Touch Selfie

To make taking selfies easier and more fun, this model is equipped with a large, high-resolution flip-down touchscreen, a Selfie Mode, and VCM image stabiliser which compensates for camera shake which often occurs when holding the camera with a single hand.

Flip-down touchscreen perfect for selfies

Equipped with a large, high-resolution touch panel for intuitive focusing that flips down 180 degrees, the E-PL7 allows for easy touch shutter operation with no risk of your arm obstructing the lens. Since the monitor flips downward, a flash can be attached and used, creating beautiful selfies in any situation.

Image Stabilisation System

X: Pitch, Y: Yaw, Z: Roll

The E-PL7 is equipped with 3-axis VCM image stabilisation for stable shooting with any lens. This stabiliser powerfully compensates even for rolling blur that tends to occur when shooting selfies single-handedly.

Capture beautiful selfies against nightscapes

With the E-PL7's powerful image stabilisation and high-performance sensor with excellent sensitivity, you can even take beautiful night-time selfies, not possible with a smartphone.

Beautiful selfies even in backlit scenes

The E-PL7 produces evenly exposed selfies every time. In selfie mode the included flash is optimised to produce evenly exposed backgrounds and faces in the foreground, even in backlit situations.

When in Selfie Interval mode the camera auto-focuses for each frame ensuring in focus shots every time even when the composition changes. To aid capturing the perfect selfie a countdown display will indicate the number of seconds remaining on the self timer and, you can set the number of seconds between each shot and the total captured.
