OLYMPUS INTRODUCES E-PL9
New model incorporates 4K video and upgraded image stabilisation
Olympus’s fashion-focused PEN line has gained a new member, the PEN E-PL9.
Aimed towards smartphone users looking to transition easily into interchangeablelens photography, the new micro four thirds model shares the same 16.1MP sensor resolution with the E-PL8, but mops up a number of new and updated features seen in other recent releases from Olympus.
These include 4K video recording and the same TruePic VIII processing engine as the flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II model, together with the more recent 121-point contrastdetect AF system to replace the 81-point system found on the E-PL8.
The camera’s image stabilisation system now operates over five axes instead of the previous three, while Wi-Fi is now joined by Low Energy Bluetooth technology.
The E-PL9 will be available in white, brown and black finishes, both as a bodyonly option and together with a M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 EZ Pancake lens, with a respective UK RRP of £580 and £650. It will be available towards the middle of March.
