BLAZING SPEED

IMMEDIATE RESPONSE ONE-TOUCH SHUTTER AND CONTROL

The E-PL5’s Touchscreen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch even if the subject is not in the center. Touch Screen display makes it easy to choose AF points, capture a picture, change camera settings, release the shutter or navigate controls, simply by touching the screen.

8FPS SEQUENTIAL SHOOTING

With the E-PL5 you can take up to eight photos a second, allowing you to easily capture that perfect shot, especially when your subject is moving.

FAST AF WITH FACE AND EYE DETECT

The FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF System is able to focus at an incredible speed and offers 35 separate focus points that are spread over nearly the entire sensor, which makes it possible for pin-point accurate focusing on small subjects wherever they appear in the frame. Selectable 3x3 groups within the 35-point area are especially effective when shooting active subjects.

PROFESSIONAL IMAGE QUALITY

16MP LIVE MOS IMAGE SENSOR

Featuring the 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor of the OM-D E-M5, the Olympus Micro Four Thirds flagship, the PEN E-PL5, is optimized to maximize the performance of all mZuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements to the sensitivity and read-out speed of the existing sensor makes shooting and Full HD movie recording possible.

TRUEPIC VI IMAGE PROCESSOR

TruePic VI Image Processor, designed specifically for the Olympus PEN, features Real Color Technology for improved color reproduction (especially colors such as emerald green, yellow, and gold) and color gradation. The faster processor also allows for a shorter recovery time between shots.

PROVEN DUST REDUCTION SYSTEM

Olympus’ Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images, even if you change lenses. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it doesn’t interfere with the picture imaging at any time.

IN-BODY IMAGE STABILIZATION

Say goodbye to blurry images. Olympus’ in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light!

EASE OF USE

NEW FLIP SELF PORTRAIT 3” LCD SCREEN

The E-PL5 features a flip touch screen that rotates 170 degrees and allows you to take self portraits. The E-PL5 is designed to optimize the touch screen LCD and was introduced to operate the MENU display with a new simple operation instead of a mode dial.

LIVE GUIDE

Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, tone, etc. Operating the camera is more intuitive with the newly designed user interface. The on-screen graphics have also been updated with a sleeker font design and an automatic pop-up guide in the menu screen.

IAUTO
