Números Enormes: Câmera Olympus OM-D E-M1X

N

Fabricante japonesa anunciou sua maior e mais turbinada câmera para o mercado profissional (no sentido mais exato da palavra!)

Depois de passar algum tempo atiçando a galera com um vídeo vago e cheio de penumbras, a Olympus anunciou hoje a sua mais nova câmera DSLM, chamada OM-D E-M1X:

Voltada para o mercado profissional, com o E-MX1 a Olympus mantém a sua tradição de lançar uma nova câmera profissional topo de linha a cada 3~4 anos.

E como sua antecessora, a OM-D E-M1 Mark II, a palavra que talvez melhor descreva esse novo produto é “over-engineering.”

Over-o-quê?

Over-engineering é um curioso termo em inglês que descreve o ato de projetar um produto para ser mais robusto ou ter mais recursos do que o necessário para o uso pretendido. E é essa a impressão que temos ao analisamos os destaques dessa nova câmera.

Por exemplo, ela ainda vem equipada com um sensor Live CMOS de 20 megapixels no padrão Micro Four Thirds

… capaz de capturar imagens de até 5.184 x 3.888 pixels sendo que a maioria das suas especificações técnicas descrevem um equipamento voltado para agilidade e alto desempenho, características muito apreciadas pelos fotógrafos de esportes e ação — um nicho de mercado por sinal dominado pelas concorrentes Canon e Nikon.

Para isso a E-M1X vem equipada com dois processadores TruePic VIII…

…estabilizador de imagem de 5 eixos com alcance de 7 pontos de exposição, disparador mecânico com autonomia estimada para ~400 mil disparos que podem chegar no modo contínuo a 15 qps ou até a 60 qps no modo eletrônico.

Duas vezes muita coisa

Além dos dois processadores de imagem, a nova E-M1X também conta com outros itens duplicados, como a capacidade de capturar imagens de altíssima resolução utilizando uma curiosa técnica onde a câmera tira 16 fotos de 20 MP…

… sendo que em cada uma delas o sensor de imagem se move 0,5 pixel para o lado…

que, depois são combinadas gerando assim uma imensa imagem de 50 MP de 8.160 x 17.486 pixels (veja mais exemplos aqui).

Essa técnica em si não é nova, tendo sido implementada pela primeira vez na Olympus OM-D EM-5 II de 2015. A novidade neste caso é que essas 16 imagens são capturadas em menos de 1 segundo, permitindo assim que essas fotos possam ser tiradas segurando a câmera na mão e sem o auxílio de um tripé.

Outra duplicidade também presente na sua antecessora é a existência de dois slots para cartões SD/SDHC/SDXC, incluindo o padrão UHS-II.

Novidade mesmo é o espaço para duas baterias do tipo BLH-1 (a mesma da EM-1 Mk II, o que aumenta a autonomia para aproximadamente 870 fotos (segundo padrão CIPA)…

… que, como nos smartphones, agora podem ser recarregadas (em até 2 horas) dentro da câmera por meio da sua porta USB-C (uia!).

E assim como nos smartphones, essa câmera já vem equipado com diversos sensores como acelerômetros, sensor de pressão, GPS e bússola eletrônica, além de interfaces sem fio como Wi-Fi e Bluetooth.

Mister Big

Talvez a mudança mais visível desse novo modelo é o fato dessa câmera ser a primeira OM-D a vir com grip vertical totalmente integrado ao chassis de magnésio, algo por sinal também necessário para abrigar as duas baterias…

O que aumentou as dimensões do seu corpo para 14,4 x 14,7 x 7,5 cm (LxAxP) e 992 gramas de peso (com as baterias) — bem mais que os 13,4 x 9,09 x 6,9 cm e 498 gramas do seu antecessor:

Este ganho de peso e volume é a maior idiossincrasia dessa câmera, já que a promessa original do sistema Micro Four Thirds era de oferecer um sistema de câmera e lente mais compacto totalmente novo e livre de compromissos com o passado.

Como já disse o Henrique em um post nosso de 2008:

“o Micro Four Thirds System permitirá aos usuários ter imagens de alta qualidade geradas pelos sensores 4/3 do Four Thirds em uma câmera com corpo mais compacto, além de poder usar lentes mais compactas, principalmente as grande angulares e de zoom estendido. Vai tornar possí­vel desenvolver câmeras com lentes intercambiáveis ultracompactas. O aumento no número de contatos elétricos na baioneta vai permitir novos recursos e um aumento nas funcionalidades do sistema no futuro.”

Mas de um certo modo, o que a Olympus faz nesse caso é apenas atender a demanda de um certo público que precisa de equipamentos que sejam práticos e versáteis no seu uso.

E quem desejar algo mais dentro do espírito original do Micro Four Thirds pode optar pela linha Olympus Pen com destaque para a belíssima e estilosa Olympus Pen-F:

Preço e disponibilidade

A nova câmera já pode ser encontrada em pré-venda no varejo eletrônico dos EUA — como a Amazon.com — pelo preço sugerido de US$ 3.000 com previsão de entrega entre os dias 22~25 de fevereiro de 2019.

Vale a pena observar que esse valor é ~50% maior que o cobrado pela sua antecessora — o modelo OM-D E-M1 Mark II — na época do seu lançamento (~US$ 2.000), que acreditamos que deve ficar no mercado por mais algum tempo como uma alternativa menor e mais em conta que o E-M1X.

Falando nisso, junto com este anúncio de hoje a Olympus aproveitou a deixa para também anunciar que para comemorar os 100 anos da fundação da empresa, o pessoal de Shinjuku vai lançar uma edição especial da E-M1 Mark II na cor prata, limitada a apenas 2.000 unidades:

O curioso é que a Olympus America já está aceitando encomendas dessa câmera na sua lojinha pela bagatela de US$ 1.699, o mesmo preço da sua versão regular na cor preta, algo notável para uma edição limitada.

Talvez seja por isso que esse modelo já esgotou na Amazon.com.

E o Brasil? Apesar de a Olympus já ter tido uma maior presença por aqui (inclusive com uma lojinha online), essa iniciativa meio que virou fumaça desde o sério escândalo financeiro que quase acabou com a empresa em 2012.

Uma pena.
