Olympus E-PM1 PEN Camera w/14-42mm Lens

The Olympus PEN E-PM1, also known as the PEN Mini 1, is a handy, stylish, and powerful PEN series model that's ideal for newbies in photography. With a 12 megapixel sensor and impressive 200 - 1600 ISO settings gives wonderful low light performance. The fast auto-focus and built-in image stabilizer keeps subjects in-focus and photos clear and sharp. 1080 quality at 60 fps is available in the PEN E-PM1 for videophiles. On burst shot, it's capable of 5.5 fps. The 460,000 dot 3" inch LCD monitor gives you an amazing and detailed live view experience. The simple to use body and modern features are definitely enough to keep new, and ever veteran, photographers happy.

Powerful Features

This is the entry level model for Olympus's PEN series, but it does pack a lot of high end features. It has a 12.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor, which is the same ones as the higher end models of the line. It also has a very impressive ISO 12800 setting, which allows users to take good photos in low light settings.

Minimize Shake

The body also comes with a built-in image stabilizing system, which means that you get the benefit of image stabilizing no matter what lens you use with it.

Fast Auto-Focus

The PEN E-PM1 also features a 35 point fast auto-focusing and even has face detection features. Manual mode lets you control aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings just like a digital SLR.

Easy, Creative Shots

Its built-in Live Guide system acts like a manual that teaches you all you need to know about what the menu option does. Art Fillers are available, so you can really get creative with your photos.

Lenses and Accessories

Like all PEN models, the camera works with Zuiko Micro Four Thirds lenses. There is a wide variety of zoom, prime, macro, and wide angle lenses to choose form. You also have the option of installing accessories, such as flash or even a mic, on the accessories shoe on the top of the camera.
