'So Olympus is trying again to lure this lucrative audience to its Micro Four Thirds camp, this time with the more consumer-friendly designed and priced E-PL1.
'The most interesting Art Filters slow down operation (and make the movie mode virtually useless). '
'And in the eyes of many consumers the E-PL1 will best its more expensive bigger brother due to the fact that, for the first time, Olympus has included a built-in, pop-up flash, activated by a thumb switch situated at the top left-hand edge of the camera back. '
'The plastic is quite thin in places and the camera feels a bit flimsy and fragile, especially the battery/card hatch which looks like it could snap off with little provocation.'
'in the palm the camera feels solid and of very similar dimensions to its bigger brother the Mju 7010.'
'Manages available light well.'
'The FE-5020's 2.7-inch LCD display is great for playing back pictures and features a backlight boost button for better visibility in direct sunlight.'
