The PEN E-PL9 features built-in Bluetooth® in addition to Wi-Fi to make it easier to connect to a smartphone and share images on social media. With in-body 3-axis Image Stabilization2 and the latest image processor TruePic VIII (from the flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II) reduces noise in various scenes producing clear images. Producing ultra-High definition 4K videos, the E-PL9 has outstanding image quality for both hand-held beautiful videos and photos.

The E-PL9 also has 16 Olympus original Art Filters for producing impressive image effects. The newly added Instant Film filter creates a modern yet nostalgic feel to images. Advanced photography techniques such as Live Composite and Multi-exposure shooting are included in AP (Advanced Photo) mode, allowing anyone to enjoy complex shooting techniques with minimal difficulty. By simply touching the SCN (Scene) mode, the camera allows you to select appropriate shooting themes according to the environment.
The Touch AF Shutter function makes selfies (self-portraits) easy for both still images and movies, simply by touching the screen on the flip down LCD monitor. When the monitor is flipped down, it automatically switches to a mirror display where e-Portrait, the shutter, video recording, playback, and the custom self-timer can be operated using touch operations on the LCD monitor. Interchangeable lenses deliver an option for expressive and high image quality, including capturing portraits with beautiful natural background blurs, and dynamic snapshots with an enhanced sense of perspective.
