OM Digital Solutions, the company that bought the Olympus camera division, has teased its forthcoming OM System Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera on its CP+ 2022 webpage.

As spotted by DC Life, OM Digital Solutions' landing page for its CP+ 2022 information, the company highlights six cameras in a montage: five Olympus cameras that have been released over the years and a newer-looking camera that’s hiding in the shadows, so to speak. Based on the visual information provided, it does appear to be an entirely new device, although it seems to be very similar in design to the company’s E-M1 Mark III and E-M1X, at least based on the top plate.

A closer look at the unreleased camera.

OMDS has said its forthcoming mirrorless camera will ‘Wow’ the photography world and if you look a little closer at the events OM Digital Solutions is expected to have at CP+ 2022, we can surmise a few other details from at least two of the events.

The first is a presentation from photographer Koichiro Saito on February 24 that will see the artist talk about ‘the new dawn of OM System.’ Whether this means the launch of the new camera will coincide with CP+ 2022 remains to be seen, but it would be strange to dedicate a talk about the company’s future camera technology without having one in hand.

There will also be another event with photographer Takanori Sugawara on February 26 titled ‘Birds of Japan Captured with Advanced Bird Recognition AF.’ This clearly suggests the new camera will have some kind of bird-specific AI autofocus mode onboard.

Considering CP+ 2022 is just around the corner, we should know more by the end of the month, if indeed the camera is to be released by then.
