I think like Kodak, they assumed their name would be enough to survive on, and never really got the hang of making good digital cameras, and then with so many ppl happy to just use smart phones that was the end.

The low and mid-end camera market has basically disappeared. Not sure what Olympus could really do.

A definite shame.
I still have a lot of my old cameras and amongst them is an old Trip 35.
