Olympus PEN E-PL8 Body

Sorry, we have no items in stock.


The stylish Olympus PEN E-PL8 is light and compact enough to slip easily into a small bag. The flip-down LCD is ideal for selfies, giving you touch-screen access to key controls including shutter release/record, the exposure slider and creative Art Filters. Photos and movie clips can be edited on camera, and music or other effects added, then combined into one file for upload via Wi-Fi, a compatible smartphone and the free OI.Share App.

Wi-Fi connectivity
The PEN E-PL8 links quickly to your smartphone via Wi-Fi and the free OI.Share App so you can shoot full-body selfies remotely (controlling the camera on your phone) and keep a fashion log showing the outfits you wear every day. Of course, from your smartphone it’s a cinch to upload to social media.

Movie making made easy
The E-PL8 makes it easy, and fun to shoot and edit movies on-camera. You can record videos in short bursts, save them to ‘My Clips’, then stitch your favourite clips together to make a promo-style film with a soundtrack and Art Filter. For example, Old Film Effect randomly adds noise and scratches to create a retro look.

Touch Selfies
The E-PL8 elevates the selfie to an expressive art form, and makes it accessible to anyone. High-grade interchangeable lenses combine with high-end technologies to ensure maximum imaging power. Selfie Mode automatically activates when you flip down the reversible LCD, giving you one-touch access to key controls without worrying about blocking the shot with an errant finger. The result is beautifully lit, pin-sharp selfies, even when shooting against bright lights at night. Zoom lenses automatically move to wide-angle, and a choice of one-touch options appear on the LCD, including e-Portrait, Interval Shooting, Art Filters and movie special effects. PEN technology makes it possible to shoot spectacular, SLR-style shots with a defocused background or quirky fish-eye perspective that simply aren’t possible on even the best smartphones.
