Professional Level Ergonomics

Olympus has redefined professional level mirrorless cameras with the OM-D E-M1X, putting ergonomics and handling at the forefront its design. The integrated battery grip not only extends runtime, it also provides perfectly mirrored camera controls for both vertical and horizontal shooting, giving you the flexibility to work comfortably at any angle without compromise.

Superb Image Quality

A 20.4 megapixel Live MOS Sensor produces fine, detailed images with life-like colour reproduction. The sensor is optimised for use at higher sensitivities so even lowlight shooting is no worry. Designed to maintain the highest image quality, the sensor also features animproved Super Sonic Wave Filter and an improved coating that increases dust and debris-resistance for consistent images every time.

Dual TruePic VIII Image Processors

TwinTruePic VIII Image Processorson means the camera functions are smooth and speedy. One processor is dedicated to lightning-fast image processing while the other handles camera operations and control. Together, they make advanced functions, like High Res Shot, Live ND, and Subject Detection feel like an absolute breeze, so you’re free to focus on getting the perfect shot.

Impressive Sequential Shooting Options

The18fps drive mode features auto focus tracking and auto exposure, allowing you to concentrate on simply getting the shot. The E-M1X also offers a ridiculously quick 60 frames per second when autofocus and exposure are locked on the first frame. Ideal for capturing fast-paced action, both modes can be used in Silent mode, so you can fly under the radar in quiet locations and events.

Redefining Autofocus Capabilities

The E-M1X benefits from an improved autofocusing system with 121 cross-type focus points in its on-chip AF sensor. This provides snappy, reliable autofocus that’s able to meet the rigorous demands of professionals, from sports and wildlife shooters, to run-and-gun photo journalists.

Intelligent Subject Detection

Building on the already amazing autofocusing capabilities of the camera, Olympus has included advanced AI developed Intelligent Subject Tracking. Three different settings cover a range of typically fast moving subjects; Planes, Trains, and Cars. These modes ensure the best AF and tracking performance is selected for your subject so you can focus on composition and having fun.

Unparalleled 5-Axis Stabilisation

The EM1X has an updated 5-axisin-body stabilisation system with an amazing 7 stops of vibration control on the body alone. When combined with the M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO lens, it goes up to 7.5 stops for truly controlled shooting. This remarkable level of stabilisation lets you capture sharp, clear handheld images and video in almost any situation, night or day.

4K Video Recording and Editing Flexibility

Maintaining its focus on video, the O-MD EM1X also shoots beautifully clear cinema quality 4K video. The camera supports OM-Log400 shooting, great for situations where your lighting might change frequently. This flat profile helps maintaindetails in the highlights and shadows of your frame, giving you more editing and colour grading flexibility when it comes to post-production work.

Pro Capture Mode Included

Taking after its more compact E-M1mkII sibling, the E-M1X also features the popular Pro Capture mode. In this mode, the camera can retroactively record up to 35 frames from the time the shutter is released, resulting in no blackouts during shooting. With support for RAW mode, this much lauded function is an excellent addition for professional photographers.

Handheld High Res Shot

Another marked addition to the E-M1X’s impressive feature repertoire is Handheld High Res Shot mode. In its former iteration, High Res Shot required the use of a tripod, but thanks to this improvement, photographers can now capture ultra-high-resolution images with or without a tripod, expanding your creative versatility even further.

Dual UHS-II Memory Card Slots

The Olympus E-M1X provides two UHS-II memory card slots to accommodate the high-speed, high-capacity media required to support the camera’s capabilities. Dual cards means you can record video to the second one when the first is full, or create a back-up as you go. This pro level feature offers added peace of mind for shooters working on time-limited events like weddings.

Class-Leading Viewfinder

A newly designed electronic view finder (EVF) features a four element design that offers clear, distortion-free viewing across the whole frame. The EVF provides a 0.83x magnification andsuper-quick 120fps refresh rate that makes tracking your subjects even easier than you think.

Live ND Technology

For still images, built-in Live ND technology can create dreamy-looking slow shutter style images in-body, no ND filter required. The camera achieves this by combining multiple exposed images and has five different levels to choose from; ND2, ND4, ND8, ND16, and ND32. You can evenpreviewthe ND effects in the viewfinder before shooting for more streamlined workflow.

Rugged, Weather-Sealed Body

Olympusconducts some of the most punishing in-house build quality testing and as a result, their cameras have industry-leading weather-sealing standards. The OM-D E-M1X is no exception, built to be dustproof, splash proof and freeze proof to -10°C so you can go confidently into any situation and have the pictures to prove it.
