About the Olympus E-PM1

The Olympus E-PM1 Digital Camera with 14-42mm Lens (Black) starts you out with everything you need to take great photographs, from day one. As the name states, you'll receive both the E-PM1 camera body and the Micro Four Thirds M.Zuiko MSC Digital ED m14-42mm zoom lens (black lens). In addition, a number of essential accessories come included as well, such as a lithium-ion battery and battery charger.

Whether you're simply looking to lighten your load when it comes to photographing or you're an avid fan of the Micro Four Thirds genre, Olympus's PEN series of cameras provide you with a more lightweight option than full-sized DSLR rigs, but with numerous bells and whistles that still provide flexibility and creativity, far beyond that of a point-and-shot. With the Micro Four Thirds lens mount, you can choose from a number of optional lenses for the E-PM1 to suit your particular shooting style.

At the center of the image making is the generous 3.0" LCD. Used for composition and review of your footage, not to mention navigating the menu and for features such as Live View, this big, bright display features 460K pixels and the platform with which to compose your next great shot or epic short film. Of course, the 12.3Mp sensor and the TruePic VI image processor are the heart of the camera, taking what you see on the LCD screen and turning it into memories that will last a lifetime.

In addition to shooting JPEG and RAW stills, along with 3D stills in the MPO format, the E-PM1 also shoots the already mentioned 1080/60i HD video. Up to 29 minutes of continuous footage can be captured with stereo sound. Video clips can be shot in AVCHD or AVI formats and the Direct HD Movie Button on the camera switches you from still to movie mode with just a touch.

The E-PM1 also boasts stunning low light performance with the Olympus AF Illuminator - an LED beam up to 10 feet for faster focusing in dark settings. The camera also features and ISO up to 12,800 and the ability to attach an external flash. Other noteworthy features include the FAST AF System which provides up to 35-points of focus for unbelievable accuracy, 5 frames per second shooting, multiple filter options and much more.
