Have to touch up every photo

Derrick S., Newegg
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I'm sure other cameras have the same issue, but the fact that I sent it back, and got no resolution... I'm not happy.
  • Pros: 12.3 MP Large Sensor. Not a DSLR, not a P&S. Light, Easy to carry. Nice iAuto. Anyone can take pretty nice photos.
  • Cons: Three hot pixels. I sent it back to Olympus just before my one year warranty due to two hot pixels. When I got it back in the "fixed" condition, it had a new one. Now it has three hot pixels! Not cool.

Simply bad pictures

Stella Belenkaya, Amazon
24 April 2010
  • 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
28 March 2010
  • 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.

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.

Great pics, shame of reliability

J.B., Amazon
6 August 2010
  • 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.

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.

Schlechte Produktpolitik

UlrichD, 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".

  • 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.
