One of the features of PEN Lite series, the tilting monitor, incorporates a large, high definition touch panel. Tilting 180o downward, it enables touch operation for taking photos with the same feel as one has when operating a smartphone. The “Selfie mode” activates when the monitor is tilted downward, allowing the use of a setting optimized for selfie with just a single touch.
