Olympus E-M1 Mark II Overview

  • 1Description

Pairing the advanced mirrorless body with a versatile zoom, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Mirrorless Digital Camera with 12-200mm Lens Kit bundles the Micro Four Thirds camera with the 24-400mm equivalent M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 lens.

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

    Fast, durable, and versatile, the black OM-D E-M1 Mark II from Olympus is a workhorse Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, offering a broad range of stills and video-minded functionality. Revolving around a high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic VIII image processor, the E-M1 Mark II sports a truly fast 60 fps continuous shooting rate with an electronic shutter, 18 fps with continuous autofocus, and 15 fps with a mechanical shutter. For video shooters, both DCI and UHD 4K recording modes can be used, along with a Time-lapse Movie mode for producing in-camera 4K time-lapse sequences. The sensor and processor also avail a top expanded sensitivity of ISO 25600 to support shooting in difficult lighting conditions, and sensor-shift-type 5-axis image stabilization also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, the sensor's design also incorporates 121 on-chip phase-detection points, all of which are cross-type, along with 121 contrast-detection areas for fast and precise focusing and subject tracking performance.

    Complementing the imaging capabilities, the E-M1 Mark II also sports a durable magnesium alloy design that is weather-resistant for working in harsh climates. The body also features both a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and 3.0" 1.04m-dot vari-angle LCD touchscreen for intuitive control and working from a variety of angles. Built-in Wi-Fi further expands sharing and remote shooting capabilities, and dual SD card slots and a USB 3.0 Type C port expand file saving and tethered shooting options.

    20.4MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VIII Image Processor
    A high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic VIII image processor pair to avail notably fast shooting performance, along with impressive image quality, an expanded sensitivity range up to ISO 25600, and 4K video recording capabilities. Ideal for sports and wildlife shooting, the sensor and processor combination avails a full-resolution, raw file continuous shooting rate of 60 fps when working with the silent electronic shutter function and single-shot AF, or 18 fps with continuous autofocus. If working with the mechanical shutter, up to 15 fps with single-shot AF is possible.
    DCI and UHD 4K Video Recording and Time-Lapse Movie Mode
    The sensor and processor also support recording both DCI (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K movies. When working in DCI, a true 24.00 fps frame rate is used, along with IPB compression and a 237 Mbps bit-rate, and UHD 4K is available in frame rates up to 30p and a 102 Mbps bit-rate. Full HD 1080p and HD 720p recording is also supported. Audio recording is possible using the built-in stereo microphone, however both an external mic jack and headphone jack are available for improved audio monitoring.

