The stylish black PEN E-PL7 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R Lens from Olympus brings with it a compact design and a 3.0" 1.04M-dot touchscreen LCD that flips downward 180° for creating quality self-portraits. In addition to this display, it features a 16-megapixel Live MOS CMOS sensor and the TruePic VII image processor for creating detailed imagery. The E-PL7 also manages to fit three-axis VCM image stabilization into the body for sharp photographs and video.
Focusing with the E-PL7 is speedy with an 81-point FAST AF system which includes Small Target AF. This system can work while taking continuous shots up to a rate of 8 fps and the grid covers the entire frame. Full HD video recording is also possible. And, this camera comes with the FL-LM1 flash which offers wireless control over additional units.
Fourteen different Art Filters are available for achieving unique looks and effects in your imagery. This includes settings like Vintage and Partial Color. HDR, HDR bracketing, and focus peaking features are also included for assistance during shooting. Interval shooting also has a helpful tool which will convert individual images captured during interval shooting into timelapse.
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables users to pick up their mobile devices and use them to accentuate usage of the E-PL7. By using the Olympus Image Share app you can move images from your camera directly to your device as well as control the camera itself.
Along with compact form, interchangeable lenses are an important advantage to mirrorless photography and Olympus provides a wide array of Micro Four Thirds lenses to fit the E-PL7, including the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R which is bundled with this camera. This zoom lens, designed specifically for Micro Four Thirds mounts, has an overall length of just 1.9". This is a versatile lens, covering a wide-angle to moderate telephoto focal length of 14-42mm, or 28-84mm in 35mm format. It is comprised of 8 elements in 7 groups and the lens has 7 aperture blades that create natural background blur.
When working with manual focus, focus peaking is available to simplify attaining precise sharpness, which is especially useful when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
