Faster high resolution mode?

Now this does sound very interesting.
It seems the Olympus IBIS is very refined and is soon to take another step.
Perhaps we may see this in the E-M1 MKII or the body afterwards.

Very interesting Huw. I must admit, I assumed that the sensor shift was being done by some piezo-devices rather than the IBIS itself. Making sensor movements of 0.0002mm is pretty insane stuff really. Mind boggling in fact.

Re: Faster high resolution mode?

I wouldn't mind betting they already have a platform doing this.
Actually it's mind boggling that the IBIS could dynamically compensate for movements of the photographer, sensed by accelerometers and then further shift the sensor.... extremely quickly.
I guess we're looking at a very 'active' sensor shift.

Re: Faster high resolution mode?

Fascinating!
Presumably this would also make the system more tolerant of image movement, which would make it a lot more interesting to me.

Very interesting insight into the workings at Olympus. The level control they are looking for is truly amazing. Hope they can make such delicate technology robust.

I agree but its goig to cost a lot for us with the present cameras. It sounds somehow to be too good to be true though.

Until the E-M5 came out the sensor shift actuation was done using supersonic wave actuators based on the same Olympus-developed ideas behind SWD focusing and the SSWF sensor cleaning. But the E-M5 introduced voice coil actuators (think of audio speaker units but much much smaller). Pentax had been using these for their sensor shift IS for several years before Olympus. The E-M5 and E-M1 both had up to 4 EVs (CIPA standard, 5EVs according to Olympus in-house testing) of compensation available, with the E-M1 being a bit more refined. The E-M5 Mark 2 has been improved with better actuators and accelerometers so it now meets the CIPA standard for 5EVs compensation.

Not sure I understand the 'cost' point?

Re: Faster high resolution mode?

I've just listened to the latest TWiP podcast, during which the M5 II got a lot of positive comments. This from a group which, while very mirrorless-friendly, have not always been particularly well disposed to Olympus compared to Panasonic and Fuji.
