Olympus 262829B overview

  • 1Description

Cloaked in classic black, the Olympus E-P2 is a hybrid photo and HD movie camera that boldly brings fun and simplicity back to SLR quality. It is part of the Micro Four Thirds (4/3) camera system that enables pro-quality still and video imaging abilities in a small, unassuming package. Along with a line of compact M.Zuiko digital lenses, the system is compatible with all existing 4/3-format fixed-prime and zoom lenses from 7mm through 800mm (114° to 1.5° AOV).

The camera is essentially a 4/3-format DSLR minus the prism and mirror housing, hence the smaller body size. Images can be composed and edited using the E-P2's 3" HyperCrystal LCD, which features anti-reflective coatings on its surface to enable live viewing of 100% of the image area under the brightest of lighting conditions. When shooting with manual focus, a 5x magnification of the center of the frame pops up as a focusing aid each time you adjust the focusing ring. (This magnification can be can be manually increased up to 10x.)

The E-P2 features a port for the optional VF-2 electronic viewfinder or the optional EMA-1 external microphone. Clad in ergonomically-designed stainless-steel body panels, the Olympus E-P2 takes many design queues from the Olympus Pen F, a popular half-frame SLR that made its initial debut in 1959. But unlike the original Pen F, the E-P2 has the ability to produce vividly-detailed still photographs and HD video with stereo sound, both of which can be enhanced post-capture using the E-P2's advanced in-camera retouching and audio dubbing tools.

The E-P2 includes a picture mode called iEnhance, which analyzes colors and brightness. The new mode mimics what the naked eye sees. For example, a beautiful sunset looks awesome in person and generally seems to fade when captured in an image. With iEnhance, the warm yellow and orange colors are heightened to be brilliant and closer to the actual scene. The result is exceptionally clear imaging with a dramatically lifelike color. iEnhance can be used in any shooting mode - from program to manual - and automatically engages when in iAuto. This, along with the 8 art filters, allows you to take perfect, creative images.

Other features found on the Olympus E-P2 include i-Auto mode, dust reduction technology, in-camera image stabilization-which enables low-light hand-held shooting with all 4/3-system lenses, advanced shooting modes, and creative post-capture editing tools.

This kit includes a compact 14-42mm M.Zuiko Digital zoom lens, which with an angle-of-view of 74-28.5°, is an equivalent to a 28-85mm lens on a full-frame DSLR.

Compact Design with Pro-system Capabilities
The Olympus E-P2 combines the casual, easy-to-use persona of a pocket-size point-and-shoot camera with the imaging capabilities of a pro-level DSLR. As an extension of Olympus' proven 4/3 imaging system, the E-P2 can shoot casual stills and video as well as complex images with equal ease and precision.
High-Definition Stills and Video
The Olympus E-P2 enables high-definition capture of still and video images while maintaining full auto-focus functionality and image stabilization with all 4/3-format optics. And unlike video-enabled DSLRs, the Olympus E-P2 maintains full AF in video mode.
Manual Movie Mode
Manual movie mode allows for independent control of aperture and shutter for expanded exposure and creative control when shooting HD movies.
C-AF Tracking and AF Target Registration
The E-P2's C-AF Tracking and AF Target Registration locks your subject into focus, and constantly adjusts focus and brightness whether you or your subject is moving.
iAuto mode
This intelligent-auto mode uses advanced automatic detection technology to allow the camera to recognize the six most commonly used scenes automatically.
iEnhance for Radiant Colors
iEnhance analyzes colors and brightness and mimics what the naked eye sees. For example, a beautiful sunset looks awesome in person and generally seems to fade when captured in an image. With iEnhance, the warm yellow and orange colors are heightened to be brilliant and closer to the actual scene.
HDMI Control from Your HDTV Remote
Connect the E-P2 to your HDTV with an optional HDMI cable and use your HDTV's remote to control playback functions and navigate the camera's menus from the comfort of your favorite couch or chair.
In-Body Image Stabilization
An in-camera stabilization system allows for up to 4-stops EV of movement compensation with all 4/3 and Micro-4/3 format lenses.
Dust Reduction
Olympus' Dust Reduction, which runs an ultrasonic cleaning cycle each time you power up the camera, helps keep dust particles out of the image path.
Multiple Exposure
The multiple exposure function allows you to shoot one shot, then another, and combine them in real time, or capture both shots separately and combine them in the camera later.
Multi-Aspect Shooting
The E-P2 provides four aspect ratios that serve as masks to frame your image to the desired proportions, including: the standard 4:3 aspect ratio that is suited to an 8 x 10" enlargement; the 16:9 aspect ratio that will display your images beautifully on a widescreen television; and other popular aspect ratios such as 3:2 and 6:6. The Multi-Aspect Shooting further expresses your creative vision when combined with Art Filters and multiple exposures.
Stereo Audio Sound
The E-P2 features uncompressed CD-quality 16 bit/44.1kHz Linear PCM stereo recording capability to capture the rich sound quality of your scene. It has the versatility to record and play back in WAV format and can record with its built-in stereo microphone or the optional EMA-1 external microphone. Whether recording audio while shooting a video or adding audio by recording a narration to your still images, the E-P2's audio sounds great.
Digital Leveler
The E-P2 is equipped with an internal digital level sensor that detects the camera's pitch and roll and indicates it on the control panel. This Digital Leveler is a tremendous benefit when capturing architecture and landscapes.
Magnified Focus Assist
The E-P2 provides two optional methods to help the user focus: a Magnified Focus (MF) Assist Function and Magnification Display. When using manual focus, the MF Assist feature aids with critical focus by allowing you to zoom in on part of the image by simply turning the focusing ring on the front of the lens. The Magnification Display enables you to selectively enlarge the image on the LCD at the touch of a button. This mode works for both autofocus and manual focus.
18 x 18 Metering Modes
This mode divides the image area into an 18 x 18 grid, metering each of the 324 separate cells to obtain optimum exposure. In addition to 324-division ESP metering, center-weighted metering and spot metering modes are also available.
Scene-Select 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. Capturing beautiful portraits is easy with the new ePortrait Mode. It enables you to smooth your subject's skin - all in the camera and before capture.
Art Filters
  • Diorama: Enhances a composition's depth of field to give the image an unreal touch and model-like structure.
  • Cross Process: Returns depictions with striking color and contrast shifts akin to those achieved through the cross processing technique in silver halide film development.
  • Pop Art: Enhances colors, making them stronger and more vivid to create high-impact pictures that express the happy, light-hearted feeling of the pop art style.
  • Soft Focus: Creates a soft tone which gives pictures an ethereal, otherworldly atmosphere. It renders pictures as though they were veiled in heavenly light, without obscuring details.
  • Pale & Light Color: The foreground is enclosed in flat, gentle light - similar to a flashback scene in a film
  • Light Tone: Creates a picture with a gentle feel to it, similar to one taken under artificial lighting. Both the shade and highlight areas are rendered very softly.
  • Grainy Film: This effect recreates the feeling of reality evoked by grainy, high-contrast monochrome pictures.
  • Pin Hole: Reduces the peripheral brightness like an image seen through a pinhole. Added to this is a unique color tone that results in a style that has an air of secrecy.

