OlympusOlympus PEN Mini system camera : Olympus launches world’s smallest and lightest system camera with interchangeable lenses. The Olympus PEN Mini is takes beautiful images and couldn’t be any easier to use. The Olympus PEN Mini is ideal for anyone who wants a fuss-free system camera that fits in as well as at a party as it fits in their pocket. Just like a point-and-shoot camera, the Olympus Mini comes in 6 different colours, but the PEN Mini offers real SLR quality. The new Olympus PEN Mini makes creative photography and video recording wonderfully easy. Olympus’ Live Guide gives beginners intuitive control of key parameters like aperture and depth of field, without them needing to know how they work.

Olympus developed the PEN system camera for people who get a kick out of great images, but find shooting with high-end cameras way too tough since most SLR cameras are heavy to carry and relatively difficult to use. The Olympus PEN Mini changes all that. The Olympus Mini generates the stunning picture quality of a large SLR camera, with none of the hassle or baggage. The new Olympus PEN Mini is smaller and lighter than any other system camera with interchangeable lenses, has a faster autofocus, plus it’s easy to use and it looks fantastic.

Like the rest of the Olympus PEN range, no matter how bad (or good) a photographer or filmmaker you are, the Olympus PEN Mini makes sure you get your settings just right, with none of the work. There are pop-up descriptions in the main menu in case you forget what all the different things mean. And with the quick-access Live Guide assistant, you can see on the LCD screen what needs adjusting to get the best shot available, and check how any changes will affect your picture when you push a dial on the back. Of course, the Live Guide helps you capture excellent movies as well as stills. The Olympus PEN Mini can record movies in the beautiful 1080i Full High Definition AVCHD format or 720p HD Motion JPEG video format.

If you like the visual effects graphic designers add to photographs in magazines, you’ll love the creative Art Filters on the Olympus PEN Mini. There’s Pop Art, Soft Focus, Grainy Film, Pinhole, Diorama and Dramatic Tone, which gives shots a dynamic atmosphere by boosting the contrast. All 6 Art filters can be applied on-camera to both Full HD movies and still pictures, at the touch of button, no PC software required.

The main kit includes a first-class Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm (28-84mm) 1:3.5-5.6 II R lens, but the Olympus Mini can also take more than 500 other lenses (some via an adapter). Thanks to the Olympus PEN Mini´s in-body Image Stabilisation, irrespective which lens you choose, blur-free shots are virtually guaranteed. The Olympus Mini’s FAST AF has a big role to play here too. It’s one the world’s fastest autofocus systems for cameras with interchangeable lenses.
