I received the EP-3 camera from my wife as a Christmas present. Overall, I loved the quality of the photos it turned out although I expect the camera to be made in Japan for the price paid. Few days after Christmas, we took the camera with us on a day trip and when I tried to change the mode, the switch came off. I was shock and found out the switch was a plastic cover guess it glue to the knob...
We returned the camera after we got home that day and very disappointed about the built quality for the price.

I wish there was more information other than the paltry manual to instruct and educate on actually how to use the Olympus EP3. As a relative novice, the camera is not intuitive at all. I actually got a book on the EP2 to have something to go by.

I have tried to get help from place where I purchased the camera, I have tried to download information and I have tried using the cd included with camera.
I love the features of the camera but I cannot count on the reliability of the camera.
I really want to enjoy the camera but have become discouraged.

I need more practice with it, but what a bunch of great features packed into a small body! I'm looking forward to creating better and better images as I go.

This camera is a joy to use. The OLED screen is beautiful. It's amazingly fast with it's auto focus. I love the art filter bracketing feature and I can customize up to five buttons just the way I want.
The image quality is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a high quality camera.

I have found this to be an excellent camera for an amateur or even advanced photographer. I really like the ability to add different effects or filters to the images in the bracket function. The small size of the camera is also a plus. I can easily carry it anywhere I go without it being to cumbersome. The only thing that could be improved would be the shutter speed.

a really good camera for such a small size, packs a punch with picture quality. you can set which controls you wish to use. one can use either the advanced features or enable all the default system settings. when combined with the oly 45mm, PL 25mm and P 14mm it makes a great camera kit with top quality images.

I bought my E-P3 because I was tired of lugging around heavier cameras and their accessories.
The E-P3 has more than met my expectations. It is fast-handling, fun to use, and produces images that are more than adequate for most purposes.
I've left the world of DSLRs behind and don't plan to return.
I grew up on black and white film and am a particular fan of of the Grainy Film art filter (and since I shoot RAW concurrently, I can always generate a higher-resolution, or color, image if needed).
Here are a few photos from a recent European vacation. I should stress that these images are out-of-camera JPEGs.

This new PEN flagship is exactly what anyone who wants to take high quality, feature-rich pictures, without wheeling around a roller bag full of camera kit.

This camera is just perfect! The image quality is amazing.
The best of this camera is that with it in your hands you feel like shooting. It is not an electronic gadget, but a camera that brings you the inspiration needed to get perfect shots. You will not feel the same with competing cameras and this makes ALL the difference.
