The Olympus OM-D E-M5 is a lightweight 16.1 MP mirrorless camera featuring a Live MOS sensor and TruePic VI image processor with a 5-axis sensor with shift image stabilization, ideally suited for travel and capturing everyday life.
Equipped with a 16.1MP Live MOS sensor with a powerful TruePic VI image processor the Olympus OM-D E-M5 offers extraordinary resolution and accurate color rendition. The sensor has an ISO range capable of 200-25,600 with a shutter speed of 1/4000sec, and can shoot at up to 9fps. To compensate for up to 5 stops of horizontal and vertical angular shifts (yaw/pitch), the camera also features 5-axis in-body image stabilization. This system corrects for camera shake along the optical axis (roll) resulting in incredibly sharp images and video in a compact form factor. For video, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 has full HD 1080i/60 movie recording.
The 1.44 million-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) has 100% coverage and provides 1.15x magnification with the ability to preview image effects in real-time. The rear 3" tilting touchscreen monitor contains 610k-dot OLED display which features live-view monitoring. The monitor offers such functions as touch-to-release shutter, focus point selection, touch magnification, image navigation, filtering effects, and much more.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 provides a 35-point FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF system allowing for single-shot, continuous, and AF tracking focusing methods. With a metering range of EV 0.0 - EV 20.0 and EV compensation of -3 EV to +3 EV (in 1/3 EV Steps), the camera allows metering modes of center-weighted average, multi-zone, and spot metering. It will also allow bulb mode up to 8 minutes exposures.
Take full creative control with the Art Filtering and Art Effect systems, which includes modes such as Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Light Color, Light Tone, Grainy Film, Pinhole, Diorama, Cross Process, Gentle Sepia, Dramatic Tone, Key Line, Soft Focus Effect, Pin-Hole Effect, White Edge Effect, Frame Effect, and Star Light Effect.
Paired with the impressive line-up of the Olympus M.Zuiko lens system, this camera can meet all of your photographic and video needs.
