Olympus E-P1 announcement clippings

The OLYMPUS PEN E-P1 is an interchangeable lens digital camera that is compliant with the Micro Four Thirds System standard announced in August 2008. The nickname "OLYMPUS PEN" comes from the legendary half-frame film camera, which was released in October 1959 and rapidly swept across the world, sold a total of 17 million units worldwide and forever popularizing the joy of photography with people everywhere. We decided to give the new product the same product name because this new camera brings to digital SLR photography the same breakthrough in size reduction and convenience that the original PEN, as well boasting a stylish design that echoes the charm of the original. This naming expresses our commitment to making it possible for as many people as possible to experience the true pleasure of photography at its finest.
