Olympus E-P1 – It’s a PEN

olympus e-p1Before you get confused with a digital camera being a PEN, let me details things first. The E-P1 isn’t a surveillance image and video capture gadget that spy agents use. It is rather an addition to the PEN Series of Olympus. The PEN Series is aimed for camera users who are mature enough to have the image quality and superior functionality of a DSLR(Digital Single Lens Reflex) but isn’t willing to give up the convenience and ease of use of a point and shoot. As what their tagline says, “Not a Point and Shoot. Not an SLR. It’s a PEN”.

The E-P1 has different accessories such as external flash and lenses that are suitable for it and other PEN devices. These accessories are miniaturized and especially designed for these “compact SLRs” as I call them to ensure portability yet superior quality. The quality optics from M.ZUIKO DIGITAL is paired with a TruePic V processor that ensures reality like reproduction of image in the camera.

This camera promises to have an SLR like image quality, A/V quality of an HD camcorder, and high quality audio capture device too. The price of $799 could be a steep price compared to buying a full pledged DSLR that is of the same range. But functions such as auto adjustment for lazy bums who want to get quality picture without tweaking any; face detection to ensure proper focus for faces; and art filters if you feel artsy fartsy are all jam-packed in a stylish 12 megapixel device that has a retro look to it that would surely please the fans.
