Olympus garners Red Dot awards

Press release from Olympus:

Olympus honoured with two Red Dot Awards for Product Design 2019

London, 09. July 2019 – Olympus has received two Red Dot Awards 2019: Both the compact and lightweight digital camera Olympus
PEN E-PL9 and the professional mobile dictation device DS-9500 have been rewarded for their design. The Red Dot Award is one of the most prestigious awards for product design across the world.
The Red Dot Design Awards were celebrated yesterday night during an official award ceremony in Essen, Germany.

Red Dot Award 2019 winner: Olympus PEN E-PL9
To create cameras not only featuring great image quality, ease of use and smartphone connectivity but also beautiful design is the driving force for Olympus’ R&D and design teams in Tokyo for the development of the Olympus PEN series. The latest PEN model E-PL9 has now been distinguished with the Red Dot Award.
With the Red Dot distinction, the E-PL9 ranges among its fellow PEN cameras PEN-F and E-PL7, which have received the prestigious award earlier.

Red Dot Award 2019 winner: Olympus DS-9500
The professional DS-9500 digital dictation recorder provides simple wireless (Wi-Fi) transfer via E-mail and an advanced two-microphone system for noisy environments. These features are allowing for an effective workflow from speech to text as well as more flexibility and freedom in everyday work. The Red Dot Award jury states: “The portable DS-9500 dictation device presents well thought-trough functionality and innovative Wi-Fi connectivity in order to provide effective workflow support.”
The Red Dot Design Award is not the only prestigious award that the DS-9500 has won recently. It was furthermore honoured with a “Great Product” label by the Danish hardware test platform Tweak and received a test score of 9,5 out of 10 points.1

Every Olympus camera and lens comes with a free six-month warranty extension2 when registered via the MyOlympus platform at www.my.olympus.eu.

Re: Olympus garners Red Dot awards

I had briefly thought that Leica had given Olympus these awards
