Olympus E-PL2 announcement clippings

The lightweight, compact E-PL2 is a landmark in user-friendly and beautiful camera design. With a series of intelligent enhancements, it sets another new benchmark for rival system cameras to live up to and even improves on the legendary usability of the multiple award-winning Olympus PEN E-PL1. Like its predecessor, the E-PL2 comes with the excellent integrated Live Guide that teaches beginners step-by-step how to capture great shots – and this user-friendly feature is now available in HD Movie mode, too.

The new Live Wheel on the back makes it easier to navigate menus and pick out the right feature or mode, while the larger 3” LCD with 460,000 dot resolution is ideal for framing and reviewing shots. Another worry-free feature is the new SDXC card format that provides the flexibility of a ‘future-proof' medium with huge storage potential – for high-capacity image files like High Definition movies.
