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.

Patent Details (Translated)

In an imaging device having a plurality of imaging pixels and a plurality of focus detection pixels in which the position of the opening of the light receiving unit is shifted relative to the imaging pixels,
The focus detection pixels of the first focus detection pixel group including a plurality of focus detection pixels having different positions of the openings, which are shifted in the first direction, correspond to the first color filters of the imaging pixels. Are arranged at the first pixel pitch in the first direction for each focus detection pixel where the position of the opening is different,
The focus detection pixels of a second focus detection pixel group including a plurality of focus detection pixels whose openings are shifted in a second direction different from the first direction and whose positions of the openings are different from the first detection pixels of the imaging pixels. At positions corresponding to second color filters different in color from color filters of 1, each of the focus detection pixels with different positions of the apertures is arranged at the second pixel pitch in the second direction.

Blur correction device

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a shake correction device that enables a movable part to be drawn toward a stationary part with appropriate force without weighting the movable part, and enables efficient and stable operation.SOLUTION: A shake correction according to an embodiment has: a first stationary part that includes a magnet; a second stationary part that includes a yoke forming a magnetic circuit between the magnet and the yoke; and a movable part that is arranged between the first stationary part and the second stationary part. A plurality of rolling elements is provided between the first stationary part and the movable part, and the movable part is movable toward a surface direction. The movable part is provided with a coil facing the magnet, a magnetic material constituting a magnetic spring between the magnet and the magnetic material, and a driven member. The magnetic spring generates magnetic suction force that draws the movable part to the first stationary part.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 4
