CREATIVE FREEDOM

EXPAND YOUR CREATIVE HORIZONS WITH BUILT-IN EFFECTS

Olympus appreciates that you may not have hours to spend retouching your images on the computer. The E-PL2 has improved Art Filters with selectable new Art Filter variations that allow users to customize each filter with different moods and effects and an Art Effect function to add various composition effects to the picture. Six Art Filters are incorporated including the new Dramatic Tone filter. With the E-PL2's Multiple Exposure you can shoot one shot, then another and combine them in real time, or capture both shots separately and combine them within the camera later. Choose from one of six background music tracks when playing an in-camera slideshow.

SMALLER, SILENT KIT LENS.

The E-PL2 comes with the new Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) ED m14-42mm f3.5/5.6 zoom lens. This new kit lens has a smooth, silent and quick inner focus mechanism to make it exceptionally fast and nearly silent when recording high-definition movie.

HD MOVIES MADE EASY.

Recording HD movies with the E-PL2 is simple thanks to an easy-to-reach one-touch record button on the back of the camera body. If you're about to snap a photo and you realize a video would capture the spirit of the scene even better, simply press the record button and instantly you're capturing videos! Easily toggle back and forth between capturing stills and video by using your index finger to press the shutter button or your thumb to press the red record button. Having the ability to shoot still images and videos opens up a world of imaging possibilities.

ACCESSORIES.

Olympus has five new accessories to help you further expand what you can do with PEN cameras. Three new affordable and compact conversion lenses ñ Fisheye, Wide Angle and Macro ñ help you create fun and interesting photos with ease. The MAL-1 macro arm light helps you illuminate your subject during macro shooting or high-definition movie shooting.

And the PENPAL Bluetooth® accessory makes it easier than ever to share your images.

EASE-OF-USE

NEW LIVE GUIDE FOR STILLS AND MOVIES.

The PEN E-PL2's Live Guide system takes the guesswork out of great photography and videography by allowing you to preview effects at the touch of a button. Want more vivid or muted color in your shot? Want warmer or cooler color? Want a brighter or darker subject, or a sharper or softer background? Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic and videographic effects. Make adjustments and watch the LCD as the effects are made live ñ before the image is captured!

FACE DETECTION WITH EYE DETECT AF.

ail the focus every portrait photo, every time. The new face detection AF employs an "Eye Detect AF" that adjusts focus automatically on the subject's eyes during portrait shooting.

3-INCH HIGH-RESOLUTION LCD.

The E-PL2 provides an overall excellent user experience with a large, easy-to-view 3.0-inch 460,000-dot high-resolution LCD monitor and a control dial.

professional image quality

BIG SENSOR, NOT A BIG BODY.

At the heart of the E-PL2 is a large-size image sensor that's the same sensor as the one inside the Olympus E-30 and E-620 Digital SLR models. The only difference between this sensor and what the pros use is that this big sensor is inside the much smaller body of the E-PL2. This high-performance 12.3-megapixel Live MOS image sensor (8 times larger than the average point-and-shoot camera sensor) delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity, and state-of-the-art technology to reduce noise and capture fine image details in both highlight and shadow areas.

features

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.

Robert

Very, very pleased with the camera.

Delighted with the camera. I am getting exceptional results for an amateur photographer. I re-interpreted the manual into multiple work flow sheets that make more sense as I have now the information that I need right at hand. The capabilities of the camera and various lenses now make sense to me. With this great camera and lenses, I intend to enter competitions in 2014. It was totally good purchase for me.

Great camera, excellent value!

I owned a PEN E-PL1 for two years, and enjoyed using it very much. Recently, I felt I was ready for a camera upgrade, and saw a special price for the PEN E-PL2 on the Olympus website. I purchased the E-PL2, and so far have not regretted it. The new version of the 14-42 kit lens is quite an improvement over the original. It is smaller in size, which enhances the appearance of the camera; and it is far smoother in operation, and takes a lighter touch to zoom in or out. The camera is better too. All of the controls seem smoother, and the menus are more responsive. The autofocus is a bit faster as well. I also appreciate the larger and clearer LCD screen. I like the appearance and feel of the E-PL2 over my older E-PL1. In general, I think I'm going to really like using this camera, and look forward to getting some great shots.

Everything is right to me.

E-PL2 is the most handsome looking camera. It produces entry level DSLR quality picture but with much smaller size. I had purchased 42-150mm lens which extends the range of the camera,
wcon-p01 which gives me a 22mm wide angle lens , VF-2 the best electronic view finder which turns pen into a true SLR. For my application I will buy a full frame SLR eventually, but I will also stick on PEN! I am glad my decision, don't have to end up two SLRs.

I am now a big PEN fun.

Good image quality

Overall quality overwhelms the cost

We love E-PL2 for the following reasons :
- excellent JPG quality than its competitors
- very light with bundle or pancakes lenses
- lovely In-Body Image Stabilizer

Nathan

No reason to cary big camera with big lenses

The main reason I looked into PEN series, is for the compact size of camera and the lenses. I went to the shop trying to decide between NEX and E-PL2. Though NEX was attractive in camera size and lcd quality, decided to go with E-PL2 mainly for the lens size, the size of lens looks very disproportional in NEX.

After buying it I really enjoyed shooting with it, the good thing is everyone in family likes taking pictures with it, just turn to iAuto, then works like point shoot.

Its a great camara w/a world of features to discover and use, to bring your surroundings and memories alive

CameraChef

Great Micro 4/3!

This is a nice walk-around alternative to a DSLR. Easy to use in all modes, sharp looking with a grip, so on-handed shooting is possible. The accessory shoe is great and I already have the VF-3 and that is great too!

This is a fun camera to use

I upgraded from an Olympus FE-310 point and shoot. We are artists and I photograph our work for our website and brochures. This is a much better camera for that purpose. I also like to take photos of landscapes.

Love the 4/3 and the PL2 is awesome

The PL2 has been my introduction to the 4/3 system and I'm hooked. Wanted a smaller high quality camera to travel with and the Olympus does it well. The PL2 is a beautiful piece of equipment and it is a lot of fun to use!
