Our 2nd featured camera for the holidays is a mirrorless interchangeable camera that we told you about earlier in the fall. Small, compact,easy & fully featured, you really should consider this as your go-to camera for any number of picture situations. Allow us to present to you again the Olympus PEN E-PM1... The PEN E-PM1 is the smallest, lightest, and the most portable Olympus PEN camera yet packs a powerful punch with the same amazing image quality, lightning-fast speed, and 1080i high-definition (HD) video offered by the recently introduced PEN E-P3 and PEN E-PL3. The E-PM1 represents the culmination of Olympus's quest to maximize the size/weight reduction advantages of the Micro Four Thirds System standard. The camera body alone weighs just 217 grams, while the total in actual usage (with the standard zoom lens, flash, memory card and rechargeable battery) is still the world's lightest at 401 grams. Available in a choice of six fashionable colors, this PEN model will appeal to a wide range of users with many different needs and requirements. This camera also boasts sequential shooting performance of 5 fps and image quality built on the same advanced technology that powers the E-P3, the just announced new flagship of the PEN series, continuing with Olympus's policy of providing the maximum image quality performance to all PEN models. Better-than-ever image quality is made possible by the new 12.3-megapixel High Speed Live MOS Sensor with 1080i HD movie compatibility and the new TruePic VI image processing engine. High-sensitivity shooting at ISO12800 is also possible.This camera also features the Art Filters well acclaimed with other Olympus cameras so that anyone can easily enjoy photographic expressions that used to require complicated image processing. The E-PM1 incorporates six of the most popular Art Filters, allowing users to express their unique creative vision with both still images and movies. Other features include:
  • External optional flash included (hotshoe mount)
  • 1080i AVCHD video recording
  • Dedicated video recording button
  • Face detection with eye detection autofocus
  • Built-in autofocus illuminator
  • 3D shooting mode
And here's the best part: The E-PM1 sells in a kit with their new 14-42 mm II R f3.5/5.6 Zoom for only $499.95!  We have it in stock in white (as shown), black , silver, brown, purple & pink! This just may be the holiday camera you're looking for! So come in and take a look at the Olympus PEN Mini!.
