Product Highlights

    Manual Focus Assist

    The E–PL6 provides two optional methods to help the user focus: a Magnified Focus –MF– Assist Function and Magnification Display. When using manual focus, the MF Assist feature aids with critical focus by allowing you to zoom in on part of the image by simply turning the focusing ring on the front of the lens. The Magnification Display enables you to selectively enlarge the image on the LCD at the touch of a button. This mode works for both autofocus and manual focus. Both MF Assist methods provide up to a 10x magnification of a single point of the image for critical focus; perfect for macro or still–life photography.

Shoot images with stunning detail and vivid color thanks to a powerful tandem of a sizeable 16 MP Live MOS Sensor and our TruePic VI image processing engine. Technology like an AF Illuminator and an ISO with speeds that hit 25,600 capture crisp, clear shots in low light. Everything is fast on the PEN E-PL6 from the exceedingly responsive touch screen to 8 fps sequential shooting. Nourish your artistic side with Full HD Video 1080i and 12 Art Filters and Effects.

Unleash your creativity, apply new monochrome Art Filters Effects or edit RAW images right in the camera. The PEN E–PL6. All the professional features you need to take you to the next creative level in a compact and portable camera.

    Immediate Response, One–Touch Shutter & Control

    The E–PL6's Touchscreen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch even if the subject is not in the center. Touch Screen display makes it easy to choose AF points, capture a picture, change camera settings, release the shutter or navigate controls, simply by touching the screen.

    8FPS Sequential Shooting

    With the E–PL6 you can take up to eight photos a second, allowing you to easily capture that perfect shot, especially when your subject is moving.

    Fast AF: Touch Focus & Short Release Time Lag

    The F.A.S.T (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology( AF System is able to focus at an incredible speed and offers 35 separate focus areas that are spread over the image area. Four different AF area sizes can be selected – the smallest of which makes pin–point AF accuracy possible on even the smallest of macro subjects. Selectable 3x3 groups within the 35 areas are especially effective when you need to match the AF area pattern to your particular subject. And with the improved time lag of only 0.044 seconds on the E–PL6 – instant photo opportunities will not get way from you even if you are photographing a subject moving at high speeds.

    Simply Touch The Live View Screen

    A intuitive touch panel is used for the rear monitor and can be operated with only a few light and comfortable touches. On traditional cameras, adjusting the focal point was difficult however this panel makes it easy by letting you simply touch the screen, making shooting the way you want simple and effortless. The construction of the monitor reduces reflections, and along with the anti–fingerprint coating, makes it easier to view vivid images on the monitor even in bright outdoor conditions or dark indoor conditions.

    Professional Quality, 16MP Live Mos Sensor

    Featuring a 16 megapixel Line MOS sensor, the E–PL6 is optimized to maximize the performance of all mZuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements to the sensitivity and read–out speed of the existing sensor makes shooting and Full HD movie recording possible.

    TruePic VI Image Processor

    TruePic VI Image Processor, designed specifically for the Olympus PEN, features Real Color Technology for improved color reproduction (especially colors such as emerald green, yellow, and gold) and color gradation. The faster processor also allows for a shorter recovery time between shots.

    Proven Dust Reduction System

    Olympus' Dust Reduction System assures spot–free images, even if you change lenses. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it doesn't interfere with the picture imaging at any time.

    ISO Low For Further Expanded Shooting Scenes

    The E–PL6 is now equipped with ISO LOW mode (equivalent to ISO 100). In combination with a high–speed 1/4000 sec. shutter, a large–diameter lens can be used at maximum aperture even in bright daylight for background defocusing effects.

    In–Body Image Stabilization

    Say goodbye to blurry images. Olympus' in–body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide–angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light.

    Low Light Performance AF Illuminator

    The addition of this super luminosity LED beam alllows the camera to focus faster in low light up to almost 10 feet

    ISO 25,600

    Stunning low light photos are a click away with an increased ISO sensitivity to 25,600.

    Bundled Flash

    Attachable flash included. This camera provides the flexibility to attach a flash to your camera via the accessory port, or leave it at home for maximum portability.

    Creative Freedom

    Twelve in–camera Art Filters are enhanced by new filter variations, art effects and bracketing. Photographers can use Art Filters in all shooting modes as well as filming HD movies.

    Interval Shooting With Time Lapse Video

    Interval shooting allows 1–99 shots, from 1 second to 24 hour time interval to easily shoot a series of pictures. The E–PL6 also has a valuable feature that easily converts a series of pictures taken using interval shooting into a time-lapse movie (Max 10 seconds movie at 99 shots).

    Full 1080I HD Movies

    Shoot up to 29 minutes of 1080 60i HD video and stereo sound in either .MOV or .AVI formats. A Direct HD Movie Button switches you from still to movie mode with just the press of a button. Shoot movies with Art Filters, and new to the E–PL6, change your Art Filter while shooting your movie and see the transition right on the LCD, without missing a beat.

    4x Digital Zoom In Movie Mode

    One–touch 4x digital converter for movie. You can zoom easily with the touch LCD.

    Ease Of Use

    The flip, touch screen rotates 170 degrees upward and 65 degrees downward. In addition to low angles and high angles, this feature makes self portraits easy and fun. The E–PL6 is designed to optimize the touch screen LCD and was introduced to operate the MENU display with a new simple operation instead of a mode dial. The E–PL6's Touchscreen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch, even if the subject is not in the center.

    Live Guide

    The E–PL6's Live Guide system allows you to preview effects as you adjust them – before the image is even captured. Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, tone, etc. Operating the camera is more intuitive with the newly designed user interface. The on–screen graphics have also been updated with a sleeker font design and an automatic pop–up guide in the menu screen.


    A convenient, fully automated feature that detects the scene and applies the best of six situations just by aiming the camera toward the subject. Backlight adjustment are automatically applied for Portrait and Landscape modes. iAuto is also available for
