High Resolution, 20.4MP Live MOS Sensor & Dual TruePic VIII Image Processors

Intelligent and powerful features have been planted into this classy Olympus OM-D E-M1X Camera, such as the high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor along with its high-speed dual TruePic Image Processors to deliver cutting-edge functionality, and to create high image quality. The sensor in the latest E-M1X Olympus camera has improved its sensitivity and a standard ISO sensitivity range of ISO 6400. The sensor is also protected with Anti-Reflective coating thats been applied to the surface, to effectively reduce flare and ghosting and it also minimises movement distortion through faster signal read out speeds which will gladly enable 4K video recording with absolutely low power consumption.The dual TruePic VIII Image Processors makes it possible that the camera can accommodate two SD memory cards, reduces the start-up time, allows Intelligent Subject Detect AF.

Tripod High Res Shot

This mode will allow the image sensor in the Olympus OM-D E-M1X Camera to move in 0.5-pixel increments to photograph 8 images, which will then be merged to form a single 50MP high-resolution image. This is ideal for overpowering movement such as rippling surface of water or even leaves that are shaking in the wind.

In-Body Fisheye Compensation

All thanks to its powerful dual TruePic VIII Image processors, the camera a feature that makes it possible to remove the fisheye effect when your camera is compared with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F/1.8 Fisheye Pro lens. The correction effect of this compensation can either be seen in Live View, on the camera monitor or the viewfinder.

Intelligent & Enhanced Customisable Autofocus System

Olympus has greatly improved it autofocus, being much more enhanced than before to provide photographers more autofocus capabilities. This will enable you as the photographer to customise and inclusion of multi point selector which will allow the camera to have greater responsiveness to a subjects size, speed and movement. In addition to all of this, it also features the newly Intelligent Subject Detection Autofocus that allows the camera to detect specific subjects.

Face Priority and Eye Priority Autofocus

A powerful feature thats been incorporated into the Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera, that can greatly be used by portrait photographers is the face priority and eye priority autofocus mode. The mode will always make sure that it automatically detects and focuses on the subjects face and eyes.

OM-D Movie -Handheld and Cinema 4K Video Recording

Enjoy every moment recorded in high resolution 4K format with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera. The camera also features video electronic stabilisation to compensate handheld cinema-quality 4K video recording. The image stabilisation strength has been designed with three levels to allow you as the photographer to match the position and movement precisely.

Fully Weather-Sealed Construction

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X features a fully weather-sealed construction, being dust, splash and freeze proof. You can still make use of connecting the microphone, headphone terminals and you dont have to worry about anything getting damaged as the sealing still remains maintained when shooting in harsh weather conditions. (Note: to shoot with a rain cover when having additional accessories attached)

OM-Log Video Recording

The OM-Log recording option provides a high degree of freedom during shooting without the worry of your settings being overexposed, loss of any details in dark sections and highlights. The OM-Log mode is commonly used by professional videographers, as it allows you to take it into post-production for colour grading.

High Speed Movie @ 120fps

The high-speed movie mode allows you to have much more creative control, letting you slow down your video recording @ 120fps in Full HD format.

Stay Connected with Image Share

Olympus has made things so much easier with the Image Share app where you can easily connect your smartphone to your camera by simply scanning the QR code within the app which will quickly pair the two devices. Once you have access to the app, youll be able to easily transfer data such as images and videos over WiFi from the camera to your smartphone.

Integrated Vertical Grip

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera features a fairly large design which is all thanks to its integrated vertical grip still featuring the same grip and controls whether its being held vertically or horizontally. The design now also features much deeper rests on both vertical and horizontal orientations to provide a much better feel & grip to photographers that are shooting for longer periods of time.
