Olympus Introduces the PEN E-P5: Flagship Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera
May 10, 2013 -- Olympus Imaging Corporation
is pleased to announce the introduction of the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5
mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, the flagship of the PEN Series
conforming to the Micro Four Thirds System standard. It is scheduled to
go on sale in the end of June 2013.
The OLYMPUS PEN series that debuted in October 1959 took the
world by storm as a pioneer in its day for bringing cameras to a mass
audience thanks to the original concepts it packed into one place such
as cutting the size in half to reduce weight and offering a beautiful
design. Known as the camera that could be carried easily anywhere like a
pen, the series was a big hit with 17 million units sold.
Revived a half-century later in July 2009 as a digital single lens
reflex camera that retained the concept behind its film version
predecessors, the series has won great praise since the introduction of
the first digital version-the OLYMPUS PEN E-P1-for its exacting design,
excellent portability, and the rich powers of expression and superb
image quality it offers. The cameras have been warmly received by those
who are particular about their lifestyles.
We have been working to satisfy the desires arising from the
increasingly diverse attitudes to how photography fits into people's
lives. In 2010, we added the OLYMPUS PEN Lite series to our lineup for
those customers who enjoy being more active in their photography. We
followed that in 2011 with the OLYMPUS PEN mini series, which as the
smallest PEN of them all brought new levels of casualness to
photography. At the same time, we have also been making steady advances
with our original digital camera lineup. As a pioneer in the area of
clearly setting apart cameras for expressing yourself from the
conventional "big, heavy, and difficult" type of single lens reflex
cameras, its digital version of the OLYMPUS PEN series has always
offered the pleasures of finding new approaches to photography and
In this, the series' fifth year, we are introducing the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5, a flagship model with maximum quality.
For its appearance, we have used a design that at every turn maintains
the PEN DNA of always providing new value while taking it forward to a
new generation. Exacting down to the smallest detail of the materials
and textures used, the design is one that delivers a "portable premium
Furthermore, the performance is such that no photo opportunity will get
away from with the advanced 5-Axis Image Stabilization that is a step up
from OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5, the high-speed response FAST AF, and the 1/8000
sec. of high-speed shutter -a world's first(*1) for a
mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. The camera's built-in Wi-Fi
function have vastly improved the series' capacity to work together with
smartphones when it comes to sending images, setting up sharing, and
wireless shooting. It brings mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera even
farther into your life and makes them easier and more convenient to
In terms of operability, the new 2x2 Dial Control helps when it comes to
both ease of use and customization. The functions of the two dials can
be easily changed using the Fn (function) lever, allowing your
photographic intentions can be instantly reflected in the snaps you take
thus broadening your scope of expression.
The lens kit includes our newest Electronic Viewfinder, the VF-4. The
VF-4 makes it easier to take even more elaborate shots; the user can
engage in high-resolution finder photography at high-power
magnifications that are on par with those of a full-size single-lens
The OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 is the flagship of the OLYMPUS PEN series. It has a
functional beauty that makes you happy to hold it, to take photos with
it, and to get the most out of it.
Olympus will continue to enhance our line of mirrorless
interchangeable-lens cameras and system equipment in our quest to create
and grow new markets.
Main Feature Details
1. Sophisticated PEN design that enshrines a "portable premium quality" experience
1) Advanced design for a new generation
The OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 carries on the essence of the design found
in all OLYMPUS PEN cameras and advances its appearance to a new level,
as is appropriate for a flagship product that brings the series itself
up to a higher step. The shape of the top deck as viewed from above
retains that of the OLYMPUS PEN E-P3 to give it the sense of being a
piece with the tilting LCD, while the design of the OLYMPUS PEN E-P1 is
retained for the silhouette view of the front. The front of the body
itself incorporates the leather essence of the OLYMPUS PEN F-which on
its debut was the world's first half-frame single-lens reflex camera-and
adds to it a modern metal treatment brings out the texture of the
metals and finishes it off with a modern exterior. The character line
that creates an overall impression of the camera retains the design of
the OLYMPUS PEN F and has the OLYMPUS PEN logo engraved upon it. That
logo is the crown of the OLYMPUS PEN brand, symbolizing as it does that
this is the flagship model for which advances have been made that are
only appropriate for the brand has provided new value as an innovation
on cameras from the age of film.
