Olympus E-PM1 micro-four thirds camera
Introducing the smallest Olympus PEN camera yet - the Olympus E-PM1!
We really like this camera. It is exactly the same as the Olympus E-Pl3, but $200 less and with a couple less buttons on the back. Here's a video demonstration:
Operating the camera is more intuitive with the newly designed user interface. The innovative screen activates popular menu options such as Art Filters, iAuto, Scene Modes, and Movie. The on-screen graphics have also been updated with a sleeker font design and an automatic pop-up guide in the menu screen.
The E-PM1’s Live Guide system allows you to preview effects as you adjust them – before the image is even captured. Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, tone, etc.
EXCELLENT SHOTS - EFFORTLESSLY
iAuto automatically identifies the scene you're shooting – portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport – and adjusts the settings to optimize results. The E-PM1 is also equipped with 23 Scene-Select modes for effortless picture taking, including new 3D mode, Fireworks, Sunset, Children, Macro and Panorama, to name a few. There are even three scene modes that are specific to shooting with Olympus’ conversion lenses to optimize the performance of those lenses.
THREE-INCH, BRIGHT WIDESCREEN LCD
This 460 dot high-resolution screen is big and bright enough to let you shoot and share photos and HD video with ease.
The new 12.3 megapixel sensor is optimized to maximize the performance of all mZuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements in the sensor makes shooting in low light and Full HD movie recording possible.
The addition of this super luminosity LED beam allows the camera to focus faster in low light up to almost 10 feet.
INCREASED ISO SENSITIVITY
Stunning low light photos are a click away with an increased ISO sensitivity to 12,800.
ATTACHABLE FLASH INCLUDED
This camera provides the flexibility to attach a flash to your camera via the accessory port, or leave it at home for maximum portability.
STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY IN THE BODY, NOT IN THE LENSES
Say goodbye to blurry images. Olympus’ in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light!
FACE DETECTION WITH EYE DETECT
Nail the focus for every portrait photo, every time. The new face detection AF employs an "Eye Detect AF" that adjusts focus automatically on the subject's eyes during portrait shooting and can even be adjusted to focus on the right, left or near-side eye. The Face Detection function captures up to eight faces, reducing the chance of blurred subjects when shooting several people at once.
ADVANCED SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY
You no longer need to worry about the extreme contrast between dark and bright areas in your images. The E-PM1's Shadow Adjustment Technology corrects for extreme light variations with high-tech efficiency either before image capture or during post-capture edits.
No need for cables or even a computer. Upload or email images directly from your camera with an optional PP-1 PENPAL® or Eye-Fi™ card. The E-PM1 is also capable of recording stills and video to SD, SDHC, SDXC and UHS-I media cards.
