First there was the GH2, then there was the Sony Alphas and now comes the possibility that the Olympus OM-D may be the next to be hacked. According to 43rumors┬áit has some special abilities that are locked behind closed doors, some without reason. According to an anonymous email the camera has clean HDMI 4:2:2 out but is “locked by Olympus”, and there appears to be a beta version of peaking which has yet to be released.

The anonymous hacker goes on to say that the camera is much more powerful than the Panasonic GH2 — but that should go without saying due to the camera’s age. He/ She goes so far as to say that the camera is capable of recording 1080p at 120 FPS. If this is true then it will be a dream come true for a lot of people who own the camera, including a couple of staffers here. The first feature that I would wish for is a true 24p mode on the camera but 120fps would sure be nice as well.
