I have an Olympus Pen EPL7 and have just tried to transfer

Customer Question

I have an Olympus Pen EPL7 and have just tried to transfer some HD photos and videos onto my laptop. The photos are perfect but the videos have decreased in quality drastically and are awful and blurry which is crazy considering they are HD when viewed on the camera. I also took some stills whilst recording and these are also fine which makes me think there is an issue with the importing of the videos not the file itself. I've tried importing onto a Mac and a Windows laptop and have also used the Olympus viewing software but the quality is still shocking which is so confusing as they are stated as HD in the info when viewed on the camera. Please help I think I'm actually going to implode or self combust if I don't figure this out soon I really need these videos for a project:(

Hi Lucy!

My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

There are a number of different movie resolutions on the E-PL7:

1920x1080 (30p (24 or 16Mbps))
1280x720 (30p (12 or 8Mbps))
640x480 (30p)

If the quality is poor, try selecting the best setting (1920x1080)

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer worked so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
Otherwise please reply back if you need further assistance.
