Olympus E-P1 Pen

leave a comment »

Believe it or not I don’t own a point and shoot camera excluding my iPhone. I’ve been waiting for someone to put out a small interchangeable lens digital camera with a good sensor. I think Olympus has now done that with the E-P1. The E-P1 is not bigger than my Leica and from what I have heard online is just as quiet. Now, that’s what I am looking for.

Olympus sold a half frame camera beginning in 1959 though the 60s and this camera looks a lot like that film camera and they gave it the same name.

You can see info on the camera at Olympus and check out this PR video for the camera. I think it says more about the importance of taking photos than it does the camera, but it’s pretty cool.
