STAY ON THE LEADING EDGE OF THE IMAGING TECHNOLOGY CURVE WITH THE NEW OM-D E-M1.
It embodies the revolutionary design elements that will send your imagination into overdrive – at warp speed. Full magnesium alloy body construction, an intuitive control layout with customizable direct control buttons, an interactive, “best in class” large, easy-to-view, 1.48x magnification electronic viewfinder and In-Body 5-Axis Image Stabilization that compensates for vertical, horizontal and rotational camera shake, combine to create one extraordinary photographic tool for professionals and serious photo enthusiasts alike. The OM-D E-M1 is the flagship Micro Four Thirds camera system in the OM line that’s as adventurous, imaginative, creative, fast and revolutionary as you are. So you can take amazing pictures from anywhere, anytime, under any conditions.
NEED INCREDIBLE SPEED?
With the 16 MP Live MOS Image Sensor, the OM-D E-M1 automatically switches between Contrast Detection AF or Phase Detection AF to deliver blazing fast autofocus speeds – no matter which Olympus Zuiko lens you use to get the shot. All Olympus lenses – from the super-quiet MSC Micro Four Thirds lenses to the renowned SWD Four Thirds lenses work seamlessly and to their full potential when paired with the OM-D E-M1.
The exclusive Olympus FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF System focuses at an astonishing speed and offers 37 AF targets located in the on-chip phase detection AF method, which enables automatic selection when a Four Thirds lens is attached. When a lens is attached that is Micro Four Thirds, the Contrast AF method is automatically selected. In contrast, AF points have been expanded from 35 to 81. Out of these 81 points, 37 of them are in the same position as Phase Detection AF. In addition to Small Target and Group Target, Super Spot AF can be selected, enabling selection of an even smaller AF point area.
The heart of the OM-D E-M1 is the TruePic VII image processor designed for maximum performance and function speed. It uses information communicated from the lens (such as aperture value and lens optical characteristics) to optimize the image. Fine Detail II technology corrects for chromatic aberration individually for each Zuiko Digital lens and applies the right amount of sharpening.
The OM-D E-M1 has a 1/8000 second high-speed mechanical shutter, allowing you to freeze quick-moving action without blurring. Use prime lenses at their maximum aperture to capture beautifully defocused background images in bright daylight. Take high-speed sequential shots as fast as 10fps with the Tracking AF (C-AF+Tr), which works in tandem with the Autofocus to follow your subject. High-speed sequential shooting is available with a maximum frame when using autofocus tracking of 6.5fps, approximately 504 shots in RAW (continuous shooting time of approximately 9 seconds). At S-AF sequential shooting, a max high- speed sequential shooting frame rate of 10fps, and approximately 41 shots in RAW, is available.
PART OF A COMPLETE AND VERSATILE SYSTEM.
There are over 57 fully compatible lenses available for the OM-D E-M1, including 32 Olympus Zuiko Digital and M.Zuiko Digital lenses plus dozens of others from Four Thirds consortium members. Features such as Focus Peaking and Magnified Focus Assist let you use your favorite OM lens with the appropriate adapter for beautiful results. The OM-D E-M1 is surrounded by a system of accessories to customize your individual photographic pursuits. You’ll find a dedicated battery holder grip, wirelessly controlled ashes, a dedicated “mic in” for external microphone options – even a specially-designed underwater housing.
REVOLUTIONARY BY DESIGN.
The OM-D E-M1 is built around the Micro Four Thirds standard, making it smaller, lighter and more portable. Pack light and pack more lenses on your important photo outings. Shoot all day without lugging around a heavy, outdated system.
DUSTPROOF, SPLASHPROOF, FREEZEPROOF – AND OTHER POWERFUL TOUCHES.
Trouble-free shooting in all environments is assured by Olympus proven seals that protect the camera from sand, dust, rain, ice and water spray. The tough magnesium body makes the OM-D E-M1 ideal for rugged outdoor photography. The OM-D E-M1’s tilting touch screen reacts quickly with the slightest touch. The display makes focusing, choosing AF points, capturing a picture, changing camera settings, releasing the shutter or navigating controls effortless.
WIFI? IT’S BUILT IN.
Get connected instantly, and take control of your OM-D E-M1, without touching it. With the “QR Code Connect” you take a shot of the QR code on the camera’s LCD monitor with your smartphone and presto! Your smartphone and camera are synced instantly. Using the Olympus OI.Share smartphone app you can preview your composition, choose the AF point and release the shutter.
CREATIVITY IS BUILT IN TOO.
The OM-D E-M1 leaves nothing to the imagination (except for yours). A Color Creator feature lets you adjust Hue and Chroma right in the EVF and preview the effect in “real time”. Color manipulation that was difficult to imagine is now possible, enabling you to capture shots that perfectly match your imagination. HDR Preview emulates the HDR effect in the EVF before the camera processes the image.
SERIOUSLY ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR SERIOUS SHOOTERS.
The OM-D E-M1 is equipped with a 5-Axis Image Stabilization System with IS-Auto. 5-Axis IS compensates for vertical, horizontal and rotational camera shake that conventional 2-axis systems could not. The IS-Auto mode detects both vertical and horizontal panning and automatically deactivates image stabilization on the panning axis, so you can take spectacular panning photos of objects such as a speeding car. 5-Axis IS is built into the camera body to ensure stabilization with all lenses.
COMPLETE CONTROL AND FUNCTIONALITY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. INSTANTLY.
Instantly change key camera settings on the fly with 8 customizable “direct buttons.” Press the direct button and rotate the main or sub dial to quickly adjust to changing photo opportunities. A “function lever” lets you change the assignment of a button without going deep into set up menus. The OM-D E-M1 has a locking mode dial – a must-have feature for serious shooters. External connections include a new built-in X-Sync Socket for easy connection to studio strobes, and HDMI output for photo and video playback on your DDTV.
