    E-7 Image?

    If this image is a true likeness of what is to come it pleases me somewhat as it has kept its shape similar to my current E-5. Unfortunately, I don't have an image showing the layout of the rear.
    It seems to have kept the mirror box and on board flash unit.
    The layout has altered little; I note it doesn't now carry the remote cable connector and the white balance sensor has changed position with the remote control lamp. Button placement looks similar too.
    As it is now the first day of April it suggests to me we shouldn't have to wait too long for stock to be put on the shelves.



    All in all a pretty picture.

    Regards. Barr1e

    Oh wow Barrie, nice to have contacts in high places. That is probably a test mule with possible design modifications when it is finally released, I would guess around next Apr 1 considering how slow Oly moves...

    It's still March 31 here, so this must be true. Our prayers are being answered! The E-7 is clearly designed to evoke the look and feel of the beloved E-1. It's destined to become a classic, collector's item, and coveted photographic icon.

    The image texture appears altered near the E-7 name, so might this be something which a user has photoshopped? That has become an unfortunately common occurrence when people are anticipating a new camera model release. I'm not saying that I don't want an E-7 to be released, just that I've learned to be skeptical before an official announcement.

    Re: E-7 Image?

    Thanks for the comments - it must be the 1st now around the globe.

    I think if I wanted to alter the camera I would have done a little better.

    I saw several years ago on another forum a brilliant photoshopped version of the Canon 35D by Adam Barkow.

    I like the "Call Spock" button as with a back like that one would need that function

    Printer? Such primitive technology! The camera obviously includes a matter replicatior, as evidenced by the food and beverage buttons. It can simply replicate a print, or project a solid holographic image of one.

    Too bad the rear LCD is so small. Otherwise it would be a nice camera.

    Hmmm, camera appears to be on but the battery indicator shows dead, you would have though a small reactor would be used instead of batteries. Better use the call Spock button...

    No, the battery meter is for power output, used to jump start your starship.
