Beautifully designed and engineered with all the very latest technology, the Olympus E-PL3 might be small in size but it is certainly big on features. It promises all the razor-sharpness, background blur and vivid colours of a professional SLR camera - despite being a fraction of the size.
For people looking to express themselves with state-of-the-art technology in an easy-to-use package, the compact and cute PEN Lite (E-PL3) is ideal. Like the top-of-the-range E-P3, the Lite is packed with some of the very best imaging innovations around. For example, FAST AF, the world’s fastest autofocus system for interchangeable cameras. There’s also in-body Image Stabilisation and combinable, one-touch Art Filters for adding creative flair to Full HD movies and stills.
Whether you’re a serious photographer or a snap-happy amateur, a 3-inch, tiltable display makes capturing stand-out images in awkward situations as easy as taking a regular shot. The tiltable LCD is just one of the user-friendly features that puts the PEN Lite streets ahead of any other camera of comparable size. The fact that ‘comparable size’ means compact speaks volumes about the Olympus E-PL3.
For a system camera with interchangeable lenses that delivers SLR quality, it’s remarkably small and chic – with a premium, brushed aluminium finish. Stunning pictures from a cool camera that’s as easy to use as a point-and-shoot? Absolutely. That’s what the Lite’s all about.
