TheOlympus PEN E-PM2 proves that small can be powerful. This mirrorless camera featuresthe same sensor used in Olympus’s high-powered Micro Four Thirds cameras whichprovide images that can rival the ones from digital SLRs.
The Olympus PEN E-PM2 carries the renowned 16 megapixelLive MOS sensor, which is what Olympus uses in all their PEN cameras. Thishigh-powered sensor makes shooting high quality photos with sharp detailspossible and is compatible to Olympus’s wide array of lenses.
Fast Processor and Built-in Stabilization
Image processing is improved with their TruePic VI ImageProcessor, allowing faster recovery time in between shots. Its in-body ImageStabilization helps with getting perfect shots without the blur caused bylittle movements. And since this is a built in feature, users can use any typeof lens without worrying about motion blur.
Olympus’s Micro Four Thirds cameras are known for theirsuper quick auto-focus. Its Touchscreen reaction is fast and users are able toset focus by simply tapping on their subject, even when they’re not centered inthe frame.
Fast Burst and High ISO
Its 8fps capabilities allow ease and precise shots withmoving subjects. The PEN E-PM2’s ISO sensitivity can reach up to ISO 25,600 forlow light shots.
Aside from the 3.0” touch screen LCD, the camera body issmall and lightweight. The built-in grip helps uses get a secure hold on thecamera as they’re taking photos. The Live Guide feature provides information onthe camera’s menu settings to make navigation easier.
This kit comes with a 14-42mm lens which is versatileenough to be used for every day shots, as well as special shoots and events. Italso comes with a 40-150mm zoom lens. Both these lenses are great ones to havewhen you’re still learning photography. They can be used in most shots. Theyaren’t that heavy, so you can bring them around with you conveniently.
Wi-Fi functions allow connection from the camera to mobiledevices, as well as wireless control.
