Blunty’s back, and this time he’s continuing his series of videos on the new Olympus PEN E-P5 with performance tests of the new camera’s still photo and video capabilities.

(see video above)  No surprises here…  and that’s a good thing!  The PEN E-P5 lives up to the expectations you would have for a camera that’s loaded up with the top caliber sensor and image processor from Olympus’ former flagship OM-D E-M5.  The camera takes it’s place as Olympus’ new flagship by building on the absolutely stellar image quality that made the OM-D a worldwide sensation and adds enhanced low light performance and quicker autofocus while also building on the OM-D’s now legendary 5 point IBIS.  As a still photos shooter, the PEN E-P5 promises to be among the very best.


Although the E-P5 represents an upgrade in the video department over it’s predecessor, the PEN E-P3, this camera is not a tool for the serious videographer.  Being confined to 1080 30p framerates will make it a viable solution for family video shooters, but those looking to capture events or get into indie filmmaking will have to look elsewhere.

The Olympus PEN E-P5 comes in black, silver and white and sells for $999 USD (Body Only), or you can get it in black or silver for $1,449 USD with the 17mm f/1.8 lens (which is excellent) and VF-4 Viewfinder.
