Description

From the Manufacturer A new era of digital imaging begins with the Olympus E-P1. The world?s smallest 12.3-megapixel interchangeable lens system camera blends the high-quality still images of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) with High Definition (HD) video, stereo Linear PCM audio recording and In-Camera Creativity within an ultra-portable body. The easy-to-use E-P1 expands your creative horizons and its diverse multimedia features offer something for everyone. Built for today?s visual generation who lead active lives online and offline, the E-P1 will make you rethink what you can do with a camera. Capture More of the Life You Live Shooting spontaneous images of your daily life usually means snapping small, grainy images with your cell phone or using a point-and-shoot if it?s handy. A DSLR delivers incredible image quality, but most aren?t compact enough to roam with you. Now, the E-P1 changes the game with a compact body that delivers the professional quality images of a DSLR without the bulk. Moreover, its sharp HD video capture and stereo audio helps you live a better-documented life because you?re carrying one portable camera rather than a DSLR, an HD camcorder and a high-end audio device. You can share more of your life with the world when the E-P1 travels with you. Make your Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter and personal blog postings unique by capturing and sharing more videos and photos. You can chronicle more of the life you actually lead, rather than just special occasions you prepare for, like weddings, holidays and birthday parties. Since it?s the only camera to offer in-camera art filters for both still photography and videos with high-end audio, even your everyday activities will look and sound amazing!Beautifully Designed Stainless-Steel Body The new camera?s high-end, stainless-steel body is easy to handle and carry, and has the styling and refinement of a precision watch. Its retro-chic look turns heads, from tech aficionados and camera buffs to the fashion-conscious and everyday point-and-shooter. Built to be solid, it fits comfortably in a jacket pocket or a handbag for a night on the town, or to take on any spontaneous adventure. The E-P1 lets you do more and go more places while capturing your life, thanks to its compact size–4.75 x 2.75 x 1.43 inches (W x H x D)–and light 11.8-ounce body. Attention to detail is visible in every aspect of the camera?s retro-style metal body design, available in either silver or white with accompanying new small and lightweight Olympus M. ZUIKO Micro Four Thirds lenses: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 (28-84mm equivalent) and 17mm f2.8 (34mm equivalent). The new E-P1 offers many great features derived from the E-System, as well as many breakthrough innovations, including:Superior DSLR Image Quality In-body Image Stabilization Amazing 3-inch LCD Proven Dust Reduction System 12 megapixels with next-generation TruePic V HD video with high-quality audio In-camera creative features (for still images and video) Multiple exposures Multi-aspect shooting Multimedia slideshows Digital leveler Magnified focus assist 18×18 metering modes Olympus E-P1 Highlights and FeaturesUltra-Compact Body Delivers Superior DSLR Image Quality The E-P1 erases all doubts about whether a compact camera can take images that are equal to those taken by a DSLR, because it has everything you need to produce vibrant DSLR-quality images: a large 12.3-megapixel imager, In-body Image Stabilization, fast Imager Autofocus, the proven Olympus Dust Reduction System and the new TruePic V Image Processor. As the first Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus, the E-P1 provides the same image quality as current Four Thirds format E-System cameras because it has the same image sensor size as the E-30 and E-620 DSLR models, but in a much smaller body. This high-performance 12.3-megapixel Live MOS image sensor delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fid
