DSLR picture quality from a near compact size camera. Best price this camera has been by some margin.
Possible extra £10 off or so with Quidco, making the final cost around £325, which is firmly into the territory of a good quality compact, but with far better picture quality.
Note: this is the E-PL1, which includes a pop up flash (£150 optional extra with the E-P1).
The surprisingly small Olympus Pen E-PL1 is packed with all the technology normally found in bigger, bulkier cameras and camcorders.
This retro-style camera boasts a 12.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor and a Live Guide, which shows you the results before the image is captured.
With several creative filters and scene modes, the E-PL1 can adjust to all sorts of shooting conditions. In fact, this SLR camera renders pictures with vibrant colours and natural details, thanks to its dust-removal system and shift-sensor digital and mechanical image stabiliser.
Micro 4:3 lens compatibility means you can get more out of the E-PL1, whether you're working on a macro or telephoto shot. Meanwhile, a whole host of built-in effects means you don't have to spend hours on your computer retouching your snaps. You get the results you desire at the touch of a button!
Finally, the E PL1 by Olympus has a high definition video mode and can save creations in 1280x720-pixel resolution to an SD or SDHC memory card.
Give free reign to your imagination with the Pen E-PL1!
