BTW, for a bit of web nostalgia, check out the Happy Daze website, which was ripped straight out of the 90’s.

Full window display is after the jump.

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Olympus PEN E-PM1

Olympus E-PM1 Review

Is your dad still using his 5 year old point-and-shoot to take vacation pictures? Or has he abandoned it for his iPhone because it’s small enough to fit in his pocket? It’s time for you to pull your dad aside and tell him to father-up and get a camera that can record some serious family memories. If you’re looking for a camera that’s lightweight but not underpowered, check out the 12.3 megapixel Olympus PEN E-PM1.

With interchangeable lenses, a small form factor and beautiful image quality, the PEN E-PM1 is perfect for dads that aren’t looking to go headlong into professional-level dSLRs. With a price tag of $499, this camera may not be on your radar for a solo purchase, but if you’ve got a couple of siblings, it’s an awesome group gift. And if you’re the father we’ve been talking about and need an impressive camera for your own vacation pictures, this is it.

Many families have made the jump to dSLR cameras; the prices have come down on the entry-level models, and the “Micro Four Thirds” (MFT) class of cameras have driven body size down even more. As a result, you’re able to find really capable cameras at affordable prices.
