Olympus E-5 announcement clippings

The E-5 is the new flagship model of the Olympus E-Series digital SLR camera lineup. The successor to the popular E-3, which came out in November 2007 and offered image quality designed to meet the demanding requirements of professionals and high-level amateurs, as well as the durability to withstand the most severe operating conditions, the E-5 inherits the highly reliable dust/splash-proof construction of the E-3 and the excellent imaging capability of ZUIKO DIGITAL. In addition, the new E-5 incorporates an array of impressive new features such as the multiple exposure, electronic level gauge and imager AF first introduced on the E-30 (released in December 2008), the advanced image processing engine popularized by the OLYMPUS PEN series, plus new Art Filter and HD movie functions.

As for image quality, the E-5 offers truly breathtaking performance thanks to its "TruePic V+" image processing engine with new Fine-Detail Processing technology. This enhances the sense of detail and resolution, maximizing the potential of the 12.3-megapixel High-Speed Live MOS Sensor to deliver pictures that are sharper and clearer than ever before. All of this works together to make the most of the imaging capability of ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses, which have already built an enviable reputation for outstanding performance.

To make it easy for users to take advantage of all that imaging power, the E-5 boasts the 3-inch VGA HyperCrystal LCD monitor with dual-axis swivelling system for more comfortable and more flexible Live View shooting of movies and still photographs.
