Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II – Limited Edition – Silver (Body Only)
Marking the 100th anniversary of Olympus is a limited edition, silver version of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II. The limited edition model is strictly limited to 2,000 units worldwide!
Durable, versatile and fast the OM-D E-M1 Mark II from Olympus is Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, offering a broad range of stills and video-minded functionality. It revolves around a high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and TruPic VIII image processor, the E-M1 Mark II sports a truly fast 60fps continuous shooting rate with an electronic shutter, 18fps with continuous autofocus and 15fps with a mechanical shutter. For video shooters, both DCI and UHD 4K recording modes can be used, along with a Tim-lapse Movie Mode for producing in-camera 4K time-lapse sequences. The processor and sensor also avail a top expanded sensitivity of ISO 25600 to support shooting in difficult lighting conditions and sensor-shift-type 5-axis image stabilisation also helps to minimise the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Also, the sensor's design also incorporates 121 on-chip phase-detection points, all of which are cross-type, along with 121 contrast detection areas for fast and precise focusing and subject tracking performance.
To complement the imaging capabilities, the E-M1 Mark II also sports a durable magnesium alloy design that is weather-resistant for working in harsh climates. The camera body features both a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and 3.0" 1.04m-dot vari-angle LCD touchscreen for intuitive control and working from a variety of angles. Built-in Wi-Fi further expands sharing and remote shooting capabilities and dual SD card slots and a USB 3.0 Type C port expands file saving and tethered shooting options.
TruPic VIII Image Processor and 20.4MP Live MOS Sensor
A high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and TruPic VIII image processor pair to avail notably fast shooting performance. All this alongside impressive image quality, an expanded sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 and 4K video recording capabilities. Ideal for sports and wildlife shooting, the processor and sensor combination avails a full-resolution, RAW file continuous shooting rate of 60fps when working with the silent electronic shutter function and single-shot AF, or 18fps with continuous autofocus. If working with the mechanical shutter, up to 15fps with single-shot AF is possible.
DCI and UHD 4K Video Recording and Time-Lapse Movie Mode
The processor and sensor also support recording both DCI (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K movies. When working in DCI, a true 24fps frame rate is used, along with IPB compression and a 237 Mbps bit-rate and UHD 4K is available in frame rates up to 30p and a 102 Mbps bit-rate. Full HD 1080p and HD 720p recording is also supported. Audio recording is possible using the built-in stereo microphone, however both an external mic jack and headphone jack are available for improved audio monitoring.
In addition to video recording, a Time-lapse Movie Mode is also available for recording up to 4K UHD resolution with a 5fps shooting rate to highlight subject changes or movement over a longer period. Full HD and HD time-lapse settings are also available.
Pro Capture Mode
Helping to ensure you don’t miss the shot, Pro Capture Mode is a unique setting that starts recording and buffering full-resolution JPEG or RAW images prior to full depressing the shutter. When you press the shutter button halfway, frames will begin to be recorded and once you full press the shutter, the image will be saved in addition to the previous 35 frames. You can also hold the shutter button in this mode to keep shooting continuously using the silent electronic shutter function.
Dual F.A.S.T Autofocus
A dual F.A.S.T autofocus system combines both 121 on-chip phase-detection points and 121 contrast detection areas for focusing performance that is both quick and accurate. The 121 phase-detection points are all cross-type too, for improved precision in mixed lighting conditions, as well as enhanced subject tracking capabilities. A single button can be used to switch between focusing modes, including all point, single point, 9-point group and 5-point cross and a Subject Tracking Cluster Display utilised continuous AF for fast-moving subject tracking. In contrast, manual focus users are benefitted by live view magnification and focus peaking controls for greater accuracy.
5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilisation
Sensor-shift image stabilisation, in-body, helps to minimise the appearance of camera shake by up to 5.5 stops with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements that become especially notable when working with telephoto shots, macro imagery and long exposures. Furthermore, this unique image stabilisation system works across five axes to compensate for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shit and rolling camera shake movement. This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditions still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively. Additionally, image stabilisation can also be used when framing shots, for more accurate compositions, by half-pressing the shutter button.
