Style That Goes Anywhere

You’re attending a wedding and want to look your best. Take along the camera that looks amazing too. The PEN E-PL8’s premium materials and finishes, from the leather grain to intricately-textured dials to the brushed aluminum, turn this beautiful camera into a high-end accessory. Every inch of the E-PL8 has been thoughtfully considered, like the modern rounded corners and the embossed Olympus PEN logo. Even after hours of capturing friends and family at a wedding reception, this lightweight, compact camera will feel comfortable in your hand.

Easy to Use. Even When Taking Selfies.

Traveling to new places is always an adventure. Using your camera shouldn’t be. That’s why the PEN E-PL8 has a unique flip monitor that’s also a touch screen. All of the primary functions are in one place – right at your fingertips. Of course, what’s an overnight trip, week-long vacation, or dream honeymoon without selfies in cool locations? The PEN E-PL8 automatically shifts into Selfie Mode when the monitor is flipped down. Sophisticated imaging technology ensures spectacular-looking selfies, even in low light or at night.

Pro Quality Photography for Everyone

Your toddler is growing up quickly and you want shots you’ll appreciate for years to come. The PEN E-PL8 helps you get photos even a professional will appreciate. In iAuto, the intelligent E-PL8 instantly chooses the best of 42 modes ensuring the perfect picture. Use Live Guide to adjust the look of an image before you take it – like blurring an image’s background. Plus, the E-PL8 automatically compensates for motion blur with its in-body 3-Axis Image Stabilization System – perfect for getting clear, crisp shots while chasing your kids down the soccer field.

Creatively Capture Your Life

Spending time with family and friends is always at the top of your to-do list. It’s a chance to shoot your best stills and video. With the E-PL8, it’s also a chance to get creative. Fourteen Art Filters - including the Partial Color filter - give your images and video a unique, personalized look. When you’re at a big family birthday, use the video Clips feature to edit together snippets of video and add music to easily create a fun video, all in camera. And when you’re out on the town with friends, use the nighttime Live Composite Mode to capture stunning cityscapes and stars you’ll always treasure.

Instantly Share Every Moment

When loved ones are around, everyone wants to get in the photo. It’s easy with the PEN E-PL8. Use the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi and fast QR code setup to link your smart device with the free Olympus Image Share app, then remotely control the camera, frame the shot, and trip the shutter. Spontaneous everyday moments of your kids, your family, and your life can be instantly and wirelessly uploaded and shared.
