Rumor: Olympus E-M1X camera automatically aligns focus area by subject




Olympus’ upcoming high-end system camera, the E-M1X, uses artificial intelligence for the autofocus system. This automatically adjusts the focus area to the shape or size of the subject. At least that is what makes the 43rumors website based on sources.

According to the rumored website , several sources have confirmed that the autofocus automatically adjusts the focus area. This ai-autofocus would make it possible in practice to recognize and follow the helmet of a motorcyclist, for example. The number of focal points and the shape of the focus area would also automatically be adjusted to what is being photographed. If, for example, a basketball player is photographed, a focus area of ​​five focus points follows each other.

The E-M1X would have the same 20-megapixel sensor as the 2016-released OM-D E-M1 Mark II , without the addition of a global shutter . The already good stabilization of this high-end system camera with microfourthirds sensor from 2016 would have been further improved with the E-M1X; the new camera would offer up to 7.5 stops of compensation.

Furthermore, the new device would have a kind of pixel shift function, which makes it possible to make images from a hand to a shutter speed of 1 / 60s with a resolution of 80 megapixels. The E-M1X would have a built-in vertical grip and would be significantly more expensive than the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, which was launched on the market for 1999 euro. It is likely that Olympus will unveil or announce the new camera in January.
