The Pen EE S (not to be confused with the Pen EE S2), launched in 1962, is the same half frame model as the EE but with a 30mm f/2.8 lens and a three position focusing ring, made necessary by the wider aperture. The Pen EE family is easily recognized by the selenium meter window around the lens. These were considered amateur models and true point and shoot cameras, with fully automatic exposure and fixed focusing. The shutter settings EE S are 8, 15, 30, 60, 125, 250, and B. The manually set frame counter can count down from 76 to accommodate the half frame exposures. The camera also has an optical view finder, manual fold down film rewind crank handle plus release button, right thumb film advance wheel, ASA settings from 10 to 200, flash-X on the front, manual aperture settings up from 2.8 to 22, shutter button with screw-in plunger accommodation, ¼” 20 thread tripod mount, and two strap hard points one on each side. Olympus revived the Pen name in 2009 with the digital Pen E-P1 and advertised as the next generation Pen camera.