    In addition to video recording, a Time-lapse Movie mode is also available for recording up to 4K UHD resolution with a 5 fps shooting rate to highlight subject changes or movement over a longer period of time. Full HD and HD time-lapse settings are available, too.
    Pro Capture Mode
    Helping to ensure you don't miss the shot, Pro Capture Mode is a unique setting that starts recording and buffering full-resolution JPEG or raw images prior to fully depressing the shutter. As soon as you press the shutter button halfway, frames will begin to be recorded, and once you fully press the shutter, the image will be saved in addition to the previous 35 frames. Additionally, you can hold the shutter button in this mode to keep shooting continuously using the silent electronic shutter function.
    Dual F.A.S.T. Autofocus and Focus Controls
    A Dual F.A.S.T. autofocus system combines both 121 on-chip phase-detection points and 121 contrast detection areas for focusing performance that is both quick and accurate. All 121 phase-detection points are cross-type, too, for improved precision in mixed lighting conditions, as well as enhanced subject tracking capabilities. A single button can be used to switch between focusing modes, including all point, single point, 9-point group, and 5-point cross, and a Subject Tracking Cluster Display utilized continuous AF for fast-moving subject tracking. In contrast, manual focus users are benefitted by live view magnification and focus peaking controls for greater accuracy.
    5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
    In-body, sensor-shift image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5.5 stops with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements that become especially noticeable when working with telephoto shots, macro imagery, and long exposures. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across five axes to compensate for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shift, and rolling camera shake movement. This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively. Additionally, image stabilization can also be used when framing shots, for more accurate compositions, by half-pressing the shutter button.
    Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
    • High-resolution 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder is available for eye-level monitoring, and an S-OVF (Simulated Optical Viewfinder) mode can be used to expand the live view dynamic range to suit working in bright, contrast-rich lighting.
    • Rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD features a vari-angle design to support working from a variety of angles, as well as making front-facing selfies.
    • Magnesium-alloy body design is hermetically-sealed for resistance against dust and moisture to better enable working in harsh environments, as well as freezing temperatures down to 14°F.
    • The included FL-LM3 external flash is also dust and splashproof to match the camera's resistance to harsh weather.
    • Dual SD memory card slots afford greater flexibility in regard to how files are saved, and also enable a greater overall capacity for longer shooting sessions.
    • USB 3.0 Type-C port avails fast connection and transfer speeds, as well as enables tethered shooting capabilities with Olympus Capture.
    • Built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless image sharing and remote camera control from a linked smartphone or tablet.
    Other Camera Features
    • High Res Shot Mode offers the equivalent output of a 50MP image by combining eight single JPEG frames, which are recorded within one second, into a single, larger image. In between each of the eight exposures, the sensor-shift stabilization mechanism moves slightly in order to acquire more information than in a single exposure and these frames are then composited into a final JPEG with greater resolution and color detail. The TruePic VIII processor aids this process by compensating for any subject movement blur and this feature can also be configured to record 25MP images for file size flexibility.
    • Silent Shutter Mode completely eliminates shutter noise and other electronic sounds to benefit working in nature, concert halls, or other sound-sensitivity locations.
    • Live Bulb and Live Time settings can be used to produce creative long exposure imagery. Live Bulb lets you hold the shutter open for up to one minute and Live Time lets you press the shutter button once to open the shutter and then press again within a minute to end the exposure.
    • Live Composite is a unique long exposure mode that allows you to gradually build up an exposure over time without overexposing key elements within the frame. This mode works to only record newly detected light sources over time, and allows you to watch as an image develops, making it ideally suited for photographing star trails or other moving light sources.
    • Interval shooting is supported for up to 999 frames with 1 second to 24-hour exposure intervals.
    • In-Camera Focus Stacking will automatically record eight images of a subject while shifting the plane of focus slightly, then composite these exposures into a single frame to exhibit an extended depth of field. Alternatively, Focus Bracketing allows you to record between 3-999 frames with adjustable focus steps in a 1-10 range for manual compositing during post-production. These modes are only available when working with M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro, 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO, 30mm f/3.5 Macro, 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO, 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO, and 300mm f/4 IS PRO lenses.
    • Picture Modes: i-Enhance, Vivid, Natural, Muted, Portrait, Monotone, Custom, e Portrait, Underwater, and Art Filters.
    • Fourteen different in-camera Art Filters are available, and include Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Light Color, Light Tone, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama, Cross Process, Gentle Sepia, Dramatic Tone, Key Line, Watercolor, Vintage, and Partial Color, and these modes can be further adjusted through the use of Art Effects, which include a Soft Focus Effect, Pin-Hole Effect, White Edge Effect, Frame Effect, Star Light Effect, Defocus Effect, B&W Effect (Yellow, Orange, Red, and Green), Picture Tone (Sepia, Blue, Purple, and Green), and Shade Effect (Top & Bottom, Left & Right).
    • Keystone Compensation allows you to correct for convergence when working in live view.
    • A multi-exposure mode blends two frames using an auto gain to maintain a controlled exposure value.
    • Language support: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Czech, Dutch, Danish, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Croatian, Slovenian, Hungarian, Greek, Slovakian, Turkish, Latvian, Estonian, Lithuanian, Ukrainian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Rumanian, Indonesian, Malay, and Thai.