2) Exacting attention to materials, form, texture, and color
While adhering to the modern flavor expected of the OLYMPUS PEN
series, we were exacting when it came to the superiority of the texture
of the metal parts used for the top desk, front control dial, rear
control dial, mode dial, shutter release button, lens-release button,
and the arrow pad cover, increasing the degree of overall perfection.
Also, the color of the dials and the treatment method change depending
on the color of the body; various elements shine with silver or black
from dial to dial on the black body, and we aimed to get optimal texture
in each and every place for each color variation. The body is finished
so that none of the screws can be seen on the sides, front, or top of
3) Form and operability with a concern for ease of use
To permit the user to easily take photos even though the body is
small, we tried out a variety of patterns to confirm not only the
height of the grip and position of the dials but even the places where
the strap attaches, and achieved the optimal sizes and positions. Levers
and buttons are positioned in a clearly understandable way around the
arrow pad, with consideration given to being able to operate them more
intuitively. The sides are also shaped so the user can get grip them
readily and the tilting LCD can be smoothly pulled out even when a
tripod is being used. We have reassessed operability in all respects in
our pursuit of ease of use.
2. First mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera to offer 1/8000 sec. high-speed shutter*1
The 1/8000 sec. high-speed shutter found to date only on certain
cameras is now available for the first time with a mirrorless
interchangeable-lens camera. It is perfect for photographing subjects
that are moving quickly, and what's more also the large aperture lens
can be used at maximum aperture even during bright daytime shooting. The
newly added low sensitivity ISO LOW mode (equivalent to 100), used in
combination with the 1/8000 sec. shutter speed, also makes it possible
to draw out defocusing effects to the maximum, allowing for even more
varied photographic expressions.
3. Built-in Wi-Fi®*2 function enables easy sharing of images and wireless shooting
1) Easy and convenient image transfer functions
A built-in Wi-Fi function is new to the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5. You
can easily connect the camera to your smartphone by just tapping the
Wi-Fi icon. Using the Olympus Image Share (OI.Share) smartphone
application, you can easily send the photos you have taken to your
smartphone and view them easily. By selecting images to share on the
camera and adding them to a list, you can quickly send only those images
you have chosen to your smartphone. Photos marked for sharing can be
viewed when making a "One-time Connection," which is convenient for when
you want to share photos directly. Up to four devices can be connected
simultaneously, allowing to enjoy sharing the photos you take on the
spot with family and friends.
2) Wireless Touch AF Shutter remote control permits operating the camera from your smartphone
Using the remote control features of OI.Share, you can check the
camera's Live View screen while taking photos by remote. By tapping on
the Live View screen shown on your smartphone, you can set the AF point
just like you would when operating the camera and release the shutter*4.
You can also set the timer from your smartphone, making it optimal for
taking group photos. Since you can release the shutter when cued by a
voice recorded on your smartphone so everyone can easily recognize when
the shutter is going to be released, you can catch everyone with their
best smiling faces.
3) Location Information Appending function allows GPS log data to be added to photos recording with the camera
Geotags (location information) can be easily added on the camera
to the photos you take with it by simply sending the high-precision GPS
log data recorded by OI.Share to your camera.
4) Advanced Image Manipulation
Advanced Image Manipulation features include the 12 kinds of Art
Filters that the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 supports. You can also make sharing
photos even more fun by using for those shots taken using the camera's
PHOTO STORY mode such features as "PHOTO STORY+" for adding a rich
variety of stamps and "Signature" for adding a handwritten or original
5) Easy Wi-Fi connection setup to link the camera to a smartphone
Use the OI.Share's private connection to smoothly complete even
the most bothersome initial Wi-Fi setup by just reading the QR code
displayed on the camera's display with your smartphone.
4. 2x2 Dial Control for ease of use and options for customization
The 2x2 ("two-by-two") Dial Control is a new system for
controlling four commonly used photographic functions-aperture/shutter
speed, exposure compensation, ISO setting, and white balance-directly by
dial. By default, exposure compensation is assigned to the front dial
and aperture/shutter speed is assigned to the rear dial. By switching
the Fn (function) lever, ISO setting can be adjusted by the front dial,
and white balance by the rear dial. In addition to controlling 2x2 Dial
Control operations, the Fn lever can also be used to switch Movie button
functions (movie functions and Fn button function) and the focus modes*5. The easy operability makes it possible to intuitively get what you want into a photo with these customized functions.
