The Olympus E-PL3 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 17mm f/2.8 Lens gets you out and shooting from day one with both the camera body and the lens, not to mention, other useful accessories. 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. If either of these applies to you, you’re in the right place.
This E-PL3 comes with an M.Zuiko MSC Digital ED 17mm f/2.8 lens. You can start shooting from day one with everything you need to make great photos. 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.
Driving all this picture taking and movie making would be the 12.3Mp Live MOS Sensor and the TruePic VI image processor. These two work in tandem to not only record remarkably detailed and bright images, but to do so quickly and efficiently, writing them to compatible SD/SDHC/SDXC, or UHS-I cards. Another helpful feature aiding in the image making process would be the in-camera image stabilization, which promises a cleaner image than image stabilization in the lens alone. Olympus’ FAST AF System also does its part to help capture stunning images with its 35-point focus area; making it especially useful for shooting active subjects.
Of course, art filters and other modes help add creativity to your memories, in camera. Additional in-camera editing features include the ability to make slideshows with sound, and the ability to preview effects as you adjust them. The E-PL3 also provides you the option to wireless transmit your photos or videos to email with optional, compatible cards, for computer-free transfer. What else you ask? Well, how about improved color reproduction, face detection with eye detect, 5.5fps sequential shooting, and much more. Olympus wants you to enjoy picture taking without feeling weighed down or locked into point-and-shoot. With their E-PL3, you can do just that.