  • M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Lens

    A single-lens solution for most shooting situations, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 from Olympus is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and covers a huge 24-400mm equivalent focal length range. Despite its long reach, the lens is also characterized by its portable form factor, close 8.7" minimum focusing distance, and sophisticated optical design, which includes a variety of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements to produce well-corrected imagery. A ZERO coating has also been applied to help reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, this lens utilizes a Movie & Stills Compatible AF system to achieve smooth, fast, and near-silent focusing performance to benefit both photo and movie applications.

    Spanning an impressive wide-angle to super telephoto range, this 12-200mm zoom is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 24-400mm equivalent focal length range.
    Three aspherical elements, one Super HR (high refractive index) elements, and two HR elements are featured in the optical design to limit spherical aberrations for improved sharpness with reduced distortion. Additionally, two Super ED (extra-low dispersion) elements and two ED elements are also used to control chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color fidelity.
    A ZERO (Zuiko Extra-Low Reflection Optical) coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
    Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
    Minimum focusing distance of 8.7" at the wide-angle end, and a 3.9" working distance, offers a 0.46x maximum magnification to suit working with close-up subjects.
    Weather-sealed construction guards the lens against dust and moisture for working in harsh environments.

Olympus E-M1 Mark II Reviews

OM-D E-M1 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-200mm Lens Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius successor to my much beloved E-M1 The new E-M1 Mark II is a more than worthy successor to my still in service E-M1. It is faster, quieter and in many respects easier to use than the original. There have been postings that the menu structure is difficult but I did not find this to be the case. There are certainly more menu items but the menu structure is familiar and presents a very similar submenu navigation. The resolution is noticeably improved as is the noise management. Significantly it also works much better with older Olympus 4/3 lenses than the E-M1did, I have seen no hunting with my 50mm, macro but have not tried it with my mostly retired 70 - 300 4/3 zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Handheld Performance I have photographed professionally for some 25 years and recently switched from Canon APS-C cameras to OM-D E-M1 Mark II for my hand held photography. The sharpness and quality of the images from this camera are equal to my tripod mounted Canon APS-C images. With a few presets, the color matches Canon's beautiful tones and the body can be set up to operate like my Canons - muscle memory is preserved. Better yet, I can capture low light compositions that are impossible with a tripod. On my first outing, I captured now published images at less than 1/3 sec handheld - sharp from foreground to infinity - just unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multipurpose camera! Formal portraits, street, travel, landscape and sport photography; this camera can do everything with confidence! E-M1 Mark II is a feature rich and highly adjustable to your own style without overloading interface with buttons and gimmicks. All features are well thought out. I quickly adapted proshot mode to make nice pictures mid-action for my dancing kids. And I find high resolution mode quite useful for still images. I am looking forward to use live bulb mode for some shots. It is an awesome camera and a nice upgrade to my E-M5 Mark II. I debated camera's rather high price for a while; all doubts disappeared after a day with camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Professional Camera This is the best Micro-4/3 camera I have owned. I own four others, all Panasonics, of various ages. While there is a steep learning curve for its operation, vs the Panasonic cameras, I will get used to it and the rather fussy menu system. I really like the small size of the camera for its professional build quality - it's a tank! The battery lasts a long time. I shoot other equipment including professional Nikon and Hasselblad cameras and lenses. This camera is every bit as professional as the others in my arsenal. While pricey for the sensor size, I feel one gets what one pays for with this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased. Advanced amateur. I have had the mark II for 18 days and have taken 447 photos. I have only used it paired with the 40-150 f2.8 PRO and EX 14 extender. Most photos are birds. This combination is excellent for my use. Focus is very quick and accurate. I also have an E3 and an M1 - the mark II is a significant step up in performance. The similarity of controls with the M1 make the transition easy. The only negative (minor) is proximity of replay button with menu button - I sometimes press menu rather than replay. Overall I am very pleased with the mark II and look forward to using its features.
Date published: 2017-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stabilization a wonder! As others have mentioned the menus are quite complex and different than the 1st gen EM1. However the Super Control Panel has brought in several features that allow you to avoid most of the menus. Settings in the Super Control Panel is an example. I'm disappointed that the ProCapture Mode will only work on OLY lenses. So those looking at or owning the Panasonic/Lumix 100-400 lens will be disappointed. Huge gains in noise reduction, focus speed and stabilization make this a true professional grade camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best OMD To Date I use 4/3 and m4/3 Olympus cameras to compliment my FF Canon system when I need portability and discretion. After more than a decade shooting with E-1, E-3, EM5 I am stunned at how comprehensive the new OMD EM1 mkII is. In a word - OUTSTANDING. PROS: Excellent C-AF tracking S-AF on legacy 4/3 glass excellent Battery life easily 2X other mirrorless 60fps RAW with silent shutter IBIS defies physics especially in video C4K and UHD video has great detail and gradation with high-bitrate CONS: Doesn't make sandwiches After two weeks with the EM1 mkII I'm questioning the need to maintain two systems. The EM1 mkII does everything well and truly excels in some areas (ergonomics, build quality, speed, IBIS). Combined with the numerous 4/3 and m4/3 lens options, it really is a powerhouse.
Date published: 2017-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features and performance on a higher level. I'm shooting Olympus for 16 years. Finally I feel like the Mark II is a better camera than Nikon/Cannon. I shot my 90 to 250 F2.8 4/3rds with a 2X adaptor (35mm = 1,000mm @ F5.6) at 1/60 sec hand held without issues. I am not aware of any other camera that could do this. I used the pro-capture feature that captures 18 shots per second before the shutter release is pushed to capture images I would have missed. Also the electronic shutter option is completely silent. Generally the camera is just lightning fast. There are too many new features to review. Check out the youtube videos.

