Differences between EPL-7 and E-PL6/5[edit]

  • Flip down "selfie" capacitative touchscreen
  • Touch screen UI is available in most of the UI, including focus point selection, focus magnification, tap to focus/capture etc'.
  • Screen resolution changed from 460K dots to 1037K dots /480*320 to 720*480
  • Newer AF system with 81 points instead of 35, practically giving it the same contrast detection system like in the more professional choices in the lineup, but lacks a phase-detection system.
  • Manual focusing is assisted by focus peaking, which enables easy focusing with any manual lens.
  • Comprehensive Wi-Fi feature, which enables communication with any Wi-Fi capable web device, and allows complete control over camera features when used with Android or iOS and a relevant app.
  • Geo-tagging pictures when captured through the O.I share app
