Sleek and versatile the Olympus PEN E-PL6 is a Micro Four Thirds system mirrorless digital camera featuring a 16 MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic VI image processor. These two technologies combine to enable high resolution still shooting up to 8 fps, full HD 1080i video recording, and sensitivity from ISO 100-25600. Sensor-shift type VCM image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake with any lens in use and compensates for camera movement across three axes to benefit both still and movie shooting. Additionally, the FAST autofocus system employs 35 points, as well as Face and Eye Detection settings, to quickly and accurately acquire focus. Making use of the imaging capabilities, the camera also features an interval shooting feature for creating time-lapse imagery as well as a Short Release Time Lag mode for faster shooting response times. Rounding out the feature-set of the E-PL6, the compact body construction incorporates a 3.0" 614k-dot touchscreen LCD, which has a 180° tilting design for easy selfie compositions and working from low shooting angles.
Included with the camera body is the M.ZUIKO Digital 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R standard zoom lens, which provides a 28-84mm equivalent focal length range. It features quiet autofocus and zooming operation to benefit recording movies and also incorporates three aspherical elements to reduce aberrations and produce high image sharpness and clarity.
