Olympus Pen F

Wow, the Olympus Pen F retro camera is quite beautiful.

Raymond Wong on Mashable says,

The new PEN F is quite possibly the most retro mirrorless digital camera the company has ever created. I dare say it’s even more retro than the company’s high-end OM-D mirrorless cameras. It’s not just old-school aesthetics — the camera’s got a dial on the front for quickly switching between different color modes to emulate the look of film.

The digital PEN F’s design pays homage to the original PEN F film camera released in 1963. The resemblance is obvious when the cameras are next to each other. You can tell just by looking at it that the engineers and designers sweated all of the details from the font to the knurled metal dials.
