Olympus PEN E-PL7

The PEN E-PL7 is the camera that camera designers all wish they had designed. And it’s perfect for selfies. Not just because the picture quality is so much better than on a smartphone, but also because you can flip the display down then turn it around to face you. Every PEN is compact and light enough to carry and hold at arm’s length, and easy to use even if you know nothing about cameras. Plus it has built-in WiFi for instant sharing on social media. And it’s gorgeous. Did we mention that? Holding a PEN up in the air for a selfie is a fashion statement in itself.

Here are the key highlights of the prize, Olympus PEN Standard zoom lens kit.

  • The white PEN E-PL7 Pancake Zoom Kit with an M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm EZ lens, attachable speedlight flash (FM-LM1), fashion strap, eyepiece, battery and charger.
  • The E-PL7 is adorably designed with a premium metal-with-leather look, slim casing and eye – catching grip.
  • Enjoy easy selfie shooting and posting anytime anywhere with the flip-down LCD display and built-in WiFi.
  • Use built-in WiFi for remote-control shooting from a smartphone (with free Olympus OI.Share software) and easy sharing on social media.
  • Get creative before you go on Instagram, with 14 Olympus Art Filters and 9 Art Effects.
  • Match your look with a wide range of beautiful (and useful) accessories designed especially for the fashion-conscious PEN owner.
