Product Description

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II is the latest addition to the OM-D family. A newly developed 5-axis VCM image stabilisation, which powerfully compensates for any type of shaking, provides unparralelled performance in both stills and video capture. The dustproof and splashproof construction, is now also freezeproof for even better reliability under the harshest of conditions. This incredibly mobile body is packed with the latest technologies, including OM-D Movie for cinema-quality, hand-held interchangeable lens camera shooting. The incredibly high performance and excellent mobility the E-M5 Mark II provides opens doors to new shooting experiences.

The improved in-body 5-axis image stabilisation achieves compensation ability equal to the world's highest 5 steps of shutter speed, making hand-held shooting enjoyable, and making it possible to shoot at a telephoto end without worrying about camera shake even in dark locations. This model is equipped with halfway release image stabilisation so you can view image stabilisation effects in the viewfinder while pressing the shutter button halfway. This makes more accurate framing and focusing possible through a stable viewfinder image during macro and telephoto shooting.

The further advanced in-body 5-axis image stabilisation enables stable movie recording even during active camera work. The compact, lightweight OM-D allows you to capture stable video even when moving. OM-D Movie achieves the most advanced stabilisation system of any interchangable lens camera on the market.

When using Silent mode (electronic shutter), AF and all other electronic sounds are disabled so you can shoot discreetly in quiet locations. This can also be used with sequential shooting, and shutter speeds are available from 1/16000 sec. to 60 sec.  Ideal for scenarios where quiet function is imperative such as performances and weddings or even photographing sleeping infants.
