Olympus E-P2 announcement clippings

Supplementing the hot shoe, a dedicated accessory port on the back of the camera extends flexibility. The first compatible device is included with the E-P2: an electronic viewfinder. Simply clip it on to enjoy bright, high-resolution depictions under all conditions and a 100% field of view. Tiltable by up to 90°, it not only is reminiscent of medium format camera viewfinders but also provides additional framing opportunities to promote shooting from unique perspectives. Of course, viewing picture information and adjustments as you go is a given. More accessory port attachments, such as an external microphone adapter for various microphone types, will also follow soon.
Capable of recording AVI format movies in 30fps 1280x720p HD resolution and boasting immaculate PCM sound quality, the PEN also lets users discover the magic of movie making. Seven minutes of footage can be recorded in a single shot. Furthermore, many still photography functions and options, including the application of Art Filters, depth of field, angle of view and AF tracking, remain operational in movie mode. Another new perk is the ability to film using the M-mode, good news for those with a creative touch. And because shooting is possible using any attached lens, a whole new world of framing potential emerges. Users can also capture high resolution still shots while filming at the touch of a button.
