Olympus E-P1 Micro Four Thirds digital camera – part 1 – a brief intro

In the coming days you are going to see quite a bit about a new digital camera. Anyone who stays up to date with my reviews will know that it takes something special to get my attention and for the first time in ages, I’m actually excited about a digital camera.

The new Olympus E-P1 is a compact digital camera – if you saw it from a distance, you’d easily mistake it for a point-and-shoot camera. The design can be described in one word – absolutelyamazinglycool. Seriously, this is a gorgeous camera. It borrows a lot of its looks from the original Olympus Pen, without looking too outdated. It has the perfect balance of modern and retro, and Olympus clearly spent a lot of effort making it their camera look this nice.

That is all your are going to get in part 1 – I simply have too much to tell you about this amazing camera to fit it all in one part. In the coming days you’ll get up close with its usability, photo and video quality and some more focus on how well it travels.

In the meantime, head on over to the Olympus E-P1 minisite to learn more about this amazing camera.
