Features & Connectivity

The best part of the Olympus E-PM1 digital camera is the Art Filter feature. The list of special effects that can be applied in images brings out the creativity in you. This feature eliminates the need to edit photographs by transforming simple images to fantastic and unique photographs with an artistic touch.

The Supersonic Wave Filter (dust reduction system) ensures that the image sensor stays dust-free in case any dust particles fall while changing lenses. With an assortment of scene modes like Portrait, Landscape, Panorama, Fireworks and many more, you can shoot brilliant images without having to fiddle with any settings in the camera.

The Sensor Shift Image Stabilizer safeguards your images from getting distorted by minor shakes or jerks. The Face Detection feature of the E-PM1 camera automatically captures images by identifying faces in the screen. You can also take group photos with your friends and family using the self-timer which gives a delay of 2 or 12 seconds before clicking an image.

In the Sequential Shooting mode, the Olympus camera captures images at 4.1 fps with Image Stabilizer. The E-PM1 camera captures images in JPEG, RAW, JPEG+RAW and MPO formats. The videos are recorded in AVCHD / AVI Motion JPEG formats providing impeccable quality. You can connect the E-PM1 camera to an HDTV using HDMI cable to watch videos and images in high quality. In order to transfer images, you simply connect this digital camera to your laptop or PC using a USB 2.0 cable. The combined Video and USB offers NTSC or PAL selection.

Awesome mini DSLR

Got the black E-PM1 6 months back. Loving it since. Have owned many Sony and Canon point and shoots. After I had kids, photographs were a big problem. Indoor shots always had blur and were looking dim. Wanted to get a dslr but either the price was too high or the bulk was too heavy. Step in the Olympus Mini E-PM1.

Some features are missing

Flash is missing, and the grip in the front is missing. In previous EPL1 model these features were present. I don't understand why olympus stopped their best selling EPL1 model. There a eye soring blue light on the top of this camera which is really annoying. I hope olympus relaunches EPL1..
