    Denim love: Olympus launches special edition of their latest PEN camera model in blue

    London, 01.06.2018 – To quote the British Elle Magazine in March, “denim is a fabric that suits everyone”. To celebrate the ongoing love affair with this perennial material, Olympus is introducing a special blue edition of their recently launched PEN E-PL9 camera.

    This special edition of the compact and lightweight PEN E-PL9 not only takes great pictures and movies but is also an easy and stylish addition to any denim outfit.

    Already a firm favorite with the blogging community, the Olympus PEN series combines performance, superb build quality, and discrete take-anywhere size with a visual style that makes it as much part of an outfit as any key accessory. The new special edition blue version joins the existing white, black and brown models launched in March.

    We sent lifestyle blogger and photographer Debs Stubbington of @bangonstyle to Miami with fashion photographer Jay McLaughlin to bring the blue colour to life.

    “Miami’s sunny skies and blue waters were the perfect backdrop for the blue Olympus PEN. With all the incredible features and image quality of the E-PL9 but a new bold colour, the blue model has fast become my new favourite”

  • US PR, Finally

    CENTER VALLEY, Pa., April 5, 2018 -- Olympus introduces the Olympus PEN® E-PL9, a compact, lightweight interchangeable lens camera packed with features to enhance your photography with stunning image quality and sophisticated design. The PEN E-PL9 is the newest model in the award-winning PEN lineup and combines Olympus' latest touchscreen controls with an array of interchangeable lens options to go beyond smartphone photography, perfect for those looking to capture and share their lifestyle in attention-grabbing detail with friends and followers.

    The Olympus PEN E-PL9's sophisticated design is bolstered by aluminum accents, metal dials, and leather grain that perfectly complements each color option to match your personal style -- Pearl White, Onyx Black, and Honey Brown. The 180-degree flip-touch LCD monitor simplifies selfie stills and videos with an easy-to-use interface that automatically switches the camera to Selfie Mode when the monitor is flipped downward to its front-facing position.

    In-body image stabilization delivers sharp images and smooth 4K video even in low light environments or when using a telephoto lens. The latest Olympus TruePicTM VIII Image Processor, the same processor included on the Olympus flagship OM-D™ E-M1 Mark II, improves image quality and responsiveness. Built-in Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi™ allow you to easily connect your PEN E-PL9 to your smartphone to wirelessly transfer images and upload to social channels.

    With the PEN E-PL9's Auto Mode, the camera instantly detects a scene and chooses the best settings. Scene Modes let you choose from preset scenarios like People, Motion, Indoors, Nightscapes, Scenery, or Close-ups for easy setting customization. Advanced Photo Modes are readily available using the touch LCD monitor and facilitate high-end photo techniques such as nighttime Live Composite and multi-exposure shooting, so anyone can capture stunning images without worrying about difficult settings.

    U.S. Pricing and Availability

    The Olympus PEN E-PL9 will be available in Pearl White, Onyx Black, and Honey Brown beginning on April 5, 2018 for a street price of $599.99 USD / $699.99 CAD for the camera body and $699.99 USD / $899.99 CAD for the one lens kit. The one lens kit includes the PEN E-PL9 camera body, M.Zuiko 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ lens, custom camera bag, custom camera strap, 16GB memory card, Quick Tip Card, and Quick Start Guide.
