Olympus E-P1
Olympus has launched its long-awaited Micro Four Thirds camera, and the E-P1. It’s a compact, slick-looking retro model that pays homage to the company’s PEN-series cameras that debuted 50 years ago.

Think of the E-P1 as the love child of a point-and-shoot camera and a D.S.L.R. Olympus says the 12.3-megapixel E-P1, the world’s smallest interchangeable lens camera, marries the image quality of D.S.L.R. models with high-definition video capabilities found on smaller cameras. It also includes 16-bit stereo audio.
The E-P1 will be available in July as a body-only option ($750) as well as in two kits: a Zuiko 14mm-42mm f3.5-5.6 ($800) 3X zoom lens and a 17mm f2.8 ($900) prime lens.

E-P1 will produce the same image quality as its E-30 and E-620 D.S.L.R. Other top specs include a roomy 3-inch LCD, in-body image stabilization, Olympus’ in-camera creative filters and multiple-exposure capabilities, face-detection technology, 19 scene modes, and a new ePortrait Mode that Olympus says enhances portraits.
