Olympus’ Art Filter technology empowers you to take extraodinary pictures without the need for tedious editing on your computer. Pre-programmed into every OM-D, PEN, Creator series and E-5 SLR camera are creative filter effects that transform your photo from normal to dramatic in one click, right before your eyes.

Each Art Filter recreates the look and feel of contemporary film, printing and optical effects, and can even be used in HD video recordings to give your movies that special look. Every filter effect displayed live on the LCD screen before you snap, so you can see exactly how the scene is transformed right before your eyes.
The range and capability of Art Filters are constantly refined with each successive new PEN, Creator or SLR camera model.
The examples below taken with the PEN E-PL2 demonstrate the incredibly wide range of creative options possible with Art Filters.
