Three state-of-the-art technologies for superb image quality

Through a total balance of the three following state-of-the-art technologies, the PEN flagship model boasts superb image quality that only an Olympus camera can deliver: Lenses exclusively designed for digital photography, a 16.05 million dot LiveMOS sensor, and the TruePic VI image processor.

Max. ISO 25600 for shooting hand-held night scenes

The maximum ISO speed is ISO 25600. By drastically reducing noise, this high ISO speed helps in places where a flash cannot be used, maintaining details when shooting.

  • Previous model: ISO3200 F4 1/8sec
  • E-P5: ISO25600 F4 1/60sec

Wide dynamic range from low to high intensity light

Even in high contrast environments, light and shadow can be depicted more beautifully than ever before.

  • Previous model: ISO1600
  • E-P5: ISO1600

Image processor TruePic VI for high-quality images and high-speed response

Fine Detail Processing and Real Colour Technology on the TruePic VI image processor enable you to capture every detail of your subject. Also, by establishing exclusive image processing cores for recorded images and Live View images, the shooting tempo is improved.

Max. 1/8000 sec. high-speed mechanical shutter

The E-P5 is the first-ever compact system camera equipped with a max. 1/8000 sec. high-speed mechanical shutter. Not only is this feature perfect for shooting photos of quick-moving subjects, but the maximum aperture of a large-diameter lens can be used even in bright daylight conditions.


The E-P5 is now equipped with ISO LOW (equivalent to ISO 100). In combination with a high-speed 1/8000 sec. mechanical shutter, maximum background defocusing effects are possible.

  • ISO LOW (equivalent to ISO 100): 1/8000 sec shutter speed, F1.8
