Olympus PEN-F 20MP Digital CameraOlympus
Rangefinder style cameras were all the rage in 1963. Now they’re back. The beautifully-crafted PEN-F is ideal for street shooters, as a second camera for studio pros, and for anyone who loves vintage design and photography. It features sleek lines, precision controls, and the ability to capture amazing street shots. Advanced sensor technology combined with in-body image stabilization ensures superior resolution and razor-sharp images, even while you or your camera is moving. And fully customizable in-camera color control shoots photos with old school film quality right before your eyes.
If you can imagine a shot, Olympus has the ideal lens to capture it. The PEN-F is at the center of an extensive line-up of M.Zuiko Premium digital lenses, including a 12mm, 17mm, 25mm, 45mm, 60mm Macro, and a 75mm. Like the camera itself, these lenses are fast, compact, and built to exceedingly high standards. There’s also a wide variety of M.Zuiko PRO, standard, and body cap lenses available to match any shooting situation.
AUTHENTIC LOOK. ULTIMATE CONTROL.
It’s stunning. PEN-F features all-metal construction with luxurious metal and leather-grained accents. A magnesium top cover with no visible screws. Even the back of the articulating monitor is finished with a premium textured grain. PEN-F’s compact size feels comfortable in your hand after hours of street shooting. Finely-crafted controls are positioned at your fingertips: an exposure compensation dial on top and two customizable dials to assign aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. They’re all operable with your right hand without taking your eye from the viewfinder. Plus, four custom modes on the mode dial let you save your favorite settings for instant access.
CREATE THE PHOTOS YOU ENVISION.
You love photography that’s distinctive and film-like. PEN-F’s Creative Dial creates the rich textures of film without all the post work. Just set, compose, and shoot using Live View. Spin the front-mounted dial to easily switch between four main functions: Monochrome Profile Control, Color Profile Control, Art Filters, and Color Creator. Use the Profile Control options to precisely set the saturation of twelve individual colors, curves, shading, and monochrome film grain effect. Create and save your own profiles. Or select one of the PEN-F’s presets, including Chrome Film Rich Color, Chrome Film Vivid Saturation, Classic Film Monochrome, and Classic Film Infrared.
POWER AND SPEED TO CAPTURE EVERY DETAIL.
PEN-F’s 20 MP Live MOS Image Sensor and TruePic™ VII Image Processor work together to deliver the superior resolution professional street photographers demand. If you’re shooting landscapes or architecture, the 50 MP High Res Shot Mode combines eight images in one second to create a single super-high resolution shot. PEN-F boasts a 1/8000 mechanical shutter with the shortest release time of any compact system camera*, giving you blazing 10 fps sequential shooting to capture the spontaneity of the street.
PERFECT POINT OF VIEW.
See the world in new perspective. PEN-F’s interactive electronic viewfinder allows you to maintain full control of the camera’s settings without taking your eye off your subject. Compose your shot in the bright 2.36 million-dot OLED viewfinder with 100% field of view. The 3.0” articulating monitor doubles as an AF Targeting Pad - touch the monitor with your thumb to set focus points while composing your shot. And use the Simulated Optical Viewfinder Mode to see your surroundings just as you would with the naked eye.
ULTIMATE IMAGE STABILIZATION.
Street photography usually means that you or your camera is moving. That’s not a good thing if you want super sharp images. Olympus’ world-class in-body 5-Axis Image Stabilization System compensates for any type of camera movement. You’ll always get crisp shots, even when light is scarce, or when the camera is susceptible to shake during telephoto shooting. PEN-F’s sophisticated image stabilization even works with older lenses that don’t have electrical contacts. Register up to ten profiles of non-data transmitting lenses in the camera for Exif inclusion. Build the system that’s right for you.
SHOOT AND SHARE LIKE A PRO.
PEN-F conquers all types of challenging shooting situations. Nighttime Live Composite Mode makes capturing dramatic images of brightly-lit city streets and star trails easy. You can even watch the composited images being assembled in Live View. Silent Mode quiets all camera noises - an ideal feature when you need to be discrete. Control the camera remotely from a smart device using PEN-F’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. And when you capture the perfect shot, the Olympus Image Share app lets you instantly upload images and video to share with friends and followers.