5. Full line of accessories that make carrying the camera a pleasure and using it fun (sold separately*3)
We have put together a line of separately sold accessories
to make taking photos with the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 that much more
enjoyable. For details, please refer to the related products page that
||Shooting mode will switch to iAUTO.
||Focus mode can be changed by selecting as desired between C-AF and S-AF.
1. 5-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism that's a further improved from the OLYMPUS OM-D
The in-body 5-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism that corrects the
various kinds of shaking that can happen whether you are shooting still
photos or recording movies is effective for all kinds of lenses, from
Micro Four Thirds lenses to old ones. This image stabilization system
that is more powerful than anything that can be provided by in-lens
image stabilization systems has been made compact enough to fit in the
small body of the OLYMPUS PEN.
1) Newly added IS-AUTO
The IS-AUTO mode that is new to the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 automatically
detects the camera's movements, provides optimal control of the
correction direction for panning regardless of direction-up, down, or at
an angle-and corrects only the orthogonal direction of the pan.
2) Correction checking on the Live View screen
This feature makes it possible to check the image stabilization effects
on the Live View screen that had been difficult with in-body image
stabilization systems. The user can press the shutter button halfway to
check the image stabilization effects on the display and decide on the
composition for taking photos. The image remains on the display for two
seconds after the shutter button is released, making it possible to
stabilize the autofocus point and set framing.
3) Multi-motion IS
The Multi-motion IS used in combination with the 5-Axis Image
Stabilization mechanism produces excellent correction performance even
during movie recording. Even the gradual but significant blurring that
occurs while walking or due to breathing that had been difficult to
correct using conventional correction mechanisms is handled effectively
by the Multi-motion IS when using the movie blur-correction mode*6.
2. FAST AF and a Short Release Time Lag mode that make quick responses possible
Thanks to increases in the speeds of both the image sensor and
arithmetic processing, the FAST AF system that on the OLYMPUS OM-D
E-M5-which already was the world's fastest*7-has gotten even
faster. In addition to the extremely high-speed FAST AF, the OLYMPUS PEN
E-P5 also comes with a new short release time lag mode. With a time lag
of only 0.044 seconds*8, instant photo opportunities will not get away from you even if you are photographing a subject moving at high speed.
3. Super Spot AF and Focus Peaking make it easier to focus
1) Super Spot AF
Further advances have been made to the magnification autofocus that is
useful for when you want to be more precise in positioning the focus in a
small area such as when shooting macro photos. The newly added Super
Spot AF helps you to accurately bring into focus even extremely small
subjects, as it allows you to select an area even smaller than the AF
point for phase-difference autofocus and set a pinpoint autofocus on its
2) Small AF Target
You can set your focus even more precisely by using the Small AF Target,
which reduces the size of the Spot AF target, even for a 35-point full
area that permits setting the entire Live View screen as your AF point.
3) Focus Peaking
The camera has the Focus Peaking function*9 that helps
bringing shots into focus manually such as when taking photos using an
old lens. The contours of a focus set close at hand are emphasized in
white or black. This function used in conjunction with in-body image
stabilization will dramatically improve the usability of manual focus
4. High-speed sequential shooting at 9 fps
Capture even subjects moving at high speeds with certainty using the sequential shooting feature to shoot as fast as 9 fps*10.
High-speed sequential shooting as fast as 5 fps can be accomplished
when using the Tracking AF (C-AF+Tr), which works in conjunction with
the autofocus to follow your subject.
5. New forms of photographic expression: Art Filter and PHOTO STORY
The world of photographic expression has been greatly expanded with Art
Filters for creatively coloring your photos and the PHOTO STORY for
creating the story of the scene through multiple photos. These are
unique Olympus features for presenting everyday casual moments in varied
and individual ways.
