A Camera As Stunning As The Photos It Takes
It’s what happens when you bring together sophisticated style with advanced camera technology. The ultra-portable Olympus E-PL8 is the newest member of the award-winning PEN family of interchangeable lens cameras. It’s easy to use and packed with smart features that help anyone shoot high-quality images. Convenient extras like touch screen operation and a 180° tilt LCD monitor make the E-PL8 easy to use anywhere.
Distinctively Stylish and Compact
One word sums up the E-PL8’s design: premium. It features rich leather grain, a brushed aluminum finish, and textured knobs that give it a warm, luxurious feel. Rounded corners add to the sleek lines and help it to feel natural and comfortable when you hold it. But what’s really impressive is the compact design. It’s small, light and fits in any small bag. You’ll barely notice it’s there.
180˚ Flip Touch LCD Monitor
Taking a selfie has never been easier. Just use the 180° flip LCD monitor to compose and capture stunning self-portraits. Touch screen operation lets you conveniently control the camera’s functions. Simply touch the monitor at the focus point to instantly focus and trip the shutter. Spend less time learning how to use the camera and more time taking great shots.
Pro Quality Images
The E-PL8 shoots high quality, distinctive photos — no professional experience needed. The iAuto setting automatically previews the scene and selects one of 42 modes to snap the perfect shot. Use Live Guide to adjust the look of an image before you take it – like blurring or sharpening an image’s background. The camera’s ePortrait mode smoothes skin tone to create beautiful portraits.
The E-PL8 has 14 Art Filters that provide endless creative expression. They’re easy to use — just compose your shot, choose a filter and see what the image looks like before you even take it. You can even apply the filters to create unique videos. Use the nighttime Live Composite Mode to capture cityscapes and star trails any pro would envy.
Art Filters Shown: Grainy Film, Partial Color and Pop Art
Video with Clips
Imagine you’re at a big family party and you want to easily create videos throughout the day. The Clips feature lets you shoot 1, 2, 4 and 8-second videos and then arrange them your way — even add a music track in the background. The best part is that it all happens in-camera — no time-consuming post work — and the video files can be e-mailed or uploaded to social sites.
Advanced Technology, Beautiful Photos
The E-PL8 creates stunning images because of the advanced Olympus technology inside. The 16 megapixel Live MOS Sensor works with the TruePic VII Image Processor to deliver images with rich detail and vivid color. The in-body image stabilization system eliminates blurriness due to camera motion and takes sharp photos in low light.
Ready To Go Wi-Fi
Start sharing with family and friends thanks to the E-PL8’s built-in Wi-Fi. It easily syncs to your smartphone so you can use the free Olympus Image Share app for effortless uploading to social. You can also operate the camera, compose your shots and shoot remotely via your smart device.
Lenses For Anything
There’s a large selection of lenses available to use with the E-PL8 for any shooting situation. Compact M.Zuiko Micro Four Thirds lenses are built to exceedingly high standards and include options for specific shooting applications (like macro or portrait) and everyday use.
Accessories to Match
A stylish camera needs to be fitted with some trendy accessories. You can select from 4 colors of leather body jackets, straps and lens covers that complete the sophisticated look. Or choose the multi-purpose camera case (CS-50SF) designed to perfectly fit the E-PL8.

- Beautiful/sleek/vintage look
- Extremely lightweight --- I was able to fit comfortable into crossbody bags on my travels --- and still allows for me to switch out lenses.
- Wifi is super convenient
- Images are beautiful
- Image syncs to my phone can be inconsistent. Sometimes takes quite awhile to download --- and I still have quite a few pictures from one session that doesn't show up in my Olympus app. Can't tell if the problem is with the camera or the app.
- Construction quality not the best. The battery cover was extremely difficult to use. Often got stuck and I had to "squeeze" the sides of the camera to make sure it remained in place -----until finally --- the battery cover actually fell off!!! I'm not really sure how to fix. So annoying.
Overall, I'm still happy w the camera --- but not sure I would repurchase given the Cons.
MegaGear "Ever Ready" Leather Camera Case, Bag,..." for it and that is good protection.
