White Olympus E-P5
Silver E-P5

The Olympus PEN E-P5 is a micro four thirds camera and – despite its number – the fourth model in the PEN E-P range. It includes the same 16 MP sensor as the Olympus OM-D E-M5, an improved 5-axis in-body image stabilization, 9 frames per second continuous shooting, and a tilting rear touch screen. Compared to its predecessor E-P3 it has enhanced in-camera raw conversion, a HDR bracketing mode, and the ability to specify whether to use in-lens or in-body image stabilization with Panasonic lenses. Fastest shutter speed is 1/8000 sec, it has focus peaking to assist manual focus, and built in Wi-Fi for connection to smartphone or tablet. The controls have been changed compared to E-P3: instead of a thumb roller and rear dials it has two horizontal top-plate dials for exposure adjustments. The function of these can be changed by a lever on the back of the camera and are customizable. The E-P5 comes in three colour schemes; black, silver and white.[1]
