by Steve Brown, Google News:A new Olympus OM-D E-PL1 camera is in the news as it’s about to enter mass production and will make its debut in the United States in August.
But if you’re not quite ready to see the latest crop of E-series cameras in action, the Olympus E1 is the only one in the world to feature in this feature article, which focuses on the camera itself.
For starters, the E-1 is an Olympus OM rangefinder camera, and it’s built like a tank.
Like all OM rangefinders, it features a 24.2MP CMOS sensor, and the lens mount has been redesigned from the ground up.
Olympus says it uses a 4.7-inch LCD display with a 1.6x crop factor, but it’s worth noting that the E1 will also be the first camera to offer a 3.0-inch display.
This will give the E 1 a new dimension of size.
The sensor on the E’s sensor, the 1.5-inch, 1.3-inch sensor, is the same as that used in the E, and Olympus says that the sensor is built to deliver “the widest dynamic range in a digital camera.”
Weighing in at just 7.1 ounces, it has a pixel density of 5.7 dots per inch, which is higher than the E P1’s 7.5 dots per in.
It also has an effective pixel size of 541.7 x 300.0 mm, which compares to the 732 x 300 mm of the E E-2.
It’s slightly smaller than the 677 x 295 mm of its E-3 predecessor.
Olympus also says the sensor has an “optical rangefinder” element.
The E-Ps 1.2 megapixel, 20-point AF sensor has been replaced by a 12-point autofocus system.
The Olympus E 1 also has a 3,300mAh battery, and that’s enough for the camera to take some time to charge.
The Olympus E3, on the other hand, has a 4,000mAh battery and a 4K video recording capability.
