Olympus E-P1. People always want more from their digital camera. More power. More creative capabilities. More versatility. They want the amazing picture quality and abilities of a DSLR, but not its larger size. At Olympus, our goal was to develop an interchangeable lens camera as portable as the original PEN and packed with innovative features.
Detailed features of Olympus E-P1.
IMAGE QUALITY. While the Olympus PEN provides the enhanced mobility of a point-and-shoot, it maintains the high image quality and image sensor inherited from the E-System DSLRs. The E-Pl uses a 12.3-megapixel high-speed Live MOS Sensor and the newly developed TruePic V image processing engine. It also incorporates the same top-rated technologies found on our E-System DSLR cameras including the Dust Reduction System and In-body Image Stabilization. And of course, the quality of all interchangeable ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses.
