I’ve long been tempted to purchase a DSLR, but have held off for fear I’ll never use it given their lack of portability – you can’t hit the bars without looking like a total dweeb. Announced last week, the Olympus PEN-1 Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Camera is now up for pre-order and is almost point and shoot small. You can grab one sans lens for $749.99 or drop an extra $50 and walk with the body and a 14-42mm Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens. Like I said, I’m tempted, but $800 is a whole lot to burn on a camera. Expect the Pen-1 to ship in July.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
