Olympus E-PM1 12.3MP Interchangeable Lens Camera w/ Accessories
I love this camera!
After many trips to multiple websites and stores I talked my husband into this camera! He was skeptical because he was not convinced we could get a camera at such a great price that takes wonderful pictures and easy to use. I am happy to report that this camera is both easy to use and the picture quality is awesome. Can wait to take it on our next trip!
I got this the other day. I love Olympus and their cameras. They are the best of all pen cameras I gave 5 stars because I believe in U
Olympus and QVC, but...... i have to send it back because the battery would not hold a charge. I love Olympus. I will reorder soon.
Thank you QVC AND OLYMPUS
Takes good pics......
Takes pretty good pics. Doesn't have viewfinder, tho. So far, that's my only complaint. I've only had a chance to use it outdoors and it did perform well. Have to try it for indoor shots and try some of the other settings, too. We'll see what happens.
Best MFT for the money, buy it!
This camera is a very good Micro Four Thirds camera. The kit lens 14-42, 35mm equivalent 28-84 is sharp and fast focusing. Image Stabilization built into the body is a plus.
The built in Art Filters are Great! Very easy to change modes from Auto to Manuel if you desire. Picture Review, edit/delete very quick and easy.
Small size and light weight makes for perfect take along camera!
I can not say enough about this gem of a camera. Buy it you will not be sorry.
i bought this camera a month ago and wow i took it out of the box and the photographer came out in me i dont put it down much and it keeps up with me taking thousands of pics ive even got asked to do a wedding and i know with this camera that the pics will be professional looking
Almost as good as my Nikon D3000
I find myself grabbing this over my Nikon these days. The pinhole art filter takes excellent portrait photos with wonderful colors! With my Nikon I was ALWAYS having to import into photoshop and change the color hues because they were so off. With this camera no need!
The shutter speed is almost as fast as my Nikon as well (the Nikon is a true DSLR and this is a mirrorless) I had a PEN2 previously and sold it to get the Nikon. I sure missed the filters when taking landscape photos! So glad to have them back now. The quality on the Nikon is just slightly more crisp but they are pretty dang close.
My only complaint about these cameras is where the SD card is located isn't as easy as I would prefer to take in and out, but its so not a big deal. Great battery life too. If your on the fence...just do it! You won't be sorry
A Great Camera - Very Easy to use with pro results
The Olympus E-PM1 is known as a DSLM - essentially a DSLR without the mirror. This results in image quality far superior to a regular point-and-shoot, particularly in low light situations.
The E-PM1 is very portable/small, yet has a sensor nearly 10 times larger than a regular point-and-shoot camera.
If you want to take your photography to the next level but still want ease of use (as easy as a point-and-shoot), the Olympus E-PM1 is a great choice.
Remember though, this is a prosumer camera that uses interchangeable lenses - if you want to zoom in from a far distance you need to buy a telephoto lens (150mm will work for most...).
This product is NOT anything it was marketed to be. The zoom is horrible. EVEN WITH THE extra piece and yada, yada, yada that it was marketed to be. I will be returning it and i would not suggest it be purchased. For the price there are a lot nicer camera's out there with better zoom and functions. Reviewing and deleting are not quite EZ either.....
I take photos for competition, for a living and for fun. This is a nice camera that I believe will be appropriate for all categories. Lens filters are available on the internet. Certainly glad to have the camera home, shopped hard between Nikon and Olympus but the color of the case (I love purple) and the easy payments made this the camera I chose. Customer service is always friendly, helpful and professional.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CAMERA!!
This camera takes wonderful pictures they are clear and the art filters make amazing pictures. Took pictures of my grandson riding his bike for the first time and it took them fast enough that when I downloaded them it looked like he was riding it in front of me. The most amazing pictures I have ever took so glad I have this camera I have extra lens 40-150mm digital lens that makes close up pictures amazing Love this camera if your undecided try it I'm really glad I did so much better than a point and shoot and not heavy and awkward like a DSLR.
good camera for beginner
this is a great little camera for a beginner just getting into photography. I works like a standard camera but with interchangable lenses. This was not a good value for me. I have been using a slr camera for a great number of yrs now and with arthritis I thought this would work well as it is lighter. I was wrong, yes it is lighter but does not even come close to a slr camera. Sending this back.
