Olympus E-P2 Compact System Camera (14-42mm lens & VF-2 electronic viewfinder) Black
About this deal
Family moments are precious and sometimes you want to capture that time spent with loved ones or friends in better quality than your phone can manage.
If you switch the camera on with the lens in this retracted configuration a message is displayed on the screen and you simply rotate the barrel past the locking catch into the normal use range. If you don’t want to permanently disfigure your JPEGs, it’s also possible to apply any of the Art Filters to the E-PL2’s RAW files using the supplied Olympus Master software.We've been shooting Google's two newest smartphones on two continents: from the parks of Madrid to the mountains of Washington state and the streets of Seattle. With vacant lugs for attaching the shoulder strap the only other adornments to be found at the camera's side, the base features a combined compartment housing optional SD or SDHC card plus lithium ion battery, good for up to a perfectly acceptable 300 shots using Live View, along with centrally positioned screw thread for attaching a tripod. Rather than replacing the E-PL1, the new model sits above it in the Olympus Micro Four Thirds PEN line up, beneath the E-P2.
It’s certainly vastly superior to the Panasonic LVF-1, although we can’t rule-out an improved model in the future (assuming the Lumix accessory port is up to the job).There are of course a number of other benefits to the E-P2 over the E-P1, but if you’re not bothered about the VF-2, you could save yourself a great deal by going for the older model without missing out on too much.
