A new addition to the Olympus E-M1X features by the rumor mill. According to recent reports the upcoming OM-D E-M1X camera to feature Dual TruePic VIII processors.
The highly anticipated Micro Four Thirds camera is expected to be announced on January 20, 2019 along with two telephoto zoom, one wide-angle zoom and a speedlight. Exciting days ahead for Micro 4/3rds users.
Measuring 144.37 x 146.765 x 75.345mm, the Olympus E-M1X will be a sports camera with a built-in battery grip. As you can see, its pretty big for Micro Four Thirds camera, especially with the vertical battery grip attached.
This Dual TruePic VIII processors makes it clear that is why the body of the upcoming Olympus E-M1X is bigger. Looks like Olympus doubles the processing power. The E-M1 II already has two processors, so it’s doubtful to impact the battery life. We think this will create more battery consumption.
As previously mentioned the upcoming E-M1X camera will NOT be the E-M1II successor. It is said to be a Micro Four Thirds camera but has 2x the processing speed of the current E-M1 Mark II.

On the other hand, there is still a lot of unknown details about the sensor of Olympus E-M1X. One of them is how will be the faster sensor readout speed. A much faster sensor readout has many advantages which will provide more dynamic range and less noise. According to rumored OM-D E-M1X specs, the camera wil include a new 20 megapixel sensor, a 50 megapixel handheld high-resolution shooting mode.
The camera will also fetaure 18fps burst shooting, and an incredible 7.5 stops of image stabilisation. The price of the Olympus E-M1X will stand around $3,000.
If everything goes on schedule, only the announcement of this model remains to be made, as most of the information on the Olympus E-M1X specs and initial images is leaked. See also : Olympus E-M1X Hands-on Images.
