" Offering the ability to shoot 12.3MP stills along with 1280 x 720p HD video, makes the E-5 a kickass platform "

Photographers seeking a powerful yet inexpensive solution to capturing high quality photos and hi-definition video clips have an intriguing option in the lightweight and feature packed Olympus E-5 DSLR.

Offering the ability to shoot 12.3MP stills along with 1280 x 720p HD video, makes the E-5 a kickass platform whose versatility enables new levels of creativity. Based on its E-System technology, which maximizes the award-winning performance of Zuiko Digital lenses, the Olympus E-5 achieves the highest image quality of any Olympus digital camera — providing “astonishing detail, blazing speed, and true-to-life color.” The E-5 does this by combining the Olympus TruePic V+ image processing engine and High-Speed Live MOS Sensor.

“Fine Detail Processing” technology delivers exceptional detail, while an advanced mechanical image stabilization system provides blur-free handheld shooting. A new 11-point Twin Cross AF system is one of the fastest and most accurate available.

According to Olympus, the E-5 is the company’s first professional camera to offer 720p HD video; recording at 30fps with superior quality stereo audio — easily captured using any microphone with a standard 3.5mm plug. A wireless flash controller allows for easy synchronization of multiple strobe units, while on-the-fly creativity unleashes via a variety of in-camera Art Filters and other effects, which are available in both still photo and HD video modes. Its weatherproof design allows the rugged E-5 to go anywhere the shoot takes you.

“When paired with Zuiko Digital lenses, the E-5 system is the most compact on the market,” states an Olympus spokesperson. “And its intuitive, ergonomic design, feels so natural, it’s almost invisible to the photographic process.”

“Whether composing still images or video, the E-5’s three-inch 920,000 dot dual axis swivel LCD with Live View covers all the viewing angles with a 100 percent accurate view,” the spokesperson added. “And its large optical viewfinder also provides a 100 percent accurate view, so you’ll never miss a shot.”

Compatible with more than 20+ Four Thirds lenses; offering flexible storage options including both CompactFlash and SDHC/SDXC card slots; RAW and JPEG still image formats; and an HDMI connector; the dustand splash-proof Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera may be the right solution for your shooting needs.
