    After the success of the highly acclaimed OM-DE-M5 camera, Olympus’s PEN E-PL5 takes it up another notch. It is perhaps the camera that marks a significant progression from the other Olympus PEN series.

     

    Without a doubt, the previous versions have impressed us by and far with their super-fast and compact performance and features, but this one is definitely a cut above the rest. This is Olympus’s latest compact micro four thirds camera with 16 mega pixel. The OK button in the centre lets you easily navigate and explore all the options. There are in built custom menus, which are easy to spot and understand, thanks to the distinct color coding. Also, if the settings seem daunting, then there is an option to switch them off.

     

    Some of the key features of this sleek camera include a micro four thirds lens mount, a 3 inch touch screen, which can be tilted and used for self-portraits as well, a front grip which is removable, an HDR bracketing, a mode dial, a super impressive HD video and stereo sound, 12 creative art filters in HD movie and still modes, an SDXC card and Eye –Fi compatibility, and an 8 Fps high speed shooting. The camera also has a 16 MP Four thirds sensor and an AP2 accessory port for additional accessories such as the electronic view finder. Olympus PEN E-PL5 is available in 3 shades; black, white and silver. The front section of the camera provides a solid hold and grip to the user.

     

    The body of the camera is made out of metal and the battery section is covered with tough plastic over metal with a locking mechanism. The double axis in body stabilization ensures that you get blur-free still shots and movies with any lens. To add to its key features, it also includes a pop-up flash instead of an in built one, and this comes with a cover on top. The battery is extremely strong and one can take up to 400 shots on a single charge. The shutter response, focus, and continuous shooting are all very quick and excellent as well.

     

    The detection mode works extremely well on this camera, and it can be set in such a way that it gives priority only to faces on either right eye or left eye. There is a focus assist lamp as well which helps to focus in dim light shots. There are several movie mode features as well out of which the one key mode is the art fade movie effect. This changes over from one shot mode to another, and it also has a One-Push tele-converter which helps crop movies. One can also take pictures while recording, which enhances the experience even further.
