    Thought I'd share a fun project I'm doing with the Pen. I'm shooting a music video in Miami with SilverMedallion using only Olympus Pen cameras. Its been a ton of fun, simple and pretty straight forward but the results have been great.

    I'll be doing a multi part how-to video series in April prior to the release of the video. Right now because of the schedule I only have time to post to Instagram and Facebook (via instagram) Here's a couple pics -

    I like the stacking idea! A m4/3 camera is light enough to do that. It might not work to good with a couple of Canon 5Ds.

    Thanks everyone. The edit is going well. The first two challenges I had were file management and syncing of the shots but am just about past that hump. This coming week I'll cut it, color it then look at any effects and B-roll I need to complete it.

    What has surprised me is the quality of the video from the Pen. Very sharp, pretty clean but I do wish Olympus opened up the bit rate more so that the videos would be even better in terms of color and noise.

    I too am doing a music video with my pen. However, mine will be stop motion.

    Awesome! Can't wait to see it. When do you expect to have it done?

    I did a bit of stop motion on this video. Super fun to do.

    I'm doing stop motion for mine as well. But, I'm worried about my shutter life and taking 10000 pictures, so I may just do time lapse video.

    I'm hoping its ready by the end of July or so.
