A couple of days ago, I brought you news of the new Olympus Pen E-PL1 digital camera. To say that this new era in digital photography excites me is an understatement. The exciting news for me (and yourselves) that I can now confirm that I will be bringing you a series of in-depth reviews of the E-PL1 Double Zoom Kit.
Mid-to-late March I will be kicking things off with an unboxing & product tour. This will be followed a series of videos looking at the various features of the E-PL1. I cannot wait to get my hands on this little beauty to take a look how the in-body image stabilisation performs, those superb art filters and of course the VF-2 Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) that you can add to the unit. The VF-2 is reported to be a wonder in itself with a superb clarity due to the high resolution. The double zoom kit comes supplied with both 14-42mm and 40-150mm zoom lenses, so I will be sure to bring you photo results from both. Following the initial series of videos, I will then move onto the video performance. The E-PL1 can capture 1280x720 video at 30 frames per second... again very impressive stuff. It even has a direct video button to make recording really quick to access and live view on the 2.7-inch screen to complete the experience. Far to much to report here, other than to say... watch this space and keep an eye on the Geekanoids Channel for full coverage.
