The following video presents FourThirds Digital Camera standard it’s concept and overview:
A video on the FourThirds Digital SLR camera standard. An overview of the concept and ideal behind the Fourthirds systems.
“Digital SLR cameras incorporate more components between the lens and the image sensing material than film SLR cameras, such as the image stabilizer, dust reduction mechanism and low-pass filter. Also, since the viewfinder of an SLR camera requires a mirror box for viewing the real image, the flange back needs to be longer to accommodate the mirror box. Compact cameras do not use the mirror box, so don’t require a long flange back. These factors have made it difficult to design SLR cameras that are as slim and compact as compact cameras. However, if a digital SLR camera can be designed to exclusively use Live View for shooting, the mirror box is no longer necessary and the camera can be designed with the kind of slim profile previously considered impossible, without compromising the high picture quality.”
“The Micro Four Thirds System standard maintains the Four Thirds System concept of “High-picture quality digital-dedicated design,” but focuses on reducing overall system thickness and size by aiming for a highly portable compact system.
The Micro Four Thirds System also embodies our ongoing efforts to expand the Four Thirds System-based standards to meet future needs such as movie compatibility, to improve the comfort of Live View shooting and to increase the usability of existing Four Thirds System interchangeable lenses.”
Olympus Imaging Corp. and Panasonic Corporation jointly announced the Micro Four Thirds System standard in 2008 and have since been working together to promote the standard.
Now Olympus announces that five more companies have recently declared their support for the standard and will be introducing products compliant with the Micro Four Thirds System standard.
