E-PM2: The PEN Mini is now the PEN maximum thanks to incorporating technology
from Olympus’ flagship OM-D E-M5 Cool, compact PEN design Click here for a
larger image The beautifully conceived second generation PEN Mini E-PM2 camera
is not just small, easy to use and very affordable, it also packs a punch that
might not be expected of an entry-level device. This extra wallop comes
courtesy of the E-PM2 incorporating a new Live MOS sensor from the Micro Four
Thirds system flagship, the OM-D, along with another of that semi pro camera’s
key features in an ultra swift TruePic VI processor. What is surely expected
by now is this Olympus’ stand out styling, along with best-in-class digital
imagery. Along with a lovely all-metal finish and a stylish fixed grip,
further standout features that separate this interchangeable lens compact from
its competitors include body integral image stabilisation (IS), to ensure blur
free results free from camera shake whichever lens is attached, plus
creatively enhancing digital effects in the shape of 12 Art Filters. Factor in
a direct wireless link to social media for sharing images via smartphone and
you have a bang up to the minute device that at the same time doesn’t forget
its esteemed heritage. Inspired by the head turning original PEN series
designed by Yoshihisa Maitani, which sold over 17 million units worldwide, and
aimed at fans of fuss free photography, the second generation E-PM2 continues
the PEN tradition of classic looks yet bang up to the minute technological
innovations. It’s lightweight in design, yet heavyweight when it comes to
features. With FAST AF Click here for a larger image Cool, compact PEN design
with the added power of OM-D While the cool design of the E-PM2 delivers the
eye-catching finish that camera connoisseurs expect, it is all systems go in
terms of speed and delivery of images. Offering up a swift recovery time, the
PEN Mini E-PM2 also comes equipped with FAST AF, powered by the latest
generation TruePic VI image processor as found in the lightning quick OM-D
E-M5, thereby boosting auto focus performance to the level of that expected of
a semi professional camera. This has also prompted a boost in resolution to
16.1 megapixels in order to guarantee exceptional stills, as well as Full HD
movies, with great results even in low light, as light sensitivity now reaches
all the way to ISO25600. What’s more, FAST AF with 3D tracking has allowed for
improved moving object tracking, up to eight frames per second sequential
shooting (8fps), while a Live Bulb/Live Time feature can update the Live View
image on the rear panel monitor at pre-set intervals during long exposures.

Large, high resolution touch screen LCD monitor Speaking of rear panel
monitors, the E-PM2 features a 3-inch, high 460,000-dot resolution LCD screen
for clear visibility giving rise to freedom of creative expression. On the
E-PM2 there is also the convenience of selecting shooting mode options via the
touch screen rather than a mode dial. Full HD 1080 video with stereo sound The
PEN Mini E-PM2 features 1080 Full HD stereo movie recording in the MOV format,
with the options of watching footage back either on Full HD TV or your PC’s
monitor. Either way, the results will look great as, whether shooting video or
16.1 megapixel photos, the PEN Mini is precision engineered to deliver a
consistently high performance. Naturally the E-PM2 features HDMI output, so it
can be hooked up directly to that HDTV. Additionally, users can magnify a
subject up to 4x as they record with no loss of radiant 1080 pixels High
Definition resolution. Social networking made easier via FlashAir
compatibility Ever wanted to link your camera with your smartphone? Now you
can. Another major plus on the latest generation PEN Mini E-PM2 is FlashAir™
compatibility, and the free app that allows users to upload pictures to their
favourite social network via the familiar interface on their smartphone. There
are free iOS and Android software downloads for editing and sharing images via
social networks with the aid of your smartphone and/or computer. High

whatever your level of understanding, with knowledge and picture enhancing
Live Guide The philosophy behind the Olympus E-PM2 or PEN Mini remains that no
matter how inexperienced you are with manual photographic settings, here is a
camera that will allow you to get the settings just right. You may not
understand how to alter aperture or depth of field yet, but via built-in Live
Guide, the E-PM2 will allow you to view such adjustments in real time before
