With a 20.4MP live MOS sensor, this Olympus mirrorless camera brings your photography to life with sharp detail, accurate autofocus and sequential shooting. The 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation stops handshake while the vari-angle touchscreen lets you take shots from different angles. Weatherproof, taking on dust, frost and splashes while being light and compact, it’s the adventure travellers dream.

Weatherproof, compact and lightweight

With a robust body design and deep grip for better hand feel, this Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is still compact and lightweight. It’s the perfect answer to light and easy travel, without compromising on unrivaled quality. This camera will weather just about any environment, from wet splashes to a snow storm. You’ll be able to capture those moments that would normally be too rough to capture.

3.0" 1.04m-dot vari-angle touchscreen

The Olympus 3.0" 1.04m-dot vari-angle touchscreen gives you the flexibility to take shots from various angles, and point and shoot with just your fingertip. On-screen finger touch makes it easy to navigate settings, record video, autofocus and take momentary snaps. The multi-angle screen gives you great versatility, whether it’s taking a selfie with an incredible backdrop behind you or getting into a precarious angle. It folds back in easily to protect the screen when not in use.

5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation

Whether you’re shivering from the cold, battling gale-force winds or simply have a slight shake in your hand, the 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation will prevent any unnecessary blur from shakiness or movement. That’s great news if you want to take long exposure shots without a tripod. It also means your videos won’t be rocky. The stabilisation functionality also helps with telephoto shooting.

TruePic VIII dual quad core processor

An incredibly advanced high-speed of 18fps with full AF/AE tracking and 15fps with a mechanical shutter is made possible with the TruePic VIII dual quad core processor. The E-M1 Mark II performs with ultrafast speeds of 60fps with an electronic shutter in AE/AF lock. The sequential shooting performance is unparalleled, ensuring you don’t miss the opportunity for that once-off shot. Contrast detection is picked up for fast and precise focusing and subject tracking performance.

20.4MP live MOS sensor

You’ll be able to capture tricky momentary instances in high resolution without a problem. The 20.4MP live MOS sensor delivers exceptionally high resolution detail that outperforms in low light. The expanded sensitivity of ISO 25600 support shooting in difficult lighting conditions. The electronic viewfinder provides smooth and fast display at a 120fps with hardly a time delay.

4K video with DCI 4K and UHD 4K modes

When a photo won’t capture the moment just like a video would, you’ve got 4K video to rely on. Film in both DCI 4K and UHD 4K modes for cinema-ready recordings. Time lapse can be the best way to capture a scene, easily produced in movie mode on this camera.
