Olympus, founded in 1919, as part of their celebrations of this being their 100 year anniversary, has released a short documentary on Olympus cameras, including some history of where Olympus' design ideas and philosophies come from, and how Olympus has influenced the world of photography.  

The documentary features Pulitzer Prize-winning, and Olympus Visionary Photographer Jay Dickman, Olympus pioneers, and a used camera shop technician, including others at Olympus. 

Also included are the thoughts and design ideas behind the original half-frame Olympus PEN (in 1959), and the Olympus OM-1 35mm film SLR (in 1972), as well as the design process that goes in to the latest camera, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X
