E-M5 Mark II: Power in your palm.

With the E-M5 Mark II, you have a full-proof portable system. It not only weighs in at a light 417g, it also boasts construction quality beyond compare. It’s splash / dust / freezeproof, so Mother Nature won’t get in the way of you capturing a creative shot or movie. Combined with a compact size, this OM-D lets you naturally get in the scene without sticking out of the crowd.

E-M5 Mark II: Movie-making ease.

Free yourself from the cumbersome camera stabiliser normally needed for cinema-grade movie-making. The E-M5 Mark II features the world’s most powerful 5-Axis IS*, which is all you need for hand-held filming. With it, you can shoot steadily even while moving. The high bit rate of up to 77Mbps and multiple frame rate options let you easily record stunning scenes in Full HD action.

Firmware update for your E-M5 Mark II

Unlock the full potential of your OM-D with these smart new functions
that add extra professionalism to your photography*:

  • Focus Bracketing:
    enhanced macros

    Unique to OLYMPUS, this mode lets you set the camera to take a number of shots, each with a shift in focus, so you can fine-tune focusing and enhance your close-up or macro photography.

  • Flat Color Movie:
    shoot neutral

    This mode makes colour grading in movie editing a breeze, eliminating additional post-processing. With the Movie Info Display, you have key video info such as the histogram and time code at a glance.

  • Slate Tone:
    perfect sound

    The new slate tone feature automatically matches in-camera audio wavelengths with the OLYMPUS LS-100 audio recorder to deliver perfect sound with all your movies.

* Firmware update available from late November 2015.
  • Capture new perspectives.

    Because the touch-screen Vari-angle LCD can be flipped to any angle, you are free to film creative perspectives. Control the microphone and time code on the LCD or use the digital level with ease too.

  • Boost your resolution.

    When it comes to capturing fine details, the higher the resolution, the better. That’s why the E-M5 Mark II comes with new 40M High Res Shot. By capturing eight shots sequentially and then combining them into one, it is ideal for photographing works of art, landscapes or more of an amazing 40 megapixels.

  • The image above only serves for the purposes of illustration.

    Discover the ease of wire-free.

    Take complete control of your photography – wirelessly from your smartphone. Thanks to the E-M5 Mark II’s built-in Wi-Fi, you can adjust aperture, shutter speeds and other settings without ever touching the camera. With OLYMPUS Image Share on your phone, you can then share your photos instantly on social network sites.

  • Lens Variety.

    Discover a compact lens system that makes you free: the OLYMPUS Micro Four Thirds system. With over 40 lenses – many of them dust, splash or freezeproof – it is perfect for your artistic visions, from macro to wide angle to telephoto. Their high quality leverages the
    OM-D’s advanced technology to deliver clear movies or photos.
