Olympus E-P2

The Olympus E-P2 is a micro system camera. It offers the flexibility of a Digital SLR in that you can fit different lenses, plus the portability of a compact digital camera. The E-P2 is available in black. Olympus has given this camera a metal finish.

Key features include 12 megapixels, a 3 inch LCD screen and the ability to shoot High Definition movies. You can record stereo sound to accompany your movie clips. The E-P2 also gives you access to a full set on manual exposure controls. As well as fully manual exposure you can also select aperture priority and shutter priority.

The E-P2 is compatible with a range of Olympus ZUIKO and OM lenses. This gives you plenty of choice in this area. Olympus have built image stabilisation into the E-P2. The advantage of this is that you do not need to pay a premium for lenses with image stabilisation built in.

Other features include an 11 point Auto Focus System. There is a RAW mode and a maximum ISO setting of ISO 6400. The E-P2 has a burst mode that can reel off up to 3 frames per second.

Accessories available for this camera include an optical viewfinder and a microphone adapter that lets you use external microphones.
