Fast, Accurate Dual Autofocus
The high-speed autofocus built into the E-M1 Mark II captures split-second moments with precision and ease. Its Dual FAST AF system boasts an outstanding 121 points of On-Chip Phase Detection plus Contrast Detection AF. Every point of On-Chip Phase Detection is cross-type, facilitating detection of vertical and horizontal lines for superior accuracy. Four AF Target Modes – All Point, Single Point, 9-Point Group, and 5-Point Cross – can be easily switched with a single button press. Plus, the new Subject Tracking Cluster Display lets you easily focus on moving subjects using the camera’s C-AF Tracking.
Outstanding Image Quality
With a 20MP Live MOS Sensor, the OM-D EM-1 delivers rich gradations and excellent image quality. Its anti-reflective AR Coating reduces flare on the sensor, and the 50MP High Res Shot mode combines 8 shots to generate a single ultra-high resolution image. The TruePic™ VIII Image Processor works alongside the double quad-core system to power the blazing sequential shooting and autofocus speeds. 4K (3840x2160) and C4K (4096x2160) video can be captured with a maximum bit rate of 237Mbps. A 5-axis Image Stabilisation system provides up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation for shake-free shooting.
The E-M1 Mark II’s Pro Capture Mode ensures that you catch the exact moment you want without any lag. Pro Capture starts taking and buffering a running series of full resolution JPEG / RAW images as soon as you press the shutter release button halfway. Fully press the shutter button to instantly record an image plus up to 14 previous frames. Keep the shutter button fully depressed to continue shooting.
Whether you’re taking to the streets, traveling the world, or working in the studio, the E-M1 Mark II is built to keep you capturing great shots without worrying about your gear. It's designed to be compact and lightweight, providing easy handheld shooting with more freedom.The metal body is hermetically sealed to be splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C), so you can take advantage of every photo opportunity. The new high-capacity Li-Ion battery enables more shots on single charge plus requires significantly less charging time. And the dual card slots make it easy to backup and manage your image files.
Advanced Imaging Tools
Silent Shutter Mode completely eliminates shutter noise and all electronic sounds, perfect for wildlife, concert halls, or other quiet environments. With the Live Composite and Live Bulb Modes, you’ll shoot beautiful nighttime compositions as you watch the image build up on the monitor, giving you full freedom of exposure adjustment. For incredible macro shots, Focus Bracketing and Stacking lets you take several photos of a subject and then stack them into a single image with edge-to-edge clarity. Olympus Capture provides seamless tethered shooting through the USB 3.0 Type C port.
