Ever wonder what a day at the Darling office looks like? With the printing and release of our fourteenth issue, kicking off exciting fall events, and even welcoming a new (tiny) team member to the bunch, our days of late have been busy but brimming with newness, creativity and collaboration.

And while smartphones are great, if you’re anything like us you sometimes want certain memories to carry a bit more weight beyond the typical Instagram shout-out. That’s why we teamed up with Olympus to do just that.

Using their Olympus PEN E-PL7 high-definition camera, we’re taking you inside of our Los Angeles office to meet Miles, our photo editor’s new addition, behind-the-scenes in realtime to the Darling press in Orange County, and capping off the night with a very special Thanksgiving Darling Dinner, hosted under the string lights in our EIC’s backyard.

What we love about this camera is how easy it is to cement legit memories that we may otherwise forget in the slush of our iPhone’s storage. We get to be both videographer and photographer with this one, snapping and shooting away without having to cart around a ton of gear. The Olympus PEN E-PL7 conveniently slips in a pocket or purse for documenting life on the go, so we can leave our phones and be full present in making memories.

(But don’t worry, the camera also  comes equipped with easy social sharing functions, so others don’t have to miss out on your memories, either. Wink.)

When’s your next #PENworthy moment?

  1. It’s always the best photos that somehow happen unexpected and low res on the phone camera….this is a great solution with high quality equipment at you fingertips. Well done.
