In preparation for the launch of the new Olympus PEN cameras, I got to test the PEN E-P3. What I found was that this new PEN is much more than a new model in the PEN series. Rather, it’s a new generation of PEN camera that, to me, marks the maturity of the PEN system and the micro 4:3 platform.
To put it through the paces, I went with John Shafer of PhotographyReview.com to shoot a short biographical video of a professional climber.
For this video, I shot stills and video exclusively with the E-P3 and a variety of lenses. Most of the footage was shot between ISO 400 and ISO 1250—I’m quite impressed with the E-P3’s noise characteristics in this ISO range.
I look forward to getting to know this next generation of the PEN and taking it wherever my work and travels take me.