question

Hello, i was wandering if a minimum shutter speed can be set while in auto ISO and if so what are the limits (lower and upper)? Thanks
Asked by: Paul L.
There are actually two different areas to set the lowest shutter speed, one in Auto ISO and the other when using flash. Menu E1 ISO-Auto Set allows you to set the Auto ISO range (200-6400) and the Lowest S/S Setting (Auto/off or selectable from 30 to 1/8000) for P and Av modes. The camera will keep your specified minimum shutter speed up to your max specified ISO, but once there it will decrease the shutter speed to obtain the correct exposure. So the max ISO is a hard limit and the shutter speed is more of a soft limit.The second place you can set this is on the Flash menu (F) where you can choose the X-sync (1/60 - 1/250) and the slow (lowest s/s) limit when using flash (30 to 1/250).

question

I have the M5 Mark II. Can I use the same batteries if I purchase the M1? I'm assuming all my Zuiko lenses are compatible.
Asked by: Joan
The Olympus BLN-1 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery is compatible for use with both the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera and the original Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera. It is not compatible with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera, which uses the Olympus BLH-1 Lithium-Ion Battery.All Olympus M.Zuiko lenses or third-party lenses designed for the Micro Four Thirds lens mount would equally be compatible with the original Olympus OM-D E-M1, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, and the OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Cameras.

question

Is the video C-AF-TR improved in the E-M1 Mark II compared to the E-M1? With the E-M1, the little AF tracking green box often will slip/jump off the subject and lock onto something in the background when shooting run & gun videos of a person (for example, both the subject and the photographer are walking around while shooting the video).

question

When shooting 4K DCI at 24fps, and using an Olympus 12-10mm f/4 Sync II generation lens, does the IBIS function at a full 5-axis level, or does it downgrade to 3-axis IBIS ?
Asked by: Daria L.
We are not aware of any specific downgrade to the camera's IBIS capabilities depending on the lens it uses.
