A camera for everyone!
Olympus developed the PEN for people who get a kick out of great images, but
find shooting with high-end cameras way too tough since most SLR cameras are
heavy to carry and relatively difficult to use. The Olympus PEN Mini changes all
that. The Mini generates the stunning picture quality of a large SLR camera,
with none of the hassle or baggage.
Its smaller and lighter than almost every other system camera with
interchangeable lenses, has a faster autofocus, plus its easy to use and it
looks fantastic. This new PEN has the inimitable style of a must-have icon. With
its slender contours and premium finish, its the sort of camera youre happy to
take out and show off wherever you are. Even the supplied high-grade lens looks
