Olympus E-P2 Packs in a lot more than Megapixels

e-P2Companies who spend research and development costs on things other than trying to pack insane amounts of pixels into their sensors often get their devices overlooked by uneducated consumers.  Olympus has invested considerable effort into development of these sorts of quality-improving features that deserves to be recognized.  These features mean more than the megapixel count.

Features like:

  • Electronic View Finder (EVF) which mounts on the camera’s hot-shoe
  • 1280P HD Video (1280 x 720 = 921600 pixels or 0.9 Megapixel)
  • Dust reduction system
  • Mechanical image stabilization built into the body
  • 70m Shutter Lag
  • Art filters which can be applied in real time to Video
  • “iEnhance” color processing that models the eye’s adaptation to color
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements in the lens to reduce chromatic abberation

The camera “only” has a 12.3 Megapixel sensor, but we guarantee it will perform dramatically better than all those 12 Megapixel camera phones (which you will expect after shelling out $1,100).
