Olympus interview at Focus Numerique: Says 8k and handheld high-rez mode are coming on future MFT cameras.


Mr. Akira Watanabe, General Manager Global Marketing Dept.

Focus Numerique (google translation here) interviewed Mr. Akira Watanabe and Mr. Toshiyuki Terada from Olympus. Here are some key insights:

  1. 8K video:
    we can assure you that there is no problem in developing sensors at 33 million pixels for filming in 8K.We started the 4/3″ saga with a sensor at 5 Mpx In 2003. Now the same sensor is at 20 Mpx with a much higher image quality especially for the management of electronic noise.”
  2. Nikon snapbridge clone:
    The Nikon Bluetooth technology is actually very interesting…this is a direction we will study.”
  3. Further image stabilization improvements:
    Olympus has the tech to increase the image stabilization performance on future cameras.Because they know how to distinguish earths rotation movement from the photographers movement :)
  4. Handheld High Resolution mode:
    “I think this is a feature we can offer in the future”
  5. About Metalens tech:
    “It is a technology that will not be used in the near future”
