Olympus has announced their intention to sell its imaging division to Japanese Industrial Partners (JIP) by the end of the year. Olympus says the newly formed entity will continue making camera equipment and providing support to existing Olympus camera owners.


However, many people are dubious that Olympus, in its current state, will survive. Some critics are citing all sorts of economic stressors, as well as a decline in traditional camera sales that may spell doom for the brand. This move also calls into question the future of the micro-four-thirds format.

Rob Knight is an Olympus Educator as well as a talented travel photographer who has built his business on the back of micro-four-thirds cameras.

Rob is optimistic about what the future Olympus might look like. Watch this interview to find out why.
