WHAT'S IN THE BOX
A Viewfinder with Creative Control that Immerses You in Your Photos
Enter the world of the viewfinder for complete control of your photos and total immersion in the shots you take. With high definition of 1.44 million pixels‚ an approx. 100% field of view‚ and a maximum magnification of 1.15x‚ the viewfinder shows the scenes you want to capture exactly the way they appear. All functions needed to create a photo can be checked and set through the viewfinder‚ including highlight & shadow control‚ for adjusting gradation of brighter and darker areas to your exact taste‚ white balance control‚ enabling creative control over a scene‚ as well as aspect ratio change. The OM-D offers a built-in magnified frame AF function enabling accurate focusing with the subject magnified. Thanks to the eye sensor‚ the system switches the view from the back monitor to the viewfinder automatically when you look into it. The viewfinder provides a natural image for full creative control and excellent visibility in bright sunlight in comparison to the back monitor. It also offers an interface displaying key information in an easily understandable way as well as the limitless ease of use that can only be offered by an electronic viewfinder. Frame your shot‚ make settings quickly with the dials and view the world through the viewfinder in your quest for the perfect photo. To look into this viewfinder is to look into the world of the photograph. This is the concept behind the new OM-D viewfinder.
Highlight & shadow control
Control highlights and shadows while looking into the viewfinder. Because settings can be applied while viewing the effect in real-time‚ bright and dark details can bequickly and easily adjusted. Control of highlights and shadows can each be set in 7 steps.
White balance control
White balance control is an essential feature for creating the photos you desire. You can produce the exact effects you want by setting the white balance according to your own tastes without taking your eye away from the viewfinder.
The OM-D can display magnified subjects so that you can more accurately control the focus. The available zoom magnifications are 5x‚ 7x‚ 10x‚ and 14x. This feature can be assigned to the Fn2 button to let you switch instantaneously between magnified and normal images‚ meaning that you can focus precisely on the subject as well as check the overall photo composition without taking your eye away from the camera.
Aspect Ratio Change
While looking into the viewfinder‚ the user can change the photo aspect ratio to match the desired image. Five aspect ratio options are available: a basic 4:3 aspect‚ a movie-like 16:9 aspect‚ a square 1:1 aspect‚ the same 3:2 aspect as used by 35 mm film cameras‚ and a 3:4 aspect that allows a vertical shot without having to turn the camera.
HIGH QUALITY IMAGE
The Most Visually Stunning Supported by Three Technologies
Introducing a new standard that will redefine the concept of high image quality for digital interchangeable lens cameras. Three elements provide this image quality: the lens‚ the image sensor and the image processor. M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses are optimized for digital photography while still inheriting the superior optical performance of ZUIKO lenses. The new 16M Live MOS sensor boasts 16‚050‚000 pixels‚ high sensitivity and high dynamic range‚ while the TruePic VI image processor accurately reproduces saturation and contrast to maximize lens and image sensor performance. Thanks to this combination of cutting edge technologies‚ the OM-D offers unparalleled definition and the highest image quality in the history of OLYMPUS. Fine details even in shadows‚ precision high definition‚ rich gradation and true-to-life color reproduction allow the world to be captured vividly through the lens‚ enabling the OM-D to render the user's inspiration in all situations. This quantum leap in image quality marks a new era in the history of interchangeable lens cameras.
16M new Live MOS sensor
The new 16-megapixel image sensor delivers even higher definition and even greater dynamic range. Thanks to its high sensitivity of up to ISO 25600‚ as well as significantly lower noise‚ you can now capture light and shadow in unprecedented clarity.
TruePic VI image processor
High image quality is supported by the TruePic VI image processor‚ the most advanced image processor from OLYMPUS. It renders natural images close to what is seen with the naked eye. Fine Detail Processing minimizes loss of resolution while preventing false colors or moiré‚ Real Color Technology accurately reproduces rich gradation colors‚ and Advanced Gradation Auto prevents colors from being washed out in highlights and being darkened in shadows.
