THE NEW PEN THE PEN CONCEPT People always want more from their digital camera. More power. More creative capabilities. More versatility. They want the amazing picture quality and abilities of a DSLR, but not its larger size. At Olympus, our goal was to develop an interchangeable lens camera as portable as the original PEN and packed with innovative features. And with the development of the Micro Four Thirds System, weve created the worlds smallest 12.3-megapixel interchangeable-lens camera. REVOLUTIONARY SIZE In DSLRs, the image is viewed directly through the lens, reflected by a reflex mirror through a pentaprism, and seen through the viewfinder. This imaging structure contributes to the DSLRs larger size. To reduce body size and create the PEN, the mirror was eliminated in the Micro Four Thirds System and the lens-mount diameter has been reduced by about 6 mm. Using this technology, the PEN maintains the same image-sensor size as the conventional Four Thirds System. The result? Much smaller, slimmer cameras and more compact lenses, without compromising image quality. Meet the new Olympus PEN. Start creating with the new E-P1. DSLR quality, compact portability and multimedia capabilities make it easy to capture it all. With a 12.3-megapixel high-speed Live MOS Sensor, new TruePic V image-processing engine, Dust Reduction System and In-body Image Stabilization, the E-P1 delivers DSLR picture quality and performance. And thanks to Micro Four Thirds technology, you even have the ability to change lenses. The E-P1 comes packed with unique features including six Art Filters, HD Movie mode, Linear PCM audio, in-camera slide show and Multi Aspect Ratio shootingproviding endless creative capabilities. So what will you create?
B R I N G S T Y L E T O Y O U R P H O T O S W I T H A R T F I LT E R S The E-P1 gives you the option to apply Art Filter effects to pictures and movies. Each filter creates a unique look and style. Pop Art super-saturates colors and creates brighter, more vivid photographs. Soft Focus creates a dreamlike quality, giving photographs a fantasy feel. Pale & Light Color brings soft, flat light and pastel coloring to your photos to create a feeling of romance. Light Tone brightens your entire image, including its darker areas, providing more detail and light. Grainy Film creates more dramatic shots. It produces a gritty black-and-white film quality, giving your photographs an edgier look. Pin Hole darkens the outer edges of your photograph, enhancing the subject in the center. This creates the feeling of a new atmosphere and brings the photograph to life. When shooting with an Art Filter, the E-P1 captures your images in both RAW and JPEG format. The original image is saved as a RAW file and the Art Filter image as a JPEG, preserving both the Art Filter image and the original shot. C R E AT E A M U LT I P L E E X P O S U R E Take your photography farther. Capture your favorite shots and overlay up to two images to create a multiple exposure image. You can compose and shoot your next frame while your base shot is on the LCD. This way, you see what your final result will look like even before you take the shot.
You can select and operate the controls without entering into any menus. Any changes you make are applied to the image in real time, allowing you to compose, edit and shoot pictures without stopping. With the E-P1, you have the option of shooting in Live Control or with the Super Control Panel. C R E AT E H D M O V I E S With the E-P1 you can shoot HD-quality movies. Record in standard 4:3 (640 x 480, 30 fps) or the widescreen-compatible 16:9 (1280 x 720, 30 fps) aspect ratio. The image sensor in the E-P1 is much larger than in an HD video camera, and offers higher image quality for your movies. And because the E-P1 has SLR capabilities, it provides other unique features you cant get from an ordinary video camera. You can use different lenseseven shoot your movie with a 17mm. The E-P1 also has in-body Electrical Image Stabilization, so your movies will be crystal clear with any lens. You even have the ability to apply photographic effects, including Art Filters, to all your movies. In addition, the still-image-save function
PA L E & L I G H T
makes it possible to save the last frame in the movie as a still image. You can even connect the E-P1 to an HDMI-equipped TV set with the optional HDMI mini-cable and view your HDmovies and images with stereo audio. RECORD IN HIGH-QUALITY STEREO PCM AUDIO The linear PCM systems non-compressed digital recording delivers superior audio quality. You can easily add audio files to a still image after you shoot. C R E AT E S L I D E S H O W S W I T H S O U N D Turn your still images and movies into a slide show with music or dub in voices. The E-P1 has five background-music options as well as slide show control functions, fade-in/out of still images, audio dubbing, background music and audio volume adjustment. MF ASSIST FUNCTION AND M A G N I F I C AT I O N D I S P L AY To enable accurate manual focusing, the E-P1 provides MF Assist and Magnification Display. In S-AF + MF or MF, the MF Assist enables you to zoom into the central part of the image by up to 5 times by turning the focus ring. The Magnification Display lets you magnify the image on the LCD up to 7 times at the touch of a button. And if you use the control dial, you can boost magnification up to 10 times for more precise manual focusing.
C R E AT I V I T Y Defying conventional wisdom in terms of size, shape and design, the E-P1 offers unique potential for creative expression. Six Art Filters offer you artistic freedom, and Multi Aspect Ratio shooting widens the boundaries of image expression even more. Multimedia innovations such as HDMovie mode, incamera slide show and Linear PCM audiogive you more all on one device and upload to Facebook, Flickr, YouTube or Twitter. The 3" Live View LCD lets you shoot from unique camera angles, and allows you to preview settings and effects before you shoot. And thanks to the portability of the Micro Four Thirds System, all these capabilities are right at your fingertips, ensuring endless opportunities to capture it all, exactly the way you envision it.
The E-P1s variety of multimedia capabilities lets you create even more with a digital camera.

Using live view
The view of the subject you are taking a picture of on the LCD monitor is called live view. You can view the exposure or white balance effect and the subjects composition while you take a picture.

If there is a high-intensity light source within the screen, the image may be displayed darker but will be recorded normally. If the live view function is used over a long period, the temperature of the image pickup device rises causing images with high ISO sensitivity to appear noisy and unevenly colored. Either lower the ISO sensitivity or turn off the camera for some time.
The live view mechanism
During live view, the image on the LCD monitor is the same image received by the image pickup device (Live MOS sensor/imager) that is used for shooting. This way you can check the effects of exposure compensation or white balance on the LCD monitor. Moreover, you can also enlarge part of the subject to focus on it or display ruled lines to check that the composition is level.

The Olympus E-P1 marks an innovative era in digital imaging. The Micro Four Thirds camera upholds the legacy of the celebrated PEN family of cameras, with the photographic optics of an SLR and the size and simplicity of a point and shoot. Combining the still image quality of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) with the A/V quality of both a high definition camcorder and high-end audio recorder, the E-P1 is a virtual full-service imaging studio in one ultra-portable and stylishly retro body. With dozens of advanced features, the E-P1 makes documenting and sharing your everyday life easier and more creative than ever before. The E-P1 is the world's smallest 12.3-mexapixel interchangeable lens system camera, yet has the creative flexibility to give you a true professional experience with ease. A still photo, video and audio recorder in one, the E-P1 creates exceptional photos, inventive slide shows, and remarkable videos both for personal use or for posting on many of today's social networking websites. It delivers professional quality images without the bulk of a conventional DSLR, thanks to its slim body and advanced high-speed imager AF (Live View) technologies. The lens mount diameter has been reduced, enabling the use of smaller, lighter interchangeable lenses that perform at the same level as larger DSLR lenses. The camera fits easily in many pockets and purses. With 12.3 megapixels at its disposal, the E-P1 delivers image quality that makes the difference between ordinary and exceptional still and video imaging. A Live MOS image sensor is complemented by a next generation TruePic V image processor, resulting in excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity, fine image details in all highlight and shadow areas, and reduced noise.
