We purchased this camera because we were going on a cruise and originally were considering a video camera, as we already have a larger DSLR camera. We decided to compromise and go with this camera so we would have less to carry. All I can say is WOW. THis camera takes great pics with the least amount of effort. We got some great pictures, and had fun taking them. A gentleman on this same cruise, was poking fun at this small camera I was taking pictures with and so we compared my pics versus his which were taken with a larger DSLR camera. He quit poking fun. Will definately be getting the larger lens.

I shot 35mm slr's for years, but have just used point and shoot cameras in the digital age. The E-PM1 offers nearly everything the digital SLR's have at a much better price.

Start out in auto mode, fantastic pictures. Get a good photography book and you can become a pro with all the features on this camera.

I am so intimidated with big DSLR cameras but would like to have an upgrade from my point and shoot. This camera fits my need from having the user friendly features, compact size and my budget. Overall, I am satisfied and amazed with the excellent images. Thank you Olympus!

I'm very impressed with the capturing ability of the Olympus E-PM1 pen camera. I'm relatively new to the DSLR world, though I know I can aim at a particular subject and capture the best I can-the E-PM 1 enabled me to express the view that I wanted to capture. My creativity instantly multiplied using this powerful portable camera.
I often stop to smell the roses when I can...Now I can also capture images of the roses through the Olympus E-PM1.

This in my opinion is the most versitile camera to come out for underwater use since the digital age started. With the 4:3 system and compact size it gives as good a quality picture as any large DSLR on the market. It also has the versitlity to do super macro in one photo and because of the use of wet lense macro magnifiers, be able to remove that lense and take a photo at 28mm of a turtle in the next shot. I am a small person and refused to change to digital until I could find a camera with equal quality and compactness to an underwater film camera . This is it. I have not found anything not to love about this camera. I can go anywhere from 3/8 inch squat lobster to a shark that is fairly close all on the same lense, and it is not heavy or bulky.
THANK YOU OLYMPUS!!!

This is a great small camera with features of the larger cameras. I love the fact that I can change lenses for different situations. I'm still learning the features but I love the camera so far.

At the present time I'm rating this camera as GREAT although I am still learning about it. All of the features that I have explored are amazing. I want to get to know the camera better. Right now the feature I like best is the weight.I'm sure there will be more as I get more familiar with the camera.

Small enough to carry when you don't want to be lugging a huge camera plus it has great picture quality and shooting options. Fast autofocus is perfect for working with kids. My wife and I could not be more pleased with this camera.
