The new range of retro styled yet technically impressive digital cameras from Olympus are now available at UK computing and technology specialist dabs.com, including the E-P3 PEN SLR and the E-PM1 PEN Mini.
Well known for their innovative and stylish digital SLR cameras, as well as compact‘mini SLRs’, Olympus has been a popular photography brand for many amateur and professional photographers over the years. These latest additions to its line have piqued the interest of many technology blogs and review websites already.
The E-P3 is being marketed as the new standard for the well known PEN product line with a number of new and innovative features. However, it remains in-keeping with the quality and style that hark back to the early PEN models of the 1960s.
The standout feature on this 12.3 Megapixel digital SLR camera is the FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF, officially the fastest auto-focus sensor on the market. It means that photographers can catch precious moments or high-speed action shots with the E-P3 and not have to worry about slow auto-focus missing the most important pictures.
dabs.com is also going to be selling the slightly more compact E-PM1 micro four thirds camera. This smaller and stylish addition to the PEN family allows owners to catch professional SLR-like images but without the added complexity of a larger SLR, thanks to its newly redesigned interface which even allows previews of effects before the image is captured.
The E-P3 will be available at dabs.com either as body only or with one of a selection of compatible lenses. The E-PM1 will be available from early Autumn in a number of different vibrant colours.
