The Olympus PEN Story

Olympus have produced this wonderful stop motion video to celebrate 50 years of the PEN.

This is the PEN Story in stop motion. We shot 60.000 pictures, developed 9.600 prints and shot over 1.800 pictures again. No post production! Thanks to all the stop motion artists who inspired us. …

Olympus E-P1 Preview

Imaging Resource have got a preview of the new Olympus E-P1.

The E-P1 is a Micro Four Thirds format camera. Put simply, it’s a DLSR with the mirror removed to make a much smaller camera. The lenses are interchangeable and a 17mm f/2.8 and 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 will be available at launch in July. The sensor is the same 12.3 megapixel sensor used in the Olympus E-30 and E-620 DSLRs.

Also available will be an external flash (FL-36R and FL-50R will work as well), an optical viewfinder and adapters to connect OM and Four Thirds lenses to the Micro Four Thirds mount.
