Olympus E-P2 overview

  • 1Description

This E-P2 Digital Camera W/17mm Lens & Flash (Black) from Olympus continues the trend of packing ever-greater features into ever-smaller camera bodies. The mirror-less E-P2 has 12.3 megapixel resolution using a sensor that's 8 times larger than most point-and-shoot cameras (meaning improved image quality), accepts a wide variety of interchangeable lenses and it's only slightly larger than a point-and-shoot (4.74 x 2.75 x 1.37"/12 x 7 x 3.5 cm, weighing just 11.1 oz/335g). This special edition has a black camera body, black 17mm lens and black FL-14 flash.


The included lightweight 17mm f/2.8 M. Zuiko Digital lens is equivalent to a 34mm lens in the 35mm format. The included FL-14 dedicated flash attaches to the camera's hot-shoe and operates in TTL-Auto, Auto, and Manual modes, with a guide number of 14.

HD video at 720p resolution is just part of the E-P2's arsenal of high-quality features (there's an accessory port which can be used for an optional microphone to record superb sound with the HD video, or for an optional electronic viewfinder (EVF)), and tracking autofocus in both still and movie modes locks onto your subject and keeps it in focus even when it's moving.

A few highlights:  8 Art filters for dramatic effect, including Diorama, which gives your image the look of miniatures, and Cross Process, which changes the color and contrast of the subject for a surrealistic look; an in-camera image stabilization system that compensates for up to four shutter speed steps with any of the system's interchangeable lenses (helping to prevent blurry pictures in low light); 19 automatic scene modes that automatically set optimal settings for specific commonly photographed scenes (such as Night-Scene, Portrait, Landscape, etc.);  iEnhance shooting mode that tweaks image color to emphasize the main subject; and a dust reduction system for spot-free images.

There's also full manual control for all programs and functions, including Aperture and Shutter, with full automatic control just a button-press away; a shadow adjustment function that corrects for extreme light variations; a multiple exposure mode; a face detection technology; and much, much more.

