Introduction

The olympus pen e pl7 14-42mm-kit is a mirrorless digital camera with interchangeable lens that is designed to suit the needs of general photographers who want more than a simple point-and-shoot camera, but who are also interested in a camera that is more compact than a regular DSLR.

Whether you want to take shots of landscapes, or you’d like to take a selfie, this camera can help you out with no issues at all.

What is the design ?

The olympus pen e pl7 14-42mm-kit has a retro-inspired design. The camera feels solid, but it manages to remain lightweight, even though most of its body is made out of metal. The camera can be easily operated using just one hand, and both the dial and the buttons have the right size. The grips are extremely discrete, and despite they are not protruding, they are ideal for your hands. The screen of the camera has a 3:2 ratio, making it more useful for still images. Moreover, the screen tilts up to 180 degrees, so taking a selfie is possible in a matter of seconds. There are several other movements available for the screen, and you can use each of them, according to your needs.

What is its performance ?

The olympus pen e pl7 14-42mm-kit has more than 20 preset scene modes, and six exposure modes. You can keep the shutter open for as long as 60 seconds, but you can also have it closed in 1/4000 sec. The ISO range goes from 200 to 25600, and it can be boosted to 100. The sensor has an effective 16MP size, and it follows the four thirds format.

What is the image quality ?

The olympus pen e pl7 14-42mm-kit can shoot photos at up to 4608 x 3456 pixels, and other resolutions are also available, such as 3200 x 2400 pixels. Seven white balances are available, so you can take the perfect shot each time, under various lighting conditions. You can also record Full HD videos at 30fps, and they are recorded using the H.264 format. The built-in microphone is a stereo one.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

If you are interested in a mirrorless camera that is shipped with a great lens, then the olympus pen e pl7 14-42mm-kit is the answer to your request. The price is extremely affordable and performance-wise, the camera won’t let you down.
