The Pen series is a family of half-frame cameras made by Olympus from 1959 to the beginning of the 1980s. Aside from the Pen F series of half-frame SLRs, they are fixed-lens viewfinder cameras.
In 2009, Olympus introduced the PEN E-P1, a Micro Four Thirds system digital camera that the company touts as the next-generation Pen camera. All Olympus PEN digital camera series have built-in sensor-shift image stabilization and (except for the E-P1) can use an optional electronic viewfinder which should be slid into its hot shoe.
The Pen EE was introduced in 1961 and was the amateur model, with fully automatic exposure and fixed focus. It is a true point-and-shoot camera and has a 28mm f/3.5 lens. The Pen EE family is easily recognized by the selenium meter window around the lens.
The Pen EE.S, launched in 1962, is the same model with a 30mm f/2.8 and a focusing ring, made necessary by the wider aperture.
In 1966 the two cameras were slightly modified and became the Pen EE (EL) and Pen EE.S (EL) with a modification of the take-up spool to make film loading easier. EL stands for Easy Loading. You can only recognize them by a small label marked EL stuck on the front, or you can open them and look at the take-up spool.
