The Olympus E-PM1 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 14-42mm II Lens (Brown) starts you out with everything you need to take great photographs, from day one. As the name states, you'll receive both the E-PM1 camera body and the Micro Four Thirds M.Zuiko MSC Digital ED m14-42mm II zoom lens (silver lens). In addition, a number of essential accessories come included as well, such as a lithium-ion battery and battery charger.

Whether you're simply looking to lighten your load when it comes to photographing or you're an avid fan of the Micro Four Thirds genre, Olympus's PEN series of cameras provide you with a more lightweight option than full-sized DSLR rigs, but with numerous bells and whistles that still provide flexibility and creativity, far beyond that of a point-and-shot. With the Micro Four Thirds lens mount, you can choose from a number of optional lenses for the E-PM1 to suit your particular shooting style.

At the center of the image making is the generous 3.0" LCD. Used for composition and review of your footage, not to mention navigating the menu and for features such as Live View, this big, bright display features 460K pixels and the platform with which to compose your next great shot or epic short film. Of course, the 12.3Mp sensor and the TruePic VI image processor are the heart of the camera, taking what you see on the LCD screen and turning it into memories that will last a lifetime.

In addition to shooting JPEG and RAW stills, along with 3D stills in the MPO format, the E-PM1 also shoots the already mentioned 1080/60i HD video. Up to 29 minutes of continuous footage can be captured with stereo sound. Video clips can be shot in AVCHD or AVI formats, and the Direct HD Movie Button on the camera switches you from still to movie mode with just a touch.

The E-PM1 also boasts stunning low light performance with the Olympus AF Illuminator - an LED beam up to 10 feet for faster focusing in dark settings. The camera also features and ISO up to 12,800 and the ability to attach an external flash. Other noteworthy features include the FAST AF System which provides up to 35-points of focus for unbelievable accuracy, 5 frames per second shooting, multiple filter options, and much more.

Never Miss a Moment with the Small and Stylish Pen
The smallest and lightest PEN is available in six stylish colors - purple, pink, brown, white, silver and black - and features a new and simplified user interface as well as a streamlined button structure for superior ease-of-use. Its small size and portability make it the ideal camera to document life's fun and spontaneous moments
Simplified Control
Operating the camera is more intuitive with the newly designed user interface. The innovative screen activates popular menu options such as Art Filters, iAuto, Scene Modes, and Movie. The on-screen graphics have also been updated with a sleeker font design and an automatic pop-up guide in the menu screen

The E-PM1's Live Guide system allows you to preview effects as you adjust them - before the image is even captured. Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, tone, etc.

