Olympus Introduces 16MP PEN Lite E-PL6 Micro Four Thirds Camera
While DSLRs are still quite the rage, it's the interchangeable
lens format that's seriously taking off. Olympus
' Micro Four Thirds division has been one of the more popular ones, and the company's introducing the new PEN Lite E-PL6 line this week in order to advance that further. Scheduled to go on sale in June, this camera offers a 16MP sensor, TruePic VI processing engine, faster focusing, and a touch panel. The camera also features a range of substantial new functions that make photography more convenient and expand the shooting possibilities of the camera. These include a Short Release Time Lag mode, ISO LOW setting, interval Shooting, Time lapse movies and a Level guide. With Red as a new color, in addition to White, Silver and Black, the body is available now in a total of for color variations.
Plenty of Art Filters are included for those who'd prefer to filter things up right on the camera, but unfortunately, Wi-Fi nor Android is included. Users can easily convert a series of pictures taken using interval shooting into a time lapse movie, and it features a two-axis (horizontal and vertical) digital level guide that allows users to accurately frame pictures even when there are no horizontal lines in the composition or when shooting a dark night scene. There's a 1080p movie mode as well, but Olympus isn't saying how much this guy will cost you.
