Olympus E-PL2 to get unusual spotlight add-on

Olympus' E-PL2 has surfaced again in a second scoop that also gives it an uncharacteristic accessory. A hot shoe mount will give it two snake lights to illuminate macro subjects with shorter ranges. The add-on seen by 4/3 Rumors is LED-powered and will power entirely off the hot shoe.

The camera itself is known to be focusing on a jump to ISO 6,400 peak sensitivity, easier movie capture and a custom Bluetooth peripheral that will give Android and Windows Mobile users a way of pulling camera footage while sidestepping a computer. A higher resolution LCD and more video-friendly behavior should be additional focuses.

Olympus is expected to show the E-PL2 next week, but it might not ship at the same time. Lens converters for fisheye, macro and wide angle shooting are due to arrive in February or March and could be signs of when the camera in question will be in stores.
