Retro-styled Olympus E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera gets a new silver finish


The original Olympus E-P1 was a retro gem, while its follow-up was more of the same, but with that all-black colourway, didn't quite have the same retro value. Well, that's been put right with the launch of the silver Olympus E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera.

As you can see, retro is back to the fore, while the camera itself is no different to the second generation model, except it comes in a little cheaper. So you get that Micro Four Thirds technology (all the functionality of a digital SLR, but none of the bulk), along with an optional electronic viewfinder and external microphones, a couple of art filters, an i-Enhance function to improve your finished snaps and the ability to record 7 minutes of AVI format movies in 30fps at HD (1280x720p) resolution.
