Photographer want to be
I'm a novice at photography and I have a lot to learn about this camera but I'm really impressed with it so far. Without using any of the special features, it takes great pictures. Struggling a little with the menu at this point, but am hopeful that it will get easier as I become more accustomed to the camera. I love the size of camera. I considered a heavier DSLR camera but didn't want to carry a heavy camera when traveling. This little camera has a lot in a little package! My only complaint is the operator's manual. It can be hard to find what you're looking for.

I'm a hobbyist and was looking for an affordable compact camera with plenty of features and picture quality comparable to more expensive DSLRs. This one fit the bill. None of the other competitors in its class has as much capability for the price.

I am not a photographer, I am a snapshot taker. I bought the E PM1 to help me move to the next level, and I am not disappointed. The images are crisp and bright, and I love how fast the autofocus is. I would be happy to recommend it to anyone!
P.S. I haven't used the art filters, I'm not there yet with my skills so it wouldn't be fair to comment

I've been really happy with this camera, especially for the price. My friends and coworkers who have spent much, much more for cameras were also extremely impressed with the quality for the price, when compared to their expensive DSLR's. Of course, at the price, you lose a few features found in higher-end cameras, but you'll likely discover an easy work-around using the great and super-customizable menus.

The pictures are so crisp and clear! I love the art features, and how fast the auto focus is, and I love the fact that I control the whether or not I want the flash on... even when the setting is on automatic. I love this Camera!

I took some of the best film photos of my life with a Pen EE that was lovingly passed down in my family, so I always wanted to reconnect with the Pen E brand.
After learning about the E-PM1, I jumped at the opportunity to bring this into my digital camera line-up. And I am so so so glad I did.
The best camera is "the one you have with you" when you are in that moment that has to be captured by a photo. The E-PM1s size makes it the camera that you can always have with you for great moments. And its lens, action and software make it powerful enough to capture great images. For example, I have already had several images using a E-PM1 "art" setting were so good that they have been published in a regional economic journal.
I have used a variety of SLR, medium and PaS formats, so I know their strengths and weaknesses well. I am so happy to have reconnected with the Pen E family. It is taking my love of photography and advancing the quality of my photography so fast. I am sure it will do the same for you, too, regardless of what your current level is. Go get an E-PM1. You will be thrilled with it! And you will be thrilled with the Customer Service. I had some questions about a few things and I received email responses within minutes (from "Sam") that were spot on as to answering my question. Honestly, I have never experienced better customer service in the past 10 years than this.

I'm still learning to use all of the features, but have taken some great pics so far.
One thing would help; it would be nice if the instrucion book had more info on each function.

The only features I miss would be a built in flash and being able to look via a built in viewfinder.
