Viva the “Selfie” Revolution and all things that make life easier for photographers. Olympus heard the call and along came the Olympus PEN E-PL7®—a brand new interchangeable-lens camera in a portable, compact and lightweight body, presented with a stylish design. Packed with rich features that are geared at making life easier for photographers to shoot and share content on the fly, among the PEN E-PL7® biggest draws are its 180-degree downward flip touch LCD, a selfie-dedicated mode and the bundled Wi-Fi®, all of which are combined with the vastly improved Olympus Image Share app (OI.Share™), making the Olympus PEN E-PL7 a powerful little gadget that can upload and share photographs in an instant using a mobile device.
By riding on the proven formula of the technology used by Olympus on its award-winning OM-D® line of cameras, the company continues to pave the way for the current Olympus lines to compete neck to neck with the other high-end interchangeable-lens cameras in the market today. Partnering its TruePic VII image processor with a 16.06 megapixel Live MOS sensor and M.ZUIKO® lenses, it delivers crisp, beautiful image quality with high resolution, superior color reproduction and high sensitivity, all in its handy and easy to bring camera body.
Packing up kick-ass features on all fronts, the PEN E-PL7® lessens the chance of producing blurred images because of its in-body 3-axis VCM image stabilization system which was derived from the Olympus OM-D E-M10® model. With this technology retained, the camera shake is all but avoided when using the PEN E-PL7®.
Speed is essential and Olympus is evidently aware given the FAST AF incorporated in the PEN E-PL7® model. It uses 81 points that cover the entire image. Both the small AF target and the super shot AF modes always accurately zoom in and out on all sections of the frame. The E-PL7 can also capture high-speed action on an impressive 8fps sequential shooting. Almost nothing beats a photographer who is quick on the shutter, and when armed with a camera as fast as the PEN E-PL7®, nothing will ever be.
Here are some other features of the Olympus PEN E-PL7®:
– Ability to pair with external flash that help users shoot beautiful selfies against nighttime backgrounds and an e-Portrait feature that can be activated with a single tap for a selection of appealing skin textures. Plus a portrait setting that automatically selects the correct setting from 42 types of scenes to pair the subject and optimize to create a better image.
– By having a Wi-Fi connection the PEN E-PL7® can easily connect to any smart phone just by using the Olympus Image Share app.
-Extended OI.Share Capability. Geotagged images and additional options for selfie, single shots, continuous shots all create an extended power of the sharing and shooting capabilities of Olympus PEN E-PL7®.
– Camera Creativity. New tools, filters and effects comes in board with the PEN E-PL7®, making it easier for photographers to experiment with different styles and photography methods.
