This is the time of year when folks reveal their thoughts of the future… so I thought it may be fun to publish my 2022 camera predictions. These may be somewhat different than what you may find on other photography websites. 🙂
This article provides a World Photography Day overview and shares some thoughts on the various sessions that were live streamed. If you did not have the opportunity to view any of the live stream sessions held yesterday during the World Photography Day, you can still view them online. Links are provided throughout this article.
Today is World Photography Day, and OM Digital Solutions is holding a range of live streams delivered by Olympus ambassadors and technical experts.
Now that the transfer of the Olympus Imaging division has been completed, thoughts about OM Digital for 2021 may be appropriate. Whenever a large company with activities in a multitude of global markets changes ownership there are a number of actions that need to be taken.
As camera manufacturers release their quarterly financial reports it is instructive to look for comments about product mix and profitability. Shifting a company’s product mix is an important strategy to increase average per unit contribution margin and potentially increase related profitability.
As some of you may already be aware, the Olympus JIP agreement for the transfer of the Olympus Imaging division has been reached. No doubt there will be all kinds of speculation and the Olympus haters will be out in full force. I will do my best to provide readers with factual information as it becomes available.
Recently an interesting JIP interview with Shinichi Inagaki, the Japan Industrial Partners executive in charge of the acquisition of the Olympus imaging business, was published by Toyo Keizai Online. I thought readers may like to see this interview so I have provided a link to the corresponding Photo Rumors article.
I would suggest that you take some time to read this interview as it contains some very interesting information. My observations about the content in this interview follow later in this article.
Earlier today Olympus Corporation announced that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with Japan Industrial Partners, Inc. (JIP) to carve-out Olympus’s Imaging Business.
I just received some updated information from Olympus on its M.Zuiko Lens Road Map. A copy of that road map is displayed below.
There has been some recent postings about Olympus. Specifically the rumour about the imminent closing of its camera division. The purpose of this article is to provide readers with some additional information on Olympus that they can consider.
