  • Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Black, Body Only)

    The black Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera is a compact, ergonomically designed camera featuring a 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and high-speed performance. The combination of these two technologies enables a high sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600 and also contributes to a top 1/8000 sec. shutter speed and continuous shooting up to 10 fps. The sensor also lends itself to an enhanced FAST autofocus system that utilizes dual contrast- and on-chip phase-detection focusing methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus with selectable focus areas for even greater precision.

    Also benefitting image sharpness is in-body 5-axis image stabilization that compensates for vertical, horizontal, and rolling camera shake. IS-Auto mode can also be employed, which intelligently detect both vertical and horizontal panning and disengages image stabilization along the detected axes to provide stabilization when photographing moving subjects.

    Both a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and tilting touchscreen monitor are available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation. The interactive EVF features a 2,360k-dot resolution and 1.48x magnification for comfortable eye-level viewing with the ability to preview image effects in real-time. Alternatively, the 3.0" 1,037k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD monitor can tilt upward 80° or downward 50° to suit working from high and low angles and its touchscreen design provides an intuitive means for controlling settings and navigating through the menu system. Both of these viewing mechanisms are housed within the ruggedly-designed dust-, splash-, and freezeproof magnesium alloy body. A large grip is integrated into the construction to provide a comfortable means for handling the camera and also facilitates more efficient control over a wide range of camera settings. Additionally, the incorporation of an X-sync socket, HDMI port, external microphone jack, and hot shoe also add to the E-M1's overall functionality.

    For refined off-board control and image sharing, built-in wireless connectivity is available and, when paired with the Olympus O.I. Share app for iOS and Android mobile devices, remote sharing and control over the camera is possible. QR Code Connect provides a simple, seamless way of linking mobile devices to the camera and the option of utilizing a smartphone to embed locational data into the image files for geotagging is also supported.

    16.3MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VII Image Processor
    The 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work in concert to enable high resolution still imagery, full HD video recording, and notable low-light quality sensitivity to ISO 25600. The combination of these two technologies also helps to promote high-speed performance throughout the camera system, including a top shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. with a mechanical shutter, a continuous shooting rate up to 10 fps with Tracking AF, and continuous 6 fps shooting with continuous autofocus.

    Additionally, full HD 1080p movie recording is supported at 30 fps with stereo sound in either the MOV or AVI format. A Direct HD Movie Button is available for instant access to movie recording and a range of Art Filters and effects can be applied while recording for more creative control. An external microphone jack is also available to enhance the quality of sound during recordings.
    FAST Dual Phase- and Contrast-Detection AF
    The sensor also affords dual-mode auto focusing that utilizes both contrast- and on-sensor phase-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus. The contrast-detection system employs 81 areas while the phase-detection method uses 37 areas and, when combined, make the FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) focusing system that is able to reap the benefits from both technologies to produce all-around focusing that is equally fast as it is precise. Four different AF area sizes can be used, too, with the smallest, Super Spot AF, enabling pin-point precision that is well-suited to macro and close-up imagery. Selectable 3 x 3 groups within the 81 areas in contrast-detection can also be paired according to the subject type being photographed and a 0.044 second focus lag time ensures quick focusing for moving subjects.
    5-Axis Image Stabilization
    In-body image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements up to the equivalent of five shutter speed steps. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across five axes, versus the conventional two axes, and compensates for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shift, and rolling camera shake movements. This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively. Furthering the effectiveness of the 5-Axis IS, IS-Auto mode is available to detect both vertical and horizontal panning to automatically deactivate image stabilization along the detected panning axis to enable greater stability when tracking moving subjects.
    Interactive EVF and 3.0" Tilting Touchscreen
    For eye-level viewing, a bright 2,360k-dot electronic viewfinder is integrated into the design and features a smart eye detect function, 29ms image display lag time, and 1.48x magnification. This finder enables realistic, high resolution viewing in a comfortable position that is especially beneficial when working in bright conditions. The viewfinder also allows for real-time visualization of different camera settings, including aspect ratio, highlight and shadow, and magnification. The adaptive brightness settings also enable easier viewing in different lighting conditions, with the brightness being set according to surrounding conditions to better simulate the use of an optical viewfinder.

    In addition to the viewfinder, a large 3.0" 1,037k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD monitor is also available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation. The monitor's design can tilt 80° upward and 50° downward, making it well-suited to use from both high and low angles. The intuitive touchscreen control offers a range of additional functionality, too, including the ability to touch to release the shutter, select the focusing point, magnify the image, apply filter effects, and navigate through images and settings.
    Body Design
    Constructed from magnesium alloy, the E-M1 features a dust-, splash-, and freezeproof design that enables full-functionality in adverse conditions. The rugged metal body is also designed to be as lightweight and ergonomic as possible to support comfortable use for long shooting durations.

    The body is also designed to provide the most intuitive and efficient control over crucial camera settings. Eight customizable 'direct buttons' are available and can control a range of settings simply by pressing the designated button and rotating the main or sub dials. A locking mode dial is also incorporated into the large ergonomic grip and 2 x 2 dial control provides enhanced manipulation over exposure settings through the use of two dials and a function lever. Also integrated into the body's design is an X-sync socket for direct linking of external strobes; an HDMI output for connection to an HDTV for high-quality photo and movie playback; and USB and component video connections are available, too. A proprietary accessory port and hot shoe are available as well for connecting external flashes, the Olympus PENPAL, and MAL-1 Macro Light.
    Built-In Wireless Connectivity
    By using the O.I. Share app, wireless control of the E-M1 is possible through using linked iOS and Android mobile devices. The mobile device can be used to preview compositions, choose a specific AF point, and release the shutter via the intuitive app interface. The self-timer can also be set and access privileges can be given for others to download select images directly from the camera. Linking of mobile devices to the camera is possible through an intuitive QR Code Connect system, which displays a unique QR code on the camera's monitor which can then be recognized by a mobile device for instant linking. Additionally, smartphones can be used to embed GPS information into image files' metadata for geotagging applications, which can then be plotted to interactive maps through Olympus Viewer 3 or other applications supporting GPS log data.
