Olympus PEN E-PL1 - Still Good In 2020?

Buy Me Coffee
My Photo \u0026 Video Gear

I have had Olympus PEN E-PL1 with me, I got it many years ago because I was curious about what Olympus was doing with their Mirrorless system in the earlier days. I have not used the E-PL1 for probably more than 5 years now, and I thought it would be fun to bring it out in 2020 and have a street photography spin with it. I can clearly see some issues with the earlier Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras, and how Olympus has come so far to fixing and improving their camera capabilities, from AF speed \u0026 accuracy to image sensor performance. I have an accompanying blog article here:

Robin Wong : I am still on holiday guys. This video was made last week. I am eating too much good food. See you guys next week!
Cezary Pielas : It was my first "serious" camera and I loved it back then. It's worth pointing out that it had a weaker AA filter than the higher-priced e-p1 and it produced sharper images (at the cost of occasional moire). Those 12 mp files were really very detailed (at low ISOs of course). On the other hand, it did suffer from shutter shock at certain shutter speeds. I have a lot of photos ruined by that.
Tim Lamb : I bought the E-PL9 in March as my "lockdown sanity saver" after my Sony RX100 (MK1) packed in. The E-PL9 is a fantastic little camera and has really got me back into photography in a big way. It's also cost me a lot of money buying lenses and accessories though! I'm glad I didn't go for another Sony RX model, this Olympus feels like a "real" camera. I need to save up for the OMD EM5 MK3 now - wish me luck! Thanks for all your video's Robin, they helped sway me away from Sony to Olympus. Keep up the great work, it's very much appreciated.
Isabel Cutler : The E-PL1 introduced me to micro43 and I absolutely loved it. I shot in the IEnhance mode and found the jpgs the best out of any camera I had that offered an option of raw and jpg. The optional viewfinder was an absolutely necessity. When I moved up to an E-PL5 I found the OOC jpgs weren't as eye-popping as those from the E-PL1 and I used raw again. Several years after acquiring it I found the IS notification in the screen starting blinking and I knew I wasn't going to send it to be fixed so I tested it to see if it still worked, and it did. The blinking was merely annoying. I have since acquired 5 other Olympus bodies, all of which have given me great joy and which keep me saying micro43 with Olympus is my favorite system, a total joy to use. I have had no trouble with any of them, except for the IS indication blinking in the E-PL1.
Tim Havard : I bought an E-PL1 last year as a trial to see if I would like M43 after tiring of the ever increasing size of APS-C and FF cameras. It seemed to be a very cheap way to put my toe in the water, in fact I paid around £35 for one with a kit lens. I was so impressed I quickly added an E-PL7 and then sold my DSLR and bought a O-MD - e-m5 mkii and a few other lenses! I thought I'd sell the E-PL1 but I actually quite like the more imperfect images it produces. I am a surveyor and often crawl around old buildings (often literally!) and it's good to have an old small camera that I don't need to worry about that I can stuff in my pocket so I still have it!
Thanks for the great videos, Robin!

JDMz : unless you need to print posters all the time or need to do sports photography, you won't miss out on much with a camera like this. I have 2 DSLRs and I am looking to sell one to get a smaller camera for street use. The images you get are based on skills and not on the equipment.
Manuel Perez : This was my favorite camera I have ever owned. I traveled all over the US with it. As old as it is, it takes amazing pictures.
Aleksandar : I bought one the last week, and I DEFINITELY suggest it to anyone, I's a great camera, with all the features of an entry level dslr, it's really sharp, and it has a great focusing ring, really precise. The only bad sides i discovered were that is no RAW+JPEG format, but you have to chose between those, and it doesn't have a focus light incorporated. The video is FANTASTIC, unbeliveable.
I'm completely in love with it.
Dayf : This is the best tech review I've ever seen. Kudos for putting quality stuff up on youtube.
Rince Resource : great review. i have owned the epl-1 for about three weeks now and simply love it. i order a voigtlander adaptor for nikon f mount. i shoot the 50mm f1.8 and the newer 35mm f1.8. it's a wonderfull little camera when used within it's limitations. i use it more and more for my work as a reporter since i can get in and get shot i need without people even knowing i am there.

Marloon : @Claggy All Micro 4/3rd cameras have a 2.0x crop sensor. So in order to get the focal length equivalent to a full frame camera, you just have to multiply your focal length by the crop size. So 14-42mm is really 28-84mm on a 35mm format.
Claggy : @marloon88 Ah yeah, I wasn't sure what the crop factor was on those. Thanks for the info!
Joseph Musama : Does it have an input for an external microphone?
Claggy : That 14-42mm lens would be equal to what on a full frame?
