Product information

The Olympus PEN E-P5 delivers groundbreaking image quality without the bulk of a DSLR. It also features a mechanical shutter speed of up to 1/8000s - just perfect for bringing out the very best in high-speed lenses for full defocusing effects in bright shooting conditions. 16.1-megapixel sensor allows for detailed enlargements and smooth Full HD video capture. When you’re done, integrated Wi-Fi makes backing everything up simple.

This kit includes a versatile 14-42mm lens and EVF attachment for true-to-life DSLR style framing.

Key benefits:

  • Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, the E-P5 makes it possible to connect your camera and smartphone. See your camera’s live view right on your phone’s touchscreen and even shoot at a distance by releasing the shutter from your phone. You can even use this feature with a timer countdown to easily include yourself in group photos. Assign GPS data to your photos, or send your selected shots straight to your phone and then share them with your friends.
  • Take minute details to new extremes with Super Spot AF, which is capable of focusing on specific parts of your image at a touch. High-speed release time lag mode reduces the time between shutter release and exposure to a split-second, capturing even the fastest-moving subjects.
  • The two dials on the E-P5 give you more flexibility. Simply adjust aperture and exposure, then - by changing the function of both dials with a quick flick of the lever - adjust ISO and white balance with exactly the same action.
  • Get Olympus’ most advanced image stabilisation system ever. It even detects specific axes where stabilisation is not required, such as for panning effects.
  • Adding the viewfinder gives you a magnification factor of 1.48x (35mm conversion: 0.74x). It’s also extremely sharp with a resolution of 2.36 million dots.
  • Get as creative with your photos. Tell a story by combining several shots in a single frame as a collage-like composition, or achieve a striking finished look by adding one of 12 Art Filters.
  • With high-speed processing capabilities of up to 9 frames per second, you can easily capture even the fastest-moving subjects.
  • Includes lens, electronic viewfinder, battery, charger, body cap, shoulder strap, USB cable, AV cable and Viewer 3 software.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.
