With a robust body design and a 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 quality. This camera will weather just about any environment, from heavy rain to a snowstorm. You’ll be able to capture every moment wherever you go.
The Olympus E-M1 Mark II's 3.0-inch 1.04m-dot vari-angle touchscreen gives you the flexibility to capture photographs from different angles at the touch of your finger on the screen. The touchscreen makes it easy to navigate settings, record video, autofocus and take photographs. 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, yet still folds back in easily to protect the screen when not in use.
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 minimise any unnecessary blur from shakiness or movement. That’s great news if you want to take long-exposure shots without a tripod. Eliminating camera shake will produce smooth video without blur. The stabilisation functionality also helps with the telephoto shooting.
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 Olympus 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 those rare shots. Contrast detection is picked up for fast and precise focusing and subject tracking performance.
You’ll be able to capture your shots in high resolution without a problem. The 20.4MP live MOS sensor delivers exceptionally high-resolution detail that performs fantastically in low light. The expanded sensitivity of ISO 25600 supports shooting in difficult lighting conditions. The electronic viewfinder provides a smooth and fast display at 120fps with hardly a time delay.
When a photo won’t capture the moment the way video would, you’ve got 4K video to rely on. Film in both DCI 4K and UHD 4K modes for cinema-ready recordings. You can also shoot time-lapse to capture a scene over a long period, which is easily produced in movie mode on this handy camera.
