The PEN Story

Introduced in 1959, the Olympus PEN was one of the smallest cameras at the time, and was as easy to carry around as a pen. Back in 2009, Olympus celebrated the 50th anniversary of their PEN range by creating a beautiful stop-motion video that shows a boy taking a journey through time to adulthood.

An impressive 60 000 shots were taken in 20 different locations; of those pictures, 9600 prints were developed and 1800 pictures were re-shot. The results are fantastic – see The PEN Story below.

If you liked it, then you should also take a look at A Wolf Loves Pork – it’s the work of Takeuchi Taijin that inspired the Olympus team to create their video.
