Olympus PEN E-PL3 : Camera Specs Features & Images

Olympus PEN E-PL3 Features

The 12-megapixel E-PL3 is available in silver, red, black, or white, and features a metal exterior with a flat front that eschews the handgrip that you’ll often find on cameras in this class. The rear of the camera features a rubber thumb grip, making it easy to hold with security and comfort. The black body ships with a matching lens, while the other colors include a lens finished in silver. The camera weighs in at 9.3 ounces and measures 2.5 by 4.3 by 1.5 inches (HWD), only slightly smaller than the 2.8-by-4.5-by-1.6-inch E-PL2.  The included 14-42mm M. Zuiko zoom lens adds about 3.9 ounces of weight and 2 inches of depth to the camera. The lens has a locking mechanism that allows you to collapse the barrel, making it a bit easier to fit into your camera bag. At 2.7 by 4.4 by 1.3 inches and 9.4 ounces, Panasonic’s most similar Micro Four Thirds camera, the Lumix DMC-GF2, is a similar size and weight to the E-PL3.
