Olympus recently unveiled the newest version of their iconic Pen camera.  In the 60s and 70s, the Pen series camera sold more than 17 million units and Olympus is clearly hoping to match its ancestor’s distinctive style.

The modern digital version of the Pen will feature 12.3 megapixels, 720p HD video recording and come with two lenses.  As DPreview points out, it’s essentially an Olympus E-620 crammed into a new sexy body, but also includes minor upgrades like the ability to apply Art Filters on RAW files directly from the camera.  It’s great to see camera manufactures taking a page from the designs of yesteryear, but only if modern features aren’t trimmed in the process.  Fortunately for Olympus, it looks like they’ve done just that.
