Olympus presents to the world the world’s smallest and lightest dSLR — the Olympus Pen EP-1.

It is just 335 grams for the body and 35mm in thickness. If you need to compare that’s like half the thickness of the Canon 450D and 40% lighter.


See below the complete specs of Olympus Pen E-P1 :
– 12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor
– 3? display screen
– 3fps sequential shooting
– 6400 ISO max
– 60 – 1/4000 sec. shutter speed
– LiveView Autofocus
– 14-42mm M.Zuiko and 17mm F2.8 pancake (kit lenses)

Olympus is now using the micro four-thirds technology in this model. It does 720p HD video recording (1280×720). And unlike other dSLR from Canon or Nikon, the Image Stabilizer of the Olympus E-P1 is built in the camera, not the lens. One serious drawback is that this camera does not have a built-in flash and no built-in viewfinder (sold separately).

Estimated/suggested price is $800 with the kit lens.
