OM Digital has confirmed that there is a product announcement coming on February 15th beginning at noon EST (5pm UK time) for a new camera. They’ve been teasing a new “wow” camera for a little while now and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the original and legendary Olympus OM-1. So, it seems like as good a time as any to launch the first powerful camera under the new OM System brand.
The timing is quite interesting, coming just a week before the announcement of the Panasonic GH6 on February 21st (or 22nd, depending on where in the world you live). And while information on both cameras is very limited, they seem to be on a very similar level, they seem to be targeting a similar audience with some very similar video specs if the rumours are true. Except, the OM might be significantly cheaper.
