The entry-level Olympus PEN E-PL9 has received the “special edition” treatment. What’s so special about it? Well, it’s blue. Oh yes. But, the E-PL9 won’t leave you feeling blue after you use it. For an entry-level camera, it’s pretty capable. It houses a 16.1MP Micro Four Thirds CMOS sensor that’s capable of shooting 4K UHD video at 30fps and stills at up to 8.5fps.
We had the chance to check them out at The Photography Show a couple of months ago, although we did get a little distracted by shiny new lenses. It’s not a bad little performer, and Olympus claim it’s rapidly becoming a favourite for bloggers who want to pack light.