M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses
Built for the Micro Four Thirds System standard‚ the ultra-compact M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses inherit the long-admired qualities of ZUIKO lenses. Designed specially for digital cameras‚ these lenses enable light to travel in a near-straight path to the image sensor to optimize performance and ensure high-quality photos.
Even Faster. Even More Accurate. Capture the Instant with the World's Fastest* AF.
The shutter button responds so fast it's as if it already knows the instant you want to shoot. The FAST AF system represents the pinnacle of Olympus AF technologies. Further improvements in speed have achieved the world's fastest AF* that outperforms even phase difference AF systems. The performance of the tracking AF has also been greatly improved. With 3D tracking AF technology that follows a moving subject by detecting face‚ color and pattern‚ and by predicting its movement‚ the AF system can continue to focus on a subject that is moving across a wide area until it leaves the frame. This means that whether the subject is a person‚ animal‚ vehicle‚ or any other fast-moving object‚ you will never lose the instant. The new high-sensitivity image sensor delivers outstanding AF performance even in dark situations‚ and combined with the 35-point area AF that covers the entire screen‚ focusing is accurate in all situations. Capturing the moment is the true essence of photography and the OM-D's AF has been finely tuned for faster and more accurate focus. This advancement will provide you with more opportunities to take the photos that you want.
3D tracking AF
The OM-D utilizes a feature that can not only predict the movement of a subject when it is moving across the frame but also when it is moving forward and backward within the frame. The 3D tracking AF system then keeps the lens focused accurately on the subject even if it moves closer to or away from the camera. In the instant when focus is set‚ the face‚ color and pattern of the subject are detected. Once the autofocus locks onto the subject‚ it will continue to track the subject automatically until it leaves the frame.
35-point area AF
35 AF areas can be selected. Compared with phase difference autofocus‚ this is compatible with a broader range and enables more accurate pinpoint focusing. It is also possible to select an area consisting of a 3x3 group from the 35 areas.
AF at low light
The high sensitivity of the OM-D's sensor allows stable AF performance even in dark conditions. In combination with a high speed lens‚ it is possible to achieve further improvements to the AF under low intensity light. Thanks to the brightness of the electronic viewfinder‚ you can also focus on your subject through the viewfinder even in dark situations.
The World's First* 5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilization
While most previous IS systems compensate for camera shake by addressing two kinds of movement along only 2 axes‚ the image stabilization system on the OM-D is the world's first*1 to compensate for 5 different types of camera shake. In addition to compensation for ordinary camera shake in 2 directions (pitch and yaw)‚ it also provides compensation for camera shake in rolling and camera shake due to the up-down shift and left-right shift that is often caused during macro shooting. The sensor in the top of the camera instantly detects camera shake‚ and the newly developed 5-axis image stabilization unit provides up to 5 steps*2 of compensation. Additionally‚ the new control algorithm works to compensate for camera shake at low frequency‚ which is often caused when the camera is held for longer periods of time. It also stabilizes movies‚ even when shooting while walking. Because the IS system is built into the body‚ it is effective regardless of which lens is used. The OM-D's IS system helps you to focus on a subject‚ and because it is activated at the moment when the shutter button is half-way pressed*3‚ you can determine the photo composition while viewing a stabilized image. Get exactly the photo you wanted‚ even when shooting impulsively to capture an impromptu moment. The OM-D's IS system lets you concentrate fully on framing and capturing your shot.
New 5-axis IS unit
The new IS unit compensates for camera shake in 5 axis directions: (1) up-down (pitch)‚ (2) left-right (yaw)‚ (3) left-right horizontal shift‚ (4) up-down vertical shift‚ and (5) rolling camera shake. Compensation is provided for camera shake which could not be compensated with conventional 2-axis IS systems‚ including horizontal and vertical shift and rolling camera shake which is particularly noticeable in movies.