applying them to an image. Live Guide allows the real-time adjustment of the
likes of colour intensity, Lighting Mood, Brightness, Background Blur and
Motion Blur as well as allowing users to fulfill their ambitions as regards
video recording as well as stills. Live Guide is accessible in Full HD movie
mode alongside settings such as P/A/S/M. As a further aid, there are also pop-
up descriptions provided in the camera menus detailing what everything does,
should you forget. The camera is also eminently suitable for shooting in lower
light, due to not only built-in image stabilisation but also a top light
sensitivity setting of an impressive ISO25600. Creative magic guaranteed with
12 Art Filters Click here for a larger image Creative magic guaranteed with 12
Art Filters The amount of Art Filters provided by the PEN Mini E-PM2 has been
increased when compared to its predecessor. Eye catching effects can be
applied to movies as well as stills, and these can be tested in real time on
the LCD before being applied at the point the shot is captured. A further
innovation this time around is the ability in HD Movie Mode to blend from one
Art Filter effect to another, using the Art Fade function. The 12 new Art
Filters in HD movie and stills modes include the new Watercolour, which can be
combined with the likes of the new Monochrome setting. Art Filter Bracketing
is also offered, to enable different multiple effects to be applied to the
same subject with one squeeze of the shutter release button. HDR Bracketing
meanwhile allows for capturing one subject with five different exposures, so
you’ll never be stuck for creative choice. Extra buttons for added versatility
Click here for a larger image Extra buttons for added versatility The new PEN
Mini now scores over its predecessor by virtue of the fact that it now comes
with extra buttons that make it even easier to replay and delete images. With
the exception of a tilting monitor, it shares nearly all the features of the
PEN Lite – one step higher in the range – including a practical self-timer
that lets you take up to ten stills at customisable time intervals – a great
feature for shooting self-portraits together with friends. Double Axis Image
Stabilisation built-in for consistent blur-free results Another big advantage
over competing compact system cameras remains the PEN Mini’s built-in double
axis image stabilisation, which means that whatever lens is attached, you’re
protected from the possible blurring effects of camera shake. High quality
lens for superb images every time As the latest addition to the PEN camera
range, the E-PM2 or PEN Mini comes with the sculpted and near silent M.ZUIKO
DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II R lens, providing a versatile equivalent of
28-84mm in 35mm film terms. This lens, one of 26 directly compatible Micro
Four Thirds lenses available to E-PM2 users, has the advantage of not only
providing faster focusing, but also preventing the audible whirr of the lens’
mechanics that can otherwise ruin the audio track of your home movies. In
addition, 27 Four Thirds lenses and more than 500 other lenses can be used
with the PEN Mini with the aid of an adapter. Another advantage of the Olympus
system is that its lenses are lighter than rivals’, as they don’t require
built in image stabilisation or ‘IS’ of their own. What’s more the supplied
lens also features a swappable decoration ring, so you can match the lens to
the body colour of the PEN camera you’ve chosen. High capacity SDXC and Eye-Fi
card compatible The carry and shoot anywhere PEN Mini E-PM2 further takes the
worry out of photography and offers almost unlimited memory expansion
possibilities by providing compatibility with the new SDXC removable media
card format. This affords high storage capacities of up to a gargantuan 2TB to
ensure photographers don’t run out of space for those many thousands of photos
and videos at an inopportune moment – thereby making the E-PM2 as ‘future
proof’ as possible. Wireless transfer is also possible due to compatibility
with (optional) Eye-Fi media cards. Plenty of compatible accessories with
which to expand your creative PEN universe As this is a camera all about
choice, the Olympus PEN Mini E-PM2 is available in black, silver, white or
red. Optional extras include a super slim 15mm 1:8.0 Body Cap lens. When your
regular lens is detached the Body Cap allows photographers to shoot
spontaneously and benefit from a built-in barrier against dust. The Olympus
PEN Mini E-PM2 is available in the following configurations: E-PM2 Kit with
