No, this shooter isn’t vintage. But, the E-P1 pays homage to the “Pen F” circa 1959. Olympus’ new, interchangeable-lens digital boasts a 12.3-megapixel sensor capable of both still and HD video capture. This little guy looks like dad’s old 35mm, but with a 21st century spec list.
Here’s a bit of useless history. The skull & cross bones symbol originated in Spain as a cemetery entrance marker. Further along the time line, New York adopted the stamp to warn of poisonous substances. Fittingly, Jan Leslie’s Dop Kit combines Big Apple design with Spanish craftsmanship. The blue interior is washable & the zipper tag is inlaid with flaming red crystals.
The swiss army knife of bags. Hard Graft’s 3Fold Bag easily converts into a laptop case, overnighter or large portfolio. Multi-tasking is good, and in this case, allows you to justify a little extra for fine Italian leather.
Women have their jewelry boxes. Men have their tool chests. Until the 1930s, men housed their precious wares in hand-crafted cases like the Journeyman. Return to style, upgrade your red plastic unit to a sanctuary of felt-lined drawers housed behind a locking security panel. No one will ever “borrow” your hammer again.
If you are looking for a compact camera, but require a professional setup, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1C-K fits the bill.

The advanced feature set is extensive, but don’t worry, if you want to ease into things there is a user-friendly option.