1) Olympus' Art Filters for expanding the world of photographic expression
Twelve kinds of Art Filters are offered for stirring the sparks of
imagination. A broad range of 398 different variations can be put
together between seven Art Effects*11 and Frame Effects, and
your powers of expression are further expanded. If you can't make up
your mind about choosing a filter, you can use the Art Filter Bracketing
function to generate multiple pictures with Art Filters with a single
shot and then view them as a slideshow. Between the fun of seeing
ordinary scenes change as though you're looking at them through a
kaleidoscope and the unexpected effects of filters on them, this feature
will lead to making new discoveries in ordinary scenes. Art Filter
Bracketing can be applied to recorded RAW format data by in-camera RAW
2) Snap a single scene from multiple viewpoints with PHOTO STORY
By collecting photos, you can begin to tell a story of your everyday
moments-a PHOTO STORY. By merely tapping the Live View screen to take
your photos, you can enjoy a new kind of photography experiences and of
photographic expression by snapping off a given moment from a variety of
Two thematic modes are available: "Standard," which offers a rich
variety of patterns, effects, aspect ratios, and division numbers, and
"Fun Frame," which makes refined and fun photos possible based around
three stylish variations. The PHOTO STOTY feature can help you to turn
both everyday scenes and memorable moments into something colorful and
6. Interval Shooting and Time Lapse Movies
1) Interval Shooting
The camera features a new interval shooting function where the time
interval (1 second to 24 hours) and number of shots (1 to 99) can be
set. With a very simple operation, users can shoot a series of pictures
showing the growth of a plant, the drifting of clouds, moving crowds or a
butterfly emerging from chrysalis form.
2) Time Lapse Movies
Users can easily convert a series of pictures taken using interval shooting into a time-lapse movie*12,
in a camera, like those often seen in movies or documentary films. Art
Filters can also be used to produce even more creative time-lapse
7. Movie Teleconverter and Art Fade to expand the scope of moving image expression
The Teleconverter feature allows the user to select a part of a movie
during movie recording by tapping it on the touchscreen panel and switch
back and forth between the magnified movies and the wide movies without
deterioration. Using it brings more fun to movie recording, allowing
the user to capture the atmosphere at school plays, sporting events, and
the like while zooming in for close ups of children's faces matched to a
given scene. Also, by tapping on the touchscreen during movie recording
and then selecting one of the Art Filters*13, the user can create more artistic movies with the selected filter in which the image gradually changes.
8. Superb image quality inherited from the OLYMPUS OM-D
The camera incorporates three advanced technologies that help it to produce the highest image quality of any mirrorless system.
1) High-performance M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lens, a product of traditional optics technology
To take high-quality photos, you need a lens with superior optical
performance. The camera's M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lens-created with the lens
design traditions and manufacturing techniques of that noted optical
equipment manufacturer-demonstrate their superb optical characteristics
in creating superior image quality.
2) New 16M Live MOS Image Sensor for expanding low-sensitivity options and adding higher speeds
Speed options have been expanded to range from ISO25600 as the maximum
sensitivity to ISO LOW (equivalent to 100) on the low end. Together with
the 1/8000 sec. high-speed shutter, this feature further expands the
scope of photographic expression by allowing, for example, for
defocusing effects to be produced on bright days. The capacity to reduce
noise considerably across the high-sensitivity domain will preserve
details even for dark places shot at night. The rich dynamic range also
makes for smooth gradation expressions of scenes where the contrast is
great, allowing the user to beautifully depict light and shadow that
previously could not be captured.
3) TruePic VI image processing engine to fully bring out the capabilities of the lens and sensor
The Fine Detail Processing suppresses the generation of false colors and
moiré to produce clear images with a high resolution quality. The
camera's Real Color Technology has made it possible to reproduce even
more faithfully such colors as emerald green and yellow that are
otherwise difficult to reproduce. The TruePic VI image processing engine
technology exclusive to Olympus will fully bring out the capabilities
of high image quality lenses and sensors.
9. Advanced Live Bulb
If you use the advanced Live Bulb mode, you can look on the monitor to
determine the optimal exposure even for photographing bulb-dependent
subjects like fireworks or stars where you previously had to rely solely
on experience and intuition. Furthermore, when taking photos in the
Live Bulb mode the camera automatically reduces the monitor's brightness
to prevent glare. We also made it easier to use by making it possible
to display a histogram and the elapsed time of an exposure.
