High image quality, advanced technology and compact size combine in the Olympus E-PL1. The third generation of the camera maker’s PEN Micro Four Thirds series is a smart alternative to bulkier DSLRs because it maintains interchangeable lens capability while adding a pop-up flash and a direct HD video record button for easily toggling between taking stills and video.
With in-body image stabilization, camera shake is compensated for no matter what lens you use, as well as when shooting in low light or without a tripod. Also new is the Live Guide, which lets you adjust color, tone, sharpness and more, and preview the results before taking the shot. Joining the camera are the compact M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 and M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 lenses. Estimated Street Price: $599 (E-PL1); $699 (9-18mm); $599 (14-150mm).
