By developing the 20M Live MOS sensor together with the TruePic VIII image processor, not only has image quality exponentially improved from past OM-D models, but a high-speed performance of 18 fps in AF/AE tracking and 60 fps in AE/AF lock has been realised with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II. 

The electronic viewfinder provides a smooth and fast display at a 120-fps frame rate and a 0.005-second display time lag, so you will never miss a shot. These cutting-edge technologies are packed into a compact, lightweight and weather-resistant body, allowing you to shoot beautiful images in the most brutal environments.

In addition to all of the functions the camera comes with, firmware updates will become available to further enhance photographic performance.

A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)25600

More Features

This camera is packed with popular Olympus features such as a silent shooting mode, focus stacking, and Live Composite.

Silent Mode for silent shooting

The E-M1 Mark II is equipped with Silent Mode, which disables shutter sounds and electronic sounds for silent shooting. This feature is useful for concerts and other events where sounds are inappropriate.

Focus Stacking Mode

Focus stacking captures 8 photos of slightly different focus and then automatically merges them for a single photo in focus from the foreground to background.

Focus Bracketing Mode

M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 MacroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject., f/7.1, 1/8 sec., Focus Step: 5, 8 images

In focus bracketing, the focal location is shifted slightly with each shutter activation for up to 999 shots. You can select from 10 levels of focus shift. Create photos that look like they belong in an encyclopedia by using photo software to composite images.

Long exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. photography produces spectacular imagery

Live Composite

Live Composite records only those areas that are newly bright, thus avoiding over-exposure which may occur with conventional bulb shooting. This feature allows the capture of beautiful nightscapes with star trails or fireworks in the background and buildings in the foreground. As with Live Bulb, you can confirm the progress of your shot on the rear monitor. Moreover, you can also use the flash to emphasise a moment during the exposure or a penlight to write letters. A maximum exposure of up to 3 hours is possible.

Live Bulb/Live Time

This function updates the display during exposure at a set interval. You can choose from two modes, Live Bulb that opens the shutter while the shutter button is pressed and Live Time that opens the shutter on the first push and closes it on the second push of the shutter button. While in Live Bulb mode, the screen displays the exposure time and a histogramme. When the Bulb/Time shooting mode is selected, the backlight is automatically dimmed to reduce the power consumption and brightness.

Keystone Compensation

Keystone Compensation is similar to using tilt-shift photography. In the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, vertical and horizontal trapezoidal compensation can be adjusted simultaneously as you confirm the results in Live View, prior to releasing the shutter. This feature can also be used to enhance perspective. Keystone Compensation is also available on the Olympus Viewer 3 software, so you can make small adjustments in post-production editing as well.

Fisheye Compensation

(Added feature in firmware V2.0)

The Fisheye Compensation function available in Olympus Viewer 3 is now available in-body. This feature makes it possible to shoot without the fisheye effect, using the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO as a wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties.. You can shoot while confirming compensation effects on the monitor.

Flicker Scan

(Added feature in firmware V2.0)

Flicker Scan has been added for fine-tuning the shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. to reduce flicker effects. It is now possible to watch the monitor while selecting a shutter speed that does not cause flickering effects when using the electronic shutter.

Magnification factor selection during image playback and actual pixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. size display

(Added feature in firmware V2.0)

You can now select the magnification factor (the value when the dial is initially turned one step) during playback. Actual pixel size has also been added to magnification factor options. This makes it possible to check recorded images more quickly.

Olympus Capture tethering software

The Olympus Capture tethering software was developed based on the requests of professional photographers and can be extremely useful for studio photography. The new TruePic VIII image processor and USB 3.0 compatibility provide for transfer speed from the E-M1 Mark II that is four times faster than its successor. Olympus Capture Ver. 1.2 supports the E-M1 Mark II’s 121-point AF area and dual card slots.

Compatible with USB 3.0 for high-speed transfer of large shooting data

  • USB3.0: Easy to connect without worrying about the right position
  • Cable Clip (CC-1): Helps prevent unintentional removal of the USB or HDMI cable from the camera body
  • USB 3.0 (connector Type-C) is now supported for high-speed transfer of large shooting data. The included cable clip can be used to secure the cable and keep it from being disconnected.

Other new functions

Many new functions and user interface displays are included on the E-M1 Mark II.

  • Preset MF: This function lets you instantly set the focus to your preferred position. (Distance setting values are rough estimates.)
  • AF Home settings: Assign AF home settings to one of the buttons, program your most frequently used AF target position, AF Target mode, and AF mode as your AF Home settings, and pull them up simply by pressing the assigned button.
  • Low shutter speed limit: This function lets you set the shutter speed at which the ISO setting begins to automatically rise when in ISO Auto. This is convenient for when you want to shoot at low ISO settings or high shutter speeds.
  • Save settings/Mysets: Backing up camera settings on a computer lets you avoid having to reset them after a firmware upgrade.
  • Assign save folder/new folder: This function lets you assign a folder on the memory card for saving recorded images. You can also create new folders. Doing so helps make image editing and management easier.
  • Grid settings: You can change the colour of the grid to make shooting easier in dark locations such as stage performances.
  • Date/time/second display: You can organise images up to second increments.
  • Tab scroll menu: Scrolling a tab screen that collects separate genres makes it much easier to access the menu.
