Highly stylish and packed full of creative capabilities the mirrorless E-PL9 makes your transition from taking smart phone pics to more advanced photography a beautifully easy and intuitive one. Brilliant for superior selfies, simple snaps or more artistic compositions, this edition of Olympus' renowned PEN range features enhanced touch screen operation, scintillating 4K resolution movies, simple-to-use Advanced Photo mode, a built-in flash, and combined Bluetooth & Wi-Fi for even easier wireless connection.
Selfie-friendly Touch Screen
The 3-inch LCD touch screen on the E-PL9 has a tilt mechanism that rotates 80 degrees up and a full 180 degrees down, letting you take superior quality selfies and shoot from every tricky angle in between. Enhanced 'smart phone-like' touch function lets you easily access a whole host of creative features, and adjust brightness, colour and contrast in the neatly clever AUTO mode, direct from the rear screen. It's the ideal camera for letting the automatic functions take care of settings before progressing to experimenting with manual adjustment.
Advanced Photos Made Easy
Advanced Photo mode gives you access to more professional-style photography via a simple-to-use menu. Easily access a host of effects such as Sweep Panorama, HDR and multiple exposure. Just pick the icon that most resembles the effect you want, and apply.
Stable 4K Movies
Shoot blisteringly clear 4K UHD movies for a stunningly fine and smooth level of detail, with the ability to extract that split-second perfect moment. Your footage is kept sharp and stable with 3-axis in-body stabilisation, which also keeps your stills ultra-crisp too.
Improved Wide Coverage Autofocus
The E-PL9 uses 121 focus points to accurately focus on the subject of your photo, anywhere in the frame. That means you can get the shot you want quicker, making it easier to capture fleeting moments or giving you more time to concentrate on your framing.
Finessed from previous models, the beautifully light and compact E-PL9 fits in the palm of your hand, but a bigger grip and dial makes taking pictures and manually adjusting supremely comfortable. And boasting a built-in flash, you can shoot in all low-light conditions with minimal blurring.
Compact Zoom Lens
The super slim and light M.ZUIKO Digital ED 14-42mm pancake lens supplied delivers stunningly crisp image quality from corner to corner. With its electronic zoom, you can control it remotely through the Olympus Image Share app (available on iOS and Android) and deliver smoother video zoom. Its premium construction features a durable metal lens mount, and its compact size is perfect for easy transport.
More Creative Effects
In addition to handy Scene mode, the E-PL9's range of Art Filters is increased to 16 to include Bleach Bypass and Instant Film. So it's simple to turn your photos and movies into striking artworks in an instant on your camera screen. It gives you so much potential to create visual masterpieces from your photos.
Easy Wireless Connections with Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
The E-PL9 now features combined Wi-Fi and Bluetooth giving you even greater options to wirelessly share your photos. It's perfect for posting them on social networking sites with the OI.Share app or emailing them to friends fast without any fuss.
Lenses & Cases
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. Click here to browse our selection.
