Best-in-class image quality


It might be small on size and weight, but the E-PL5 is certainly big when it comes to image quality - matching that of our leading OMD camera in fact. As a result, it delivers stills and movies with consistently high resolution, rich gradation, low noise and wide dynamic range. And with the incredibly fast autofocus and a touchscreen that puts focus + shoot literally at your fingertips, you never miss that killer shot again. It’s easy to shoot from high and low angles, or unusual vantage points as well thanks to the tiltable LCD display, which is absolutely ideal for framing self-portraits for instance. The E-PL5 has also been designed with the creativity of photographers in mind: There are 12 striking Art Filters and 6 Art Effects for you to choose from, allowing you to create one-touch masterpieces with an artistic wow factor. This camera also has the most advanced connectivity ever seen in a PEN: with a FlashAir card (trademark of Toshiba) you can now automatically transfer your photos and videos to other devices like your smartphone, wherever you are. Perfect for posting them on social networking sites without any fuss. And you even have the option of acquiring add-ons specially developed for this PENmodel, including an underwater case for diving deeper with your photos, and exchangeable grips to alter the look of your E-PL5 at will.
