Product Details

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Digital Compact System Camera Body Only: Silver

The
Olympus OM-D E-M5 Digital Camera Body includes enhanced innovations and
takes all of the past engineering expertise of the Micro Four Thirds
system and wraps it into a classic OM design that's compact and
portable. Specifically for the Micro Four Thirds lenses, the enthusiast
Olympus E-M5 includes a weather sealed magnesium alloy body and an
electronic viewfinder (EVF) system. Unlike an optical viewfinder, it
lets you frame your images and get creative with them too – controlling
highlights, shadows, white balance, magnification and aspect before even
taking the shot. The E-M5's large 16 megapixel sensor and powerful
TruePic VI processor work together to ensure exceptional image quality.
The E-M5 features a fast AF system with vastly improved functionality
and a 5-axis image stabilisation designed to counter act vertical,
horizontal, and rotational movement to ensure images and movies are
sharp and clear.

The
Olympus OM-D E-M5 in detail

Superior
speed

Experienced
camera users will appreciate the advances in camera speed on the
OM-D, with the FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF
system, a world-beater also featured on the PEN E-P3, driving the
Live MOS Sensor at 120 fps. The speed of communications for
controlling the lens action has been improved, while the MSC
(Movie & Still Compatible) system has also been adopted for AF
speed increase and noise reduction in the lens. In sequential
shooting, the camera is capable of operating at an impressive 9
fps, and even with focus employed it can perform at a maximum
speed of 4.2 fps *3. Users are also sure to appreciate the
noticeable reduction in Live View return time after release. This
has been achieved by using independent image-processing cores for
the recorded images and Live View images, as found in the new
TruePic VI engine, since the output to the rear-panel monitor or
electronic viewfinder is no longer dependent on completing
recording of the captured image.

Superior
image quality and colour reproduction, plus Art Filter enhancements

The
new High-Speed Live MOS Sensor on the OM-D comes with 16.1
megapixels, and allied to the TruePic VI image processing engine
it offers excellent noise reduction capability and still image
shooting sensitivity as high as ISO25600. There’s more faithful
reproduction of a wide brightness range, thanks to the expanded
dynamic range. Fine Detail Processing technology, first seen on
the E-5, eliminates moiré and pseudo-colours, while Real-Colour
Technology is used to reproduce previously hard-torender colours
such as emerald green. The OM-D offers a new “Key Line” filter to
enhance edge lines, allowing the picture to look more like an
illustration; there are two variations, providing
different-strength effects. Art Filter Bracketing enables the user
to generate multiple pictures with different Art Filters from a
single shot – all features designed to inspire the user to
experiment and become more creative in their camera use.

Superior
viewfinder quality

The
1.44 million dot high-definition integrated electronic viewfinder
is a first on an Olympus interchangeable lens camera, and is sure
to prove a strong selling point. It features a 100% field of view
and max. 1.15x magnification, with an 18mm eye point. The
optimised display time lag is a major benefit, particularly when
shooting fast sports action, while the unique optical design means
the image can be viewed clearly from the centre to the periphery
with little or no vignetting. The camera’s eye sensor can switch
between the rear-panel monitor and electronic viewfinder
automatically – a small but significant enhancement to
ease-of-use. Information, including shutter speed, is displayed at
the bottom of the viewfinder – allowing the user to concentrate on
the framing operation. The electronic viewfinder, unlike an
optical viewfinder, also assists in image composition, by allowing
the user to check the effects of various manual adjustments and
Art Filters. Extended through-the-viewfinder operation is further
facilitated via a new interface, EVF Creative Control, which
enables separate adjustment of highlight and shadow brightness,
monitored using the viewfinder image with a tone curve overlay.
White balance, magnification and aspect ratio can similarly be
adjusted without the eye moving away from the viewfinder.

Superior,
world-first*1 5-axis image stabilisation (IS) 

The
previous mechanism compensated for camera shake by dealing with
two kinds of rotary movement, yaw and pitch. However, camera shake
is actually caused by five different kinds of motion, and the new
IS mechanism now also corrects effectively for horizontal shift,
vertical shift and rotary motion (rolling). Particularly when
shooting at larger magnifications (macro shooting), the user will
appreciate the value of being able to correct blur. The OM-D also
comes equipped for shooting on the move, as multi-motion IS with
wide frequency-band compatibility compensates for shake.

Superior
movie functions

The
camera’s built-in IS has evolved into the MSC (Movie and Still
Compatible) IS system, offering improved stabilisation of movie
images. Users who like to perform their movie post-editing on a PC
will particularly appreciate the Full-HD movie recording function
which adopts the MOV format (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264). It allows a
recording time of about 29 minutes. Traditional AVI (Motion JPEG)
format is also available. Linear PCM audio is used for both
recording modes. One-shot echo and multiecho effects can now be
added to movies, adding to the user’s creative options.

Superior
ease-of-use and reliability

Alongside
the enhancements to facilitate operation while working through the
viewfinder, the OM-D also features a 3.0-inch OLED rear-panel
monitor that can be tilted by max. 80° upwards or max. 50°
downwards, to assist when shooting from high and low angles. It
uses a special layout of 610,000 dots and can display video data
equivalent to VGA, while its capacitive-type touchscreen has a
high response speed that enables intuitive operation with
finger-tip focussing and shutter release. In a further development
facilitating ease-of-use, the Live Bulb feature updates the Live
View image on the rear-panel monitor at preset intervals during
bulb shooting. It also allows the user to assess the final image
during the exposure and to adjust the exposure time accordingly.

 The
OM-D is a camera to rely on, even in demanding conditions. It
makes extensive use of shields and has a tough dust-/splashproof
construction. To facilitate use of interchangeable lenses, Olympus
has developed the SSWF (Super-Sonic Wave Filter). Installed in
front of the image sensor, it is activated as the camera is
switched on to remove any dust attached to the image sensor by
generating supersonic vibrations.

Superior
lens options

The
OM-D is compatible with all MFT Olympus lenses, which will be
supplemented by two new lens options later this year: the M.ZUIKO
DIGITAL ED 75mm 1:1.8 and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 60mm 1:2.8 macro.
The 75mm lens is in a high-quality metal design and affords fast
aperture settings for portraits and indoor sports shooting, while
the dustand splash proof 60mm lens features 1:1 macro and a
closest shooting distance of just 0.19m.
