The new, revolutionary mirrorless camera, the Olympus OM-D E-M5, has an exceptionally light and compact body. Its Electronic View Finder enables photographers to check exposure levels, white balance and preview Art Filter effects in real-time. When shooting, the photographer can instantly "create" a truly unique world and preserve it in exceptional quality. The "world" will be transformed from something you see to something you "take part" in.
The OM-D's new electronic viewfinder (EVF), with 120 fps refresh rate, features a high-resolution 1.44-million dot LCD, 100% field-of-view coverage and 1.15x maximum magnification that let you totally immerse yourself in your subject and actively control image creation. The EVF also enables you to enlarge the focus point for precision focusing in virtually any shooting situation and can show you the effect of Highlight & Shadow Control, White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Aspect Ratio and a host of other settings and advanced digital image processing functions right in the viewfinder. With improved precision and responsiveness that make it as easy to use as an optical viewfinder, the E-M5's advanced EVF gives you virtually unlimited creative control. Eye sensor technology automatically activates the EVF when you bring the camera to eye level.
The E-M5 is equipped with 5-axis image stabilization system and can compensate for vertical, horizontal and rotational camera shake that conventional 2-axis systems of the past have been unable to handle. Built into the camera body to ensure effective stabilization with all lenses, its unique 5-axis design makes it particularly effective when taking high-magnification telephoto shots, macro close-ups and long exposures. In addition, it can be activated by pressing the shutter button halfway, so you can also use it to stabilize the viewfinder image and obtain a crisp, clear view of your subject that makes it easy to frame and compose your shots.
