The PEN story – Olympus PEN

Olympus PEN E-P1 Camera

The PEN story

Olympus have launched the new Olympus PEN compact digital camera. This coincides with the 50th anniversary of the launch of the original Olympus PEN in 1959.  I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these little cameras – just my sort of kit – small, compact, versatile and high quality.

To launch the new camera, Olympus have created the great little video below.

I’m told that to make this video, the Olympus team shot 50,000 pictures, processed 8,000 and shot again over 1,800 pictures. No post production, no videos taken with the camera!

The results I think are tremendous.
