Little Island Media:Check out this promotional video that I shot with the GH5 using 1080p/60 10 bit All-I. The 10 bit footage was unbelievably solid, colors where pushed to the extreme, skin tones were also tweaked extensively yet the robust codec was able to hold everything together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYogQ_VtmnU&t=78s

Olympus Q2 financial report: Strong OMD sales help to achieve growth


Click on image to enlarge

Olympus posted the Q2 financial report. Both the company as a whole and the Imaging Division did better than expected. This is what Olympus had to say about the camera business:

Strong sales growth of 19% centered on OMD series in mirrorless camera field, contributing to overall higher revenue in Imaging Business despite substantial decrease in compact camera sales.
Operating profit: Substantial increase in profitability achieved through larger ratio of sales from high margin, high-end mirrorless cameras and effective management of iexpenses
Operating profit of ¥1.6 billion posted in comparison to operating loss of ¥1.4 billion in previously equivalent period, making for operating profit margin of 5.3%

Good to know they are finally back making profit on their business. But they need to keep releasing new high-end model in 2018 too. It really sounds like this is the only way to keep profitability.
