OLYMPUS PEN EE

The PEN EE ("Electric Eye") Series featured a built-in meter and automatic exposure (AE). The first model, the EE, used a simplified AE: there was only one shutter speed (1/60) and the aperture was selected by the camera. This is the first in a line of EE models that remained in production until 1986, making it the world's longest living production camera. Fitted with a hyperfocal lens and an EE exposure system it is almost fool-proof. The first model is quite rare, has grained leatherette covers and a single speed shutter. Compared to the models before, completely newly constructed. The PEN EE was now with a selen light meter and the meter cell around the lens. The former models needed manual exposure setting but the PEN EE had an automatic setting. The PEN EE was a real snap shot camera. Due to the fair sales price, this small camera was very popular and sold in high numbers. The cameras from 1961 were marked on front with Olympus, the cameras built since 1962 with Olympus PEN. 1961, 361g
