PEN E-PL3 3

Overall image quality is very good.

PEN E-PL3

The E-PL3 does a good job when faced with high-contrast scenes like this. A small amount of highlight detail on the buildings has been lost, but overall this image is typical of the kind of quality the E-PL3 delivers.

PEN E-PL3 7

The i-Enhance Picture Mode setting delivers plenty of punch without being unrealistic.

PEN E-PL3 3

Here we've used the Pop Art filter to spice up the reflection of the trees in the water.

PEN E-PL3 7

The Diorama Art Filter can be used to make landscapes look like scale models.

PEN E-PL3

You can also use the Diorama Art Filter to get a kind of Lensbaby effect.

PEN E-PL3 5

Taking the E-PL3 to London Zoo we were able to use Shutter-priority to freeze the seagulls in flight.

PEN E-PL3 3

Shooting through a glass tank, the swimming penguins have come out clearer than we might have hoped.

PEN E-PL3 3

As with pretty much all cameras, the E-PL3 delivers the best results in the late afternoon sunshine!

PEN E-PL3 7

The E-PL3's Marcro mode disappoints, so this image was shot at 42mm in Aperture-priority mode instead.

PEN E-PL3

For this shot of the moths, we again used Aperture-priority to blur the background somewhat.

PEN E-PL3 5

We used the Digital Teleconverter feature for this shot of the lion, and just about got away with a usable shot. Viewed any larger than this though, you can clearly see the effects of digital magnification. Not something we would use very often if truth be told.
