In 1959, Olympus
Cameras changed the face of photography by
pursuing one simple idea: create a camera as easy to use and carry as a
pen. Designed by renowned style guru Yoshihisa Maitani, the Olympus Pen
triggered a camera boom that would last through the end of the 1970s.
Today the legend comes alive again in digital form with the release of
the E-P1. This first groundbreaking Olympus Micro Four Thirds model
comes at a time when mirrors are no longer a necessary component for
digital cameras with interchangeable lenses. Incredibly small size,
retro style, and ease of use are a nod to the Pen’s past.
However, D-SLR quality and a host of new features place the E-P1 at the
leading edge as Olympus innovative technologies reimagine the future.
Now everyone can have the best of both worlds: high-end design and
