Olympus Working on Advance Hybrid AF Sensor

The sensor is designed by a camera manufacturer but outsourced for fabrication to a third party, it is not quite the same as using a sensor from a third party, right? So, most of the camera makers including Fuji, Nikon and now even Canon does the same. In the New patent, Olympus is working to improve the Autofocusing system of the Hybrid sensors. The patent was granted on Feb of this year. We do hope and expect we will see a new generation of Hybrid AF Sensors in Upcoming Olympus Flagship cameras.

Olympus E-M1 Mark III camera images and Press Release Leaked

The images and the details of the Olympus E-M1 Mark III camera surfaced over . The camera have a redesigned sensor and a option to record handheld 50MP high resolution and world best image stabilization system upto 7.5 Stops (when combined with OIS lenses). More details in the press text below.

 

Olympus E-M1 Mark III Press Release

New image processing engine and 20.4 megapixel Live MOS sensor

In combination with the new image processing engine TruePic IX, a 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, and an extensive line-up of high-resolution M.Zuiko lenses, the 5-axis IS ensures minimal noise even at high-sensitivity settings and top-class image quality with minimal distortion up to the edges of the shot.
For users in need of higher resolutions, the 50MP Handheld High Res Shot feature makes it possible to capture approximately 50 Megapixel high-resolution images without using a tripod. The Tripod High Res Shot function allows for recording ultra-high-resolution (approx. 80 Megapixel equivalent) RAW and JPEG images.

World’s best image stabilization

When synchronizing the in-lens image stabilization of supported lenses with the in-body 5-axis image stabilization, the E-M1 Mark III achieves the worldÅfs best stabilization performance of 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation with 5-axis sync IS. This level of stabilization enables shooting in dark locations and during super-telephoto photography without a tripod, opening up new possibilities for photographers and filmmakers. Without sync IS, the in-body image stabilization ensures image stabilization with any attached Micro Four Thirds lens of up to 7.0 shutter speed steps compensation.

High-speed, high-precision autofocus

The OM-D E-M1 Mark III is equipped with a 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor for focusing on various areas of the screen. It offers 75% vertical coverage and 80% horizontal coverage of the screen for a wide focusing area. Paired with an advanced AF algorithm, this feature can continually focus on fast-moving subjects with a high degree of precision. Unlike DSLR cameras, there is no degradation in AF precision when using a fast lens. The E-M1 Mark III offers high-precision focusing that can sufficiently bring out the capabilities even of large-diameter lenses such as those with a maximum aperture of f1.2.
AF/AE tracking is possible at maximum of 18 fps high-speed sequential shooting while maintaining the full pixel count of 20.4 Megapixels. The subject can also be checked in the viewfinder during high-speed sequential shooting for accurate tracking.
A multi-selector makes it possible to quickly shift AF areas with your thumb while looking through the viewfinder. Because users can move the AF areas with the multi-selector during sequential shooting, it is possible to accurately focus even on subjects that move erratically, as e.g. often found in wildlife photography. The AF target loop setting is also added, which, based on user selection, either stops the AF target at the edge of the screen or moves it to the opposite edge.

Face Priority/Eye Priority AF

Face Priority / Eye Priority AF, which automatically detects and focuses on peopleÅfs faces and eyes, is now more advanced. The new image processor TruePic IX features higher processing capabilities and improved AF algorithms to better detect small faces and eyes, whilst keeping stable focusing on a subject even in situations where face detection was difficult in the past (such as e.g. focusing on the sides of faces). It is now also possible to use either the buttons or touch operations to select faces when shooting still images or videos, and detection on or off can be changed with the touch of a single button. Along with versatile video functions, this feature makes the E-M1 Mark III a great tool for vloggers.

Starry Sky AF

Starry Sky AF, which is new for the OM-D E-M1 Mark III, is a feature that will revolutionize the world of astrophotography. In the past, photographers have traditionally relied on manual focusing. A new algorithm was developed to enable accurate focusing even on the tiniest stars shining in the night sky, enabling ultra-high-precision autofocusing. One of two modes in Starry Sky AF is the Speed Priority mode (default setting), which prioritizes focusing speed and complete AF operations in a short period of time. Thanks to the powerful image stabilization, this feature makes handheld astrophotography possible using a wide-angle lens. The second mode Accuracy Priority uses a fine-tuned focus scan and is effective for shooting specific stars with telephoto lenses.

SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter)

With OlympusÅf advanced SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) technology (which vibrates the image sensor filter with an acceleration of several thousand G 30,000 times per second to powerfully shake off dust and dirt) and a new sensor coating introduced with the OM-D E-M1X, dirt cannot stick to the sensor, reducing spots in images to 1/10th of that in conventional models. The high-durability shutter unit in the E-M1 Mark III clears 400,000 operation tests and therefore offers a high level of reliability.

Handheld 4K video

The E-M1 Mark III features an IS mode specifically designed for video recording. Electronic stabilization combined with in-body 5-axis stabilization delivers powerful image stabilization particularly useful for videographers. This provides a high level of performance for handheld video content creation without using a tripod or other stabilizing device, even when shooting in high-resolution formats, which are susceptible to the effects of camera shake, such as 4K or Cinema 4K (C4K).
This model supports OM-Log400 shooting, which enables shooting without loss of details in shadows and highlights, along with color grading for a high degree of freedom over images. In order to make Live View images more visible, a View Assist function is available, which converts the color gamut to Full HD standard BT.709 equivalent for display.

Weather sealing

The rugged magnesium alloy body of the OM-D E-M1 Mark III features OlympusÅf acclaimed dust-, splash- and freezeproof design to allow for shooting in any location and environment.

Olympus apps and software

The OI.Share smartphone app can be used to connect to the camera via Wi-Fi, import shooting data to a smartphone, and to use the smartphone for remote camera operation. OI. Share can now also be used to update the camera firmware and backup and restore camera settings for the OM-D E-M1 Mark III.
Olympus Workspace can handle professional tasks such as RAW processing and image editing, along with offering a great deal of freedom over screen layout, etc. Connect a computer to the OM-D E-M1 Mark III via USB to enable high-speed RAW processing with Olympus Workspace using the new image processor TruePic IX. Clarity and Dehaze editing filters are included for a greater range of expression in astrophotography, etc.
By using Olympus Workspace Version 1.3, being released at the same time as the OM-D E-M1 Mark III, it makes it easy to replace the audio files of the recorded video to High res sound recorded by using Slate Tone on the LS-P4 / LS-100 while recording video.
This control software for computers meets the demands of studio photography. When using the software, live shooting results can be imported via Wi-Fi without using a USB connection, providing powerful support for the workflow of studio shooting. It supports high-speed 5 GHz band communication.

Olympus to Find New Life in Video Business ?

Olympus denied the report that they are shutting down their camera business. But, we all know they are losing camera market share as well as profit they make with the imagine department. When a leading Japanese newspaper asked about their future plans and current situation they said…

Future Plans for Extending imagine business and making profit ?

“To maximize Olympus’ corporate value, we need a video business today, but we can’t say for sure next year,” warns Olympus president Yasuo Takeuchi. “The ultimate deciding factor is whether it will be long-term corporate value.”

Why Olympus is still surviving ?

Still, the reason for continuing the business is “the relationship with the medical business,” says Shigemi Sugimoto, director of the Imaging Business.

Nevertheless, making the business profitable is still an important issue. Interchangeable lenses are key to improving profitability. “I would like a business where you can buy the body you need for lenses,” says Sugimoto.

We will update you soon as we get any new information.
