The Art Filter feature – which was pioneered by Olympus way back to enhance images with creative pre-sets – is still a favorite of many PEN users to date. To get the most out of the 16 different Art Filter options, Olympus has integrated a new Fine Tune2 option to adjust the effect level of Art Filter effects while checking the results on the screen.
In Auto Mode, the camera identifies different photo-worthy situations and automatically selects the optimal shooting scene. The Advanced Photo Mode further supports the creative vision of Olympus PEN fans with pre-sets for different shooting situations that generally require advanced photography skills. The Multi Exposure setting allows anyone to easily shoot a multi- exposure photo while light trails of stars or car headlight trails may captured hassle-free in Live Composite mode. Silent mode, which mutes shutter and operation sounds, is now possible in P, A, S and M modes as well as AP mode.
The versatile lineup of compact, lightweight, high-performance M.Zuiko lenses additionally expands creative options: all-time favorites of many Olympus PEN users are bright, single-focal-length lenses such as the M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1.8 as well as macro lenses like the ED 30mm F3.5 Macro to achieve beautiful defocusing effects. On top of the currently more than 20 M.Zuiko lenses from Olympus it is possible to use hundreds of legacy lenses via various adapters.
