Olympus to Release E-P1 Micro Four Thirds Camera in July

Olympus E-P1 Micro Four Thirds Camera

The Olympus E-P1 is now official, after a flurry of initial leaks and pre-launch rumors. The E-P1 is a new Micro Four Thirds camera the size of a point-and-shoot but with DSLR capabilities.

The company calls it the Pen, after an Olympus camera which was first launched in 1959, and describes it as “the world’s smallest 12.3-mexapixel interchangeable lens system camera.” It features TruePic V image processing, ISO 100-6400 sensitivity, a 3-inch LCD, 20 shooting modes (5 exposure, i-Auto, and 14 automatic scenes), an SDHC slot, and HDMI TV-out for playback of 720p (1280×720 pixel) recorded video at 30fps.

The Pen will retail for $800 with a 14-42mm (28-84mm in 35mm equivalent) lens when it becomes available next month.
