Olympus Pen E-PM2 review


Price as reviewed:


Dynamic range

There is a noticeable improvement in the dynamic range of the E-PM2 compared to the last generation of Olympus micro four thirds cameras. The basic 12.1-million-pixel, four thirds-sized sensor first appeared as far back as 2009 in the Olympus E-30, and although changes have been made in the years since, the new 16.1-million-pixel unit has still more current technology to help ensure improved dynamic range and noise reduction. As a result, there is more detail in highlight and shadow areas, and high-contrast images are improved.
