Product Description

The PEN E-PL8 has a refined design. This camera is almost like an accessory on its own. Its simple, sophisticated design is something you will never grow out of.

The separately available genuine leather body jacket, genuine leather lens jacket, and genuine leather strap not only protect the camera but add to your fashion ensemble. The body jacket can be left on even when shooting selfies.

With the E-PL8 you never have to worry about selfies turning out poorly even in backlit or night scenes. The camera automatically detects the scene for shooting, so each and every shot results in a beautiful selfie.

With selfie movies, you can capture yourself speaking and moving. The new selfie mode for movies makes it easy to capture everything from your travels to everyday life.

This popular feature provides you with an array of visual effect options to make your selfies special. You can see the effects on the monitor before you release the shutter so you know exactly how your selfie will turn out.

This feature combines multiple shots into a single photo. Shoot a selfie as one of the images for a unique and stylish collages.

This function lets you change the aspect ratio to suit your subject or theme. Changing the aspect ratio can give your selfie a different character.

Capture a variety of poses and select the best shot of the bunch with Interval Shooting. The count-down display makes it easier to see the shooting timing and easier to strike a pose. Set the number of seconds until the shot is captured, the shooting interval, and the number of shots, to your preference.

Since the E-PL8's touchscreen flips down rather than up, touch control is made much easier and the flash (when attached) does not obstruct your view of the screen. And the camera's powerful image stabilisation helps minimise any blurring caused by single-handed shooting.

Initial connection between the camera and smartphone requires just a simple scan of the QR displayed on the camera screen. Settings can be completed in just a few steps. Once a camera and smartphone have been paired, the connection will be automatic the second time onward.
