These are some of the things that Setsuya Kataoka, director of the Olympus OM-D series, talks about in an interview with Fotosidan. Setsuya Kataoka responsible for Olympus product planning and leading the development of the OM-D series. We meet him in connection with the launch of the Olympus E-M5 Mark II, but our discussion will quickly into the future. The image sensor determines the image quality and the features of a camera can provide. Setsuya Kataoka says that E-M5 Mark II has a new sensor compared to the E-M5. The new sensor will enable a silent electronic shutter. - Even if we try to be creative so put the sensor limits of what we can do. We come with desires to the sensor manufacturer, but do not always get what we wanted. I can say so much that we are going higher resolution come. Other items on the wish list are higher dynamic range, possibly through multiple readouts from the sensor and global shutter. Thus a sensor that can read out all pixels simultaneously. A global shutter would eliminate the problems associated with an electronic shutter, which jello-effects when filming. Setsuya Kataoka out that a global shutter would enable faster continuous shooting, but not necessarily provide faster autofocus. Extraordinary lenses Olympus has focused heavily on getting a pro series with weather sealed lens that matches the top model E-M1. Right now considering Olympus whether to develop a super telephoto high brightness, or a super-telephoto zoom with a little lower brightness. When the pro series is getting full, it may be necessary to develop a bit more specialized or extraordinary lens, such as lens with ultra-high brightness. When asked if it is possible to come up with tilt / shift lens screws Setsuya Kataoka at himself and says: - Not even Canon and Nikon are selling very many tilt / shift lens. Sales of cameras and lenses drops. In order to strengthen its economy going Olympus Camera developers to begin working with developers in other parts of the group, such as the medical business. Things to do more niche products is one way to increase profitability, but Setsuya Kataoka out that it is difficult for Olympus to develop a niche camera that Nikon DF and take properly paid. This is because Olympus has a smaller price range up to the top model than Canon and Nikon. Instead, focus Olympus accessories. We always try to have a systems approach, he says. I ask Setsuya Kataoka if there is no lens which he is particularly proud of. He delivers the answer with a broad smile: 40-150 mm f / 2.8 Pro. - When I ordered the lens from the development and specified cost limits, I did not think the picture quality would be so high as it was. Self he uses most 12mm f / 2nd New features at once Setsuya Kataoka highlights like to Olympus advanced image stabilization. New OM-D E-M5 Mark II has received the same 5-axis image stabilization as the E-P1. Now working with the Olympus how they can take advantage of image stabilization in more ways. In the E-M5 Mark II used image stabilization to move the sensor half a pixel for each exposure, thus increasing the resolution to 40 megapixels. In the future it may be necessary with a feature that enables you to astro-photography. Pentax has today such a function. With the 7D Mark II Canon introduced a technique that reduces the influence of flashing lamps. The camera analyzes flashes and avoid releasing the shutter when the lamp flashes. Setsuya Kataoka says that Olympus looking at a similar anti-flicker solution. Finally, I ask how the collaboration with Panasonic looks. Setsuya Kataoka mean they do not cooperate on product development. It's just about the need to make changes in the basic MFT system as they make contact.
