Description

Beautifully designed and engineered with all the very latest technology, the E-PL3 might be small in size but it is certainly big on features. It promises all the razor-sharpness, background blur and vivid colors of a professional SLR camera - despite being a fraction of the size. These powerful optics are all thanks to pixel-perfect lenses, a brand new 12.3 million pixel sensor and an optimized image engine TruePic VI processor. This innovative model also features a 3-inch tilt LCD, enabling maximum visibility and flexibility in both shooting and playback mode - from any angle. This is also particularly convenient and beneficial when using the full HD movie functionality that comes with this new PEN generation.
