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