Olympus Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the OM-D E-M10 Mark II compact system camera that conforms to the Micro Four Thirds System standard. This camera is equipped with 5-axis image stabilization that certainly compensates camera shakes in any scene.
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is the successor model to the OM-D E-M10 that went on sale February 2014. On the stylish and easy to use compact body, it includes a powerful in-body 5-axis VCM image stabilization inherited from the high-end OM-D series, a first for an entry-level Interchangeable Lens Camera (ILC). This model provides stable, blur-free, high-quality images in any scene, from daily events to night scenes, and macro photography.
■5-axis image stabilization that provides blur-free, high-quality images at any time
This image stabilization is not only available for still images, but is fully effective for recording movies as well. Because this feature compensates for vibration that occurs while walking and slight movements that result from pressing buttons, you can capture movement smoothly even with a single hand. The OM-D Movie, popular on the E-M5 Mark II for capturing high-quality movies can also be enjoyed on this model.
■User friendly, stylish, compact design
One of the advantages of compact system cameras is their remarkably small size when compared to entry-level SLR models. They don’t take up space, making them very easy to take along anywhere.
The design incorporates the classic style found on Olympus interchangeable lens camera. Not only on the camera body, but the metal dials along with the leather textures of the grip produce a highly sophisticated feel to the camera.
The dial and button shapes and layout have been adjusted to make them easy to operate while looking through the viewfinder.
■High-speed performance that ensures you capture every moment
This model is equipped with Touch AF Shutter for simple touch operations on the monitor so you can focus and never miss a great moment. The short shooting time lag and fast responsiveness mean that you can capture split-second movements in shots. Because you can focus on exactly the spot you want, defocusing effects only available on an ILC are possible. This model has a sequential shooting speed of 8.5 fps, improved from the E-M10.
■Large, easy-to-see electronic viewfinder
This model is equipped with a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF). This feature makes it easy to shoot even in direct sunlight where it is difficult to see the monitor.
The field of view is approximately 100%. Unlike most entry-level SLR models, you can capture the area that you see, just as it appears in the viewfinder. The electronic viewfinder boasts a viewfinder magnification rate of 1.23x (35mm equivalent: 0.62x), and is easier to use than ever before.
