Olympus PEN E-P1 digital camera

The trouble with digital cameras today is that they want to throw everything and the kitchen sink. We want a camera that just shoots awesome pictures.

May we point your viewfinders in the direction of the Olympus Pen E-P1. Sporting the same sleek style first created in the same film camera introduced in 1959, it feels like a camera should: weighty (3.2 pounds) but not heavy, and small enough to fit in a coat pocket. The attain the smaller size, Olympus had to ditch the optical viewfinder for a 3-inch LCD display (a separate lens comes with a clip-on viewfinder).

The camera’s SLR-quality sensor produces good low-light shots, and the camera comes loaded with useful features, including image stabilization and a digital leveler.

Boasting a 12.3 megapixel sensor of SLR-quality, the E-P1 comes fully compatible with a vast range of Olympus’s lenses, but comes standard with a 17mm f2.8 lens. It also shoots HD video (1280×720 pixels) and a rate of 30 frames per second.
