If you are a die-hard fan of the nostalgia,
loved the appearance and size of the
dreamed of a compact professional camera,
drop your jaws and drool over OLYMPUS PEN E-P1!

OLYMPUS PEN E-P1 is born from OLYMPUS's legacy of PEN series half-frame cameras which made its debut in 1959, earned its credentials of "So compact, so light" and "Enjoy easy shooting anywhere, anytime". PEN E-P1 is the digital incarnation of the classic PEN. PEN E-P1 is a 335g compact digital camera that utilizes interchangeable lenses. PEN E-P1 sports a Micro Four-Thirds mount which has optional adaptors to utilise standard Four-Thirds ZUIKO DIGITAL and OM lenses. With a 12.3-megapixel High-Speed Live MOS Sensor and TruePic V image processing engine, the PEN E-P1 captures DSLR quality pictures and HD (720p) movies clips. The built-in Image Stabilization provides steady pictures at up to 4 EV steps efficiency. As with any cameras utilizing interchangeable lenses, dust is always are headache. The Super-Sonic Wave Filter in the PEN E-P1 vibrates at super hi-speed to shake of any dusts. Proprietary built-in Art Filters puts the creative tools inside the camera to eliminate subsequent photoshop workflows. For the more advanced users, manual focusing is made easier with MF-Assist feature. Like the Lumix-LX3, the PEN E-P1 does not have a physical viewfinder, but does have an optional optical viewfinder which sits on the hot-shoe. OLYMPUS already has a line-up of accessories for the PEN E-P1, but you can always fall back on your existing OLYMPUS accessories. Launched together with two new kit lenses (14-42mm M.Zuiko and 17mm F2.8 "Pancake"), these lenses also bears a similar retro-like polygonal zoon ring appearance. At the end of the day, hook up the PEN E-P1 to your flat TV via the HDMI cable to share your gallery of photos and HD videos.
