The body jacket's flat-bottom design allows to mount the camera on a tripod and access the connector cover without having to remove it. Olympus E-PL6 has a score of 52 for Daily Photography which makes it an AVERAGE candidate for this type of photography. Even though some folks may stick their chin up at the fact that the E-PL6 does not have a 5-axis stabilization system, the 3-axis system seemed to work extremely well, as I was able to get some nice low-light shots handheld, even with a lens that only opened to f/3. On the plus side, the PEN is quick to adjust focus as the scene changes, and Olympus does sell an add-on microphone that works with the camera. Running along the rear, at a slight angle at the top of the body, are playback and delete buttons, the Fn button, a magnification button, and the Record button for movies.

In addition to low- and high-angle shooting, self-portrait shooting can also be enjoyed comfortably. E-PL6 has a native ISO range of 100 - 25600 and it can save files in RAW format which gives you a wider room for post processing.

When I see a scene that really stands out, I like to concentrate on getting the photo I want – and not fiddling with the camera. Even better, with a thickness of only 38mm, it is also quite small, 16mm thinner than the average of its class.

fps is possible by tracking the AF across a wider image area than with digital SLR cameras based on phase difference detection AF. Our newest imaging software supporting various styles of workflows, this software is packed with features that meet the demands of pro photographers. You may have already made your decision about which camera suits better for your needs and your budget so far, but in case you wonder how we rated Olympus E-PL8 and Olympus E-PL6, below you can find their scores in five different aspects.

It features quiet autofocus and zooming operation to benefit recording movies and also incorporates three aspherical elements to reduce aberrations and produce high image sharpness and clarity. If you missed it in the last paragraph, the E-PL6 fit nicely and easily into the cargo pocket of my shorts. The two remaining new features are closely related to each other, and were seen previously in the Olympus E-P5. The camera also features a range of substantial new functions that make photography more convenient and expand the shooting possibilities of the camera.In addition to its wide angle, the lens has a fixed aperture of f8 providing a deep depth of field so the lens can be permanently mounted on the camera and used as a pan-focus lens. Furthermore, despite having cool features like support for a mic, an onboard video light, support for screw-on lenses and filters on top of the original one, and a pretty low aperture of f1. Instead of the more sophisticated 5-axis system, the E-PL6 relies on a very effective 3-axis system. Since both Olympus E-PL8 and Olympus E-PL6 have the same Micro Four Thirds lens mount and Four Thirds sized sensors, lenses will not be a differentiator on total size of the system.
