• Do Not Swallow: Olympus Releases Tiny E-PL Promotional Cameras

    No, you cannot take pictures with these tiny E-PL1 and E-PL2 cameras, but you can, feasibly, buy one and carry it around on your keys. Sadly, you can’t take pictures with these tiny, removable-lens cameras, although that would be amazagasmic. And remember: “It’s love, It’s a pen.” Read More

  • Olympus E-PL2 Appears In The Rumorsphere

    This is kind of exciting but also not: the Olympus E-PL2 appeared in the camera rumornet but it’s not a major upgrade – at least so far – from the E-PL1.

  • The Olympus PEN E-PL1 finds a damaged Internet tube, leaks everywhere

    Hello, beautiful. The Olympus PEN E-PL1 isn’t supposed to be official until tomorrow, but that didn’t stop good ol’d Engadget from posting the full press release along with all of the product shots early. Well done, boys. And PR agencies are afraid we’re going to break their embargoes because of Arrington’s rant. (we don’t, btw) But anyway, back to the… Read More
