Design and Functioning

Touted as the world's smallest 12.3 mexapixel interchangeable lens system camera, the Olympus E P1 is a new kind of digital camera that promises to offer DSLR image quality in an ultra-compact format. Its In-body Image Stabilization system compensates for up to four shutter speed steps in the still shooting modes with any of its interchangeable lenses: Mode 1 for general shooting, Mode 2 for creative high-speed horizontal capture, and Mode 3 for high-speed vertical capture. A Multiple Exposure function enables the user to be creative in the landscape or portrait formats, or even a combination of the two. The camera's Shadow Adjustment Technology corrects for extreme light variations with high-tech efficiency. This can also be used in post-editing. This camera weights about 335gs and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
