Olympus Pen EE-3
The original Pen was introduced in 1959. Designed by Maitani Yoshihisa, it was the first half-frame camera produced in Japan. It was one of the smallest cameras to use 35mm film in regular 135 cassettes. Its name comes from the idea that the camera was as portable as a pen. The concept was soon copied by many other Japanese makers.
The Pen EE-3, produced from 1973 to 1983, seemed to be exactly the same camera but also added the flashmatic system. When used with a matching GN14 flash, the flashmatic system allowed the user to obtain a corrected aperture value by manually setting the aperture ring to one of the estimated distances (1-4m).
