Once upon a time in a cosy studio apartment in townsville Damansara, heaven descended and a white boxy-like thing found itself on the face of earth.
It was no ordinary boxy-like thing; it had a picture of a ravishing female model who strangely had a miniature gadget in her hands. There were words imprinted on the boxy-like thing bearing the words :
"NOT A COMPACT. NOT A DSLR…. IT'S A PEN"
But unfortunately, Domokun, a burnt piece of toast could not comprehend the words…
"GIRL . HOLDING . COOL . THING!"
As his mommy wasn't home from work and university yet, he gathered the other citizens of Bedship to take a look…
"I WANNA HOLD THAT THING IN HER HAND!"
"AIAAAYYYAYAA.! SHE'S NOT LETTING ME HAVE IT WORR.. HOW? !!"
Curious to uncover what had just happened, Domokun strives to find out what could possibly be inside the box. He has heard his mommy talking about a PEN before to her friends and how everyone was so excited to see it for the 1st time.
He looked around, left right top bottom center eager to dig out what that kick-ass PEN is all about.
"I BETTER OPEN IT BEFORE MOMMY DOES!"
"YAAAYY I'M INSIDE! HELP ME GEDDIT OUT FELLAS!"
And soon, the 3 citizens of Bedship curiously rounded themselves up and managed to empty the boxy like thing. But alas, there is ANOTHER boxy-like thing!! Looks like the bedmates has to open the 2nd boxy-like thing to finally reveal the Olympus PEN!
But they had no fingers!! How were they gonna get it out?
"WOOOOHH COOL! ANOTHER BOX!"
"BUT HOW ARE WE GONNA GEDDIT OUT WOR?"
"CONFIRM YOU KENOT TAKE IT OUT WAN DOMOKUN!"
"SHUDDDDDDDUPPPPPP!! I'M GONNA GEDDIT OUT ONCE AND FOR ALL!"
"RARRR RARRR RARRR!!"
"BECAUSE I HAVE TEETH AND YOU DON'T!"
"AND ALSO, IT ONLY WEIGHS 295 GRAMS!"
SO EASY TO HANDLE! TO TAKE OUT, TO PUT IN TO DO ANYTHING, WITH IT!
"WHO DARE SAYS I CAN'T TAKE IT OUT AH?"
"MUAHAAHAHHAAHAA. I GOT IT OUT! TOLD YOU!!"
SO SMALL & LIGHTWEIGHT! SMALLER THAN ME OKAYYY!
IT'S 114.6 x 72.1 x 41.4 MILLIMETRES ONLYYY"
The moment it was out, the bedmates knew the world would love it… especially their mommy! There was a distinct beautiful & retro old-skool like charm about the Olympus E-PL1. It's not the kinda slippery shiny texture where all your dirty fingerprints can be seen on it. The body has a solid and matt feeling with silver linings! Good grip too 😀
And they found out.. there was something more inside the box besides that black beauty!
IT WAS ANOTHER LENS! A ZOOM LENS!
Although not being a DSLR and not having a huge body, this Olympus PEN E-PL1 has interchangeable lens too! No need for a DSLR to achieve fabulous shots anymore. Very handy for near or far subjects or landscapes which you wanna shoot 😀 Plus, Olympus has this expanded line of exclusive Micro Four Thirds lenses that best fits your photography needs.

"I HEARD THAT IT ALSO COMES IN 3 ELEGANT COLOURS!"
"WHITE.. GOLD-ISH AND BLACK!"
"WHAT ELSE? I WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU WHAT THE CAMERA CAN DO TOO!"
"MOMMY SAID THAT IT HAS SO MANY ARTSY-FARTSY FILTERS & EFFECTS
IN ADDITION TO THOSE HIGH QUALITY IMAGES IT CAN PRODUCE"
"OH NOOOO!! @#$%&*!@#@# MOMMY'S HOME!
WE CAN''T PLAY WITH IT ANYMORE! BUT NEVERMIND!

"WELL, AT LEAST SHE HAS FINGERS TO PLAY AROUND
