E-M5 Mark II For Creative Enthusiasts
Featuring the world's most powerful Image Stabilisation system* the E-M5 Mark II is a revolution in photo capture. For film-making, it eliminates the need for a cumbersome stabiliser or gyro-rig to deliver clear, sharp movies from the palm of your hand. The E-M5 Mark II is packed with all the features the enthusiast photographer needs to capture amazing images and movies.
5-axis Image Stabilisation: World's most powerful 5-axis IS* ensures full sharpness.
OLYMPUS 5-axis Image Stabilisation (IS) is the culmination of the high-end OM-D experience ideal for handheld, low-light shooting conditions with a long exposure time, for instance when shooting indoors or at night. It compensates for every kind of jolt or camera shake covering vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, vertical shift, horizontal shift and rolling camera movement accurately preventing blurring and delivering amazingly clear, sharp images.
OM-D Movie:Crystal-clear scenes with built-in image stabilisation.
5-axis Image Stabilisation (IS) system from OLYMPUS allows for steady, freestyle filming, without the need for a camera stabiliser. So any videographer can closely follow the action, get right up to the subject and film from fascinating angles while walking and record clear, sharp movies at the same time. OM-D Movie also leverages multi-frame rate capture of up to 60fps, enabling cinema-like slow-motion and time-lapse style films for even
greater creative freedom with every take
Dustproof, splashproof, freezeproof: Made for virtually any weather and any location.
Other camera brands may claim to be ready for all-terrain shooting OM-D cameras truly are. Thanks to the practically impenetrable magnesium alloy body with up to 60 gasket rings for maximum protection, the high-end OM-D cameras are ideal for photography in damp habitats or sandy situations. The OM-D E-M1 and the new OM-D E-M5 Mark II go a step further, enabling operation in sub-zero temperatures right down to 10°C. This extreme-condition compatibility makes these cameras ideal for any number of photo assignments around the world, at any time of the year, ensuring worry-free capture of spectacular moments.
Advanced Electronic Viewfinder: Rivals even D-SLR cameras.
For gaining creative control over the scene or subject to be captured, all OM-D models feature an advanced Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) that makes bulky pentaprisms found on D-SLR cameras redundant. Easy to see, bright and clear, large, super-fast with high resolution and short lag time everything a photographer needs from an EVF and more. On the OM-D E-M5 Mark II, the EVF is in fact 1.3x larger than the average D-SLR EVF display.
40M High Res Shot: Amazing high-resolution shots thanks to ultra-precise VCM.
A world first**: new 40M High Res Shot from OLYMPUS generates super-high-quality images, rich in detail. A special component of this highly advanced technology is the moving 5-axis VCM IS mechanism. It slightly shifts the sensor left and right, by precise half-pixel increments, to sequentially capture eight images. These are then combined in-camera to create a single shot of an amazing 40 megapixels or 63.7 megapixels in the RAW file. 40M High Res Shot on the E-M5 Mark II achieves astonishing resolution comparable with much bulkier high-end D-SLRs.
