Olympus’s Newest Mirrorless Camera Is Retro Inspired and Shoots 4K Video

Yes, it shoots better selfies than your iPhone.


The Olympus Pen E-PL9 mirrorless camera is a newer and better version of its predecessor, the E-PL8. It still has the same 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor and a touchscreen viewfinder that flips all the way below the camera so you can see yourself as you take a selfie, but the E-PL9 is now able to shoot smooth 4K video (30 fps) thanks to a new built-in stabilizer. It also has a built-in flash — the previous E-PL8 had a detachable FL-LM1 flash mod. If you’re looking for an affordable mirrorless camera with a retro vibe, that’s also a decent upgrade to your smartphone, this could be one to consider. Pricing and availability in the US should be released shortly.
