Olympus PEN E-PL2 12.3 MP 3-inch LCD Digital SLR Camera With 14-42 Lens Kit- Black

Not Available.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

IN-BODY IMAGE STABILIZATION

Say goodbye to blurry images. In both still and movie modes - the E-PL2 Image Stabilization excels. The E-PL2's three-mode In-body Image Stabilization system compensates for up to three shutter speed steps in the still shooting modes with any of its interchangeable lenses: Mode 1 for general shooting, Mode 2 for creative high-speed horizontal capture, and Mode 3 for high-speed vertical capture. The camera's Mechanical Image Stabilization automatically compensates for camera shake in low-light situations or when using a telephoto lens. In the Movie Modes the advanced Electronic Image Stabilization tracts the images both vertically and horizontally to achieve clear sharp movies, matching the performance of the in body IS.

BUILT-IN POP-UP FLASH

Illuminate low-light subjects, reduce red eye, and fill in dark areas. Set the built-in pop-up flash to auto or control the amount of light the flash emits.

12.3 MEGAPIXEL

The E-PL2's powerful 12.3 megapixel Live-MOS sensor packs a powerful high-quality imaging punch for such a compact camera, allowing you to capture more detail than ever before. The Live MOS image sensor delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity and fine image details in both highlight and shadow areas.

TRUEPIC V IMAGE PROCESSOR

In addition to more detail, the image sensor, combined with the next-generation TruePic V Image Processor, delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity and reduced noise, all the way up to 3200 ISO.

DUST REDUCTION SYSTEM

A Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it cannot interfere with the picture imaging at any time.

HD MOVIE WITH MANUAL CONTROL, ART FILTER MOVIE, AND NEW DIRECT MOVIE BUTTON

Shoot movies at 30 frames per second, with high-quality sound, in 720p with available manual control over aperture and shutter speed. This new level of control allows you to express your vision exactly how you want in your HD videos. A Direct HD Movie Button switches you from still to movie mode with the press of a button. You can also capture HD video (720p) using one of the six Art Filters for more creative shooting options.

ACCESSORY PORT

The E-PL2 includes a port (AP2) for new accessories including the MAL-1 accessory light, the PENPAL Bluetooth accessory - which makes it easier than ever to share your images ? as well as the VF-2 viewfinder, a detachable electronic viewfinder. The external accessory port also allows for connection with the new EMA-1 external microphone adapter for enhanced audio capture.

PENPal

This Bluetooth accessory plugs into the camera's accessory port to easily save albums, send pictures from your PEN to a smart phone or another PEN. This makes it easier than ever to share images to sites like Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. When the information is sent, it includes shooting location to make geo-tagging easier than ever before.

NEW EASY-TO USE-LIVE GUIDE CONTROL

Seeing the results before you shoot can change the way you take a picture. Want more vivid or muted color in your shot? Want warmer or cooler hues? Want a brighter or darker subject, or a sharper or softer background? Or maybe you want to capture the fast-moving action of your subject with a little artistic blur, or perhaps freeze the action? Simply set the camera to iAuto, press OK to engage Live Guide, then press the up and down arrows on the back of the E-PL2 to easily slide through numerous photographic effects. Make adjustments and watch the LCD as the effects are made live - before the image is captured! Live Guide also features a Tips section on how to compose a shot or shoot kids, pets, flowers and more.

22 SCENE-SELECT MODES

From portraits to sunset shots, the E-PL2 is equipped with 22 Scene-Select modes for effortless picture taking, including Fireworks, Sunset, Children, Macro and Panorama, to name a few. Capturing beautiful portraits is easy with the ePortrait Mode that enables you to smooth your subject?s complexion. There are even three scene modes that are specific to shooting with the new conversion lenses to optimize the performance of those lenses.

IAUTO WITH IENHANCE

iAuto automatically identifies the scene you're shooting - portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport - and adjusts the settings to optimize results. iEnhance can be used in any mode, and automatically engages when using iAuto to enrich color in any subject, just as the human eye sees it.

MICRO FOUR THIRDS MOUNT

The Micro Four Thirds Mount on the E-PL2 provides many key benefits, including the effectiveness of a digitally designed image sensor, an ultra-compact design, and expandability and compatibility with all Micro Four Thirds Lenses and Four Thirds System Lens via the MMF-2 Adapter.

AUTOFOCUS LIVE VIEW WITH AUTOFOCUS TRACKING

Keep fast-moving and unpredictable subjects in focus. AF Live View displays subjects, in focus, on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way. AF Tracking locks your subject into focus and adjusts focus and brightness whether you or your subject is moving.

