Olympus makes the taking of selfies easier for your customers with the PEN E-PL7, a micro four thirds camera with a retro-style body and a 3-inch touchscreen one can flip downwards by 180 degrees.

Further making the E-PL7 more attractive to smartphone users is a selection of Instagram-style photo filters such as "Vintage" and "Old Film Effect" and wifi connectivity.

Specs-wise the camera features the 16MP sensor from the E-PL6 and the 3-axis image stabilisation from the E-M10, as well as an 81-point autofocusing system allowing one to shoot moving subjects at up to 3.5 FPS.
