Olympus O-MD

A New Era In Micro Four Thirds Technology

In 1973, Olympus introduced the legendary OM-1. In 2012, Olympus has introduced the OM-D E-M5. This new, revolutionary mirrorless camera, has an exceptionally light and compact body. Its Electronic View Finder enables photographers to check exposure levels, white balance and preview Art Filter effects in real-time. When shooting, the photographer can instantly “create” a truly unique world and preserve it in exceptional quality. The “world” will be transformed from something you see to something you “take part” in.

Trouble-free shooting in all environments is assured by our proven dust-proof and splash-proof technology. Multiple ring-shaped seals protect the camera from sand, dust, rain, and water spray, making it ideal for all kinds of outdoor shooting. What’s more, the OM-D extends this protection to the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ lens, the bundled detachable flash unit, and the optional grip and power battery holder.

SUPERIOR IMAGE QUALITY

Three key factors contribute to the OM-D’s unprecedented image quality: a wide lineup of M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses for sharp, clear subject capture, a new 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor for rich tonal expression, and an advanced TruePic VI image processor for superb color fidelity.

Built into the camera body, the world's first 5-axis image stabilization system can compensate for vertical, horizontal, and rotational camera shake that conventional 2-axis systems of the past have been unable to handle. This unique 5-axis design makes it particularly effective when taking high-magnification telephoto shots, macro close-ups, and long exposures.

BLAZING SPEED

The world’s fastest* autofocusing system, FAST AF, has been made even faster and more accurate on the OM-D. Improved new 3D Tracking AF assures you won’t miss the moment even when subjects move toward or away from you. In addition, the new high-sensitivity image sensor ensures superior AF performance even in dim light.

Thanks to the new 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor’s high-speed read-out performance, the OM-D offers maximum sequential shooting at 9.0 fps, making it easy to capture sports action or fast-moving subjects.

In addition to offering dial and button controls, the E-M5 is the first Olympus camera to feature a tilting touchscreen monitor for intuitive fingertip operation. Get creative with 11 Art Filters that can be applied to both still photos and HD movies right in the camera. Apply these filters instantly while shooting or apply post capture.
