Product Description


Electronic Viewfinder with 1.44 megapixel resolution
The integrated high resolution EVF features advanced aspherical optics, 18mm eyepoint and a 100% field of view. The Olympus E-M5 immerses the you fully into the creative process through a genuine WYSIWYG experience. Exposure, colour and filter effects are seen live, not after the picture has been taken. Built-in diopter adjustable.

World’s fastest autofocus speed 
The E-M5 sets a new AF speed benchmark using its FAST-AF technology with 35 AF zones and 3D AF tracking

World’s first 5-axis image stabiliser 

A totally new image-stabilisation system has been developed for the E-M5 providing groundbreaking 5-axis stabilisation of pitch, yaw, roll, and horizontal and vertical translational movements. This new system has a maximum -5 EV stabilisation capability and the ability to show a Live image-stabilised view and is effective for both stills and video shooting. The body-integrated nature of the system means that all lenses used with the camera are stabilised, eliminating the need for costly specialised lenses. Even heritage manual focus lenses that are non-electronically coupled can benefit from stabilisation

New 16 megapixel LiveMOS high-speed image sensor 
This new image sensor provides up to an ISO 25600 maximum sensitivity

TruePic VI advanced image processor
The latest TruePic processor provides a new level of image quality with even better noise processing for cleaner and clearer pictures and superior video processing results with significantly reduced aliasing

Full HD video with Multi-motion image stabilisation 
The E-M5 captures broadcast quality video in Linear PCM stereo sound. Rolling shutter effects are virtually eliminated ensuring the video capture quality is aberration free

3-inch tilting OLED touch-screen 
A brilliant OLED screen with 610,000 pixels provides crystal clear LiveView and image playback. Touchscreen control enables one-touch tap shooting with autofocusing as well as touch-enabled playback control. The tilt-mechanism enables an upwards angle of 80 degrees and downwards of 50 degrees.

9 frames per second sequential shooting rate
High readout speeds and extremely quick image processing enables a very high 9 frames per second shooting speed for sports and action photography

Splashproof and Dustproof metal alloy chassis
For all-weather shooting, the E-M5 is the first weather-sealed compact system camera in the world when used with the M.Zuiko 12-50mm zoom lens
