20.3 Megapixel Live MOS sensor

The Olympus PEN-F features a 20.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor to provide rich and detailed images. Additionally the filter uses no optical low pass filter (OLPF) to produce sharper images.

Front and rear dials & exposure compensation dial

Two of your most frequently used settings from among the aperture value, shutter speed, ISO speed, white balance, Ps (program shift), and flash compensation can be assigned to the front and rear dials. In addition, there is the exposure compensation dial, giving you a total of three settings you can adjust directly with the dials.

Dial with 4 Custom modes and a lock mechanism

You can register favourite settings from C1 to C4 on the mode dial and activate them with just the single twist of the dial. The dial is also equipped with a mode dial lock mechanism.

Rear lever

The camera is equipped with a rear lever that can be switched to the left or right to easily activate Highlight & Shadow Control and other artistic functions. The lever can be switched without having to take your eye away from the viewfinder, letting you adjust the image as you confirm the results of the adjustments.

Creative Dial

The Creative Dial is positioned on the front of the camera body so you can instantly access Monochrome Profile Control and Colour Profile Control, as well as Art Filter and Colour Creator functions.

TruePic VII image processor

The PEN-F is equipped with TruePic VII, the same image processor also used on the OM-D E-M1. TruePic VII optimises sharpness according to the optical characteristics of the attached lens and aperture (f-number) value, performs high-precision demosaicing optimised for the low-pass filter less sensor, and features Fine Detail II that reduces false colours. It brings out the potential of lenses to achieve sharpness and high resolution. Olympus proprietary image processing technology, Real Colour Technology, reproduces some colours that are thought to be difficult to reproduce such as emerald green and yellow more faithfully.

5-axis mechanical sensor-shift in-camera image stabilisation

The Olympus PEN-F features a new type of in-body 5-axis image stabilisation that compensates for all types of camera shake, even when recording videos. When combined with lenses with in-lens image stabilisation, 5-axis sync IS provides the world's most powerful stabilisation performance equivalent to 6.5 shutter speed stops. Even the in-body 5-axis image stabilisation on its own boasts outstanding stabilisation performance equivalent to 5.5 shutter speed stops.

Full HD Video Recording

The Olympus PEN-F can record Full HD(1920 x 1080) videos at smooth frame rates of up to 60p internally at a bit-rate up to 52Mbps. Additionally, the 5-axis mechanical sensor-shift image stabilisation is fully operational during video recording, enabling you to capture smooth video in Full HD handheld.

Wide light-sensitivity range of ISO 100 – 25,600

The PEN-F's sensor features a large light sensitivity range of ISO 100 - 25,600. The high light sensitivity enables the camera to capture imagery in extreme low light conditions, while the low ISO 100 enables shooting at larger apertures or slower shutter speeds without using neutral density filters.

50 Megapixel High Res Shot

The Olympus PEN-F features a 50 Megapixel High Res Shot function that is perfect for scenes where you need a higher resolution in photos, such as shooting artwork and landscapes. The camera moves the sensor in half-pixel increments while capturing eight shots, which are then used to generate a single high-resolution shot equal to that captured with a 50M sensor.

81-point autofocus

The 81-point AF system covers most of the image area with focus points and lets you focus on any small subject in the area.
