The Olympus E-P1 is the Micro Four Thirds retro camera the company promised for a Summer release, and while it’s not due to be unveiled until tomorrow, official photos have already started leaking out. Come meet this stunning shooter ahead of schedule in our gallery!
The Olympus E-P1 isn’t the first Micro Four Thirds camera to market, but it is one of the first to take the technology towards a compact sized shell, unlike the likes of the Panasonic Lumix G1 and GH1. Despite the slim size, the Olympus E-P1 still has interchangeable lens capability, and looks likely to ship with 3x optical zoom lens judging from the leaked images.
There are still no official specs for the Olympus E-P1, but rumours of a 13MP sensor and the ability to shoot 720p video, plus a three-inch LCD panel and ISO 6400 sensitivity abound, with a July release and $900 (£550) price tag also expected.
Luckily we won’t have to wait long for confirmation, as Olympus is expected to out the Olympus E-P1 officially tomorrow. While away the time between now and then with the first photos of this sensational snapper.
