It has 16 Megapixels, built-in stabilization that works with any lens you attach, Wifi, and a screen which folds down by 180 degrees for selfies or...

  • +

    Forward facing 3:2 touch-screen., Self shot modes., Wifi with smartphone remote control., 3-axis in-body stabilisation.

  • -

    Poor quality kit lens judging from two samples., Screen can’t flip forwards when tripod-mounted., Lack of touch buttons for changing selfie settings.

A likeable interchangeable-lens model, the Olympus PEN E-PL7's overall package makes an attractive alternative to an advanced compact and has quite a bit to offer as a first ILC.

  • +

    With its flexible display, great set of controls and generally streamlined design, the Olympus PEN E-PL7 hits quite a few high notes.

  • -

    It might be a little too complicated for newbies, and the grip could be bigger.

Much of the rest of the E-PL7 is familiar - it's based on a familiar sensor and the TruePic VII processor that offers very similar results to the chip used in the existing model. However, our early testing suggests the shutter shake isn't nearly as prominent as it had been on existing PEN models.

One mighty PEN.

This camera is a well-built, stylish and well-specced camera with very fast focusing and impressive image quality. It is perhaps styled more towards the female photographer, but the black or silver/black versions are likely to appeal to all.

With fun features such as a "selfie screen", pared down controls and a user-friendly interface, the Olympus PEN E-PL7 is primarily aimed at point-and-shoot users. However, experienced photographers can find plenty of depth to keep their interest, with enough manual control to feel serious, and with...

    Looks great, excellent touchscreen, improved handling, Wi-Fi works a treat, selfie screen if you fancy it

  • -

    Incremental improvements for the series, detail lacks at high-ISO settings, Auto ISO has limited use

I saw a pre-production model of this unit back in the summer. Now finally as winter grips us all the chance to review it arrives. For me a first, a removable lens camera marketed with the ability to take selfies high on its tick list.

There are lots of things to praise and very little to criticise about the E-PL7. It's not short of competition, though, and the price is currently double that of the Samsung NX3000 .

This latest offering from Olympus features the 16.1-million-pixel sensor that has proved popular in the OM-D E-M5, but as well as the sensor, the E-PL7 shares many of the features of the OM-D E-M10, minus a viewfinder and built-in flash.

  • +

    Good-quality, 16.1-million-pixel Live MOS sensor, Metal frame with stylish design, Responsive touchscreen

  • -

    Vulnerable and fiddly tilting screen, Small and tightly packed controls, No viewfinder

Amazing camera. The images are very clear and the raw files hold a ton of data. I miss this little camera. I kept it in my backpack at all times as it was small enough to even fit in my pocket (without the lens attached)

I can try and make my point with my review with countless words, using all kind of hurtful ideas like equivilancey and pixel pitch and what not - affordability? lens availability? combustibility? customizability? longativity? IDK. Many words, many pots to stir and watch how they boil and overflow...

It's not often you stumble across cameras like this. It's like a In several days of shooting (a few hundred frames) I haven't encountered an instance of "shutter shock." The improved shutter seems to have eliminated that particular issue. So I love this new capability that I have now.

27 July 2017

I am in LOVE with my camera , I am no professional photographer but this camera is the best ! It's really easy to use but has many features for capturing the perfect image , you need to buy the lens that goes with the camera! It has a feature where you can flip the screen round to take selfies !!

24 April 2017

Le Best for the price. got it for $350

18 April 2017

Every feature I want in a camera I want. flip screen, touch screen, command dial and mic jack(with adapter), except popup flash. Build is solid, you feel(in weight) how much camera they squeezed in this body. My last MFT/M43 camera was the E-PM1, and their autofocus is seriously faster since then.

30 March 2017

As a camera, it feels absolutely solid and well-built. It isn't light or plasticky at all. As soon as I held it in my hand, it felt like I was holding a pro-grade camera. I bought it primarily to do video shooting, and while not spectacular, it does the job well.

With astonishing generosity, the author admits us into the puzzling and frightening world of caring for a child with a severe peanut allergy. She gives us a vivid sense of the process by which she began to comprehend the full scope of the vulnerability and the means by which she ultimately became,...

    Lovely looking camera with great features!

    Zoom is not the best and camera is a little to heavy!

7 January 2017

It's very similar to the PL6 I have, which died on me. We were leaving on vacation in a week and no time to get it fixed, do I ordered this. Photos came out great. Video setting is different and I missed recording a really good video. Just double check your videos are working before you shoot one.
