The PEN E-PL8 from Olympus will replace the current PEN E-PL7 camera which has been introduced back in August, 2014.
We have met an articulated 3-inch touchscreen LCD capable of flipping downward by 180° for selfie shooting with the Olympus E-PL7 for the first time. We can expect a similar tilting LCD display for the new model. See the top plate and the lens cap of the camera.
The Olympus E-PL7 mirrorless shooter with a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds image sensor that provides 3-axis image stabilization system. The specs list includes 8 fps continuous shooting and built-in Wi-Fi.
You can see the next MILC rear image showing the articulated 3″ LCD screen which will also be capable of flipping downward by 180°.
