This is the Oympus PEN Story in stop motion video.

60.000 pictures; 9.600 prints and over 1.800 pictures reshot.

No post production!
This is one of the most detailed stop motion video ever seen.

Olympus PEN

Olympus' new E-P1 "Pen" camera sports a 12.3 megapixel resolution, handles micro four-thirds lenses, and shoots high-definition video. It's not exactly a DSLR, but you can change lenses.

The PEN story’ is dedicated to the comeback and the 50th anniversary of the Olympus PEN. It starts in 1959 where the first PEN was released and ends with the new digital Olympus PEN.

The PEN E-P1 isn't featured here because if features a 12.3 megapixel resolution,  3-inch LCD viewscreen, in-body image stabilization, dust reduction system, and Olympus's new TruePic V image processor . . . 

Olympus PEN

It is on A Parallel World because the video uses art to convey emotion very, very  effectively and we salute all those who push the envelope.

Thank you to Peter Chong for bring this to our attention on Facebook.
