SLR-class 16 Megapixel LiveMOS sensor with built-in IS

The high-performance 16 MP LiveMOS sensor and TruePic VI image processor from the acclaimed OM-D series have been incorporated into this new camera for outstanding SLRlevel picture quality, superb colour reproduction, and excellent high ISO capability with low picture noise. The in-camera image stabiliser automatically shifts the sensor to compensate for camera-shake up to three shutter speeds, for all lenses.

Interactive 3-inch touch-screen that tilts

The new capacitive LCD touch-screen significantly enhances the photographic experience: “Touch-Shutter” technology captures snapshots at a tap of the screen, focusing where you touch. A special LiveGuide mode enables beginners to confidently make adjustments to key camera settings via intuitive touch-sensitive slider controls with the results shown live. Navigational and image zoom control in picture playback are touch-enabled and camera settings can be adjusted through the touch-interface of the new Super-Control Panel. The E-PL5’s 460,000 pixel LCD screen can be angled upwards up to 180 degrees for selfportraits, and downwards to 65 degrees for overhead shooting. Its 16:9 wide format is ideal for Full HD 1080/60i video recording.

Super fast autofocus and responsiveness

Olympus’ “FAST-AF” technology means faster-than-SLR focusing speeds so that important photographic moments are rarely missed. The FAST-AF system makes use of the speed of Olympus’ M.Zuiko MSC* designated lenses, high-speed focusing algorithms, and a very short shutter delay. The TruePic VI picture engine processes pictures and videos rapidly, meaning you can snap at will without having to wait on the camera. Sequential shooting is a speedy 8 frames per second at full resolution (3.5 fps in the focus tracking mode).

Mobile connectivity

For social media connectivity via smartphones and tablet devices, the E-PL5 fully supports the new (optional) FlashAir SD storage/wireless card that turns the camera into a wireless access point. Images captured to the card can be easily viewed on any smartphone, tablet or computer through a web browser. The new Olympus Image Share (O.I Share) smartphone app for iOS and Android makes picture browsing on smartphones and tablets, and picture transfer from the E-PL5 to Facebook and Twitter, simple and quick.
