The Olympus OM-D E-M5 II interchangeable lens camera is perfect for photographers and videographers looking for a system that captures an incredible amount of detail. Its improved 5-axis image stabilisation system works for both photo and video, producing maximum image clarity across a broad range of shooting scenarios.
16 Megapixel Live MOS Sensor
Using a proven 16 megapixel LiveMOS sensor the E-M5 II delivers vivid, detail-rich images and razor-sharp Full High Definition video.
5-Axis In-Camera Image Stabilisation
A powerful TruePic VII image processor is combined with the 5-axis in-body Voice Coil Motor (VCM) Image Stabilisation system to produce an amazing 5-stop advantage when shooting handheld. The IS system minimises camera shake significantly, allowing you to fully utilise available light and shoot natural looking scenes without resorting to flash or compromising on your image quality by increasing your ISO to compensate. The powerful IS system is also useful for sports and wildlife photography, equipping you with the convenience of being able to capture tack-sharp images at long focal lengths without requiring the use of a tripod or monopod.
Silky Smooth ‘Pro Cinema’ Style Video Recording
Video shooters can also take advantage of the impressive image stabilisation performance. The Movie IS system delivers ‘pro cinema’ quality stability that normally requires an expensive gyro-stabilised external rig. It equips documentary and run-and-gun style filmmakers with the ability to produce professional slider, dolly and jib style effects handheld, significantly improving their production quality while reducing the amount of equipment and complexity required to achieve a particular shot.
Detail-rich 77Mbps Bit Rate Video Output
The E-M5II also produces 1080/60p Full HD movie clips at a maximum 77Mbps bit rate further bolsters image quality, equipping editors with improved post-processing flexibility and ensuring optimum imaging performance is retained from capture to export.
40 Megapixel Hi-Res Shot Mode
An innovative Hi-Res Shot mode can be used in specific shooting scenarios to capture super-detailed, 40 megapixel images. This is achieved by utilising the IS mechanism in the camera to systematically shift the image sensor by half a pixel to produce 8 shots in sequence. These are composited in-camera to create an image that feature extraordinary colour depth and clarity with significantly reduced moire and colour aberrations. Ideally suited to product photography, still life, architecture and landscape scenarios, the mode can only be used when the camera is mounted on a tripod.
Lightning Fast Autofocus
The camera is also well equipped for general purpose shooting. A 45% improvement in autofocus performance will improve results in all shooting scenarios and equips you with the ability to shoot candid, fleeting moments with confidence.
Silent, Ultra-fast Electronic Shutter
Two shutter options are available with the E-M5II. The first is a traditional mechanical shutter which delivers a 1/8000th shutter speed. This is ideal for sports and fast-action shooting. Additionally, a silent electronic shutter can be utilised at up to 1/16000th second, allowing you to shoot discreetly and utilise large apertures in bright scenarios.
Professional 11fps Burst Mode
A blistering 11fps burst mode complements the lightning fast shutter speeds, ensuring you’re always ready to capture that decisive moment.
Bright, Detailed Electronic View Finder
Framing your images is a joy thanks to the 2.36 million dot high definition electronic viewfinder. Delivering an approximate 100% frame coverage, the EVF features adaptive brightness technology to provide accurate exposure information across a broad range of light sources.
Intuitive, High Resolution Touch Screen LCD
For a more casual shooting experience a 3-inch 1.04 million-dot LCD touchscreen is housed at the rear of the camera. The touch menu interface and intuitive touch-to-focus and touch-to-shoot operation combines pixel-perfect focusing with point-and-shoot simplicity. The vari-angle screen design encourages high and low-angle shooting and can be flipped 180° for perfect self-portraits.
Built-in WiFi with Weather Proof Body
With built-in WiFi and a splash proof, freeze proof and dust proof metal alloy chassis, the Olympus OMD EM5 Mk II is sure to satisfy the creative requirements of your photo and video adventures well into the future.
