The black Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera combines a 16MP Live MOS sensor with a TruePic VII Image Processor for increased performance speed and reduced noise throughout the ISO range as compared to TruePic VI. The Mark II also improves upon its predecessor by utilizing a 5-axis VCM Image Stabilization that provides up to 5 stops of compensation. Full HD 1080p video recording is now available on the Mark II with a higher bitrate of up to 77 Mb/s and various codecs. Built into the E-M5 Mark II is a unique feature that utilizes sensor shift to produce a 40MP image by combining 8 images in-camera.

The camera's fully articulated 3" touchscreen LCD monitor makes taking self portraits easy, and the built-in WiFi lets you quickly share your images. When not using the LDC monitor for live view, the 2,360k-dot EVF provides a virtually lag-free view with a 1.48x magnification.

Superior Image Quality

The Olympus E-M5 Mark II uses a 16-megapixel High-Speed Live MOS Sensor offering improved performance and exceptional clarity and speed in all aspects of image capture. Olympus' TruePic VII image-processing engine improves image quality in low-light environments. The camera's sensor allows for a maximum ISO of 25,600, and the dynamic range has been expanded for more faithful color reproduction.

5-Axis Image Stabilization

The ultra-sensitive 5-axis VCM (voice coil motor) employs updated gyro sensors for a full 5 exposure steps of compensation. The E-M5 Mark II delivers sharp, clear still images in low light or steady HD video when capturing movies.

Intuitively Designed Electronic Viewfinder

The camera's electronic viewfinder has an eye sensor to seamlessly switch the display between the tilting 3.0" touch screen OLED and the electronic viewfinder for ease-of-use. Camera setting information, such as shutter speed, is displayed at the bottom of the viewfinder so photographers can concentrate on framing shots and take full advantage of an EVF's ability to display the effects of various exposure adjustments and Art Filter effects - all without having to take the eye away from the viewfinder

Additional Features

Interactive, high-resolution and high-magnification electronic viewfinder. 3" touch-screen LCD monitor, with variable angle positioning. Built-in Wi-Fi for instant connectivity. Live Composite, which automatically blends multiple exposures for incredibly detailed night scenes, and compatibility with Olympus Capture camera control software, which creates a seamless interface between camera and computer for studio work.

Weather Resistance

The magnesium alloy body is sealed to help protect against dust and liquid. The camera can operate in cold-weather conditions down to 14°F.

I have always bought Nikon. I have A Nikon d5500 now. How does this compare to it?
Asked by: Lisa
There are many things that set these two cameras apart, with the physical size of the body/lenses and the sensor size being the main differences. The D5500 would have a larger APS-C sensor, while the OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a Micro 4/3 sensor. Other minor differences would be that the OM-D E-M5 Mark II has built in image stabilization, a sensor shift function that will give you a single 40 MP image by combining 8 images and an electronic viewfinder, all of which the D5500 would lack. We invite you to contact us directly via Live Chat so we can go over your options in greater detail.

Are you able to change the shutter speed to angle ...

Are you able to change the shutter speed to angle for a full 180 degree shutter? If not, are you able to set the shutter speed to 1/48?
Asked by: Norman
Since this is not a film movie camera and is a digital still camera that can do video, no, there is no shutter angle setting nor is there a 1/48th of a second shutter speed.

question

I have the E-M5 Mark I. It requires you to set the custom white balance using a white sheet of paper, unlike other cameras I have which read a very small rectangle such as from a pocket WhiBal card. Does the Mark II still require the white sheet of paper?
Asked by: John
Hi,a white piece of paper or a calibrated white balance card is always required to set up a custom white balance ( that is a white balance specific to the lighting condition you are working with) Using one or the other is entirely your preference as a photographer independently of the camera. So yes the OM D 5MarkII does recommend a white piece of paper or an appropriate card.

question

Is it compatible with the older Zuiko digital 4/3 lenses from a E-500 series?
Asked by: Michael M.
Yes, but you will need an adapter. Either the Panasonic DMW-MA1 or the Olympus MMF-3 should work.
