The Olympus E-P3 has a compact retro looking design with user-friendly features and boasts first class picture quality. It comes with a 12.3 Megapixel Live MOS sensor and has the fastest auto focus system of any small interchangeable lens system camera (June 2011). The EP-3 is mirrorless and is equipped with Truepic VI image engine, making the camera extremely slim, and produces outstanding picture quality in low light conditions. It has a tap-sensitive OLED display which consumes less power and allows an increased brightness and a higher contrast. In comparison to its predecessor Olympus EP-2, it has a higher ISO level up to 12800, is capable of recording high-resolution HD video (1920 x 1080), and is compatible with the expanding range of quality Micro FourThirds lenses. It also features ten in-camera Art filters that allow you to apply photographic effects to your pictures.
