Olympus E-PM1 DSLR belongs to the high-end ultra-compact PEN system cameras, having awfully spruce outlook with its minimal external controls, flaunting gay and freakish purple, sumptuous brown, modest pink, elegant silver, gorgeously orthodox dark, and modest white.
It weighs but 250gms. Which means it will not be a burden to you. Rather it will remain a wise, silent and extremely meticulous historian by your side wherever you are led by your aesthetic consciousness with the view to witness unusually striking real-life images you would not like to go unrecorded.
At the same time, it will avail you to remember when you come to Olympus E-PM1 DSLR that you have come to no other than Olympus, and show it due respect by leaving behind average image quality expectations. In other words, you need to be a high-end user or else it will make you feel stupid even to look at its menu system.
Taking a utilitarian view of it, E-PM1 DSLR is truly impressive with its functional approach to the task it is assigned. Its Auto-focus, in addition to the idea associated with it, has Imager AF Live View autofocus system that tracks and registers target continuously, and constantly adjusts focus and exposure on the subject in case you or the subject you are focussing on is in motion. And the Image Stabilizer will always be there to stabilize the images.
For particular shooting situations, it has two distinct Modes to offer. The Scene Mode automatically applies the best camera settings out of the 23 that it makes available. Manual movie mode gives YOU the choice of aperture and shutter control, and application of Art Filters when you are shooting. You know how you want your HD videos to be and so there always comes time when you yourself do your bit instead of leaving it to be done by the camera. One good thing is that you can always preview the end-result in all shooting modes.
Its unique iEnhance feature gets the exposure settings correct no matter what situation and under what light quality it finds its subjects in, rendering the images it captures surpass reality by employing color and contrast adjustments. Its 6 Art filters can be used then to process images and add special effects. It even allows you to mix still images and videos to create multimedia slideshows, and add soundtrack using any of the background music options it offers.
In the end, all that remains to be said is Come, See and Be Prepared to be Conquered by Olympus E-PM1 DSLR.
