Olympus follows Sony’s steps and presents an external sensor for mobile phones.

Sony’s QX started a curious family of external camera modules that allowed to increase photographical capacities of our smartphones at the expense of carrying with an additional device to the phone itself. The company launched more than one series, including a model with an APS-C sensor. Even the mythic Kodak dared with its own model.

Now Olympus climbs into the car and launches its Olympus Air, a module with a 16 megapixels sensor with a micro 4/3 format and support for the company’s objectives.

The pack by default includes an objective of 14-42 mm with an aperture that goes from f/3.5 to f/5.6 for a price of 430 dollars. If we already own objectives from the company, we’ll be able to purchase a module for about 290 dollars when it hits the market in a month, on March 6th.
