1080p Full HD Video

A simple, one-touch button allows you shoot clear, crisp full HD videos in 1080p right from your camera.

Multi-Motion Movie IS

The newly-developed image stabilization technique helps to reduce camera blur caused by walking or breathing when shooting videos.

Smart Panorama

Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!


In iAuto mode, the camera automatically detects the subject, lighting and situation to identify the scene you’re shooting – up to 30 different scenes including Night, Sport, Beach and Snow, Underwater Snapshot and Backlight HDR – and adjusts the settings for ideal results.

When Photo with Clip is engaged, the camera stores 3 seconds of video before and after your shot were taken to combat half smiles and closed eyes so you get the perfect shot every time.

Olympus’ Magic Art Filters infuse familiar scenes with new and unexpected moods ranging from the excited to the serene and from the whimsical to the mysterious.

Effects may reduce image size.)
