Olympus PEN E-PL1 12.3MP Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko MINI REVIEW

Olympus PEN E-PL1 12.3MP Live MOS Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens (Black) (Electronics)
Finally, Olympus has delivered on the promise of a full-featured high-performance dslr-like digital camera that is truly portable and retains the controls and flexibility of a full-sized heavy dslr. Being able to travel without the bulk and weight of a full size dslr bag and accessory lenses is the biggest advantage to getting this camera. You can now take it with you and and your travel weight is well under 5 LBS with the camera, battery, and 2 lenses.

The sensor and imaging engine are the key differentiators in this camera as they help this camera with high iso setting images by keeping the noise levels down thereby making this a terrific camera for low light scenarios.

What good is taking along a travel digital camera if it cannot produce dslr like quality images? The Olympus Pen system with the detachable lenses still weigh more than a point and shoot, but weigh far less and take up much less space in a camera bag than a full sized dSLR camera kit with lenses and accessories.

Having the camera with you at all times will ensure that you get the rare photo or candid that usually happens only a few times a year. Carrying an Olympus Pen with a lens attached is so much easier on the shoulders and back than say a Canon Digital Rebel or a Nikon with the kit lens.

Before you make that upgrade to a dSlR, check out the Olympus Pen and you will not be disappointed. You will find that it can do almost 90-95% of what an entry or medium advanced consumer dSLR can do function and image quality wise.

You'll look even less dorky by carrying and shooting with such a cool looking and innovative camera.
