The Teased Olympus Camera Looks Very Familiar

You know that camera that’s going around the interwebs by Olympus? After studying the image over at, I realized that I photographed something very similar two Photo Plus’s ago. Hit the jump for an analysis.

Olympus's Micro 4/3rd's camera

(Author’s Note, if you’re going to use this image, please link back to my flickr.)

In 2008, Olympus showed this off as their prototype Micro Four Thirds camera. Granted the colors aren’t spot on, but they do look very similar. Perhaps Olympus has taken this prototype and revamped it a bit.

If it is, it’s about time for the release. The thing was about the sized of a bar of Ivory soap.
