Lots of lens options.
Cons: Kit lens is ok.
Touchscreen is kind of gimmicky.
No built in flash or viewfinder
Other Thoughts: This is a really cool camera. I got it for my upcoming trip after toying around with the epl3. Nice step up. Very lightweight and small. Get a pancake lens to make it even smaller. I like that you can map out the buttons and setting to your liking. Having the ability to take multiple exposures and hdr in camera is also really cool. HDR is ok but i think my phone is does it a bit better, obviously i haven't wrapped my head around it yet.
The touch screen I semi useful. It's nice tap on the screen to accurately get a focus on your subject, but I can do without it. The paper manual is lame. Do a google search and download the full manual. While you are at it look up some of the other users' customizations. Really helps bring out the potential of the camera.
Other than that it's everything you would expect of a modern camera. Sharp pictures, fast focus, and considerably cheap considering the amount of technology in the camera.
This review is from: WINTEC FileMate Professional 32GB Class 10 Secure Digital SDHC Card - Retail
Pros: dirt cheap.
lots of storage.
build quality seems fine.
Cons: ok write speeds.
no case included
Other Thoughts: Great card. Used in a new compact camera and write speeds are okish. Takes a little while to write pictures that have long or double exposures. Other than that no complaints. great service as always by newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Olympus PEN E-PL3 Black 12.3MP Digital Camera with 14-42mm Lens
Pros: Offers a lot of scalability for an entry level camera. Very compact and would be more worthwhile than a point and shoot.
Cons: No lens hood included and no built in flash. Also no view finder for framing shots. Not a big deal. just something to be aware of.
Other Thoughts: This is a really great camera for the price. It is intended as a gift. I opened it to make sure it wasn't a dud and updated the firmware. So my use is limited to a few test shots, but the build and image quality were impressive enough for me to get myself one... and i wasn't in the market for a new camera.READ FULL REVIEW
