The Olympus PEN E-PL8: Classic Look, New Features
Packed with a 180-degree flip-down LCD display and easier hold grip, PEN E-PL8 is surely an upgrade from its predecessor 2014's PEN E-PL7.
Olympus' PEN E-PL8 is a stylish compact Micro Four Thirds camera with a 16.1 megapixel. It has a new TruePicTM VII sensors, 3-axis stabilization, and an ISO range of 100-25,600. It also has a Live MOS sensor on it.
Although it is one of the latest camera from Olympus, PEN-EPL8 doesn't have the capability to shoot videos in 4k. It can; however, capture 1080p at 24 to 30 fps.
As mentioned, unlike the old cameras, the grip and controls have been upgraded. Grip is a lot smaller in front. Olympus states, in terms of overall coverage - it's been applied more cleanly for a less fussy appearance.
The shape of PEN-EPL8 is more rounded. Like the PEN-F series, there's bolder knurling to the dials on the top edge. Olympus made adjustments to pared back the UI and the clips mode has been attended too. By using iAuto, you can choose from an array of filters. There are at least 42 different settings and scenes to choose from.
Fond of selfies? Since PEN E-PL8's LCD can be displayed at180 degrees, it automatically switches into selfie mode. Dimensions of the LCD includes a 3-inch 1.037m dot touchscreen.
Olympus made sure as well that the new camera is WiFi-capable. This means you can remotely control PEN E-PL8 while shooting and recording. Rate is up to 1920/30p and 24 Mpbs from an Android device or iOS with of course, the Olympus' app.
The "old movie" effect by the compact camera is surprisingly popular from pro-photographers.
PEN E-PL8 will hit the stores in October for $550 (body-only). Lenses are also available depending on your needs. Not a bad deal if you want a nifty, compact camera.
