    You cannot take 8K video on a MFT sensor with just 33 MP. MFT has a 4:3 aspect ratio. So given a 1920 with the height would need to be 1440.

    8K needs some 32 MP in its own aspect ratio. This would equate to about 43 MP if expanded vertically to fill the 4:3 ratio.

    I hope one day we can see dslr with built in gimbal mecanism that can be turned on/off. yes, I know, I am dreaming… or not that much? 😀

    Looks like Olympus hasn’t done their math or aren’t actually going to be offering 8K at all. 8K is a 16:9 format so with a 4:3 sensor format the resolution has to be a lot higher than the nominal 33MP.
