The Olympus E-PL3 Digital Camera (Black) with 14-42mm Lens puts the power to do more with your photos in the palm of your hand. Not only that, but the E-PL3 promises to do so, without weighing you down. Perhaps you’re a die-hard Micro Four Thirds fan or you’re simply looking for more versatility than a point-and-shoot can provide but without the weight of a DSLR rig. Olympus has heard the call and thus, has expanded their PEN line of cameras. This E-PL3 comes with an mZuiko MSC Digital ED m14-42mm f3.5/5.6 zoom lens. You can start shooting from day one with everything you need to make great photos. This versatile zoom gives you the coverage to shoot most subject matter, making it a great first lens. Using the Micro Four Thirds Mount, however, you can add any of the compatible lenses to the E-PL3 to customize the camera for the shooting you plan to do. In addition to the included lens, the camera also comes with an external flash for low light photography and a host of other essential accessories. Along with capturing RAW and JPEG images, the E-PL3 also takes 3D photos in the MPO format. And, as is one of the hallmarks of the Micro Four Thirds genre, the camera also records 1080/60i HD video in AVCHD or AVI Motion-JPEG formats. Up to 29 minutes of video can be recorded using the camera. Features like Live View and a generous 3.0″, tiltable LCD screen help to capture even more dynamic footage with ease.
View the World From a Different Angle: The E-PL3 inspires innovation and is perfect for those who require a versatile, portable camera filled with advanced yet easy-to-use creative technologies
12.3MP: The 12.3MP Live MOS sensor is optimized to maximize the performance of all m.Zuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements to the sensitivity and read-out speed of the existing sensor makes ISO 12,800 shooting and Full HD movie recording possible
Stabilization Technology in the Body, Not In the Lenses: Olympus’ in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses, from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light
Improved Color Reproduction: The 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
Face Detection with Eye Detect: Nail the focus for every portrait photo, every time. The face detection AF employs an “Eye Detect AF” that adjusts focus automatically on the subject’s eyes during portrait shooting and can even be adjusted to focus on the right, left or near-side eye
