For what it is it worked great.

  • Summary: This is a mirrorless digital 4/3 rds camera. It has an image sensor about 1/4 the size of 35mm film. A 25mm lens is a normal lens on this camera. The sensor is much bigger than most of the point and shoot digital cameras and offers much better image quality. The camera itself is about half the size and weight of a DSLR but is not a put in your pocket camera. It has no view finder. For the price I got it, it was a good deal. Makes a great travel camera.

  • Summary: Everything is great except the auto white balance under incandescent lighting. It's too warm even if you turn the keep warm setting off. Outdoors it's good.

Everything I expected

  • Summary: I love that adapters can be used so that old lenses can be used with it. I attached a Canon FD 50mm lens. The EPL3 or any micro four thirds camera will double the focal length.

Lots of bang for the buck!

  • Summary: Haven't had a lot of time to use it but so far so good. Big improvement in terms of auto focus, smoothness of zoom and burst mode over the EPL 1 which I still have. Compact and easy to hold for me; had seen reviews that it was a bit difficult to hold in one hand. Great quality images. The only downside is that it's minimum ISO is 200 and the bracketing function is somewhat limited. I would recommend this camera and it is an unbelievable value for the price.

Fully meets expectations

  • Summary: Already have an E-P1 and have added two Lumix lens to complement the original Zuiko 14-42. The E-PL3 was bought for traveling - the P1 is such a piece of art it's too precious to take on the road. The E-PL3 is lighter and smaller than the P1 and has a (strong) plastic body but it feels and functions very well. It feels expensive. Am pairing it with the original Zuiko 14-42 and not the one it came with.

  • Excerpt: I've been using this for a year now and hardly picked up my DSLR in that time.  In fact, I'm thinking of selling it to fund a VF2 viewfinder for this camera.  It takes all of my pentax primes and my lensbaby with a £5 adapter and the excellent kit zooms with the camera give me 28-300mm (35mm equiv) to a very high standard and virtually no weight.  It really is a "take anywhere" camera.

Not perfect, but very good!

  • Summary: Recently upgraded from an E-PL1 (Because I got good prices for both cameras). I must say I miss the looks and feel of the E-PL1, but the E-PL3 IS better! I got a leather half-case with a built in grip to overcome the the fact that there is no grip on the E-PL3. The new display is great (I always shoot in widescreen mode, as I view the pics on my TV), the camera is faster, the menus easier to read, and it has a 3D mode which I am having great fun with.

Best Camera on a Cheap Budget!

  • Summary: It took me a long time to decide on a camera i wanted to shoot high quality video and photos. i had my eye on the "PEN E-PL" camera line for about 3yrs and for me, i'd say this particular one is one of the best. - packing was neat and products were unharmed. - camera setup (obviously easy) - bulk of the camera feels like its worth something - photos are crystal clear and settings are easy to understand and navigate - videos, i was a bit disappointed but did not at all...
