  • Conclusion: Olympus PEN E-PL1 system camera review Olympus is making headway with the digital PEN, which is logical. It is a very smart concept and a very nice cross between a compact camera and an SLR camera. The design also makes it appealing to a lot of people.

Olympus E-PL1 dSLR review

5 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The E-PL1 may not be as pretty as its predecessors but it's lighter, easier for beginners to use and above all costs a whole lot less. With internal flash and in-body image stabilisation it's a worthy challenger to Panasonic's GF1 in terms of specification.

  • Conclusion: Gelukkig kun je uiteindelijk wel met RAW werken en dus genieten van de foto’s die de Olympus PEN PL1 kan maken. Vergeet vooral dan ook niet met de kunstfilters te werken, ze vormen een waardevolle aanvulling op de mogelijkheden. De E-PL1 is de derde PEN en een echte instapcamera.

  • Pros: profi képminőség, kis méret, beépített vaku.
  • Cons: átnézeti kereső hiánya, gyenge vaku.
