Olympus manager Toshiyuki Terada interviewed

Bildschirmfoto 2016-03-03 um 16.26.22

Focus Numerique (google translation here) posted the interview with Olympus manager Toshiyuki Terada. As usual a couple of highlights:

  1. Why no large sensor fixed lens compact?
    We have limited human resources and we have to set priorities. And the reduction in the size ultimately would not be so important and above all, we need to differentiate ourselves from the competition and is where it’s tricky.
  2. About 4K:
    For now, the 4K is not indispensable and we have to find interesting features around the 4K before implanting.
  3. What is the most impressive or most outstanding technology?
    I was really impressed with the choice of Sony released a 24×36 sensor with 12MP only! Stabilization is also, for me, an important step. We introduced the 5-axis stabilization system and it is important in many areas: for slow speeds for telephoto zoom lenses and even video.
  4. Olympus main focus:
    If I had to summarize the position of Olympus, is to keep the quality of the optics while trying to provide maximum portability.
  5. High Resolution mode:
    “One of our wishes and to use the HR mode (High Resolution) freehand. It would be really interesting.
