The PEN Lite E-PL7 is the ultimate selfie camera, making selfies easy with a flip-down touch screen and selfie mode to create the ultimate selfie every time. Selfies can be captured with ease via the touch screen or shutter button, and when used with the Olympus range of lenses, the E-PL7 takes selfies to a new level. Photos can then be transferred to smart devices on the spot using the built-in Wi-Fi, allowing you to share everything with friends and family.

Touch Selfie
The large, high-resolution flip-down touchscreen makes taking selfies easier than ever. The E-PL7 includes a dedicated selfie mode and VCM image stabilisation to suppress camera shake that often occurs when the camera is operated with a single hand. Now selfies will be beautiful, high-quality images for everyone to enjoy.

Smart Device Connectivity
Share the high-quality images on social networks, or remotely control your camera with your smart device together with the camera's built-in Wi-Fi and Olympus Image Share app. The E-PL7 is the first model in the PEN Lite series to feature built-in Wi-Fi. It makes taking photos more enjoyable than ever before.

Art Filters expand your photographic expression
To further expand your photographic expression the E-PL7 features two new Art Filters, Vintage and Partial Colour. Additionally, a new Art Effect is featured in the E-PL7, Shade Effect, which adds a line of shadow to either of top, bottom, left or right side of your image.

State-of-the-art technology that captures the precise moment
The E-PL7 is generously packed with photographic technology that takes outstanding photographs of the precise moment you wish to capture. It boasts a beautiful 16.05 million dot high-sensitivity Live MOS sensor, the new TruePic VII image processor for image rendering, 8.0 fps high-speed sequential shooting, and in-body image stabilisation system that compensates for camera shake with any attached interchangeable lens.

Design & colour variation
The distinctive character lines across in the top portion of the camera that carry on the PEN identity, the historical OLYMPUS PEN logo, and the fine material used for the body wrap all contribute to the E-PL7's premium design.
