    As anyone who can be arsed to read my increasingly bizarre and ill-tempered posts has probably gathered, I'm not a great one for the latest-greatest technology, but recently I had the opportunity to acquire an Olympus camera with fixed lens, a larger than 4/3 sensor, although somewhat limited manual controls.

    It is in the "PEN" series and as you can see is small, easily pocketable and damn pretty:

    Wow, that is probably the most retro look I have seen on a digital camera yet. Be interesting to see how people respond.

    A friend who was a professional photographer used to rave about these

    I was a bit snooty about them at the time although doubling the shots did appeal to my pockets

    I like the built-in LED ringlight flash unit. Eliot is gonna want one.
