Olympus shows off next-gen top-end SLR
Olympus began showing off its next-generation top-end SLR camera, a successor to the E-1, at the Photo Marketing Association trade show.
Olympus has been short on details other than to say the camera will ship this year. In addition, the company said the new model would be rugged and weatherproof for the demanding conditions of professional photographers.
The camera prototype was on display at the here. It featured a main camera body and a detachable grip for taking vertically oriented shots and--if other manufacturers' products are anything to go by--for housing more batteries.
