Following our photo review, we tried our hands on the new functions introduced in Olympus's upcoming compact digital SLR PEN E-P2.

PEN E-P2 features "i-FINISH" mode to capture the scene alive and dynamically, as well as various "Art Filters" that instantly give your pictures artistic touch. The picture above is shot with one of them, "Diorama Filter" that give you Tilt-shift-like effect.

PEN E-P2 also features HD video shooting mode and you can also use Art Filters with it.

Shot with Rough Monochrome filter, the video looks to be quite dated.

Frame rate will be greatly reduced in Diorama mode, and you can't record sound. It comes out as a time-lapse, which kind of fit the diorama-like appearance.
