You don’t take a photograph, you make it!!!
Photography, an avant-garde art that has succeeded in claiming its stance over the years. With all the ever-escalating hype of gigantic electronic companies manifesting their presence, there are only a few bearing a true legacy in this regard. ’Olympus’ certainly is not a name anonymous to anyone with a passion for photography. Olympus has been the ultimate choice ever since photography became mainstream and the company has yet again nailed its eminence with their new Olympus PEN E-P3.
This exciting new camera will captivate and entice you. Not only does it have the potency to become a professional tool with its state-of-the-art features, but it can also be an amateur’s accessory given the ease of use it ensures. The Olympus PEN E-P3 bears great resemblance to its antecedents. Its elegant and classy looks give the impression that the new model entertains slight changes but this is not the scenario here. The Olympus PEN E-P3 is a package full of updates and refinements.
The previous model, E-P2 had little difference from the E-P1, except for the introduction of the VF-2 electronic view-finder but Olympus PEN E-P3 has addressed almost all the short-comings and criticisms of older models. Olympus PEN E-P3 has been refined to the point that one is forced to admit that E-P3 is what PEN has professed to be.
The changes are not apparent but they are there all the same. The most prominent of all is the built-in flash- specifically designed in a way so as not to intervene with the camera’s plate upfront.
Another eminent objective change is the removable hand grip held in place by a big screw. It leaves users with the decision to remove it entirely or to replace it for something genteel or á la mode.
It is within the body of PEN-EP3 that the most significant changes have been made. PEN-EP3 still uses a 12 Mega Pixel sensor unit but the camera processing has vastly improved with the Dual-core TruePic VI. TruePic VI equips the camera with technology that allows it to focus 120 times per second. The amplified processing speed pooled with the latest MSC lens and advanced camera/lens communication makes it a paramount gadget with up to 3X zoom.
The new PEN E-P3 is the first PEN that features a touch screen. PEN E-P3 has used Samsung’s Pentile dot layout to provide supreme resolution. The touch technology abounding the PEN-EP3 is comparable to that of the Apple phone’s standards. This touch screen equips one with the ability to enjoy some of the camera’s functions with a simple touch. Other than that, the panel allows one to not only fire shutter if desired but can also be used to set the focus. This is a radical improvement to the older models and an essential addition to camera’s features.
Among other very useful features is the embedded auto-focus illuminator light. The older versions were highly criticized for being handicapped to focus in low light. The movie recording specification has also been significantly upgraded, and the E-P3 can now capture full HD movies.
Changes have been made in the control layout as well. New buttons include the direct movie record and display buttons and the most remarkable feature is that the camera’s controls are fully customizable. The five buttons can now have their controls defined by the user. Among others, it also has the ability to display user-configurable shadow and highlight clipping warnings in live view.
The magnificent Olympus E-P3’s key features can be summarized as follows:
All that Olympus has offered has made it the most conventional yet user friendly prototype with its users ranging from beginners to professionals.
