(Short-term) confidentiality release date = certification date + 180 days. That's the FCC rule for the items which are temporarily confidential (e.g. pictures and user manual).

27 July 2020 ==> 24 January 2021.

The first Japanese SLR.

There were SLR cameras (field cameras) at the beginning of the 20th century.

As for the first SLR with pentaprism, the Rectaflex and Contax S cameras predate the AP by almost ten years.

Indeed, I presume JIP will drastically change the business model of the former Olympus Imaging. Source products from ODMs for instance instead of developing and manufacturing them (what Olympus already do for their Tough cameras).

Firmware updates for K-3, K-1, and K-1 II for better compatibility with new DFA*85

Ah OK, phase-detection autofocus, not contrast autofocus.

In other words, depending on the AF module, a firmware update is necessary or not.

Your former sentence including the 'not' was therefore correct: "The relation is therefore not to be found in LV mode use."

Considering that @Zygonyx and his interlocutor are French, I propose we suspend this in-depth analysis of the English translation until @Zygonyx gets back to us, possibly with the original statement in French. :)

^ Zygonyx and I are French, therefore not completely at ease (I for one am not) with these subtleties. My point remains anyway: there is no such thing as a contrast-AF sensor or contrast-AF sensor reference. The whole imaging sensor is used for contrast autofocus. Furthermore, K-3 and K-3 II share the same imaging sensor, yet one needs updates and the other does not.

That's odd because there is no such thing as contrast autofocus sensors. The whole imaging sensor is used for contrast autofocus, there are no dedicated pixels like those for on-sensor phase detection autofocus (or the dedicated autofocus module for a DSLR in optical viewfinder mode).

Thank you for this information. However, I don't understand: isn't contrast autofocus precisely used in live view mode?

Did you mean phase autofocus sensors?

Olympus will sell their Imaging business to Japan Industrial Partners

Kimio Tanaka answered that. He wrote that, a couple of years ago, Olympus approached various camera companies with a view to selling Imaging. Nobody was interested. Olympus therefore decided to keep their Imaging business even though it was making losses. Further down the road (Tanaka-san doesn't say so, but one can suppose that ValueAct Capital kept on urging/demanding Olympus management to find a solution), Olympus came to term with selling Imaging to their 'cousins' JIP (same keiretsu), to whom they sold their mobile phone retail business back in 2012.

Note the oddly high price then paid by JIP for a loss-making retail business. This might have been a 'friendly contribution' to the funding and balance sheet restoration Olympus was in dire need of in 2012. Sony took their share of the burden by subscribing to a dedicated increase in Olympus's capital.

Again, remember that Olympus, JIP and Sony belong to the same keiretsu.
