Olympus Pen E-P1 is World’s Smallest dSLR

Although Olympus is not that very popular in the Philippines, they still have a handful of loyalist here and there. It’s also made name for itself as having the world’s smallest and lightest dSLR — the Olympus Pen EP-1.

How small or light? Just 335 grams for the body and 35mm in thickness — that’s like half the thickness of the Canon 450D and 40% lighter.


Specs of Olympus Pen E-P1
12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor
3″ display screen
3fps sequential shooting
6400 ISO max
60 – 1/4000 sec. shutter speed
LiveView Autofocus
14-42mm M.Zuiko and 17mm F2.8 pancake (kit lenses)

Olympus uses the micro four-thirds technology with this model. Unlike other dSLR from Canon or Nikon, the Image Stabilizer of the Olympus E-P1 is built in the camera, not the lens. It also does 720p HD video recording (1280×720). One obvious drawback is that this camera does not have a built-in flash and no built-in viewfinder (sold separately).

Suggested price is $800 with the kit lens.

    Di to SLR. Interchangeable lens pero wala ung yung mirror at pentaprism kaya mas maliit.

    San pala makakbili nito dito sa Pinas? :D

  3. It really depends on her and her friends… In general, pizza is always good…usually you can please everyone…the vegetarian, the pepperoni-lover-only person, the cheese only, etc. Then maybe you can have some more "exotic" foods like go to Sam’s Club, and they have shrimp/chicken/steak wrapped in bacon that you can just cook on a skillet…those have been a hit…or deviled eggs…or quiche….think about what YOU would like.
