If you want to take better selfies, the E-PL8 is for you. Simply flip down the monitor to easily capture next-level selfies that cannot be taken with a smartphone. Also, with selfie movies you can communicate a richer message.
With the E-PL8 you never have to worry about selfies turning out poorly even in backlit or night scenes. The camera automatically detects the scene for shooting, so each and every shot results in a beautiful selfie.
With selfie movies, you can capture yourself speaking and moving. The new selfie mode for movies makes it easy to capture everything from your travels to everyday life.
This popular feature provides you with an array of visual effect options to make your selfies special. You can see the effects on the monitor before you release the shutter so you know exactly how your selfie will turn out.
This function lets you change the aspect ratio to suit your subject or theme. Changing the aspect ratio can give your selfie a different character.
Capture a variety of poses and select the best shot of the bunch with Interval Shooting. The count-down display makes it easier to see the shooting timing and easier to strike a pose. Set the number of seconds until the shot is captured, the shooting interval, and the number of shots, to your preference.
Since the E-PL8's touchscreen flips down rather than up, touch control is made much easier and the flash (when attached) does not obstruct your view of the screen. And the camera's powerful image stabilisation helps minimise any blurring caused by single-handed shooting.
When the touchscreen isflipped down, the camera automatically switches to Selfie Mode.
A wide-angle lens is best for capturing wider scenes in selfies. The separately available BCL-0980 Fisheye Body Cap Lens can capture wider scenes than the average smartphone. It is perfect for selfies that show where you are.
