Olympus wants to launch world’s first Micro Four Thirds “Lens-Camera-Drone”!

opc_project51

Olympus plans to make the first “Lens-Camera-Drone” it’s basically a Micro Four Thirds mount module with integrated sensor where you can attach the rotor on top. There are no info yet if that idea will ever make it into a real mass product. But so far the specs of the module are mentioned by Olympus itself:

Android ios
– 16 megapixel sensor. No info if it’s E-M1 (with PDAF) or E-M5 (without PDAF) alike.
- Connected by WiFi
- takes both stills and videos
Optical / digital zoom, configurable for various shooting parameters
Save Allowed still images in RAW or JPEG format
Micro Four Thirds mount

This could become the smallest drone ever made? Not sure yet that thing can fly really well :) There are other parts that have to be added to make it fly properly!
