Olympus PEN E-PL8 Mirrorless Camera w/ 14-42mm IIR Lens (Brown)

When you see the Olympus PEN E-PL8, you can’t resist the urge to pick it up and hold it. With its sleek contemporary design, it looks more like a beautiful accessory and less like a traditional camera. Premium materials and finishes add to the luxurious appearance and feel. The compact PEN E-PL8 fits into a handbag and is ready anytime you need spectacular photos or videos - you’ll be an instant hit on your social newsfeeds. The flip touchscreen monitor provides easy operation, and the powerful in-camera creativity tools let you express your individual style. It doesn't just take great pictures. It makes an impression.

Flip-Down Touchscreen

Since the E-PL8's touchscreen flips down rather than up, touch control is made much easier and the flash (when attached) does not obstruct your view of the screen. And the camera's powerful image stabilisation helps minimise any blurring caused by single-handed shooting.

Built-in Wi-Fi for Smartphone Sharing

Built-in Wi-Fi and the Olympus Image Share smartphone app can be used to easily import photos and movies from the camera to a smartphone. With this feature you can easily share DSLR quality photos with friends and family.

Smartphone Connection via QR Code

Initial connection between the camera and smartphone requires just a simple scan of the QR displayed on the camera screen. Settings can be completed in just a few steps. Once a camera and smartphone have been paired, the connection will be automatic the second time onward.

Fast Autofocus & High-Speed Shooting

FAST AF provides high-speed auto-focusing on your subject simply by touching the monitor in the area you want to focus on. And maximum 8.5 fps high-speed sequential shooting lets you shoot consecutive shots of a subject in motion.


Simply press the shutter button and iAUTO automatically selects the optimal Scene Mode setting for the scene you are shooting and releases the shutter. With iAuto, anyone can take beautiful photos.

Live Guide

Live Guide lets you adjust camera settings to achieve your desired shot without needing any extensive photography knowledge or experience. The novice-friendly language and intuitive controls let you easily adjust bokeh, brightness, colour, and expression of motion.


e-Portrait makes skin look smooth and beautiful, while other areas of the image are left as is.

Touch Selfie

If you want to take better selfies, the E-PL8 is for you. Simply flip down the monitor to easily capture next-level selfies that cannot be taken with a smartphone. Also, with selfie movies you can communicate a richer message.

Remote Selfie

The remote shooting function can be used to capture selfies even when away from the camera. Use your smartphone as a remote control to capture selfies and selfie movie in exactly the way you want.

Selfies at Night

With the E-PL8 you never have to worry about selfies turning out poorly even in backlit or night scenes. The camera automatically detects the scene for shooting, so each and every shot results in a beautiful selfie.

Aspect Ratio

This function lets you change the aspect ratio to suit your subject or theme. Changing the aspect ratio can give your selfie a different character.

Interval Shooting

Capture a variety of poses and select the best shot of the bunch with Interval Shooting. The count-down display makes it easier to see the shooting timing and easier to strike a pose. Set the number of seconds until the shot is captured, the shooting interval, and the number of shots, to your preference.
