Image quality, compact design, technology – the best reasons for choosing OM-D

Premium design

The OM-D line-up is built to deliver: brilliant image quality, high speed, pinpoint precision and a host of creative options – wrapped up in a timeless, high-grade design. Every detail of these superb cameras has been meticulously designed to provide a user-friendly, ergonomic camera that is also a true eye-catcher.

OM-D: Expert craftsmanship from all angles

All the cameras in the OM-D line-up are the epitome of style and elegance. Their ergonomics, haptic metal dials, Electronic Viewfinder and more are in perfect harmony – exuding professionalism at every level of photography.

Sculpted to perfection

  • Intuitive ergonomics

    The logical placement of the haptic metal dials, the perfectly proportioned control buttons, the distance between the various elements – they all come together to provide an overall aesthetic appearance while ensuring OM-D cameras are also a true pleasure to use.

  • Solid textures

    The OM-D line-up exudes professionalism at every level of photography. They feature a genuine front-and-back grip that fits perfectly in the hand. The high-grade materials with fine textures provide both a secure hold and lend the camera a high-class form.

  • High-grade build

    The signature OM-D build is beautifully sculpted of cutting-edge magnesium alloy. Unnecessary bulk has been eliminated to exude strength and sharpness. Despite the metal housing, the cameras remain discreet and lightweight enough to take on every photo assignment.

Reduced to perfection

An everyday tool for taking anywhere, all the cameras in the OM-D line-up have a compact body that has been significantly reduced in size and weight while providing perfection with every shot.

Ingenious engineering

  • Optimal sensor size

    The sensor in all the OM-D cameras is just the right size for capturing as much light as possible, without compromising on image quality. Its advanced construction delivers dynamic range and enhanced low-light performance similar to full-frame D-SLRs.

  • Expertly crafted lenses

    Perfectly complementing the OM-D line-up with their compact, lightweight size, the over 40 different interchangeable lenses in the Micro Four Thirds range bring out the most of the brilliant sensor technology delivering outstanding image quality

  • Compact design

    The engineering excellence that has gone into the OM-D line-up has resulted in outstanding images from a slim-sized camera that is ready to go on any assignment around the world. By eliminating the use of unnecessary mechanical parts, OM-D has truly been reduced to perfection.

Performance at the highest level

When it comes to OM-D’s advanced technology, the engineers at OLYMPUS concentrated on delivering the high performance that photographers need for realising their creativity. Especially thanks to powerful image stabilisation, you get the pin-sharp photos you want, in a high quality you’ve come to expect from an innovation leader in camera technology.

Advanced image stabilisation

A trailblazer of sensor-based image stabilisation (IS), OLYMPUS has integrated its renowned IS technology into every OM-D camera. So regardless of the lens you use, your photos turn out sharp and breathtaking. It helps to eliminate blur during low-light, long-exposure shooting – no tripod needed.

  • World’s most powerful 5-Axis IS*

    Our engineers have taken OLYMPUS image stabilisation further with ultimate 5-Axis Image Stabilisation (IS) on the E-M5 Mark II. It is the culmination of the OM-D experience – ideal for handheld shooting using long exposure, for instance when shooting indoors or at night. It compensates for every kind of jolt or shake to deliver sharp images.

  • OM-D Movie

    The powerful 5-Axis IS system also means the E-M5 Mark II is ideal for steady, freestyle filming without the need for an external camera stabiliser. Follow the action, get right up to the subject and film from fascinating angles while walking – and record clear, sharp movies at the same time.

Intelligent Electronic Viewfinder

For gaining full creative control over the scene or subject to be captured, all OM-D cameras feature an advanced Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). With Creative Control, you can alter aspect, manipulate colours and light, change focus and more without ever needing to take your eye off the subject – and before you ever press the shutter button.

Super-fast autofocus

The super-fast autofocus on all OM-D cameras delivers full speed and accuracy with every shot. Its excellent tracking performance makes it perfect for shooting dynamic subjects, and it also boasts superb low-light capabilities and Sequential Shooting to expertly capture sporting events in clear quality.

Robust construction

Other camera brands may claim to be ready for all-terrain shooting – high-end OM-D cameras truly are. Thanks to the practically impenetrable magnesium alloy body with up to 60 gasket rings for maximum protection, OM-D cameras are ideal for photography in damp habitats, sandy situations or sub-zero temperatures.
