  • Sample E-PL3 arrives today

    Mark Thackara, the UK boss for marketing digital cameras for Olympus in the UK, is dropping in later this afternoon with my E-PL3 (Pen Lite) production sample

    Naturally, always happy to answer any questions you may have!

    Re: Sample E-PL3 arrives today

    Hi Ian,

    Although I am ashamed to admit it I am a big fan of the Art Modes, although I know how to achieve some of the effects in photoshop I love the care free nature they encourage into my photography. Are there any new Art Modes and which of these are lost from the E-P3 as I am aware that the flagship model usually has more?

    Also if there are any new modes, are can you show me the results please?

    Many Thanks,

    Andy

      3. Pale&Light Colour
      4. Light Tone
      5. Grainy Film
      6. Pin Hole
      7. Diorama
      8. Cross Process

      3. Grainy Film
      4. Pin Hole
      5. Diorama

      The E-P3 has the most as you would expect. Don't forget that the new Pens from the E-P3 onwards can now combine the effects of some filters and the intensity of others can be adjusted. The processing of the filters is now faster as well thanks to the TruePic VI processor.

        Re: Sample E-PL3 arrives today

        Thanks for your answer there Ian, I'll have to get my hands on the E-PL3 and E-P3 to see if I can justify the extra funds. I've seen that Park Cameras are having an open day for the launch of the new PEN's I'll pop in to see them and have a play I am sure that will help to make my mind up.

        If I think of any other questions in the mean time I'll drop you a line...
