Olympus OM-D E-M1 - A new standard
The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is another high-quality Compact system camera in the exciting Olympus micro four thirds range. This new model is incredibly quick to use from its intuitive menu system which can be operated by the touch panel, to the new phase-detection autofocus, and the continuous shooting. Powered by a new processor, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 is a force to be reckoned with.
Built in Wi-Fi is included in the E-M1 allowing you to explore your options when it comes to image sharing and remote control of your camera.
Like the original OM-D E-M5 before it, the E-M1 features a classically inspired design and weather sealed construction. The OM-D range is the place where the past and future meet, with expertly crafted modern imaging equipment that isn't afraid to borrow from the past.
Phase & Contrast detection AF
One of the most noticeable qualities of the E-M1 is the brilliantly speedy autofocus. Phase-detection and contrast detection autofocus are both utilised, depending on what range of lens is being used - the E-M1 is well equipped to handle anything you throw at it. This best of both worlds technology uses 81 contrast and 37 phase-detection autofocus points.
5-Axis Image Stabilisation
Whether you are shooting stills or taking advantage of the Full HD resolution movie on offer, the E-M1’s stunning 5-axis image stabilisation will be a welcome addition, to say the least. Feel confident to shoot at lower shutter speeds than you previously felt possible and stay out shooting after the sun goes down - this camera will produce sharp pictures, free from motion blur.
Large high-resolution LCD & EVF
In another best of both worlds situation, the E-M1 allows you freedom of composition in the form of a large, tilting, touch-sensitive LCD and a stunningly high resolution live EVF. With 2.36 million dot resolution and 0.74x magnification this EVF is a wonder to look through; whether you are shooting in bright sunshine or a dark interior, the viewfinder will automatically adjust, thanks to adaptive brightness technology.
16 Megapixel Live MOS sensor
With all of the exciting new features that a modern day camera includes, it is easy to overlook the most important function. What do the pictures look like? Needless to say, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 has this area well and truly covered. Thanks to the TruePic VII image processor and 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor the E-M1 captures beautiful, detailed photos in any situation.
