Digital SLR

12.3 MP Digital Camera

14-42mm f3.5/5.6 Zoom Lens

Full 1080 HD Video

5 FPS Sequential Shooting

3" Widescreen LCD


Simplified Control:

Operating the camera is more intuitive with the newly designed user interface

The innovative screen activates popular menu options such as Art Filters, iAuto, Scene Modes, and Movie

The on-screen graphics have also been updated with a sleeker font design and an automatic pop-up guide in the menu screen

The E-PM1's Live Guide system allows you to preview effects as you adjust them - before the image is even captured

Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, tone, etc.

Excellent Shots - Effortlessly:

iAuto automatically identifies the scene you're shooting - portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport - and adjusts the settings to optimize results

The E-PM1 is also equipped with 23 Scene-Select modes for effortless picture taking, including new 3D mode, Fireworks, Sunset, Children, Macro and Panorama, to name a few

There are even three scene modes that are specific to shooting with Olympus? conversion lenses to optimize the performance of those lenses

Three-Inch, Bright Widescreen LCD:

This 460 dot high-resolution screen is big and bright enough to let you shoot and share photos and HD video with ease

Get Wireless:

No need for cables or even a computer

Upload or email images directly from your camera with an optional PP-1 PENPAL or Eye-Fi card

The E-PM1 is also capable of recording stills and video to SD, SDHC, SDXC and UHS-I media cards


12.3 Megapixels:

12.3 megapixel sensor is optimized to maximize the performance of all mZuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition

Improvements in the sensor makes shooting in low light and Full HD movie recording possible

Stabilization Technology in the Body, Not in the Lenses:

Say goodbye to blurry images

Olympus' in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light!

Face Detection with Eye Detect:

Nail the focus for every portrait photo, every time

Face detection AF employs an "Eye Detect AF" that adjusts focus automatically on the subject's eyes during portrait shooting and can even be adjusted to focus on the right, left or near-side eye

Face Detection function captures up to eight faces, reducing the chance of blurred subjects when shooting several people at once

Advanced Shadow Adjustment Technology:

You no longer need to worry about the extreme contrast between dark and bright areas in your images

E-PM1's Shadow Adjustment Technology corrects for extreme light variations with high-tech efficiency either before image capture or during post-capture edits


Full 1080 HD Video:

Shoot up to 29 minutes of 1080 60i HD video and stereo sound in either AVCHD or AVI formats

A Direct HD Movie Button switches you from still to movie mode with just the press of a button

In-Camera Art Filters:

Six in-camera Art Filters (Pop Art, Soft Focus, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama and Dramatic Tone) can be used in all shooting modes as well as filming HD movies

E-PM1 also includes bracketing up to seven images, each image with a different applied Art Filter

Since they're built into the camera, these Art Filters can achieve dramatic results on the go without the need for computer or editing software

Wide Variety of Lenses and Accessories:

A range of interchangeable lenses, accessories and flashes are compatible with the E-PM1 to support all different types of photography needs

3D Shooting:

Add a new dimension to your photographs in any mode from macro to landscape with Olympus 3D technology. By simply selecting the 3D Photo Mode, releasing the shutter, and slowly panning, the camera will automatically take a second image from a slightly different perspective. The 3D data is processed in-camera for easy display on 3D televisions or laptops.


AF Illuminator:

Addition of this super luminosity LED beam allows the camera to focus faster in low light up to almost 10 feet

Increased ISO Sensitivity:

Stunning low light photos are a click away with an increased ISO sensitivity to 12,800

Attachable Flash Included:

This camera provides the flexibility to attach a flash to your camera via the accessory port, or leave it at home for maximum portability


5 FPS Sequential Shooting:

With the E-PM1 you can take up to five photos a second, allowing you to easily capture that perfect shot, especially when your subject is moving

World's Fastest Auto Focus:

FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF System is able to focus at an incredible speed and offers 35 separate focus points that are spread over nearly the entire sensor, which makes it possible for pin-point accurate focusing on small subjects wherever they appear in the frame

Selectable 3x3 groups within the 35-point area are especially effective when shooting active subjects

Improved Color Reproduction:

TruePic VI Image Processor, designed specifically for the Olympus PEN, features Real Color Technology for improved color reproduction (especially colors such as emerald green, yellow, and gold) and color gradation

The faster processor also allows for a shorter recovery time between shots

Improved Lens Technology:

High-precision engineering and an improved internal focusing mechanism have allowed the Olympus MSC (Movie+Still Compatible) lenses to auto focus quickly, smoothly and silently, perfect for stills and movies


Fast Shutter Response:

Never miss a shot again with the E-PM1's fast shutter response time of less than 60 milliseconds

TruePic VI feature allows for reduced shot-to-shot time by shortening the black-out time between shots

Accessory Port:

E-PM1 incorporates a port for connecting accessories including flashes, MAL-1 Macro Light, EMA-1 Microphone adapter, PENPAL and the VF-2 viewfinder

In-Camera Slideshow with Sound:

Slideshows have never been easier or more fun to create

E-PM1's enhanced playback functions allow you to employ effective fade-in/fade-out techniques, control the movie/still mix and speed, add captivating musical soundtracks, and much more

Professional Audio Sound Capture:

Take videos that are able to capture uncompressed CD-quality 16bit/44.1kHz Linear PCM stereo recording or AC3 Dolby Digital audio

Easy Photo & Video Playback on your HDTV:

E-PM1 makes sharing your content easier than ever

Using the HDMI output, just connect the E-PM1 to your HDTV with an HDMI cable (not included) and navigate the camera's menus from the comfort of your couch

This is perfect for sharing your pictures and movies with an audience

Multiple Exposure Shooting:

A Multiple Exposure function enables you to be creative right in the camera

Multiple images can be captured and combined to create one unique image. The creative possibilities are endless!

Additional Aspect Ratios:

E-PM1 lets you select one of five Aspect Ratios (4:3 / 3:2 / 16:9 / 6:6 / 3:4) that frame your images to whatever proportions you'd like, for everything from conventional enlargements to viewing on widescreen monitors

Proven Dust Reduction Systen:

Olympus' Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images, even after changing lenses

Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it doesn't interfere with the picture imaging at any time


Capturing beautiful portraits is easy with the ePortrait Mode that enables you to soften shadows and smooth your subject?s complexion either before image capture or during post-capture edits

Live View Magnification:

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
