    I had this camera to review for Olympus. Here are my quick thoughts., January 29, 2011
    By 
    Kirk Tuck “Kirk Tuck” (Austin, Texas) –

    I asked Olympus if I could review this camera. I had written reviews for them before. To preface the review I will mention that I own several of the Olympus EP2 cameras and the EPL1 camera. While the EPL series cameras don’t come with the accessory finder, VF-2, I consider it the reason to buy this camera and this family of cameras. More on that in a second. I gave this camera five stars but you should be clear that all ratings are contextual. It’s not a better camera than a Nikon D3 or a Canon 1dsmk3 but it is a wonderful and very capable camera for $600 (with a lens). I consider it an $800 camera because I want to be able to use the 1.4 megapixel finder.

    Reasons not to buy one: 1. You shoot sports and need super fast autofocus and a very fast frame rate. 2. You rarely see daylight and want a camera that shoots noise free from 3200 ISO up. Nope, this one is not your camera.

    Reasons to buy one: 1. The files right out of the camera (as jpegs) are very nice. Rich and accurate color and nice balance of sharpness and contrast. 2. It’s a very stealthy package that flies under the radar, masquerading as a point and shoot but fully capable of great results. No one will guess that you’re a serious photographer. 3. With adapters there is a very wide range of lenses from other manufacturers that work well with the camera. If you want to try a Nikon or Leica lens for some street shooting this would be the camera to try it with.

    The big question I got over and over again in response to my review on my blog was whether this camera has better image quality that the EPL1. No. I find them identical. But the newer screen and newer controls are better.

    The HD video is limited to 7 minutes per take but the quality (720) is very good and the camera has full manual controls for every facet. You’ll need to buy an Olympus adapter if you want to use external microphones.

    Why do I like these cameras? Because they are quick to operate and very, very lightweight. I like to spend hours and hours walking thru city streets shooting and the cameras are light enough to make this an enjoyable thing. Not a job-like task.

    Now, on to the finder. I’m old fashioned. I just don’t like composing a scene at arm’s length. it’s a very compromised technique. Olympus makes a great electronic viewfinder that works with all the Pen cameras and also the new xz-1 compact camera. It’s a 1.4 megapixel finder. It’s very detailed and makes the camera a wonderful tool. I wouldn’t consider buying any of the Pens unless I budgeted for the finder as well.

    Bottom line? Great camera for the money. Just make sure you are buying it for the right reasons.

    A seriously good camera for its niche, February 12, 2011

    I am quite surprised at how good the images are that I’m getting, especially jpegs. I’m used to shooting raw because I get better files and can squeeze a bit more juicy goodness out of my photos that in-camera jpeg processing does. Surprisingly, this camera does a great job with jpegs in good light situations. That’s the important idea to keep in mind, good light. Kirk Tuck gives this camera a fine review, but realize that he’s a lighting pro, who has written several (good) books on the subject.

    IMO this camera is targeted toward two markets. For those moving up from a point and shoot, it’s wonderful. It’s familiar and less intimidating than an SLR. It can create better images than even the best point and shoots. The price is reasonable. It’s attractive and it’s a lot lighter than an SLR. Those people wouldn’t consider shooting in bad light without a flash. They wouldn’t consider deliberate long exposures to smooth motion effects. Those last two areas are not the camera’s strengths as Brad R. points out. From the things he’s asking the camera to do and not getting satisfaction he is a more knowledgeable photographer and demands more than the main target market for this camera. If you want low light capability or low ISO speed then this isn’t the best camera around, though it isn’t that bad, either.

    The other market is more experienced photographers looking for a light and compact second or third camera. They have cameras for low light or fast action shooting. But there are reasons for not carrying around a big, heavy, professional looking camera but still wanting quality image files. That’s my reason. My aging back hurts lugging around a fully sealed and rugged SLR. I’ve also found that I’ve been questioned about photos when in many tourist places: No pros allowed. Pros need to pay a fee. I don’t want a reporter taking my picture. Guess what? The EP-2 doesn’t get that kind of response. It looks like a tourist camera and tourists aren’t as intimidating as professional looking photographers, pro or not. Stick a big camera with vertical grip in a room and people tense up. Hold your camera a foot in front of your face and few people care. I love that about this camera. I guess you can tell that I like street photography with it.

    How much do I like it? A lot. It’s tolerably light, fits in a smallish fanny pack. handles great, takes great photos in good light, has well though out controls, and works fine with flash systems. Will I be shooting at night with this for available light? No. Is it a great camera for portability? Absolutely. It’s light. Its lenses are lighter than any larger sensor camera’s. I can take excellent quality images when I work with rather than against the camera. All in all I very pleased.

    The other nice thing about this camera is that it will take accessories and a remote shutter release. You can, and probably should add the attachable viewfinder. It will also take external microphones, which helps with much higher audio when recording video. That sounds strange, but it’s true. As a video camera, it’s pretty equivalent to current entry level SLRs.
