OM Digital Solutions – the new owners of what used to be the Olympus camera division – has registered a new camera, codenamed “IM024” in China. According to the registration, it’s equipped with 2.4Ghz WiFi and Bluetooth, but there isn’t much other information besides that yet.
Exactly what is coming is unknown, although OM Digital Solutions has repeatedly said that they want to invigorate the brand and has plans to release “many” new products in 2021. We might even see a lean towards video, which is something JIP stated last September before the transition to OM Digital was completed.
Nokishita posted a screenshot of the registration to Twitter, with the translated caption reading “OM Digital Solutions’ unreleased digital camera “IM024″ has been registered in MIIT, China. Equipped with Wi-Fi (2.4GHz) and Bluetooth.”.
Just as vague as what we might see (beyond the fact that it has WiFi and Bluetooth) is when we might see it. But I would hope that now it’s been registered, we might see something within the next few months.
What features would you want to see in a new “Olympus” body?
