, which cover almost the entire frame. 3). Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III with M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 The camera still offers an electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 2.36MP, the 3’’ folding LCD touch screen and Wi-Fi module, with the use of which we will be able to remotely control the device and send photographs to mobile devices. The greatest improvement is the possibility of recording movies in 4K with the speed of 30fps, and the greatest disappointment is the fact that the body of the camera will not be fully made of metal, as in the case of the previous versions of the E-M10 model. However, as the producer ensures, the camera should still be resistant. But it’s a pity that the producer gets rid of the things which have previously distinguished constructions in this series. 4). Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III with M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III will appear on sale in two color versions in the middle of September 2017. The price for the body only will be $649, and for the set with the kit lens M.Zuiko Digital 14-42 mm 1:3.5-5.6 II R - $799.

  16. Olympus presented a successor of the Tough TG-4 camera - the TG-5 model. The cameras from this series are resistant to extreme conditions (water, falls). The camera has the TruePic VIII processor, borrowed from the E-M1 Mark II model. The image is generated by the 1/2.3'' 12MP BSI CMOS sensor with the resolution of 12MP. Thanks to such a set, the camera ensures photography within the sensitivity range of 100-12800. 1). Olympus Tough TG-5 The image is generated by a varifocal lens with the focal length of 25-100mm and f/2.0-4, which is equipped with the image stabilization and consists of 9 lenses placed in 7 groups. 2). Olympus Tough TG-5 With the newest resistant Olympus camera, we will be able to take photos in both RAW and JPG formats. Apart from that, we will have a possibility of recording movies in 4K (30p) and Full HD (120f/s). 3). Olympus Tough TG-5 As could be expected of such a construction, the camera has a waterproof (15m) and shockproof housing. The screen has a resolution of 460,000 points and the size of 3''. Olympus Tough TG-5 is to appear on sale in June 2017. It will cost around $450.
  17. Olympus Sliced an E-M1 Mark II in half to show you the insides... Looks impressive
  18. The fans of 4/3 system (if there are any) may have expected this for a long time, but only now Olympus has officially confirmed, by mentioning this in their newest catalogue, that they are going to withdraw from the production of lenses and cameras for the 4/3 mount. 4/3 standard appeared on the market in 2003 and was the first digital photographic system. It was intended to be standardised in such a way that other producers could use it. In reality, other companies preferred to go their own ways and create lenses for APS-C sensors. 1). Olympus E-1 Despite the fact that the system was never especially popular, it enjoyed a very good reputation among photographers. In 2008 Olympus decided to introduce the Micro Four Thirds system, and then it was already known that the future will belong to this system. The last camera for this mount had its premiere in 2011.
