On Monday, a massive set of Sony Lens Camera photos leaked online just a couple of days before the official announcement was made. Well, the same thing has happened to Olympus, whose upcoming OM-D E-M1 Micro Four Thirds camera was just outed in photos that show it from just about every angle imaginable. Read more…
In a recent interview with Quesabesde, Miguel Angel Garcia, the CEO of Olympus Spain, dropped another “official” hint at what the camera company is cooking up to replace the E-5. The subsequent article, which initially said that the camera would be compatible with both Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds Lenses, has since been reworded to state simply that the replacement for the E-5 will be “capable of harnessing the full potential of Four Thirds lenses.”
You might remember the Olympus marketing stunt from a few weeks ago when they sent a box complete with two walnuts and a note that simply read “coming soon” to a few different tech blogs. Since then we’ve seen the release of the new TG-1, but apparently Olympus isn’t done with either their new releases or the marketing stunts that go along with them.
Sadly, their most recent note to TechRadar came without finger food, but instead simply read:
“A portrait! What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound.”
This time around we won’t speculate as to what the note is hinting towards (although some believe it’s a 75mm portrait lens that’s been in production for some time) but feel free to deliberate away in the comments down below.
The world of photography is full of “nuts,” but these are the first we’ve seen that you could actually crack open with a nutcracker. For its latest photography marketing stunt, Olympus has been sending out a box complete with two walnuts and a note that simply says “coming soon.” TechRadar received one, and PhotographyBlog received another.