MEDIA CARDS

The E-PL2 is capable of recording video to SDHC and SDXC media cards to accommodate large files. (SDHC Class 6 cards are recommended.) Videos, stills and high-fidelity audio can also be output via HDMI cable - direct to any HD television.

5 out of 5 stars   Great camera
By PickyBuyer (Michigan) May 12, 2015
Review submitted for Olympus E-PL5 Mirrorless 16MP Digital Camera with FL-LM1 Flash and 14-42mm Lens (Black) (OMEPL5K1442)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Small size, more features than most people will use, high quality pictures, light weight, interchangeable lenses with other 4/3 format cameras (such as Panasonic)
Cons: Plastic lens body
Other Comments: I am an experienced photographer, and this camera is a great size - not quite a pocketable point and shoot, but with the 4/3 sensor and lens system. Much bigger sensor than many competitors in price range. Picture quality is very good.

4 out of 5 stars   Olympus Pen Lite e_pl5
By Iagoman (CT) May 06, 2015
Review submitted for Olympus E-PL5 Black PEN Camera w/ 14-42mm Lens Ultimate 3 Lens Bundle (E6OMEPL5K1442)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Over all, this is a great camera. I took it to Cuba and shot almost 800 jpegs and .mov files. The pictures are excellent. I can't find a way to reduce the picture size when it is taken. It would be great if I could find a forum on the net for users with a Q&A. I have only used the camera on "AUTO" since I find the other options difficult to figure out. One nice plus is the ability to attach a voice comment to a jpeg photo. Very handy for noting what the subject was after taking the shot. I would recommend this camera. It performed very well. The additional lenses that come with it are excellent. I only used the UV filter to protect the lens, the other filters I haven't tried out. The flash unit is still to be tested.
Cons: The movie (.mov) files don't play on my Windows 7 computer. I've tried two different software products with no success. Additionally, the jpg picture sizes are huge, usually 3.4 GB! I had to compress them individually. The manual is screwed up. It is only 31 pages (in English), but some of the information I required sent me to pages in the 40 plus range...these are in French! It would be nice if the camera case that came with it would allow space for the lens. You have to remove the lens in order to place the camera in the case. I have not used the case at all.

5 out of 5 stars   Olympus EPL-5 Review
By Apainterinahurry (Eastern Shore of Maryland) December 22, 2013
Review submitted for Olympus E-PL5 Mirrorless 16MP Digital Camera with FL-LM1 Flash and 14-42mm Lens (Black) (OMEPL5K1442)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Light weight body, Outstanding image quality, Fast Focus, Tons of Features, Superb Kit Lens, 7 Step Auto Bracketing, Touch Screen
Cons: none
Other Comments: I am a professional photographer and am extremely picky about my gear. Even though this is how I make my living that doesn't mean I'm rich. I wanted to get the most bang for my buck and this camera came out on top. The main thing that caught my attention is that the sensor in this camera is the same one found in Olympus's top of the line cameras. Yes this model doesn't have the weather proofing and some other things the top model has but who cares, the image quality is the same! If you like shooting HDR's don't look for another camera, this one is it. You can do auto bracket 7 exposures, amazing! The auto focus is fast, even with the kit lens. Also you can use the touch screen to put the focus exactly where you want it, really a superb feature (too many to list). The high iso capability with this camera is also incredible especially considering this has always been the 4/3's downfall, well not anymore. Lastly, the kit lens is excellent. Will I buy a prime lens or two, of course. But if you cannot afford to buy any other lenses then don't worry, you'll find this lens to be very good. If the images aren't sharp it's your fault, don't buy into all the hype about all kit lenses being sub-par. Unless your're a pixel peeper you'd be hard pressed to tell this was a kit lens. Always stop down to F/8 or F/11 for best image quality. This camera and kit lens combo will not disappoint. Don't think twice about buying this camera, you'll be glad you did. I almost forgot, this is a very small and light weight camera/lens combo. It won't make you regret bringing it with you and carrying it around all day.

3 out of 5 stars   Pretty good camera
By dawsey (Boise, ID) December 12, 2011
Review submitted for Olympus PEN E-PL2 W/14-42mm II & 40-150mm Lenses (Black) OPEN BOX (OMEPL2K2LKRB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, High ISO Performance
Cons: Short Battery Life, LCD poor in bright light, No Viewfinder, Instruction book poor, Need a spare battery
Other Comments: Good images but still some issues with low light. Camera is smaller than a full size DSLR, but still not small enough to put in a pocket, and take quick snapshots with. Went on vacation to a rainforest (and it rained hard) so messing around with settings and lenses on this or a DSLR leads to the camera getting wet quickly. A good compact camera would have been better. No macro on the camera is a shame (without an add on lens).
