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 magni cation electronic view nder 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 Magni ed 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.
For photographers who prefer composing their shots using an eye-level view nder, the OM-D E-M1 will be a revelation. The interactive high-definition EVF features a 2.36 million dot resolution, an impressive 1.48x magnification, eye sensor for automatic switching between the EVF and monitor and intuitive functionality for real-time viewing of any shooting situation. You can control settings such as Aspect Ratio, Highlight and Shadow, Magni cation and more without your eye leaving the
view finder. With a display time lag of 0.0029 seconds, tracking of moving subjects is completely natural. Check what finished images will look like simply by looking through the EVF. Adaptive brightness technology raises the brightness when shooting in bright outdoor conditions and lowers the brightness in dark indoor conditions, reducing visual errors from light and dark adaptation of the eye. The backlight brightness is automatically adjusted in response to changes in ambient lighting to
maintain the proper brightness.
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. It's perfect for tripod shooting and self-portraits. Add geotags to your photos by sending the high-precision GPS log data recorded by OI. Share to your camera.
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. Twelve in-camera Art Filters are enhanced by new lter variations, art effects and bracketing. You can use Art Filters in all shooting modes as well as while lming 1080 HD movies. Interval shooting allows
1-999 shots, in 1-second to 24-hour time intervals to easily shoot a series of pictures and convert them into a time-lapse movie. Additional features let you create a photo story or quickly view multiple pictures as a slideshow with just one touch.
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. It's highly effective when taking high-magni cation telephoto shots, macro close-ups, and long exposures. It can be activated by pressing the shutter button halfway, to stabilize the view finder or LCD image and obtain a crisp, clear view of your subject - making it easy to frame and compose your shots. 5-Axis IS even makes stable movies possible.
COMPLETE CONTROL AND FUNCTIONALITY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. INSTANTLY.
Instantly change key camera settings on the f;y 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. The 2x2 Dial Control with Function Lever gives you the ultimate control, allowing direct access to aperture/shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO settings and white balance - directly by dial. These extra features make the OM-D E-M1 signi cantly more than the sum of its parts.
