Reports of New Olympus Large Sensor Compact Camera Become Stronger

There have been stories going around and whispers of a large sensor compact camera from Olympus coming soon for a while now, but 43rumors has reason to believe that the camera is going to be much like the Ricoh GR. While this seems a bit unlikely, it’s still very interesting due to the fact that these reports have been going around for a while now and Panasonic launched one with the LX100. While that camera had a zoom lens, it only makes sense that Olympus would try to release something with a solid, fixed prime lens.

The reports state that this upcoming camera will be very much like the old Olympus Trip film camera–if it does indeed exist and comes out. This makes quite a bit of sense as Olympus has tried to create digital versions of their historically successful cameras like the Pen and the OM series.

While the Ricoh GR has an APS-C sensor, we believe that the company may instead opt for a Four Thirds sensor with retro ergonomics and maybe with one of their current lenses already attached. Their 12mm f2, 17mm f1.7, and 25mm f1.8 are all quite small and on the OMD camera make for an awesome compact package. It’s bound to be loaded with art filters and have a couple of accessories to make it look even sexier as a complete package plus include WiFi transmission to make it a better travel camera.

If it is indeed real, Fujifilm and Panasonic may have a major contender to look out for.
