THE WORLD’S MOST ADVANCED IMAGE STABILIZATION
The new OM-D E-M5 Mark II features the most sophisticated image stabilization technology ever offered in an interchangeable lens camera.* The ultra-sensitive 5-axis VCM (voice coil motor) system is so responsive and accurate, you can shoot sharp images in low light and capture silky smooth video, hand-held without a tripod. And because the IS system is in the body of the camera, you’ll get blur-free results regardless of which lens you use.
*Based on compensation performance equivalent to 5 shutter speed steps as of February 5, 2015
SERIOUS VIDEO MADE SIMPLE
Forget about obtrusive rigs that make shooting movies a production. The E-M5 Mark II’s compact size and 5-axis image stabilization make it ideal for hand-held video. Pro-level features include high bit rate recording, variable frame rate, and focusing peaking while filming, and the new “Flat Color Movie” mode introduced in Firmware 2.0. The E-M5 Mark II also features a 270° vari-angle LCD screen with an all-new robust touch screen interface for easy adjustments to AF point, exposure, aperture, shutter speed and more without interrupting recording.
FULLY PROOFED & PORTABLE
At nearly 40% lighter than conventional DSLRs, the bring-it-anywhere E-M5 Mark II is a highly accomplished ergonomic photographic tool whose shape and materials were chosen to keep the body slim but easy to shoot with all day. Plus, its all metal body is sealed for splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof protection. With a full array of similarly “proofed” accessories, including the bundled FL-LM3 swivel bounce flash and an optional powered battery grip as well as nine* M.Zuiko Digital weather-sealed lenses, you’ll be ready to shoot in the most extreme environments.
