Now shipping: Olympus E-PL9 in three colors and two kit options

A dramatic entrance by the Olympus E-PL9 mirrorless camera.

Three color schemes are available, black, white and brown, but borrowing from the naming craze of smartphones, they call them “onyx black”, “pearl white”, and “honey brown”. I’m personally holding out for the “truly blue” or the fire orange of the HTC U11 😉

This camera too has the high speed shooting technology that can go up to 9fps. Once a feature only found in dedicated sports cameras, now it’s propagating here and there and everywhere…

The various options are now in-stock and shipping at Get Olympus and Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself.
