To Die-For Design
The rounded PEN design is impressive from any angle. On the front, the gold or silver embossed Olympus PEN lettering recalls premium leather accessories and draws the eye to the minimalist, colour-coordinated grip. The premium look continues with the glittering, top-mounted metal dials and signature PEN “step”. The result is a camera that can be confidently carried – or worn – on any occasion. Which is where the compact, Micro Four Thirds format comes into play. Like any PEN, the lightweight E-PL8 is designed to go everywhere with you.
Introducing “Touch Selfies”
This new PEN elevates the selfie to an expressive art form, and makes it accessible to anyone. High-grade interchangeable lenses combine with high-end technologies to ensure maximum imaging power. Selfie Mode automatically activates when you flip down the reversible LCD, giving you one-touch access to key controls without worrying about blocking the shot with an errant finger. The result is beautifully lit, pin-sharp selfies, even when shooting against bright lights at night. Zoom lenses automatically move to wide-angle, and a choice of one-touch options appear on the LCD, including e-Portrait, Interval Shooting, Art Filters and movie special effects. PEN technology makes it possible to shoot spectacular, SLR-style shots with a defocused background or quirky fish-eye perspective that simply aren’t possible on even the best smartphones.
Movie Making Made Easy
The PEN makes it easy – and fun – to shoot and edit movies on-camera. You can record videos in short bursts, save them to ‘My Clips’, then stitch your favourite clips together to make a promo-style film with a soundtrack and Art Filter. For example, Old Film Effect randomly adds noise and scratches to create a retro look.
The World via WiFi
The new PEN links quickly to your smartphone via Wi-Fi and the free OI.Share App so you can shoot full-body selfies remotely (controlling the camera on your phone) and keep a fashion log showing the outfits you wear every day. Of course, from your smartphone it’s a cinch to upload to social media.
Change Lenses and Accessories
Like every PEN, the E-PL8 is compatible with Olympus’ ever-expanding family of high-grade M.ZUIKO system lenses, as well as the outstanding PEN Fashion Accessories, which offer a wide range of Shoulder Straps, Hand Straps or different bags for every style and every taste.
