Olympus to Enter the Action Camera Market?

The latest Olympus rumor is not about the full frame sensors or their rumored PEN-F camera, but an action camera.

If the report on 4/3 Rumors is correct, Olympus will announce a new “action camera” on January 27, 2016. Currently, we don’t have any leaked images or specs, but the rumors said that the new action camera would be compatible with all standard GoPro accessories.

We know that Nikon announced the new line of action camera “KeyMission 360” at CES 2016 – a compact and rugged action camera that features dual lenses and image sensors to capture full 360° video and photos in UHD 4K resolution. This allows you to relive your adventures from every angle and share new and unique perspectives with family, friends, and fans.

Although I am not really into action cameras, I am curious to see what’s the new features of the Olympus action camera, so that Olympus can compete against GoPro and Nikon.
