This Olympus camera takes beautiful shots. Love finished product with some cool tools included to play with; such as one-click black and white or sephia. Lightweight and was not a burden to carry as I travelled through South Korea for a month and took about 1000 pictures. Just wish I had the 40-150mm zoom lens as this sometimes didn't make the items close enough.

Got the E-PM1 for my wife. Wanted something small & light to go in her purse. But didn't like the quality of the point n shoot cameras out there. This is a very capable little camera for both the beginner or the pro. Put the 45 1.8 prime lens on it & you will be in love..
I will likely buy another one for my self. The wife always has this one with her.

The good pictures I shoot are great. However I get alot of bad ones. Im sure I just need to get use to the camera. If you dont know about cameras, this is not the camera for you. Im afraid im going to have to buy a regular point and shoot camera. one a little more user friendly.

Very satisfied with purchase. Compact and lighter weight compared to DSLRs. Large back screen. Easy to use.

There are better cameras out there, but for the price & the sheer size-weight-performance package there's nothing that can beat this. Micro fourthirds has matured with great but small lenses. I got the Oly 45mm almost after and it has become my new standard lens!
EMP1 gets more sharp pictures than one other m43 maker (my wife owns another brand m43 camera in pretty pink and almost as small in size) perhaps the EMP1's built-in stabilizer helps. For m43, you will have to compromise and put up with the noise when shooting in low light. With that in mind, I become a happy shooter! Otherwise, spend a few days set up the camera to your liking (has great SLR tweaks internally like the e series cameras I had used, I usually tweak the shadow contrast so it's flater) and for a camera this small, fast & fun, the pictures never fail to impress friends & relatives. For me now, this camera replaces a prosumer digi-compact and sometimes a full-frame DSLR especially when I want only jpegs out of the camera!
Even without a grip, I actually prefer the feel/ button layouts of this very compact camera to another compact mirrorless APS-c camera. The fewer the buttons, the less chance to trigger something by mistake (I felt this after using my wife's m43 camera)
I do not work for Olympus, or am I in any camera sales: FYI.

Great little camera - excellent as either a very high-quality walk around alternative to a DSLR, or as a step up from a point and shoot. Very impressed with the performance and feel of the camera.

This camera is simply amazing! I am an up and coming photographer and I cant imagine a better bang for your buck! The way this camera filters light through the lenz is simply amazing! I love the grainy film setting as well as the pop art, soft focus, and dramatic settings! Not only can I take great regular pictures, I take dynamic artistic pictures! I am so happy I purchased this camera!! Thank you Olympus!!

Good light weight camera with a bigger sensor than a point and shoot camera , but small enough to out in a large jacket pocket or a small bag. I also bought the VF-2 view finder but rarely use it because it sticks out too much over the camera. My go to camera is a DSLR but I don't always want to carry it. The PM-1 is a decent replacement for most situations except in low light.
