    With its retro good looks and tactile design, the Olympus Pen is the camera to be seen with this winter. A compact and manageable design, the Olympus Pen camera is packed full of the latest technologies for crisp and sharp SLR images, perfect for capturing those frosty, beautiful, sunny days. You can also record HD quality movies, with high quality stereo sound.

    Based on the iconic Olympus Pen, which was designed to be as easy to use and carry as a pen, the 21st Century digital Olympus Pen camera has been designed to deliver the creative potential and quality of an SLR camera, whilst being much more compact in size and easy to use.

    Available in silver or white, the Olympus Pen benefits from many extra features, including six Art Filters, allowing you to explore your creative side in pictures and movies. The Pop Art filter enhances the colour in the picture, making colours stronger and more vivid for a high-impact, happy picture. Other filters include, Pin Hole, Soft Focus, Pale & Light Colour, Light Tone and Grainy Film. The filters can also be applied to images on the camera after a picture has been taken and the Multi Exposure mode allows images to be overlapped.
    When filming HD quality movies you can add the Art Filters for creative effects and also control and vary the depth of field, angle of view and autofocus. To take the guesswork out of achieving sharp focus, shifting electronic image stabilisation (Digital IS) ensures perfect pictures every time and high quality stereo guarantees your movies sound crisp and clear, perfect for music videos or video messages for friends and family. High-resolution still images can also be taken at the touch of a button while recording movies. The movies can then be played back on your computer and TV.

    The camera can be used with interchangeable lenses, to guarantee a wide range of shooting styles and an optional flash gives you extra flexibility. An intelligent i-Auto option allows the camera to automatically adjust to six common scene modes, such as landscape, portrait and night and e-Portrait ensures your subjects will always look their best, allowing you to smooth away wrinkles and eliminate imperfections and blemishes. A Dust Reduction system protects your camera when changing lenses. SD cards can also be used with the camera, so you never have to worry about having enough space for your movies and pictures.
