Touch Selfie

If you want to take better selfies, the E-PL8 is for you. Simply flip down the monitor to easily capture next-level selfies that cannot be taken with a smartphone. Also, with selfie movies you can communicate a richer message.

Beautiful selfies even at night

With the E-PL8 you never have to worry about selfies turning out poorly even in backlit or night scenes. The camera automatically detects the scene for shooting, so each and every shot results in a beautiful selfie.

  • General smartphone: Image is dark overall and the ambiance is lost.
  • E-PL8: The subject in the foreground and the nightscape in the background are both captured beautifully, conveying the ambiance.

Selfie movies let you capture yourself speaking and moving

With selfie movies, you can capture yourself speaking and moving. The new selfie mode for movies makes it easy to capture everything from your travels to everyday life.
