Less saturation the better.

Contacted for comment? Umm....they commented. It was a whole press release. It said no prints no more.

(unknown member): I think the future of four thirds would be the same as smartphone tech. Add CP and IA to the cameras. My phone takes some very good low light portraits by combining images and removing motion blur form subjects. And it can digitally zoom (a little) and not lose detail. Even the addition of background blur is getting closer to looking real and some day will be indistinguishable.
But the current companies do not have the budget or the technology of Apple, Google, or Huawei. And that is a shame.
So small crop cameras will go the way of P&S cameras. Smartphones will be used more and more for enthusiast and some professional photography. And we'll be left with a contracting market of large FF cameras.

Nonsense. Both m43 camera bodies and the lenses are consistently and often substantially cheaper to comparable FF optics.

And they are often better. And smaller.

(unknown member): The website does not give me any confidence in the future of this brand.

No money has been invested in preparing a relaunch, if this sad little website is anything to go by. They do not even seem interested in pretending, to relaunch the brand.

My hunch is that existing stock will be sold off, stuff in production in Vietnam will be produced, and then it will be curtains when the parts bins are empty.

My EM5 seemed so revolutionary back in 2013, they had a lot of influential bloggers behind the format. It really did seem like the future in camera equipment with that brilliant IBIS. Things seem to have gradually slipped into oblivion from those heady days.

Sad, they really did not understand the strength of the format. The huge heavy 2.8 zooms are heavier than the equivalents I have for my Nikon Z7.

When I realised a Z7 +24-200 weighed the same as a EM1iii + 12-100, I knew the format had no future, and I sold all my M43 gear just in time.

Nonsense. Oly and Panasonic are not the only consumers of m43 sensors not and ILC are not the only application for them.

Theyre buying m43 cameras and lenses to.

Who said they were going to "relaunch the brand?"

Lol. You just made that up.

What are Live Composite. Live ND. HDR. HiRes. In camera Focus Stacking?

Computational photography. Most camera systems already have them and one has all them.

WolfpackN64: That's too bad.
While I don't doubt the Thai factory's ability to produce to the same standards as the Sendai factory, the fact that they relocate all production to Thailand is just admitting they want to pay less to get their products made. Nikon might not have much of a choice, but it goes to show the economics of consumer electronics are simply broken, where people are paid near or under living wage to produce high tech luxury products (in the case of iPhone production in India for example).

Somehow I dont those Thai workers with new jobs and work flow feel the same way.

BrentSchumer: It seems weird to shift production over 350 employees. Unless this is a prelude to selling off or shutting down the camera division without running afoul of Japanese labor laws...

Its what Olympus did a year before they sold.

BackToNature1: Is this an Precursor to Nikon eventually exiting the Camera Business, sooner than later?

Its comparable to what Olympus did about a year before they sold.

Fotoni: Developed country citizens do not want to pay the price of fair wages, so less developed country citizens pay the difference in their wages. Global trading is right now the abuse of less fortunate which have no position for demands. It is a lesser form of global slavery. Also some companies are just greedy and make the transfer to have additional profits.

Japanese car brands used to be great value because of high durability and this was because they were made in Japan. I'm not quite sure that durability exists today when made elsewhere. Same goes for quality batteries and this area has a huge growth because of electric cars.

It is not always just poor lives, but the nature will also suffer more locally, so that some "green" people can live in their eco-friendly bubble and forget what they cannot see directly. Transferring pollution to the other side of the planet does not solve the problem.

Nonsense. Its also an opportunity for emerging countries to advance and to lift standards of living they would not otherwise have.

the_litl_prince: Looking at all of the brands, it's getting more and more difficult to make a case TO PURCHASE anything other than Sony. I expect the next 5 years will be rough for Nikon, Panasonic and Fuji. Sony has a strangle hold with the sensor game and they are refining the whole system including format interchange with the lenses. Canon is a great system but why would you purchase when the sensors aren't as good and the system cost is at least 30% higher. Sony look very determined to crush their competitors. The a7siii finally addressed the ergonomics and menu system with more cameras on the way.

Laughable

Albert Valentino: The other day I purchased a Olympus EM1 mark III. Does everything I want and lots more. This camera could last me through the decade, especially with a mechanical shutter rating of 400,000. Well,no surprise it did not make the cut into any of the above categories but the same can be said with many other great cameras. Actually, there really are no bad cameras. The means the weak link is the photographers skill, not their gear 😉

They have a one dimensional mindset. The Oly Mark III is ridiculously impressive camera.

dpfan32: When I look at the tennis player the image I falling apart at ISO 1600.
But it is just my taste.
If I bought a used OM-D E-M10 for 150 EUR form eBay this may be forgivable but a camera for 3000 EUR should produce no less than wonders in terms of image quality.

While delivering excellent image quality.

ojos azules: Why on earth would anyone want this?

I cant figure out why anyone wants to lug around giant larger format systems with bulky tripods when all they offer are marginal IQ improvements shooting fast moving objects in the dark. And marginally better AF for $$$$$ more.

Mateus1: Terrible high iso performance, even 3200. For sports this is a mistake.

Pity Olympus did not put some of that RR money for Pen-F mkII.

Gibberish. It has very good IQ at 3200-6400.

sbu: The really interesting observation here is all the angst this camera generates among full frame shooters. And this camera in just a tiny niche in the mft world. They probably realise that with the dawn of computational photography and smartphone photography the age of large sensors are coming to a conclusion.

All caps. That's not what the release states. They intend to have gear and services available in the photographers room. And I suspect they will have quite a few takers.

That cam is better suited to shoot that subject that anything on the market. Speed, subject specific AI AF , maximum portability and great IQ under daylight conditions. FF offers nothing but bulk and tripods.

1. Look at any high iso mag pick from the M1X and theres no noise up to iso 6400. E.g. PDN mag inside cover image is iso 5000 sports shot and there is treo noise.

2. Virtually any electronic format, phone, monitor,TV is not going to show noise at similar isos when down read for display.

These statements are pointless. They dont matter.
