New Olympus PEN-F Camera Rumored to Feature 50MP Mode

More information of the upcoming Olympus PEN-F mirrorless interchangeable lens camera has been leaked online.

According to Olympus rumors, the new digital PEN-F camera will be able to take 50-megapixel high resolution images, a similar feature found on the popular OM-D E-M5II camera.

The Olympus E-M5II boasts a 40MP high resolution shot mode, achieved by shifting the sensor in half-pixel steps and capturing eight images over a period of one second.
