Camera Review: Olympus OM-D/E-M5

The new, revolutionary mirrorless camera, the award-winning OM-D E-M5, has an exceptionally light and compact body.

The OM-D is a groundbreaking, new digital interchangeable lens camera perfect for people who want to take part, create, and share.

The OM-D’s new electronic viewfinder (EVF), with 120 fps refresh rate, features a high-resolution 1.44-million dot LCD, 100% field-of-view coverage, and 1.15x maximum magnification.

Dust-proof & Splash-proof Construction

Multiple ring-shaped seals protect the camera from sand, dust, rain, and water spray, making it ideal for all kinds of outdoor shooting.

Two full size control dials in concert with dedicated function buttons allow fast setting changes on the fly. Adjust highlight and shadow, exposure, white balance, aspect ratio and more and preview the results instantly in the EVF or on the tilting 3” OLED touch screen.

All New Sensor

A new 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor for rich tonal expression, increased dynamic range and support for a maximum 25,600 maximum ISO.

5-Axis Image Stabilization

The E-M5 equipped with the world’s first 5-axis image stabilization system, and can compensate for vertical, horizontal, and rotational camera shake that conventional 2-axis systems of the past have been unable to handle. Built into the camera body to ensure effective stabilization with all lenses, its unique 5-axis design makes it particularly effective when taking high-magnification telephoto shots, macro close-ups, and long exposures.

Fast AF

The world’s fastest AF system, FAST AF, is faster and more accurate on the E-M5. Improved new 3D Tracking AF assures you won’t miss the moment even when subjects move toward or away from you, and the new high-sensitivity image sensor ensures superior AF performance even in dim light.

9 fps High-Speed Sequential Shooting

Thanks to the new 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor’s high-speed read-out performance, the E-M5 offers a sequential shooting at 9 fps, making it easy to capture sports action or fast-moving subjects such as pets, kids and wildlife. In addition, a compact new high-speed shutter mechanism enables the E-M5 to offer this performance without compromising the handling advantages of a light and compact body.
