Olympus Pen E-PL9
Built with social media sharing in mind, the PEN E-PL9 is a stylish rig that can easily pass images to smartphones over Bluetooth or WiFi. But more importantly, it takes 16-megapixel pictures and shoots 4K video that puts your phone camera to shame. The four-thirds sensor picks up more light, the three-axis stabilization smooths out camera shake, and the interchangeable lens system allows you to dial in the visual field for wide-angle landscapes or close up shots.
But it’s the camera’s premium build that makes the biggest impact right out of the box. The combination of brushed aluminum and grain leather provide a big upgrade from a hunk of smartphone glass.
