The Olympus E-P1 Micro Four Thirds rangefinder-style camera (and Gizmodo lust object) has revealed itself in an official, full-frontal shot, accompanied by some iffy specs.

According to 43rumors, the E-P1 will shoot 720p video, and retail for just under $1000:

SD storage
13MP RAW, JPEG, and RAW+JPEG modes
1280×720 video for 7 minutes at a time (presumably due to sensor heat)
640×480 video for 14 minutes
3" LCD with Liveview
ISO 200-6400
Shutter speed 60sec-1/4000sec

All we know for sure is, the styling is a bit more retro-sexy than expected, thankfully, and an official (Japanese) announcement is due tomorrow. [43Rumors, Akihabara]

I'm liking where this is going. Hopefully other camera makers with bigger sensors open up a line like this. Canon would be good for me.
