Kind of Camera

The Mirror-less Camera is a very good option for taking those shots with a professional flair. The ability to change lenses and tweak a variety of photo settings can be quite powerful. 

Photography Skillset

Simple shots - As a photography noob, this Olympus PEN F camera would suit you adequately.

For those who are passionate about photography at a casual level but are prepared to make the occasional technical adjustments, the PEN F is a very straightforward option. At this skill level you'll be comfortable utilising features such as the 800  "Auto Focus points" that this camera comes with.

Video skill level

Just a beginner - Whether you're just starting to develop some expertise or you only record videos from time to time, then the Olympus PEN F will satisfy 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 F is very accessible which makes it suitable for this.

Video Scenarios

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 F 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 17.4 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

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

There are times when you just want to take simple but great photos of things around you without bothering too much about camera settings. For that purpose, the PEN F is a really good choice. 

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 F.

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

Whether its for living or non-living things, using the Olympus PEN F for aquatic photos is a treat.

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.

In scenarios where animals are darting about, the burst mode on this camera comes in handy as well as it's Tracking Focus capability. The combination of these features and the 17.4 x 13 mm (mm) Image Sensor on this camera, provides you with a device that suits your wildlife photography needs - whether tranquil or dramatic.
