Olympus announced recently the highly anticipated successor to the Olympus PEN E-P3 digital camera, the Olympus PEN E-P5. The PEN E-P4 never saw the light because the number four is considered an inauspicious number in Japan.
Olympus’s latest creation is a high-end device, with a shutter speed of 1/8000 second, integrated Wi-Fi capability, a 16-megapixel sensor, a greatly improved autofocus, and a 2.36 million pixel LCD screen.
More advanced photographers will certainly appreciate the various manual controls, which allow easy adjustment of the camera at the touch of a button.
The PEN E-P5 keeps its predecessors’ retro look, but includes some new modern features, especially its five-axis optical stabilization system, convenient for telephoto shots or long exposures.
The device uses standard Micro Four Thirds lenses and the camera body retails for $1,000.
