The black Olympus E-PL5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with M.ZUIKO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens Bundle contains the E-PL5 mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital camera and the wide-angle to portrait-length M.ZUIKO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R zoom lens. Additionally, the Pen Casual Case, a Mini Tripod, and a 4GB SDHC memory card are also included to provide the essential accessories needed to begin photographing.
The E-PL5 is a compact mirrorless digital camera featuring a 16.1 megapixel Micro Four Thirds size sensor and TruePic VI image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080i video at 60 fps with notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600. A 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor is available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation and it features a 170° upward and 65° downward tilting design to better aid working from high and low angles. In-camera sensor-shift image stabilization is also available and helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake when working in low-light situations and with longer lenses.
The included M.ZUIKO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28-84mm, making it a suitable choice for us in most shooting situations. It features MSC (Movie/Still Compatible) technology to provide near-silent operation that is ideal when recording HD movies. The lens also incorporates three aspherical elements into its optical design to help minimize chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range and to produce sharp, clear imagery.
