A new Micro 4/3 camera is coming, the Olympus Pen F. Earlier there was a camera produced with the same name in the 60’s. It is a retro looking (retro feeling) camera, with a 20 Megapixel Micro 4/3 sensor, 5 axis in camera image stabilizer, and a unique high res mode where the camera combine 8 images together to form a final 50 Megapixel image. The camera also has a 2.36M dot Oled viewfinder as well. The camera has a black and a silver version.
The stabilizer claimed to give 5 stops gain compare to normal handheld shooting. The fastest shutter speed of the camera is 1/8000s, and 1/16000s with electronic shutter, which is pretty fast.
The creative filters (black and white, colored) has a pronounced function, there is a dedicated dial for them in front of the camera. Apart from black and white filters there are color filters for 12 colors with 11 different adjustable levels as well.
