Olympus E-M1 Mark II Overview

Pairing the advanced mirrorless body with a versatile zoom, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Mirrorless 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.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Mirrorless Camera

Fast, durable, and versatile, the 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.

Olympus E-M1 Mark II Reviews

Amazing upgrade

By Diana
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-25

To start I am not a pro, and a Nikon user x 25 years. Since the cameras went digital I have been increasingly frustrated with Nikon and finally got this Olympus camera. I needed it for sport action shots. Was I surprised. Since I am not a pro, many of these settings are foreign to me. I WISH that it came with an old school instruction manual .. but it did not. My only complaint. It comes with some preset setting functions which at least allowed me to cold turkey cover a soccer game same day. The color balance, ease of use, silent shutter, and speed of action shots is immense. I still have a lot to learn. 3 exposure for portraits is still difficult to grasp. It is an excellent camera for what it is.

The E-M1 Mark II is a very impressive up-grade from my E-M1

I have been very impressed and pleased with my E-M1, which I have had since 2013, but it didn't have features I wanted. The E-M1 Mark III had more than I needed. The E-M1 Mark II is spot on, and the price at B&H was very reasonable. I am very impressed with the new camera, and highly recommend it.

I was looking for a second body for street shooting as I have been using the miii for over a year. When doing a comparison there was nothing the mii could not do that I would use in my particular shooting as I am not into birding or action photography. The body delivers the promise of. m 4/3 , light to carry, comfortable in your hands, logical customizable controls and excellent IBS. Having been an Oly user for 15 years, I find their menus mostly sensible. At under $1000 the mii surrenders very little to the miii. If you are into sports or birding the mx1 is compelling otherwise putting your savings in the glass you will find amazing full featured m 4/3 that delivers the Olympus promise of great Optical performance in compact, lightweight package.

An excellent Micro 4/3 camera

By Paul

I recently purchased an Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera to replace my old E-M10 Mark II. I chose the Mark II over the newer Mark III because I don't need any of the additional features in the newer model. Key Specifications: 20MP Live MOS sensor 5-axis in-body image stabilization system 121-pt hybrid AF system 60 fps burst shooting (18 fps with C-AF) Fully articulating 3 LCD display High-res electronic viewfinder Cinema (DCI) and UHD 4K video 50MP High-Res Shot mode Weather-sealed body USB 3 (Type-C) Autofocusing even in low light is very good, and I was able to focus down past -4 EVs, with an f/2.8 lens. The Olympus E-M1 II has a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization system, which enables me to take hand-held images with my longer lenses. The Olympus E-M1 Mark II is fully weather-sealed against dust, moisture and freezing temperatures. I tend to shoot in all weather conditions, which is probably the reason my old E-M10 failed. The numerous controls and buttons spread around the body remain large and easy to operate even when wearing thin gloves. I think Olympus understands that a small camera doesn't necessarily need to have small controls. The side-mounted tilt/swivel touchscreen is very useful with odd shooting angles. The articulated design also provides the benefit of entirely flipping around, which provides protection against bumps, smudges or scratches on the large LCD touch screen. The image quality of the Olympus E-M1 Mark II is excellent, showing a lot of sharp, fine detail. Maybe even superior to my old camera. The Olympus lenses also help with image quality. I uploaded an image taken with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. In conclusion: anyone who wants a lightweight camera with great clarity, lots of great features, high-speed shooting and an advanced AF system this is the camera of choice. I highly recommend the Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera.

My second EM-1 II for back-up

By Gary
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-04

The EM-1 II is a marvelous camera despite being 5 years old. I wanted to have a 2nd available as I like the camera so well. It handles superbly and works for me as a lightweight hiking-based landscape and nature photography camera, where I use the 12-40 or 12-45 and the Panasonic 35-100 F2.8 lenses and also sometimes the 8mm F1.8 FE. This very light suite of lenses provides excellent performance but I am now going to own also the Panasonic 50-200 for use in photographing wildlife while hiking and backpacking. Because of very good stabilization I carry no tripod. I use the in camera focus stacking feature very often as I make many botanical images of vascular plants and bryophytes mosses). Because of the ease of focus stacking I find my images of mosses are significantly better than almost all I find on the internet and at professional technical sources. For stacked macro images (60mm), which are usually closer to home, I do use a tripod. I also shoot birds and bees & butterflies where the EM-1 II works very well in S-AF; however the EM-1X is superior for those creatures.

Fits my hand perfectly, it's relatively small and light. It does everything I need it to do, but is, at the moment, $500 cheaper than the Mark III version. I've sold off my EM5 and E-M1 Mark I and have 2 Mark IIs now, and that will probably take care of me for at least 5 years!
