Olympus E-P5 PEN Mirrorless Camera w/ 17mm f/1.8 Lens and VF-4 Viewfinder


Designed with a modern twist to the original PEN F, fans of the award-winning Olympus PEN family of cameras now have the PEN E-P5. The flagship PEN body that delivers a portable, premium quality experience. The E-P5 is packed with the latest innovations Olympus technology has to offer including 1/8000s Shutter Speed, 5-Axis Image Stabilization, "F.A.S.T" AF Speed, Built-In Wi-Fi capability*, 2x2 dial control and more.

The Olympus PEN E-P5 carries on the essence of the design found in all Olympus PEN cameras and advances its appearance to a new level. Exacting attention is made to materials, form, texture and color. The body is finished to be seamless, none of the screws can be seen on the sides, front or top of the body. Form and operability of dials, levers and buttons are positioned for optimal ease-of-use and comfort.



    We improved the flash synchronization speeds of the internal GN7 (ISO100) and the GN14 (ISO200) flashes by 1/320 of a second**16 Synchronization speed will change based on the flash used. 1/250 when using an external flash.16

    That made it easier to take backlit shots and other synchro photo during the daytime. It also has a commander function, so users can also easily take shots with sophisticating lighting using a wireless flash. Users can also make detailed manual flash settings**17 FULL, 1/1.3, 1/1.6, 1/2, 1/2.5, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, 1/13, 1/16, 1/20, 1/25, 1/32, 1/40, 1/50, and 1/6417.


    (36 types during movie recording) i-AUTO is an intelligent photography mode through which the camera selects from among 42 different photography modes the one matched to the subject to automatically produce the optimal photo. It automatically picks from among such complex photography settings as "Portrait + Backlighting & Vivid Colors" or "Spotlight" and takes the photo. The OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 detects the subject's movements before taking a photo and instantaneously adjusts the ISO and shutter speed, reducing also any blurring of the subject.


    The E-P5 features an articulating tilt and touch LCD screen.


    The E-P5 incorporates a port for connecting accessories including flashes, PENPAL®, MAL-1 Macro Light, SEMA-1 Microphone adapter and viewfinders.


    The Multiple Exposure function enables you to be creative right in the camera. Multiple images can be captured and combined to create one unique image. The creative possibilities are endless!


    The E-P5 lets you select one of four Aspect Ratios that help frame your images to whatever proportions you'd like. Aspect ratios are available for still photo and HD movie capture, for everything from conventional enlargements to viewing on widescreen monitors.


    One-touch 4x digital converter for movie. You can zoom easily with the touch LCD.


    Improved Eye detection lets you choose from left or right eye priority modes to get the correct focus point quickly for perfect portraits every time. Up to 8 separate faces can be detected by the AF system.


    A built-In level gauge allows you to maintain correct composition in relation to horizon or architecutural elements on the Live Preview of the LCD.


    Like your shot but want a few revisions. Edit jpegs and now RAW files right in the camera. Fix Red-Eye, crop your image, change to black and white and more.


    You can use the Art Filter Bracketing function to generate multiple pictures with Art Filters with a single shot and then view them as a slideshow, including the High Dynamic Range post-processing feature.


    You no longer need to worry about the extreme contrast between dark and bright areas in your images. The E-P5’s Shadow Adjustment Technology corrects for extreme light variations with high-tech efficiency either before image capture or during post-capture edits.


    With the E-P5 you are in full control of all functions and imaging decisions—with split-second accuracy. Live Control, an advanced control panel system, allows you to see the image and the controls all at once. Whether using full manual control or all the automatic features, first-time users will feel like pros, and pros will create still images or videos that continue to push their own boundaries of creativity.


    The E-P5 provides two optional methods to help the user focus: a Magnified Focus (MF) Assist Function and Magnification Display. When using manual focus, the MF Assist feature aids with critical focus by allowing you to zoom in on part of the image by simply turning the focusing ring on the front of the lens. The Magnification Display enables you to selectively enlarge the image on the LCD at the touch of a button. This mode works for both autofocus and manual focus. Both MF Assist methods provide up to a 10x magnification of a single point of the image for critical focus; perfect for macro or still-life photography.


    The E-P5 also features an AF illuminator to make it simple to focus in low-light situations.


    Slideshows have never been easier or more fun to create. The E-P5's enhanced playback functions allow you to employ effective fade-in/fade-out techniques, control the movie/still mix and speed, and add captivating musical soundtracks.


    You can create more artistic movies with the selected Art Filter in which the image gradually changes when changing Art Filter settings.

    25600 ISO

    The E-P5 provides DSLR quality low light photos with an increased ISO sensitivity to 25,600.


    Rich dynamic range also makes for smooth gradation expressions of scenes where the contrast is great, allowing the user to beautifully depict light and shadow that previously could not be captured.


    Captures exceptional detail from shadow to highlight.
