Harrison Cameras and Olympus

We have worked with Olympus for over 35 years, covering products which range from the old Pen, hal frame cameras, to the new, high tech, Pen series, with all its buttons and bells. The changes have been significant, with film camera sales being rapidly overtaken by digital and photo storage and manipulation enhancing the history of photo capture across the decades. From the old Pen and Olympus Trip days to the current PEN, OM-D and Digital SLR system, Olympus have consistantly offered outstanding optics, with innovative design, enabling the photographer to capture the perfect shot. Prime and zoom lenses go together, with flashguns, cases and converters, to build up a comprehensive system, which covers all eventualities.
