Olympus took most of what was great about the first two Pen cameras and dropped it into the E-PL1 digital camera.
From the 12-megapixel sensor to the high quality optics and excellent output quality, the Olympus E-PL1 loses almost nothing while shedding a couple hundred dollars from the price, and getting a grip in the bargain. The built-in flash, also new, allows the Olympus E-PL1 to remote-control Olympus strobes to boot, making this lower-priced digital camera more versatile than the more expensive E-P1 and E-P2 digital cameras. A new video button allows you to start movie recording without leaving the mode you're in, and the Olympus E-PL1 also allows Manual control over video exposure. It's a pretty complete package, one that can be expanded with the addition of different lenses and accessories to grow as your needs do. Click here for more on the Olympus E-PL1 digital camera.