Ultra-Compact Body
The E-P2 is the definition of state-of-the-art optical engineering in a black ultra-compact body. It weighs just 11.8 ounces and measures just 4.75" (W) x 2.95" (H) x 1.43 (D), so you can to slip into a pocket or purse and to take with you anywhere.
M. Zuiko Lens
The accompanying Olympus M. ZUIKO 17mm f/2.8 lens (in black) is small (2.24"/57mm diameter x 0.86"/22mm), lightweight (2.5 oz/71 g), powerful and precision engineered for superior performance. Equivalent to 34mm in the 35mm format.
FL-14 Flash
The included FL-14 flash (in black) is an easy-to-operate external flash with a design that matches the E-P1 Pen. With an equivalent GN (Guide Number) of 14, it runs on 2x AAA batteries and operates in TTL-Auto, Auto, and Manual modes.
Accessory Port
The E-P2 includes a port for new accessories including EMA-1 Microphone adapter and the VF-2 live-finder, a detachable electronic viewfinder. The viewfinder easily slides onto the camera's accessory port and hot shoe to provide 1.15x magnification for a 100% field of view. The VF-2 rotates up 90 degrees which is useful when shooting subjects from challenging angles. Its diopter can be adjusted to allow most photographers to see subjects in perfect focus without wearing glasses. The external accessory port also allows for connection with the new EMA-1 external microphone connector for enhanced audio capture.
Auto Focus Tracking
The E-P2's Imager Autofocus Live View with the new C-AF (Continuous Autofocus) Tracking and AF Target Registration locks your subject into focus, and constantly adjusts focus and brightness whether you or your subject is moving. With this mode, a simple push of the AF button and shutter release enables you to keep fast-moving and unpredictable subjects in focus - from left to right and front to back - automatically ensuring that even active subjects are captured clearly.
Micro Four Thirds Mount
The Micro Four Thirds Mount on the E-P2 provides many key benefits, including the effectiveness of a digitally designed image sensor, an ultra-compact design, and expandability and compatibility with all Micro Four Thirds Lenses and Four Thirds System Lens via the MMF-1 Adapter.
Four Thirds System Lens Adapter
Other Four Thirds Format lenses can also be used on the E-P2 with an available MMF-1 Four Thirds System Lens Adapter, including extreme wide-angle fisheye and super-telephoto lenses. This further increases your range of creative options.
Sound Recording
The sound recording function of the E-P2 helps you capture all the nuances of classical music, the signing of birds, or any other sounds you want to record. The system is capable of recording and playing back WAV files, and of adding the professional quality sound to digital slide shows.
Truepic V Image Processor
In addition to more detail, the image sensor, combined with the next-generation TruePic V Image Processor, delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity and reduced noise, all the way up to 6400 ISO.
In-Body Image Stabilization
The camera's In-body Image Stabilization system compensates for up to four shutter speed steps with any of the system's interchangeable lenses. Mechanical Image Stabilization automatically compensates for camera shake in low-light situations or when using a telephoto lens.
Art Filters
A series of eight built-in art filters for replicating countless striking and dramatic effects can be easily activated for both still and video imaging. The Diorama art filter gives users a miniature model photo feeling by narrowing the depth of focus and enhancing color and contrast. The selective focus that this filter offers lends intimacy to images of even the largest subjects like canyons or cityscapes. The Cross Process art filter offers an unexpected look to images and videos by changing the color and contrast of subjects. Using this mode can result in surreal other-worldly images. Other innovative art filters include Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Light Color, Light Tone, Grainy Film and Pin Hole.
Multiple Exposure
Multiple Exposure makes heightened creativity an easily-obtained objective. Two frames can be combined, and portions of one can be combined with those of another in any of the shooting modes. Images can be combined in playback mode or directly on the LCD through the use of the new TruePic V Image Processor.
12.3 Megapixel
The E-P2's powerful 12.3 megapixel Live-MOS sensor packs a powerful high-quality imaging punch for such a compact camera, allowing you to capture more detail than ever before.
Digital Leveler
The camera's Digital Leveler function is a highly functional and practical feature for such specialized requirements as architectural photography and other similar needs.
Movie Mode
Shoot movies at 30 frames per second in 720p with available manual control over aperture and shutter speed. This new level of control allows you to express your vision exactly how you want in your HD videos.
Manual in Movie Mode
The E-P2s manual movie mode (30fps and 720p) allows for independent control of aperture and shutter for expanded creative control. This fine control allows you to express your vision exactly how you want in your HD videos. Switch to shooting with Art Filters in Movie Mode for additional creative effects.
Electronic Image Stabilization
Electronic Image Stabilization compensates for camera shake while shooting in the movie mode.
Dust Reduction System
A Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it cannot interfere with the picture imaging at any time.
Live View Autofocus
With the seamless precision and simplicity of a point-and-shoot, the E-P2's Live View Autofocus system displays the images to be shot in complete focus on the camera's bright LCD the moment the shutter button is pressed half way down.
MF Assist
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.
Perfect Shot Preview
With Perfect Shot Preview, you can preview and select various photographic effects before you take the shot.
The ePortrait mode is also useful for smoothing out the facial features of your subjects, which is a tremendous plus for High Definition playback.
iEnhance for Radiant Colors
The E-P2 also includes a new picture mode called iEnhance that automatically selects the correct exposure settings for subjects such as close-ups, sports and action, landscapes, portraits and night scenes, but has the power to also apply additional adjustments to color and contrast within each shot based on the subject. For example, an already beautiful sunset looks even more beautiful when warm colors are more saturated or brilliant. It is able to intelligently calculate and apply additional adjustments to make a good image exceptional! iEnhance is automatically engaged while shooting in iAuto, or can be selected through the menu as a picture mode if shooting in M A S or P.
Face Detection
A Face Detection function reduces the chance of blurry faces when shooting groups of people-up to eight subjects at once-even if they're moving while you're pressing the shutter button.
Shadow Adjustment Technology
Shadow Adjustment Technology corrects for extreme light variations with high-tech efficiency. It can also be used in post-editing.
Aspect Ratios
The E-P2 lets you select one of four Aspect Ratios (4:3, 3.2, 16.9 and 6.6) that help frame your images to whatever proportions you'd like, for everything from conventional enlargements to viewing on widescreen monitors.
19 Automatic Scene Modes
The E-P2 is equipped with 19 scene-select modes for effortless picture taking. Standard scene modes like Night-Scene, Portrait and Landscape are easy-to-use solutions for everyday shooting. Edits can be made in the camera after the pictures are shot using the handy ePortrait Mode.
Full Manual Control
Full manual control for all programs and functions, including Aperture and Shutter. Shutter Priority, is at your fingertips whenever it is needed or preferred. Full automatic control is also a button-press away.
iAuto identifies your shooting intent (such as macro or action photography) and instantly adjusts the camera settings to achieve the best results.
Slideshows have never been easier or more fun to create. The E-P2's enhanced playback functions allow you to employ effective fade-in/fade-out techniques, add captivating musical soundtracks, and much more.
SDHC Media Cards
The E-P2 is capable of recording video to SDHC media cards to accommodate large files. (SDHC Class 6 cards are recommended.) Videos, stills and high-fidelity audio can also be output via HDMI cable-direct to any HD television.
Live Control
Live Control, an advanced camera management system, allows you to see the image being shot and the camera's controls all at once on the bright, colorful, high definition 3-inch HyperCrystal LCD. HyperCrystal LCDs offer many times the contrast of conventional LCD monitors, and also provide a wide viewing angle of 176º.
Background Music
Choose from five separate background music files to add to your still images or video productions.
