Latest Olympus patents (


Our collueges from find out some new Olympus patents.

Can someone explain me the DIGITAL CAMERA SYSTEM patent?

  • Bu

    It implies for example, waving your hand in front of the camera will activate the camera to take a photo.

  • Edvian

    After reading some of the small print it seems that the “operator” has a rather powerful remote control on his body, and this remote will control the camera that the operator touches (very “natural” addressing procedure). Several operators can use the same camera and have personal settings. In a similar way, the pictures can be transferred to a PC storage just by touching the camera and the PC. There is also talk about a remote flash unit, but it’s unclear to me how it will point in the correct direction… The paper mentions “convenience” and “authentication” as main points, and also “industrial application”.
