"Olympus has issued a press release confirming JK Imaging and four other companies have formally signed-up to the Micro Four Thirds standard. JK Imaging announced last week that it would be offering MFT cameras under the Kodak brand. Australian company Blackmagic Design, which already offers a movie camera with a passive Micro Four Thirds mount and is rumored to be working on a fully compliant version, also joins. The other three signatories are less consumer-facing.

Like Astrodesign, announced as joining in January 2012, Photron, ViewPlus and Sys-Vistek aren't looking to make cameras for the general public. Photron builds high-speed cameras for scientific and industrial research, while Sys-Vistek makes cameras used for the machine vision field (systems to provide visual input to machine and computer systems - such as automatically visually monitoring industrial processes). Finally, ViewPlus creates products that integrate sophisticated cameras and processing techniques to provide live feeds of two and three dimensional video."


I think this is good news. What do you think.

JK Imaging, Blackmagic Design and others join Micro Four Thirds

What I was most struck by was the fact only Oly made the announcement, not Panasonic. So were these deals done by way of Oly alone and no hand by Panasonic? It was interesting reading the announcement with only Panny getting noted as being a part of the m4/3 consortium similar to how it was during the 4/3 days.
