Olympus E-PL2 Camera: LED Lights For Short Range Pictures

From looking at the picture you may be wondering if Olympus have teamed up with Spiderman’s enemy Dr.Octopus to make a camera. Well, this is Olympus’ new creation; it’s called the E-PL2. Generally Olympus cameras are known for their quality so we are hoping that when we see this one at CES 2011 that they keep their good reputation.

As you can see, the camera is a little bit different looking, it has arms! The arms are present to provide lighting for even when you are dark places. It’s a very clever concept; the arms look to be durable enough to go into multiple positions so you have the light how you want it.

This could be revolutionary, especially when you think about one of the biggest businesses in the world, Weddings. As I found out, pictures are better in better natural sunlight. If the LED lighting can get as close to natural sunlight as possible, then it would open up one huge door to success. This is just one possibility, I’m sure you can all come up with more.
