Posted by at 7:34 am on September 14, 2010

Olympus today, after long period of no  action, updated  its mid-range E series DSLRs by adding its first video-capable model. The E-5  has a  12.3-megapixel sensor, a maximum ISO 6,400 sensitivity and  can capture 720p video at 30 frames per second.      There is  an external mic input to improve audio.

Olympus’ biggest selling point remains weather resistance: the E-5 body is guarded against both dust and water splashes with a magnesium shell that can withstand mild impacts.

The camera has built-in image stabilization and has both CompactFlash and SD (here SDXC) card slots. It runs on Olympus’ TruePic V+ imaging engine and has an 11-point autofocusing system as well as Live View on its swivelling LCD.

The E-5 is due to arrive sometime in October and will  around $1,700 for a body alone.
