The astounding Olympus E-PL5 Compact System Camera with 14-42 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens in black gives you professional-grade shots in a design you can take anywhere.
Beautiful photos from a beautiful camera
More compact than a digital SLR, this unbelievable Olympus compact system camera houses a new, powerful 16.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor (as seen in the flagship OM-D E-M5), giving you striking resolution and impressive low-light performance.
Its images are the best in its class, displaying high resolution, rich tonal gradation, low noise and expansive dynamic range.
The E-PL5 Digital Camera makes it simple to take great pictures. Using its tiltable 3” LCD capacitive touchscreen, you can press in the appropriate area to capture those special moments perfectly.
Angle it through 170 degrees to a more convenient position if you're trying to take extra-high or extra-low shots or grabbing a self-portrait, where you'll have a full preview to frame the shot. There's even a customisable self-timer to grab the perfect moment.
Touchscreen gives complete control
The touch display also lets you focus and shoot in a flash with a fingertip. This Olympus compact houses one of the quickest-acting autofocus systems with an equally fast-response touchscreen.
Hone in on subjects to grab short-lived moments exactly as you want. This completely new photo-taking method makes for more fun and creativity in your photography. The fast autofocus system also includes 3D tracking for following moving objects better, so each image is sharper and clearer.
It's so easy to select camera modes with the E-PL5 Compact System Camera by using the touch screen instead of a mode dial to get the exact settings you want in a jiffy.
The perfect camera for beginners
Redefining the term user-friendly, this point-and-shoot couldn't be simpler to operate – it's expert–proof and beginner-friendly, uniting instinctive use with genuinely high quality.
Whichever mode you're using, the touch of a button is all that's needed to take you directly to the Live Guide, where you can make use of the clever built-in features, capitalising on all your shots. Slide the simple bar up and down to fine-tune colour saturation or other image appearance controls, and take pleasure in the camera's brilliant intuitiveness.
What's more, the fast-access mode dial and programmable smart buttons are directly accessible to let you take clever shortcuts for faster shots.
