With my friends from work, we started a small website (penowiec.blogspot.com independent service), which aims to popularize the PEN cameras in Poland. Poland is a country divided photographically Nikon and Canon, we know that the Olympus Pen cameras, it’s cool and want to share it others.
In Europe it is difficult to find photographers who have working cameras PEN.
Would you like to share, with a few words about the work of PEN cameras. This text with your pictures would be very helped our cause “hearing PEN popularization in Poland.
Of course, we will post a link to your website.
We are waiting for a response
Thank you and greetings.
“In digital photography technology, due to the 2 major big brands, we have often forgotten the legendary history of Olympus in making cameras and lenses. Just to remind some of you who might have forgotten, Olympus pioneered SSWC dust reduction, Live View in DSLRs, and it’s legendary in-body I.S. These are apart from the legendary OM-1, XA, PEN F which they have created in the old days. Zuiko is commonly known as Japanese Leica due to it’s optics quality.
As for the digital PEN, it reminds us of the history of the old film PEN cameras, when more than 17 million were sold in the world during 1960s-70s. This NEW digital PEN we are seeing here is potentially rocking the world today. Since the E-P1, we have seen marked improvements to it’s high ISO performance. We already have very smooth and yet detailed ISO1600 files since the E-PL1. AF is also remarkably improved in the NEW MSC lenses.
In the development of digital photography, the PEN focuses on actual image-production straight out of camera, which contains rich characteristics of the Zuiko lenses and the Olympus image processor. Unlike common digital files which often require photo-editing software to further enhance them, Olympus gives SOOC stunning images! The Olympus cameras retain it’s original “digital characteristics” unlike other RAW files which are usually edited with SIMILAR software, resulting in SIMILAR characteristics.
The PEN is a piece of revolutionary equipment producing DSLR quality images with a small body and small lenses. It also has become a source of unlimited fun with almost limitless type of legacy lenses mounting on it via adapters, making unique old school film-look images.
If you can achieve high quality images with a small and easy-to-use interchangeable lens camera, the focus will naturally shift towards creative image-making instead of “using” the camera itself!
There is NO better way to improve your creativity than using a Simpler Camera like the PEN!
P.S. Feel free to use my images with CREDIT given back to my website. You can download the higher res files from my Flickr. We are also educating the Malaysians about the PEN via blogs, flickr groups and many other activities. Maybe one day, we can organise a exchange program when you guys come over for a trip and we go over to Poland for a visit too! Cheers!
It’s GREAT to meet other PEN Lovers from another continent!!!