10. i-AUTO automatically selects from among 42 different shooting modes*14
i-AUTO is an intelligent photography mode through which the camera
selects from among 42 different photography modes the one matched to the
subject to automatically produce the optimal photo. It automatically
picks from among such complex photography settings as "Portrait +
Backlighting & Vivid Colors" or "Spotlight" and takes the photo. The
OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 detects the subject's movements before taking a photo
and instantaneously adjusts the ISO and shutter speed, reducing also any
blurring of the subject.
11. 1.04 million dot, 3-inch Tilt-type Touch Panel LCD*15
The OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 is equipped with a 1.04 million dot high-definition
tilt-type touch panel LCD. The tilt can be adjusted to face upwards at
an 80-degree angle and downwards at a 50-degree angle; this provides a
great deal of freedom in the photos the user can take, opting for the
high-angle shots used at weddings or sporting events or the low-angle
shots suited to photographing children or pets. The highly responsive
capacitative touch panel is equipped with a fingerprint resistant
coating, easily allowing for taking photographs by tapping the screen.
Using a gapless structure that has eliminated air layers, we created a
monitor that suppresses reflected light internally and controls drops in
contrast at high viewing angles.
12. High-performance built-in flash
We improved the flash synchronization speeds of the internal GN7 (ISO100) and the GN10 (ISO200) flashes by 1/320 of a second*16.
That made it easier to take backlit shots and other synchro photo
during the daytime. It also has a commander function, so users can also
easily take shots with sophisticating lighting using a wireless flash.
Users can also make detailed manual flash settings*17.
||During movie recording, the angle of field will become somewhat narrower when image stabilization has been activated.
||As of February 2012, when the product was announced.
||When pressing the shutter halfway with image stabilization

+M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm F3.5-5.6IIR
The VF-4 is a large, easy-to-see electronic viewfinder with a
finder magnification of 1.48 (0.74 equivalent for 35mm film camera) that
is on par with a full-size device and a 2.36 million dot
high-definition LCD with a 100% field of view. Owing to the viewfinder
optics design that is to be expected of a manufacturer of optics, the
VF-4 provides the high resolution and natural color reproduction down to
corners of widest and largest fields of vision*18. The eye sensor*19
allows for switching automatically from the rear LCD display to the
viewfinder display just by looking through the viewfinder. The eye
sensor is turned off automatically when the rear LCD panel is tilted or
the playback menu is active, further improving ease of use. The VF-4 has
an image display time lag of approx. 0.032 seconds and is also equipped
with a high-speed display mode, allowing the user to engage in
stress-free viewfinder shooting. The ability to frame photos freely has
also been improved with a lock mechanism for controlling viewing angles
and preventing dropouts, as well as a tilting mechanism that can be used
when appropriate based on the situation in which photos are being
taken. The VF-4 can be used with all OLYMPUS PEN models.*20
2. Genuine leather accessories to accentuate the high-grade camera body
A series of high-end accessories in limited quantities that bring out
the high-grade quality of the OLYMPUS PEN E-P5 camera is available.
These accessories are the Premium Leather Camera Bag, the Premium
Leather Strap, and the Premium Leather Body Jacket. All of three items
use the same leather; use them together as a set to bring out even
further the high-end appeal of the camera. They use genuine leather made
from carefully selected raw materials tanned by a major Japanese tanner
and then dyed and finished. The result has the robustness that a bag
for storing a camera demands and yet is still environmentally sound. The
finish takes advantage of the crimps in the leather itself to bring out
its softness and textures. The color variations are all centered on
brown, which lets you experience the sense of a premium product.

to accommodate what is being carried. The fasteners can be opened on
both sides, making the bag easy to carry over either the right or the
left shoulder, and there are side pockets on both sides into which lens
caps can be stored when taking photos. The shoulder strap is sewn at an
angle for optimally fitting to the body, and its length is also
adjustable. It can be used easily with all body types. There is one
pocket on the exterior front of the bag (closed by a fastener), one on
each exterior side (hidden magnets), and three inside pockets (one with a
fastener). There is room also for storing spare batteries, a
