Pen E-P5 Camera from Olympus Formally Released

A leak may have exposed the PEN E-P5 camera from Olympus, but in the days that passed since then, the company has managed to get around to formally releasing the photo and video capture device. 

Not that the camera is up for sale. It isn't. Shipments will only start being carried out at the end of this month (May 2013). 

It can be ordered here, for the rather unflattering price of $1,000 / €769-1,000 (body only, no auxiliary lens). 

The core specs are a 16-megapixel TruePic VI Live MOS sensor, a 1.04 million dot tilting LCD touchscreen, and an in-body 5-axis image stabilization system. 

There is an optional eyepiece too, which has a 2.36 million dot LCD, 1.48x magnification, and eye detection. 

The shutter speed is also very important: 1/8000th of a second. 

Black, white and silver trim color options will be available, among other things.
