More Details About the Olympus E-M1 Mark II Specs
Previous reports mentions that Oly may use a 20-megapixel MFT sensor made by Sony on the high-end Micro Four Thirds shooter.
The mirrorless camera will feature a very fast continuous shooting speed. This will sure make the shooter aimed at professional sports photography. Olympus worked hard to reduce rolling shutter to a negligible level. But it won’t have global shutter.
Professional cameras have dual memory card slots for a variety of use cases. The Dual SD card slot makes sense when we talk about a high-end model. The rumor mill also claiming that it will include an electronic shutter of 1/32000s and 4K video recording capability.
