Olympus E-PL3 / Lite announcement clippings

To make the most of excellent optics and to get the very best shots, camera settings need to be spot on. For an amateur, that's often a challenge that ends in frustration. Not with the Lite, and Live Guide is the key. Live Guide lets you easily master the settings that make all the difference –motion and background blur, colour intensity, lighting mood and brightness. In a typical shooting situation, the Live Guide helps blur out the background to make a shot more dramatic and show off the foreground to the best effect. To achieve this, you'd normally have to adjust the depth of field using the lens or menu, but with Live Guide you just press a dial to move a bar up and down until you see the shot you want on the LCD.
The Lite chooses the right settings automatically. Adjusting more permanent settings in the menu is simpler too, now that each menu choice has a popup window with a description of how it works. And for other menu settings that need adjusting more regularly, Olympus have fitted a row of fastaccess buttons – on the top of the camera right next to the shutter release.
