Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Body - Black

Olympus introduces an exceptional high-resolution still and advanced motion picture hybrid with the new OM-D E-M5 Mark II®. This advanced interchangeable-lens camera features a compact dustproof, splashproof body, with a familiar, premium design.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Body - Black

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II interchangeable-lens camera features a compact dustproof, splashproof body, with a premium design. Packed with 5-axis image stabilization, a 40-megapixel high-resolution shot mode, HD video, Wi-Fi® and a variable-angle 3-inch touchscreen. The 2.36 million dot, super-large, electronic viewfinder has a field of view of 100%, and a viewfinder magnification of 1.48x. The camera is equipped with Adaptive Brightness Technology, which automatically adjusts the backlight brightness.

Exceptional Performance
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II pairs a redesigned 16-megapixel Live-MOS Micro Four Thirds® sensor with the Olympus TruePic™ VII processor, enabling brilliant image quality in bright and low-light conditions alike. The 1/8000 mechanical shutter allows photographers to shoot using a large aperture for maximum bokeh. Users can capture RAW images at up to 10 fps with S-AF, or 5 fps with C-AF tracking enabled. An Anti-shock mode utilizes electronic first-curtain shutter to reduce shutter shock during sequential shooting. The 81-point Fast AF provides an expanded focus area, with unparalleled speed, while Small Target AF allows users to focus on small areas across the entire frame.

World’s Most Sophisticated Image Stabilization
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II’s in-body 5-axis VCM image stabilization system offers unprecedented performance. The camera’s 16-megapixel sensor shifts horizontally, vertically and on the X (pitch), Y (yaw) and Z (roll) axes in order to provide 5.0 EV steps of compensation performance. It can capture sharp images at shutter speeds as low as 1/4-second. Sensor shift on the X and Y axes can also assist when photographing close-up subjects. Image stabilization extends to the 3-inch, 1.04M-dot rear vari-angle touchscreen and the 2.36M-dot electronic viewfinder (1.48x magnification), providing a full image stabilization preview when the shutter button is pressed halfway.

40-Megpixel High-Resolution Shot
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II takes high-resolution imaging to a whole new level. In addition to the exceptional 16-megapixel stills you’ve come to expect from OM-D, the E-M5 Mark II captures 40-megapixel images. The 40-Megapixel High-Res Shot mode captures eight sequential images, moving the sensor by 0.5-pixel steps between each shot. Then, the E-M5 Mark II compiles those images to produce a super-high resolution shot.

OM-D Movie
The OM-D E-M5 Mark II’s advanced video features like the 5-axis image stabilization compensates for even the slightest movement, allowing the camera to capture stable footage. The mechanical IS unit can also work in concert with Electronic Stabilization if desired.

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II captures 1080p video at up to a 60p frame rate with up to 77 Mbps high bit-rate recording possible at the 30p setting. Additionally, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II supports 50p, 30p (29.97p), 25p and 24p (23.98p) frame rates, making it easy to blend footage captured using other camera systems. Focus Peaking with four color choices (red, yellow, black and white) as well as three selectable intensities for optimal manual focus results.

Ultimate Connectivity
The OM-D E-M5 Mark II includes Wi-Fi using the Olympus Image Share app on a smartphone or tablet.

Portability and Build
The OM-D E-M5 Mark II features a dustproof, splashproof body, that when paired with select M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses, can be used in the rain. Olympus’ Supersonic Wave Filter technology uses super high speed frequency movement to “shake” any dust or debris off the sensor, eliminating dust. The camera includes machined metal dials, an extended grip that makes the OM-D E-M5 Mark II comfortable to hold. The camera (body only) weighs just 417 grams, or 14.7 ounces, making it one of the lightest models in its class. 

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II includes a dustproof and splashproof bundled flash, the FL-LM3, with Guide Number 9 (at ISO 100).

The PT-EP13 Dedicated Underwater Case can be used at depths of up to 45 meters, and is designed specifically for the OM-D E-M5 Mark II. The case is equipped with a pick-up viewfinder and can be used with the cameras bundled FL-LM3 flash, along with a variety of lenses.
