Wetpixel moderator Sterling Zumbrunn has published a comprehensive review of the Olympus PEN E-PL1 camera and PT-EPO1 housing on Backscatter. He introduces the EVIL camera as:
Honey - I shrunk the SLR … and the price!”
The article is the result of extended testing of the system in the Cocos Islands, the Digital Shootout in Bonaire and in the Californian Channel Islands. Sterling outlines the pros and cons of the system, including some specific issues with the housing controls, and goes on to introduce and evaluate the dome ports available from third-party manufacturer Zen Underwater. Finally, he compares it to conventional compact camera offerings and SLRs, and finds that the E-PL1 effectively bridges the gap between the two.
