Good but not great

Over all this is a nice compact DSLR, but there are many improvements that could be made - Whats good: very compact and perfect for travel. With the optional pancake lens it will fit in your pocket or purse; its too bulky to fit in a pocket with the lens that comes with the Camera and obviously any telephoto lens makes it way to large. Auto focus is good, art filters are very useful and produce great results. Manual mode has all you would need to take complete control. Pre set up modes (sunset, portrait etc) are ok. Ease of use and navigation between set up screens is ok. So whats not good...the photo software that comes with the camera is TERRIBLE I still cant use it, its very confusing and there is absolutely no usable help manual. I use a Mac and there is no seamless interaction between iPhoto and the Olympus software. The Panorama function does not work (yes, i am using it correctly) No paper manual altho down loading a version and storing it as a pdf is easy. no built in view finder - you can get one as an accessory but price is high. Battery life is poor so always have a spare. Image stabilization is not that good at all and watch out in low light and low f-stop. Also by the time you have purchased a couple of additional 'must have' lenses, a view finder, an additional battery, a case and a decent memory card, you will have spent a lot of money. I would like to be more happy with my purchase. Olympus has work to do before this
camera really meets the expectations their advertising sets.

this is a camera that is very easy to use. I love the fact that my pictures come out looking professional and I am such an amateur at photography! Yes, I highly recommend this camera. Its a small camera that acts like a big expensive fancy professional one!

Excellent product, very compact.

I like the feel of the EPM1, it feels very solid, it's very compact. The menu system is very easy to use and the features are great, especially the art filters and the manual modes.

Easy to use, great presets and manual settings

This is my first 'high end' camera and I find it easy to use. It's best to play around a bit, to get the feel for the different settings and how to use them under various lighting and background areas. Not sure how it compares with the more pricey models, but overall a great product for the money.

The lightweight and image quality is amazing

My father bought a Pen-ee while in Vietnam Nam in the 1960's and the small size, high quality and level of fun was amazing. The same is true now of the newest digital Pen E-PM1. You will never take good pictures if you don't have the camera with you, and the small size, light weight, and incredible image quality makes this an amzing camera system that you can take anywhere. I bought the vf-2 viewfinder to make the camera feel more like the classic rangefinder cameras I love, an extra lens, and a Macro adaptor that works on both lenses. It's genius!

perfect compromise

The E-PM1 is the perfect compromise in balancing image quality and portability. With the M. Zuiko 17/2.8, the Lumix 14/2.5, or the Lumix 20/1.7 mounted on this camera one can obtain comparable image quality to an APS-C DSLR in a package half the size. In fact, pretty much the same size as some of the popular enthusiast compacts.

Build quality is excellent. I thought I might be a bit annoyed at the lack of dedicated control buttons/dials, but if one familiarizes oneself with the menu options and sets the camera up properly, the work arounds are quite adequate.

Excellent!

The E-PM1 aka PEN Mini is not my first camera, but OMG this camera is the best! The size of a point and shoot acts like a DSLR but VERY light! Great in low light, and very bright light as well. I rarely find myself using the attachable flash that is included. I say if you are past the point and shoot stage but do not want to commit to a large bulk DSLR camera this is a GREAT intermediate product! Very powerful. I got mines in purple. I get compliments from friends that are photography majors, they love it!

Good camera but too small

My left hand kept interfering with the low light sensor when I would try to zoom the lens and take a picture. Otherwise it was an ok camera. I returned it because of the above issue.

Fantastic!

Beautiful images. The best smaller camera I've ever had! The HD video is amazing and the battery lasts forever.

High quality camera

My E-PM1 is not only high quality product that takes excellent photographs, but it was relatively easy to learn how to use.
