Olympus pushed the boat – the new OM-D E-M5 Mark II is sealed, is running better matrix also has a shooting mode at 40 megapixels. And that's not all.
Great start to the day
Olympus knows how to make potential users smiled
Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II is another, very successful premiere of the Japanese. From the outside, not much has changed; still we have a body small and fairly light, but now a magnesium enclosure is fully sealed. Grip itself is also slightly deeper than the previous generation of hardware.on the front panel will not experience a revolutionary change; otherwise it is but with the rear of the camera, which came to be known with OM-D E-M1 2×2 knob that allows to switch between the different settings (controlling the shutter speed, the aperture or exposure compensation and ISO sensitivity modifying white balance). Moreover, the equipment features 5 programmable function keys and locking mode dial – therefore as you can see, from the ergonomic hard to stick to your new baby Olympus. As has already started on the mode dial, you should also mention przemeblowaniu top plate. The switch was moved to the left side, also decreased thumb knob available. buttons, as you notice, a lot of that in such a small body makes a big impression. There are, moreover, more than in the first E-M5 – get after HDR / FN4 at the top and depth of field preview visible from the front of the camera. In place of the accessory port appears shoe, compatible among the sealed kit included with the FL-LM3 lamp with pivoting head.
40 megapixels in your pocket
No, this is not Nokia
A similar password you can use Nokia, but this Olympus – for obvious reasons – we will ensure better picture quality. Using a 16-megapixel Live MOS receive ISO range of 100-25600 (native: 200-25600), 5-axis mechanical stabilization of the effectiveness of up to 5 EV and the function for which they all say images with a resolution of 40 megapixels. Mode will be available only for still subjects – requires the micro-sensor, creating eight successive frames and combined them in the final picture. A similar solution appeared already in the cosmic Hasselbladach expensive, but these composite machines consisting of medium format with six frames. Olympus, on the other hand, takes full advantage of its 5-axis stabilization system, so it can avoid the limitations Bayer filter color palette.
Short, the minimum shutter speed
Up to 1/16000 seconds
Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II boasts two modes Shutter – mechanically, to 1/8000 second, and electronics, where the minimum opening time is reduced to 1/16000 seconds. In practice, this means that we can register without any problems portraits in direct sunlight, with a fully open aperture. This will have a remarkable significance to those who are looking for a small camera that also does not mean consent to the many compromises.
The equipment, which can compliment superlatives
Browsing specification Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, I am not able to find his weaknesses. This equipment whose performance and seal praise all the reviewers, whose ergonomics makes paramount impression (what else we will see during your test), which is to offer a 3-inch screen and electronic viewfinder, high-resolution, high-speed autofocus and refreshed, mechanically stabilized matrix. The camera will appear in Polish stores as early as mid-February of this year. The price for the same body will be 4790 dollars.
