Hands on with the new Olympus E-P3

Techstination feature for Monday, August 29, 2011

Hands on with the new E-P3 from Olympus.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   When it comes to compact interchangeable lens cameras, there are lots of choices these days and they are growing in popularity.   Olympus and Pansonic use the micro four-thirds standard  and the new flagship from Olympus the E-P3 has some great new features.   A touch OLED screen, much faster focus with a dual core processor and improved low light performance.   Product manager Sally Smith Clemens…

The E-P3, our now top of the line flagship Pen camera, is really designed and targeted to the serious shooter, the street photographer.   We’re introducing along with it some fast prime lenses.  A 24 millimeter f2 and a 90 millimeter f1.8.”

There are lots of other features, including HD 1080i video capability.    You can find the E-P3, if you shop around, for under a thousand dollars.   You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
