Additional OM System OM-1 Coverage
The Olympus OM-1 camera processing power offers room to grow in terms of future firmware updates. At a recent 2022 CP+ presentation OM Digital commented that the new Olympus OM-1 camera still has room to grow in terms of future firmware updates based on the updated camera processor:
“It seems that the engine has “still” room to grow. At the time of the meeting, I asked the development staff, but the deep learning computing power is 60 times that of the previous ones, and it has not been used up yet. Isn’t there firmware (update)? You said that there is still room for development, so I would like to look forward to future evolution in the same way as everyone else. * Slightly simplified what we are talking about”
