November 10 2009: Olympus to Release New Pen

Olympus Hong Kong China Limited will hold a conference on Tuesday November 10 2009 at the Pearl Hall of the Hong Kong Eaton Hotel on Olympus’ new Micro FourThirds Pen single-lens digital camera.

The Olympus Pen single-lens digital camera represents a breakthrough from traditional design concepts, removing the reflex mirror and pentaprism and in so doing, creating a more compact footprint not unlike a digital compact camera but with DSLR-type image quality.

Olympus has now improved autofocusing, resulting in faster performance with higher level of accuracy. What we currently have is a new revolutionary digital age combining 100% digital in the imitable style of a classic film-based camera body. And with that, we present a more professional version of the Olympus Pen single-lens digital camera that will be available for members of the media to try out.

We therefore invite you to send your reporters and photographers to attend our conference. The details of this conference are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, November 10 2009

Time: 2:30pm to 5:00pm

Location: Eaton Hotel (Pearl Hall, 2nd Floor), 380 Nathan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Invitation for Members of the Press Only


UPDATE: One more invitation has been leaked in malaysia: http://lucifer-doom.blogspot.com/2009/11/olympus-pen-gathering-in-malaysia.html

    Hmmm. could a connector for an external EVF and mic really count as a “more professional model”? Maybe they will in fact release the rumored E-P1 update PLUS a new, more professional model?