Excellent Shots - Effortlessly
iAuto automatically identifies the scene you're shooting - portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport - and adjusts the settings to optimize results. The E-PM1 is also equipped with 23 Scene-Select modes for effortless picture taking, including new 3D mode, Fireworks, Sunset, Children, Macro and Panorama, to name a few. There are even three scene modes that are specific to shooting with Olympus' conversion lenses to optimize the performance of those lenses
Three Inch, Bright Widescreen LCD
This 460 dot high-resolution screen is big and bright enough to let you shoot and share photos and HD video with ease
Get Wireless
No need for cables or even a computer. Upload or email images directly from your camera with an optional PP-1 PENPAL or Eye-Fi card. The E-PM1 is also capable of recording stills and video to SD, SDHC, SDXC and UHS-I media cards
12.3Mp
The new 12.3Mp sensor is optimized to maximize the performance of all M. Zuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements in the sensor makes shooting in low light and Full HD movie recording possible
Stabilization Technology in the Body, Not in the Lenses
Say goodbye to blurry images. Olympus' in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light
Face Detection with Eye Detect
Nail the focus for every portrait photo, every time. The new face detection AF employs an "Eye Detect AF" that adjusts focus automatically on the subject's eyes during portrait shooting and can even be adjusted to focus on the right, left or near-side eye. The Face Detection function captures up to eight faces, reducing the chance of blurred subjects when shooting several people at once
Advanced Shadow Adjustment Technology
You no longer need to worry about the extreme contrast between dark and bright areas in your images. The E-PM1's Shadow Adjustment Technology corrects for extreme light variations with high-tech efficiency either before image capture or during post-capture edits
Full 1080 HD Video
Shoot up to 29 minutes of 1080 60i HD video and stereo sound in either AVCHD or AVI formats. A Direct HD Movie Button switches you from still to movie mode with just the press of a button
In-Camera Art Filters
Six in-camera Art Filters (Pop Art, Soft Focus, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama and Dramatic Tone) can be used in all shooting modes as well as filming HD movies. The E-PM1 also includes bracketing up to seven images, each image with a different applied Art Filter. Since they're built into the camera, these Art Filters can achieve dramatic results on the go without the need for computer or editing software
Wide Variety of Lenses and Accessories
A range of interchangeable lenses, accessories and flashes are compatible with the E-PM1 to support all different types of photography needs
New 3D Shooting
Add a new dimension to your photographs in any mode from macro to landscape with Olympus' 3D technology. By simply selecting the 3D Photo Mode, releasing the shutter, and slowly panning, the camera will automatically take a second image from a slightly different perspective. The 3D data is processed in-camera for easy display on 3D televisions or laptops
AF Illuminator
The addition of this super luminosity LED beam allows the camera to focus faster in low light up to almost 10 feet
Increased ISO Sensitivity
Stunning low light photos are a click away with an increased ISO sensitivity to 12,800
Attachable Flash Included
This camera provides the flexibility to attach a flash to your camera via the accessory port, or leave it at home for maximum portability
5 FPS Sequential Shooting
With the E-PM1 you can take up to five photos a second, allowing you to easily capture that perfect shot, especially when your subject is moving
World's Fastest Auto Focus
The new FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF System is able to focus at an incredible speed and offers 35 separate focus points that are spread over nearly the entire sensor, which makes it possible for pin-point accurate focusing on small subjects wherever they appear in the frame. Selectable 3x3 groups within the 35-point area are especially effective when shooting active subjects
Improved Color Reproduction
The new TruePic VI Image Processor, designed specifically for the Olympus PEN, features Real Color Technology for improved color reproduction (especially colors such as emerald green, yellow, and gold) and color gradation. The faster processor also allows for a shorter recovery time between shots
Improved Lens Technology
High-precision engineering and an improved internal focusing mechanism have allowed the Olympus MSC (Movie+Still Compatible) lenses to auto focus quickly, smoothly and silently, perfect for stills and movies
Fast Shutter Response
Never miss a shot again with the E-PM1's fast shutter response time of less than 60 milliseconds (60 - 1/40000 sec.). The TruePic VI feature allows for reduced shot-to-shot time by shortening the black-out time between shots
Accessory Port
The E-PM1 incorporates a port for connecting accessories including flashes, MAL-1 Macro Light, EMA-1 Microphone adapter, PENPAL, and the VF-2 viewfinder
In-Camera Slideshow with Sound
Slideshows have never been easier or more fun to create. The E-PM1's enhanced playback functions allow you to employ effective fade-in/fade-out techniques, control the movie/still mix and speed, add captivating musical soundtracks, and much more
Professional Audio Sound Capture
Take videos that are able to capture uncompressed CD-quality 16-bit/44.1KHz Linear PCM stereo recording or AC3 Dolby Digital audio
Easy Photo and Video Playback on Your HDTV
The E-PM1 makes sharing your content easier than ever. Using the HDMI output, just connect the E-PM1 to your HDTV with an HDMI cable (not included) and navigate the camera's menus from the comfort of your couch. This is perfect for sharing your pictures and movies with an audience
Multiple Exposure Shooting
A Multiple Exposure function enables you to be creative right in the camera. Multiple images can be captured and combined to create one unique image. The creative possibilities are endless
Additional Aspect Ratios
The E-PM1 lets you select one of five Aspect Ratios (4:3, 3:2, 16:9, 6:6, 3:4) that frame your images to whatever proportions you'd like, for everything from conventional enlargements to viewing on widescreen monitors
Proven Dust Reduction System
Olympus' Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images, even after changing lenses. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it doesn't interfere with the picture imaging at any time
ePortrait
Capturing beautiful portraits is easy with the ePortrait Mode that enables you to soften shadows and smooth your subject's complexion either before image capture or during post-capture edits
Live View Magnification
For accurate manual focusing, MF Assist can be enabled during S-AF + MF operation. With it you can zoom in on the central part of the image by up to five times by turning the focus ring
