Kind of Camera

By picking a Mirror-less camera, you'll be getting yourself a device that matches the capability of a DSLR while sporting a slightly smaller form factor. This is due the absence of the mirror and prism that drives the optical viewfinder of a typical DSLR.

Photography Skillset

Keeping it simple - For someone who is not too bothered about technicalities, this Olympus device works!

For those who are passionate about photography at a casual level but are prepared to make the occasional technical adjustments, the PEN E-PL9 is a very straightforward option. At this skill level you'll be comfortable utilising features such as the 121  "Auto Focus points" that this camera comes with.

Video skill level

Simple clips - As a videography noob, this Olympus PEN E-PL9 video camera should be sufficient for your needs.

Even though recording videos is a passion, you're not necessarily looking to go pro. You're content with making tweaks to a couple of settings to suit the shot you're about to take. The PEN E-PL9 is very accessible which makes it suitable for this.

Video Scenarios

Streaming video live is a great way to share your experiences and this camera from Olympus provides a couple of connectivity options to help you with this.

For those special occasions, this Olympus camera is a great companion as you traverse the floor. It comes with an Image Stabilizer which helps maintain a steady shot while recording.

Its always great to capture moments of delight at home or while spending time with family and friends on an outing. For this, the Olympus PEN E-PL9 is a great companion to have.

Self made video content - Whether its in a specialist niche or broad subject area, video content is king (or queen) these days. With an image sensor size of 17.3 x 13 mm (mm), this camera can deliver really good image quality in your videos. It's also got Wi-Fi so if you can still make your transfers even if you're not with your cables.

Other Video needs

Ultra High Definition - you'll be able to capture immersive and highly detailed footage with this camera's 4K capability.

If you're looking for that silky-smooth rendering of your videos, this camera has got it as its able to handle 60 FPS at 1080p resolutions.

Breathtaking transitions such as rolling clouds or city lights can captured as a time-lapse using the Olympus's in-built intervalometer

Low light recording can be tricky, however this camera has got what it takes to help you through that. This is because its minimum aperture number combined with it's maximum ISO sensitivity can produce crispy images with minimal noise.

Photo Scenarios

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the PEN E-PL9 is an easy recommendation for this.

Its important to ensure the celebrant (or special guests) are in clear view in every photo taken. Keeping them in focus while they're moving about is one of the great features that comes with the PEN E-PL9 .

The thrilling action of sports is filled with magical moments that shouldn't be missed. Which is why by taking the PEN E-PL9 for those games, you'll have a camera that can effectively track subjects in frame while they are in motion.

Taking photos while underwater is a lot of fun. You'll be able to bathe the subject of your photograph with the colours and hues only found when taking shots in an aquatic environment.

Sometimes while on sightseeing or on a tour, you can only observe things from a distance. Which is why the zoom capability on this camera comes in handy in that situation.

When taking photos of the beautiful creatures of the wild, you'll need to have Tracking Focus mode activated so as not to miss any great moments while they are active in their habitat. Burst shots help as well, which this camera happens to have making it a very good option for your needs.

If you've got requirements to take photos of a variety of landscapes, then the presence of multiple scene modes on a camera is helpful in order to setup quickly and start shooting. This model from Olympus has got this capability making it a suitable option for your needs. In addition, this model has the ability to select what parts of your frame you would like to focus on before you take the shot.

Other considerations

With this model, you no longer need to worry about carrying cables for data transfer all the time as it comes with Wi-FI.

Whether you want to blend in, or have a camera that doesn’t attract unwanted attention, the basic design of the PEN E-PL9 fits the bill.
