Features overview

E-PL2 has a 3-inch LCD display with 460,000 pixels, 720p HD movie capture, the next generation of V-TruePic image processor, and card slots SDXC SDHC-compatible, and four body colors: red, silver, white or black.

Using the E-PL2 with a Mac

If you shoot in JPEG and upload your iPhoto or Aperture, probably quite happy with the images you see on screen. If you switch to RAW, but you can not treat or examine the files in your favorite photo to Apple until Apple adds support for the model by updating Mac OS X Digital Camera RAW. Wait is not long, however, previous models of the pen 3 are all supported in Aperture, and I expect the same E-PL2.

When recording video, E-pl2 capture 1280 x 720 files at 30 frames per second (fps) in a. AVI (Motion JPEG OpenDML). Aperture and iPhoto support for this format, which makes the QuickTime player. But the AVI format has some standard constraints, including up to 2 GB limit recording HD movies to 7 minutes.

Fun accessories

Olympus has created a lot of their own accessories, including conversion lenses of three-angle fisheye, wide and macro. The company believes that it is cheaper for users to expand their choice of optical specialty Buyi Micro Four Thirds mount. If you decide to try the macro lens attachment, be sure to get the LMA-1 macro arm light. This is a pair of LEDs for close-up work that is fed by the accessory port to provide illumination. And finally, Correspondent powered Bluetooth accessory can transfer images directly from the olympus pen p2 to a variety of devices. More on this later.

It 's the same size as the olympus pen p1 is used in other cameras, but has four focal points instead of three. It is also rated at 7.2V/1150mAh that old batteries. I tested the BLS-1 E-PL2, and everything worked fine. So if you have the batteries already working in the new entity.
