OM Digital Global Marketing Eiji Shirota has been interviewed by Japanese youtuber Gizmomo. First he explained why they decided to stick to the 20MP resolution (google translated):
- The problem with changing the sensor this time was that the sensor has changed significantly by greatly increasing the resolution.
- The other is to increase high sensitivity resistance and noise resistance.
- Regarding the resolution, I was thinking of improving the number of pixels, but on the other hand, there were overwhelmingly many requests for better noise immunity, so I decided to maintain the number of pixels.
At the same time OM Digital manager made it clear that they are of course considering to make future OM cameras with 8K recording capabilities.
