Olympus Top DSLR Teaser
Olympus is about to release a new high-end DSLR, the company has revealed today through a teaser page. The mystery camera is clearly targeted as an updated for the now well-established E-1 by its placement in the teaser as higher-end than the E-410 and E-510 mid-range cameras. Reports indicate that the camera is likely to be known as the P-1 and has been demonstrated in mockup form at recent photography expos without any mention of its technical features.
In spite of the lack of information, the camera is also expected to carry over many of the features of Olympus' most recent digital SLR cameras, including the compact and interchangeable Four Thirds lens system as well as a live LCD preview and automatic correction for camera shake and dust.
No hints have been given as to when the camera will make its formal appearance. A worldwide release is anticipated and will likely take place at an upcoming major photography expo. [via Photography Blog]
