43Rumors: More Olympus OM-D Functionality May Be Locked Behind Un-Hacked Doors

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 it 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.
