OlympusMicro Four Thirds camera system showcased at PMA Show : During last year’s Photokina 2008 in Germany, the Micro FourThirds system was jointly introduced by Olympus and Panasonic. And although Panasonic pocketed the gain during the Photokina by introducing the Panasonic LUMIX G1 digital camera, Olympus was not forgotten, and curiosity about the plans of Olympus with this system stayed on. At the opening, Olympus showed a Micro FourThirds design concept to the international press, and afterwards to the public, with the announcement that this kind of concept belongs to the possibilities, but that it does not necessarily equal the end-product.

This announcement did not exactly clarify things. That said, the Micro Four Thirds concept did raise high expectations; or at least, it did for me. In the Olympus booth at the PMA 2009 Show in Las Vegas we find the Micro FourThirds concept camera model. It is showcased behind glass and no different from what we saw at last year's presentation. The extra announcement Olympus makes is that the first Olympus Micro FourThirds camera is expected in the summer of this year.

Worth mentioning is that the popular Japanese magazine DC Watch had an interview with Akira Watanabe, Senior Manager Digital SLR Product Strategy Department Olympus Imaging Corporation, during which one of the possible specifications could be a new built-in image stabilizer for the new Olympus cameras, which will be similar to the newly developed Olympus E-620 (See Olympus E-620 Las Vegas photo gallery), but with a smaller form factor.
