Olympus PEN E-P7

Powerful photographic possibilities packed in a sophisticated lightweight design

Hamburg, June 9, 2021 – OM Digital Solutions GmbH is pleased to announce the Olympus PEN E-P7 Micro Four Thirds System camera. Conquering creative hearts with its photographic prowess and classic design from the Olympus PEN series of Yoshihisa Maitani. Equipped with an array of powerful photographic features such as Colour Profile Control, a 20 megapixel Live MOS sensor and in-body 5-axis image stabilisation. The PEN E-P7 allows photographers to capture memorable moments in their own style, creating high quality pictures and video that make the most of the performance of the M.Zuiko lenses.

Sophisticated design with great attention to detail

The E-P7 is built faithfully in the distinctive and sophisticated design of the Olympus PEN series. Details such as the aluminum front and rear dials are carefully crafted to achieve an exquisite, refined look. On its own, the body weighs 337 g*, and when combined with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ standard zoom lens, it only weighs 430 g. Making it lighter and easier than ever to bring a camera with you to capture the treasured life moments.

20 MP Live MOS sensor and in-body 5-axis image stabilisation

The combination of the 20 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, the high-speed TruePic VIII image processor and the M.Zuiko lens ensure quality beyond a smartphone. The PEN E-P7 is equipped with in-body 5-axis image stabilisation that delivers up to 4.5 steps** of compensation for blur-free, high-quality images every day. Advanced continuous Auto-focus and Face Priority/Eye Priority AF algorithm from the professional OM-D series models is also included for automatic detection and continuous focus on eyes and faces. Ensuring portraits are captured exactly as desired even when the subject is obstructed or in profile.

Profile Control at the tip of your finger

The dedicated Profile Control dial on the front of the E-P7 allows for instant switching between standard photo modes to Colour, Monochrome or filter effect profiles. Ideal for unique and creative image creation with 12 colour 10 step saturation control, Highlight & Shadow adjustment with Colour Profile Control, presets simulating analogue film-looks, colour filter effects and film grain effects in Monochrome Profile Control for stunning black & white images. Olympus Art Filters are also available, allowing your images to become small artworks virtually at the touch of a button. Simply move the slider on the monitor up or down to adjust the level of filter effects with the Fine Tune*** option.
