Despite the Olympus OM-D E-M1’s compact and light design –
it weighs 38% less than the average DSLR camera – this OM-D delivers the best
images in the history of Olympus cameras. That’s thanks not least to world-
first 5-axis Image Stabilisation, its TruePic VII image processor and Live MOS
sensor. The original, black E-M1 has already won numerous awards and the new,
silver version continues the OM-D tradition of retro-inspired, iconically
angular, metal-bodied cameras that stand out from the much heavier and larger
competition in the full-format and APS-C DSLR categories.Form clearly follows
function for Olympus designers, and the firmware upgrade that accompanies the
new E-M1 will be just as important as the camera’s good looks, for pros and
semi-professionals alike. Olympus responded to requests from working
photographers by developing firmware Version 2.0, which includes USB tethering
capability for full integration in collaborative workflows at studio shoots.
Once the E-M1 is connected to a computer via a USB cable, the free Olympus
Capture software mirrors the Live View on the computer screen, making it
easier to discuss changes with clients, models and other team members stress-
free. Of course, it’s also possible to adjust settings and release the shutter
directly from the computer.Another feature of Version 2.0 will interest
architecture photographers in particular: in-camera Digital Shift. Using two
dials, this lets you correct the converging lines of trapezoidal distortion
straight away on the Live View – irrespective of the lens attached. No post-
processing or lens adjustment required. In combination with 5-axis Image
Stabilisation, Dual Fast AF and OM-D trademark weatherproofing (the E-M1 is
dust, splash and freezeproof), in-camera Digital Shift makes the E-M1 ideal
for capturing pro-standard images of buildings from a variety of outdoor
angles, in virtually any conditions.Other highlights of the new firmware
include Live Composite, two new creative Art Filters and further reduced
viewfinder lag (down to 16ms from 29ms). Live Composite lets you capture
trails of lights such as stars, fireworks or traffic, even when the scene
would be too bright for Live Bulb. You can monitor progress on the Live View
display. The Partial Colour and Vintage Art Filters boost the potential for
adding sophisticated on-camera effects. Partial Colour highlights one part of
image in colour and leaves the rest in black and white. Like Vintage, which
lends images a nostalgic charm, it gives you a choice of three different
settings.The E-M1 includes an OI.Share software upgrade with an improved range
of features that can be remote controlled via WiFi from a compatible
smartphone. In addition to the existing features such as wireless shutter
release, LIVE View mirroring and P, A, S and M control, it’s now possible, for
example, to activate the self-timer for sequential and interval shooting
directly from the smartphone screen. Box Contains Olympus OM-D E-M1Camera Body
