    New 32MP and Global Shutter Sensors for m43

    Seems something starts moving - finally

    Sony rumoured to have developed a 32MP m43 sensor and Olympus working on Global Shutter sensors

    I hope it is worth the wait .....

    Even the rumor monger website rated the 32MB sensor rumor an FT1 - probably fake rumor. Slow day?

    Nah... will probably skip this one. With 32MP at 4:3 it can only do 6K video. I need 8K at least for my new blockbuster movie "The Cameras in my Life".

    On the nearly serious side, since it's an FT1 rumour, it's probably the Sharp sensor. 32MP with a 16:9 format sensor is more or less 8K. I might have to buy the Sharp. Terry Gou, the founder and general manager of Foxconn, the company that owns Sharp, aims to become president of Taiwan next year. I always wanted a presidential 8K camera. They say it will be good for my dynamic range. I would like to brighten up the shadow sides of my life, lift them to another level

    PS. Didn't you read the news? I'm buying a brand new E-M5, that fantastic camera that received a Gold Award by dpr... in 2012. Unfortunately, it looks like I've sold it to a needy friend before I've even picked up the camera, but I was pretty close to owning a brand new camera there

    My OM-D E-M5 still works just fine.
    With best regards, K-H.

    If they manage a higher resolution than the current 20MP and on top of that a global shutter then I would have found permanent home - maybe

    But hey, I would take whatever sensor improvement they bring in their next EM1.3

    I think it would be even harder to sell EM1x’s if there was a EM1mk3 with a “better” sensor in it for around $2000... I wouldn’t bet on that happening but I’ve been wrong before.

    Better m43 sensors will come (resolution and high ISO) but it is a matter of time when.

    I do hope within the next 1 or 2 years though, but I might be too progressive?
