The Olympus E-P5 rumors saga continues with the full specifications list of the PEN camera, which is said to be announced on May 10.
Olympus has not done a great job in keeping the PEN E-P5 camera a secret. The Micro Four Thirds shooter has been leaked numerous times and we can safely say that we know everything about this device, as its entire specs list has just been leaked.
Leaked Olympus E-P5 specs list “confirms” 16.1-megapixel sensor
The name of the Olympus E-P5 has been heard countless times before, while the mirrorless camera’s photos have been leaked on a couple of occasions. Partial specs have also been revealed, but a leakster has decided to unearth the entire list of features of the MFT system.
Some of the most important specs of the Olympus E-P5 include a 16.1-megapixel Live MOS image sensor, Supersonic Wave Filter dust reduction system, RAW image file support, built-in image stabilization with live view support, and a shutter speed range between 1/8000 and 60 seconds.
Focus Peaking technology will definitely be available in the E-P5
The camera’s live view will provide a field of view close to 100% with support for face detection preview. It consists of a 3-inch tilting monitor with 1,037K-dot resolution.
Olympus E-P5 specs also include a high-speed autofocus system with Focus Peaking technology.
The Micro Four Thirds shooter also offers Aperture, Shutter, and Manual modes, as well as a scene selector, which will allow photographers to use predetermined settings.
ISO sensitivity ranges between 100 and 25,600, though the built-in flash may come in handy when taking photos in low-light conditions. A self-timer is also available, along with exposure bracketing functionality.
Olympus E-P5 to feature WiFi and 1080p video recording
Olympus’ latest camera will be able to capture full HD videos at 30p in MPEG4 / H.264 format, while time lapse movies are available at 1280 x 720 and 10fps.
The connectivity department will also be an important part of the Olympus E-P5, as the camera will come packed with built-in WiFi, USB 2.0 port, and a HDMI port. GPS is also supported, though the MFT will have to be connected to a smartphone or tablet in order to access it.
VF-4 external viewfinder list of features also leaked
A hot shoe will be available for a number of accessories, including the VF-4 viewfinder, whose specs have also been leaked on the web. This accessory will be compatible with multiple cameras, including the unannounced Olympus E-PL6.
The VF-4 viewfinder features a 2.36 million-dot resolution and Eye Sensor technology. This special function will only be supported by the E-P5 and E-PL6, while other devices will not get it.
As stated above, this information will become official on May 10 during a special event.
