The technical details behind this camera
The OM-D E-M1 Mark II possesses high-speed performance that cannot be imitated. By developing the 20M Live MOS sensor together with the TruePic VIII image processor, not only has image quality exponentially improved from past OM-D models, but high speed performance of 18 fps in AF/AE tracking and 60 fps in AE/AF lock have been realised. The electronic viewfinder provides smooth and fast display at a 120-fps frame rate and a 0.005-second display time lag, so you will never miss a shot. These cutting-edge technologies are packed into a compact, lightweight, and weather-resistant body, allowing you to shoot beautiful images in the most brutal environments. In addition to all of the functions the camera comes with, firmware updates will become available to further enhance photographic performance and keep your E-M1 Mark II in the best condition possible. Ready whatever the occasion
The E-M1 Mark II supports digital cinema standards like 4K (4096 x 2160), a 24P frame rate, and a 237 Mbps bit rate, for authentic video production. The E-M1 Mark II is equipped with Silent Mode, which disables shutter sounds and electronic sounds for silent shooting. This feature is useful for concerts and other events where sounds are inappropriate. Focus stacking captures 8 photos of slightly different focus and then automatically merges them for a single photo in focus from the foreground to background. In focus bracketing mode, the focal location is shifted slightly with each shutter activation for up to 999 shots. You can select from 10 levels of focus shift. New ways of photography
Create photos that look like they belong in an encyclopedia by using photo software to composite images. Live Composite records only those areas that are newly bright, thus avoiding over-exposure which may occur with conventional bulb shooting. This feature allows the capture of beautiful nightscapes with star trails or fireworks in the background and buildings in the foreground. As with Live Bulb, you can confirm the progress of your shot on the rear monitor. Moreover, you can also use the flash to emphasise a moment during the exposure or a pen light to write letters. A maximum exposure of up to 3 hours is possible. Live Bulb & Live Time functions updates the display during exposure at a set interval. You can choose from two modes, Live Bulb that opens the shutter while the shutter button is pressed and Live Time that opens the shutter on the first push and closes it on the second push of the shutter button. While in Live Bulb mode, the screen displays the exposure time and a histogramme. When the Bulb/Time shooting mode is selected, the backlight is automatically dimmed to reduce the power consumption and brightness. The Olympus Capture tethering software was developed based on the requests of professional photographers, and can be extremely useful for studio photography. The new TruePic VIII image processor and USB 3.0 compatibility provides for transfer speed from the E-M1 Mark II that is four times faster than its successor. Olympus Capture Ver. 1.2 supports the E-M1 Mark II’s 121-point AF area and dual card slots. Top three Reasons we think you will love this camera
Our expert’s opinion
- Staggering continuous shooting rate
- Focus stacking
- Durable and versatile
This is one powerful Micro Four Thirds camera, able to meet nearly all of your stills and video needs. The shooting rate is staggering, and the construction of the camera robust and able to stand up to the elements. The sensor-shift-type five-axis image stabilisation produces sharp images without a tripod. You can record video in 4K, and for stills with the Pro Capture Mode you should never miss the shot. The Focus Stacking, Live Composite and High Res Shot modes expand what would usually be possible. It’s nice and light too. Why Camera House?
