nice camera but not without flaws

  • Excerpt: I've been a fan of micro-four-thirds for a long time. I've owned the E-P1 since release day and have owned nearly every single micro-four-thirds camera that's been released thus far. While the E-PL1 produces stellar JPEGs, I would probably rank it among my least favorite of all micro-four-thirds cameras. For me, there's just way too much going wrong to make up for what's right. My biggest complaint is that the E-PL1 is a slow focuser.

Simply bad pictures

Stella Belenkaya, Amazon

  • Summary: I had to return the camera. In automatic mode the colors were obviously wrong with strong prevalence of red palette. I adjusted the colors, but after I turned off the camera, colors were reset to default. The simplicity of use and light weight are important, but only if pictures are good.

Not compelling for a "pointer and shooter" or for a DSLR user

Cay Horstmann, Amazon

  • Summary: I tried this camera, both with its default lens and a much smaller "pancake" lens. I really wanted to like it, as it seemed an ideal combination of good quality and portability. Yes, the quality is good, but the portability isn't. It's too large and too small. Compared to a point-and-shoot camera, the E-PL1 is HUGE. You can't put it in your pocket. You need to carry a case, which meant for me I wouldn't take it all that often.

Olympus is setting micro 4/3 backwards

K. Duro "Mr Gadget", Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this camera. I brought no bias into this purchase/evaluation, as a mater of fact. I anticipated this camera, but was only slightly concerned about the low res smaller LCD in the back. However, once I got it in the mail, I opened it and was struck by its over-all small size. Although I do have manly hands, they are not huge- and this camera was a little on the small side for me.

Great pics, shame of reliability

J.B., Amazon

  • Summary: I was really wanting to upgrade from using compact cameras for years to a SLR or the latest Micro Four Thirds cameras that have really taken off. The Olympus E-PL1 was not my first choice, but I was attracted by the price, being such great value for the package you got. My initial feeling of taking the camera out of the box for the first time was slight disappointment. It was very plasticky and build quality wasn't great.

HORRENDA

  • Summary: Tremendo error la compra de esta cámara. De noche te quedas sin hacer fotos ya que el objetivo "no ve absolutamente nada". No es capaz de enfocar así lo maten. Lenta por lo demás hasta el bostezo. Una verdadera porquería en muchos sentidos. Solo se salva en fotos diurnas sin prisas y por la duración de la batería.

Schlechte Produktpolitik

UlrichD "tomdietzel", Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Die Olympus Pen E-PL1 war vor zweieinhalb Jahren eine gute Systemkamera. Heute nicht mehr! Warum? Weil Olympus alles dafür tut, alte Kunden zum Kauf einer neuen Kamera von Olympus zu bewegen. Es gibt kein Zubehör mehr für das "alte Eisen". Und man hat sich offensichtlich auf dem Höhepunkt der Systemkamera-Welle noch ein bisschen Luft nach oben gelassen für die Zeit danach, indem man bestimmte Features weg ließ.

  • Excerpt: Сам далек от профессионального фото, поэтому отзыв пишу исключительно на основе субъективной оценки от использования. Перед выбором камеры проанализируйте, что в основном будете снимать и в каких условиях будет производиться съемка. Лично у меня большинство фото было сделано в кафе/клубах/вечеринках, т.е. в закрытых помещениях и в условиях слабого искуственного освещения.

Ich kann die Begeisterung nicht verstehen..

rafa28 "rafa28", Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Aufgrund der guten Bewertungen und des kleinen Preises für eine Systemkamera, habe ich diese zu Weihnachten verschenkt. Leider war schon am Weihnachtsabend beim Testen die Freude verfolgen, die das Tageslicht am nächsten Tag auch nicht ausgleichen konnte. negativ: - der Autofokus arbeitet nicht zuverlässig - Personen mit dunkler Kleidung bei schlechten Lichtverhältnissen werden erst gar nicht erkannt - Fehlerhafte(r) Punkt(e) in rot und blau immer an der gleichen Stelle...
