OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 - Overview

High Resolution Digital Viewfinder

The integrated 1.44 megapixel Digital Viewfinder features advanced aspherical optics, 18mm eyepoint and a 100% field of view. The Olympus E-M5 immerses the you fully into the creative process through a genuine WYSIWYG experience.

Exposure, colour and filter effects are seen live, not after the picture has been taken. Built-in diopter adjustable.

World's Most Advanced Image Stabiliser

The E-M5's groundbreaking 5-axis stabilisation system provides near foolproof shake compensation, counteracting pitch, yaw, roll, and horizontal and vertical translational movements. This new system has a maximum -5 EV stabilisation capability. It also has the ability to show a Live image-stabilised view and is effective for both stills and video shooting. The body-integrated nature of the system means that all lenses used with the camera are stabilised, eliminating the need for costly specialised lenses. Even heritage manual focus lenses that are non-electronically coupled can benefit from stabilisation.

Full HD video with Multi-motion image stabilisation

The E-M5 captures broadcast quality video in Linear PCM stereo sound. Rolling shutter effects are virtually eliminated ensuring the video capture quality is aberration free. Combined with the world's most effective stabilisation system, the E-M5 delivers a truly unique video capturing experience for casual and enthusiast videographers.

9 frames per second sequential shooting rate

High readout speeds and extremely quick image processing enables the E-M5 the ability to shoot sequentially up to a speed of nine frames per second. Capture all the action whether it is the fastest of sports or the quickest of wildlife. Combined with the world's fastest focusing system, the E-M5 is a camera that can keep up with your fast paced needs.
