Olympus Imaging Australia has announced the release of the latest model in the PEN compact camera series, the PEN-F.
Olympus says the PEN-F is designed for reportage, documentary and travel photography. It uses a new 20-megapixel Live MOS sensor and has a built-in 5-Axis Image Stabilisation (IS) system that can achieve up to 5 EV steps of stability.
The interchangeable-lens camera has a shutter release lag of just 44ms and includes a new Colour Profile feature that takes colour or monochrome photos with the look of classic film types.
The PEN-F is the first Olympus PEN model with a built in viewfinder, using a 2.36M dot OLED.
The new PEN-F's classic design features milled-metal, click-detented dials and control switches featuring diamond-cut edges. A new 20-megapixel Live MOS sensor and the Truepic VII imaging engine gives the PEN-F the highest imaging resolution amongst Olympus compact system cameras.
Other features include a swivelling high resolution touchscreen LCD and detachable FL-LM3 Flash included; 4K Time Lapse movie; Focus bracketing mode changes the focus location while capturing multiple images during sequential shooting; High-speed sequential shooting: 10 fps with S-AF, 5 fps with C-AF, 20 fps in Silent mode.