Olympus 262829B reviews

E-P2 Pen Digital Camera w/ 14-42mm Zuiko Lens (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from May Be the Perfect Travel Camera For travel and casual shooting, my excellent DSLR is heavy and large, my small digital too noisy at any but the lowest ISO. The Olympus E-P2 is small and light and with extra lenses and flash fits in a tiny bag. Images are excellent - even in low light - though the contrast-based AF is slower than the phase contrast on most DSLRs, especially in low light. TIP: AF is faster using a single AF point instead of the default multiple point setting, and updating the firmware is said to help as well. Build quality is excellent and overall I am delighted with the camera and the micro 4/3 system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet Camera Bought the body+lens kit combo. Added the Lumix 20mm lens and the VF-2 eyepiece. The latter two items made a great camera body really sing. I use manual focus almost exclusively and have found the assisted focusing very effective with the viewfinder. The whole setup is just slightly smaller than my old Nikon F4 with a 50mm prime on it. I've been waiting many years for someone to make an interchangeable lens system on a modestly sized body and this is why I finally purchased this. DSLR's are cumbersome monsters. Almost purchased the Lumix body, but was sold on the EP2 for the viewfinder...far superior to the one offered for the Lumix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Camera We have only had this camera a few weeks, but are enjoying it. It's weighted well for holding, and perfect size. We are still learning all the features, but it is taking really nice pictures. We use it mainly indoors so far for pictures of the kids and pets, (winter and rainy out) but it is taking beautiful pictures and the color in the photo are just right. Even though it does a good job with low light, we will be getting a flash to improve pictures. We are really excited as we learn how to work all the functions and take variety of photos. Only complaint is too much movement (wiggly kids) will be blurry. That may be a camera thing, or a user thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera I purchased the camera to use when traveling, I have found it to be very functional. It takes great shots, can be used in a variety of settings and is light to carry and easy to pack. It worked well under low light conditions and also in photographing fireworks using the pre-programmed settings. It does seem to use of its battery fairly quickly and is a little too much shutter lag, but its benefits far outweigh its cons. This is my first Olympus and I have been quite pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't put it down! With the optional VF-2 electronic viewfinder this is a great compact camera, especially for one who wears glasses for reading. No more glasses on and off between the viewfinder and LCD display as with a DSLR. EVERY menu is available in the viewfinder! Simply adjust the VF-2 diopter and that's it. I am even considering selling my Canon 5DII in favor of this camera alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great camera cool retro feel for a small camera it delivers super sharp photos.plenty of functions for those that like to experiment with their photos and the added bonus of full manual control. has a solid feel about it and when shooting in jpeg the photos are excellent. so far theres nothing i dont like about camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camera used for action stills and video On an action video shoot the Canon P-2 camera refused to turn on, so we grabbed the Olympus E-P2 and got spectacular footage. The camera started out as a back-up but became the primary....easy to use and rock solid dependable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good travel camera Bought the camera (with view finder and flash)to avoid carrying my Nikon D700 and f2.8 lenses that weigh a ton. The camera is very good as a travel camera, but forget about photos in low light. It simply will not focus. Picture quality is first rate, I use jpg format and am amazed at the overall quality of the photos. Build quality (excepting the lens) is excellent, the build of the lens leaves a great deal to be desired although as I said before the photos are first rate. By all means GET the view finder, it is indispensable in bright sun light. The flash is OK, nothing spectacular, but it does the job as a fill flash. The camera has been knocked for slow focus, but I find it no problem for 95% of my work. The menu system works great once you figure out how to use it (takes a little time but worth it).
