The Pen F is a half-frame single lens reflex camera introduced in 1963 by Olympus. It is designed by the highly respected and quite famous engineer Maitani Yoshihisa, who also has created the Olympus Pen point-and-shoot series, as well as the OM-1 and the Olympus XA. The original model is easily recognized by its big golden gothic letter F engraved to the right on the front plate, where later models sport a selftimer lever. The Pen F is a quite compact camera with a porro prism viewfinder, which completely avoids the traditional SLR prism bulge because the reflex mirror flips sideways, resulting in a compact viewfinder arrangement. The Pen F has a bayonet mount for interchangeable lenses. There is a release button and a depth of field preview button at the top of the lens close to the lens mount.
A review by Cameraquest"...Notice there is no characteristic SLR hump on the top of the camera. Olympus designers brilliantly used a mirror system rather than the pentaprism. to keep the size small. The down side of this is that the mirror systems are very susceptible to haze and dirt. No Pen F/FT/FV finder is bright, but they are made worse by this. If you have your camera serviced, be sure to have its finder cleaned. The shutter is a focal plane rotary titanium shutter which allows flash sync all the way up to 1/500th of a second. Rather than the typical horizontal finder in virtually all 35 SLRs, the Pen F and FT have VERTICAL finders. It may surprise at first, but you soon get used to it... read more here.
