The “CAMERA GRAND PRIX 2010” jury has choosen the Olympus E-P1 as “Camera of The Year“. And The E-P1 also won the “Readers Award“! Last time Olympus won the price was in 1998 and with the “OLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400LOLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-1400L“!!!

    Actually, it is E-P1 not E-PL1.

      SMC…I am the idiot :)
      I corrected the post!

  • Quido

    Lol, I think it’s actually the E-P1, not E-PL1.
    But I agree with you completely! :)

  • smc

    I’m sorry. Didn’t mean to offend you. It can happen to anybody. :) And please keep posting the rumors. Great job so far! :)

    • admin

      No offense…I have been really an Idiot!
      Regarding’s quiet now. Soon I will know more about the modular camera form Olympus and the new Panasonic sensor! Cheers

  • Bu

    A well deserved accolade and kudos to Olympus for thinking outside the box.

    Btw it is not about being an idiot, everyone has typos :)

    As much as I can sign up for the Olympus fan club, I can’t see how the E-P1 is the best camera of 2010. The E-p2 is better and from an user point of view perhaps this title should go the GF1.

  • Maxim

    I agree with Duarte Bruno on the point that E-P2 is even better. Perhaps the price/value is the main feature that it was judged by, or maybe sales volumes. Why do you say it should go to GF-1 that is what I don’t get though…

    And.. as a E-P2 owner and happy user I very much enjoy the fact that I own a camera which is even better than the CAMERA OF THE YEAR! LOL =)

    it’s not the best, it says it’s the camera of the year…

  • “They reviewed 199 models of cameras which were released in Japan from April 1, 2009 to March 31, 2010. ”

    Surely, from now it’s not the best, but it’s the first compact m43, the one that started this new adventure.
    In 2009, ep-1 got the EISA award “best camera 2009”

    “The selection is made under a council system by C.J.P.C. members whose task is to find outstanding products that have popular, topical and innovative appeals.”

    “The E-P1, which successfully combined the concept of the legendary masterpiece “OLYMPUS PEN” and state-of-the-art digital technologies, is the camera which offers the new direction of digital cameras. Based on the review, Camera of the Year went to OLYMPUS PEN E-P1.”
