Olympus give PEN E-PL6 new edge with the expression kit

 

The all-metal, all style PEN E-PL6 has inherited more than good looks from big brothers in the OMD range, it's got the brains too. The latest streamline design from Olympus also comes equipped with Wi-Fi capable FlashAir SD card and a lust-worthy...

Olympus PEN E-PL6

 

The Olympus PEN E-PL6 is a solid camera at an amazing price, earning Editors' Choice honors in the budget mirrorless category.

Extremely affordable. Articulating touch-screen LCD. Support for add-on EVF. 8.1fps burst shooting. In-camera art filters. In-body image stabilization.

Omits Wi-Fi. Default JPG output is a little over-sharpened. No built-in flash.

Performance and Conclusions The E-PL6 starts and shoots in just 0.7-second, focuses in 0.1-second, and captures images at up to 8.1fps in burst mode. The shooting buffer is pretty decent too—it can grab 18 JPG, 16 Raw, or 15 Raw+JPG images before...

Olympus E-PL6 Review

 

Originally announced in Asia and Europe only but eventually making it over to the United States, the Olympus PEN E-PL6 is extremely closely related to the Olympus E-PL5, with only one notable hardware difference, and four changes in firmware. Just like...

In the US, the Olympus E-PL6 lists for about $300 bundled with the 14-42mm II R kit lens and FL-LM1 clip-on flash, which is a fantastic value. It comes in black, with white and silver finishes also available depending on the region.

An Oopps gone good

 

I originally bought a refurb laptop that hadn't properly refurbed. I was given a account credit for replacement, that was fair. Unfortunately there wasn't another laptop in my price range. I did spot an ad for this camera and the price looked good, and...

Small light weight, Great pictures with image stabilization, does video, can do high asa for low light.

Does not have WIFI. That can be remedy with a wifi SD card, then use microSD memory.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great camera! This is a insane deal for 299.99. This camera takes fantastic pictures with nice realistic color.

 

For many people who want to move up to a great high quality camera system, for the price , flexibility (excellent selection of lens, flashes, wifi memory cards and other aftermarket accessorizes) and image quality the e-pl6 will satisfy almost any need.

- It is compact and have a good balance while you are holding it in your hand; - It is full with features so a m4/3 beginner such I am will have to learn how to use everything. - 3 axis image stabilization is fantastic

- none so far.

IQ par excellent

 

This is a great on the go camera. It will even fit in a large pocket.

This is a steal even at regular price. The earlier model is selling for more. IBIS so you can use almost any lens ever made with an adapter.

None for what it is and price.
