Who is Fuji working with to make the Hybrid Viewfinder?

Image courtesy: Quesabesde

Iker Morán from Quesabesde made an Interview with Hiroshi Kawahara, Operations Manager at Fujifilm Electronic Imaging Products Division and one of the designers of the FinePix X100.

Why an APS-C sized sensor instead of one with smaller dimensions, like in the case of the Micro Four Thirds cameras, which would have enabled you to reduce the size of the camera?
Although the size of the camera is not a fundamental aspect in this type of model, we designed the FinePix X100 under the concept “co-existence of compact size and high-quality”. From the viewpoint of image quality, the APS-C system has a clear advantage over Micro Four Thirds (in particular, high sensitivity and low noise). Also, for obtaining a beautiful soft focus background “bokeh” effect, APS achieves beautiful result. For these reasons, we chose an APS-C sized sensor.

But that is the most interesting part:

At Photokina we tried a pre-production unit of the X100 and one of the things we liked most was the “hybrid viewfinder”. Is this your own technology or will we see it in future cameras of other companies?
Fujifilm is the first company to use a hybrid system viewfinder and we did this because we thought it was the best option for this type of product. We cannot say whether other companies are going to follow in our footsteps, but in view of the speed with which other manufacturers’ technology is currently adopted, it’s possible this might happen.

So the question know is Fuji working with on the Hybrid Viewfinder technology development?, Maybe with Panasonic or Olympus?
