Olympus OM-D E-M1X Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only, Black)
Featuring the world’s highest image stabilisation performance with approximately 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation, high-speed burst shooting up to 60fps and a new auto focus system with intelligent subject detection, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X Mirrorless Digital Camera enables photographers to capture plitsecond images beautifully.
An integrated vertical grip provides secure hold whilst maintaining system mobility through the Micro Four Thirds system design architecture. The OM-D E-M1X allows for quick operation through the viewfinder with a tactile button design that allows the photographer to easily change settings whilst shooting. This camera also includes two TruePic VIII image processors for stunning images and 4K video with OM-Log400 colour grading in post-production. Pairing the OM-D E-M1X with the versatile, excellent image quality of the M.Zuiko lens line-up, including fisheye, super wide-angle, super-telephoto, and macro lenses, this compact, lightweight, high image quality camera system shows its true abilities in scenes where portability is essential, such as in sports and wildlife photography. The new Olympus OM-D E-M1X expands the OM-D camera line-up for professionals, positioned along-side the E-M1 Mark II which has received high praise for its high-speed, performance, mobility and excellent image quality.
Excellent grip whether held horizontally or vertically
Improved hand hold with a deep finger rest whether holding the camera horizontally or vertically, and an ergonomic design that reduces fatigue when shooting for long periods of time.
Optimal portability for viewfinder shooting
A multi selector is included in both the horizontal and vertical positions so that users can quickly shift focus areas while looking through the viewfinder. A new CLOCK lever is included for locking the controls in the vertical position and locking selected controls only.
High magnification, high-speed viewfinder
The viewfinder features a new optical design with class-leading viewfinder magnification of 0.83x (35mm equivalent). The four-element configuration with aspherical lenses and lenses with a high reflective index enable clear, distortion-free display right up to the edge of the viewfinder. A 120 fps (progressive system) high-speed frame rate and a mere 0.005 second display time lag are offered for stress-free moving subject photography.
The OM-D E-M1X is equipped with a cartridge battery insertion system with the capacity for two BLH-1 lithium-ion batteries. Users can capture up to approximately 870 shots and easily replace the batteries even when the camera is attached to a monopod or tripod. This is also the first camera in the world to support USB PD (power delivery), and power supply to the camera from a maximum 100 W USB PD standard power source. This makes it possible to charge the two BLH-1 batteries in the camera body in approximately two hours.
Quickly shift the AF area with a multi selector
A multi selector is included in both the horizontal and vertical positions on the OM-D EM1X so that users can quickly shift the AF area while looking through the viewfinder. This feature makes it possible to smoothly shift AF areas during sequential shooting and video recording.
121-point All-cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor for greater freedom over composition
Olympus On-chip Phase Detection AF delivers not only Live View images, but also utilizes AF information from recorded images to enable quick tracking of unpredictable subject movement and changes in subject speed. The AF low light limit when an F1.2 lens is attached is -6 EV, for high-precision focusing in both dark scenes and low-contrast subjects.
Various AF modes
Various AF modes are available including AF Target mode and AF area position settings when holding the camera vertically or horizontally, turning the focusing ring in C-AF AF to instantly switch to manual focus using C-AF+MF, etc. The new 25-point group target and custom AF target been added in AF Target settings to allow the photographer greater control over the AF size and shape of the AF area.
60 fps high-speed sequential shooting at 20.4 million effective pixel and RAW recording
The 60 fps high-speed sequential shooting and maximum approximate 18 fps AF/AE tracking highspeed sequential shooting can both be used in silent mode for shooting at concerts and sporting events.
Pro Capture Mode - no blackouts, RAW shooting support
Pro Capture Mode records up to 35 frames retroactively from when the shutter button is released with no blackouts (image loss) during shooting, recording at 20 million pixels and offers support for RAW mode.
Double TruPicVIII high-speed image processors
This design enables quicker start-up times, recovery from sleep mode and two highspeed UHS-II SD card slots for overall high-speed responsiveness. This not only contributes to a faster camera, but also enables the latest shooting functions such as Handheld High Res Shot, Live ND, and Intelligent Subject Detection AF
Handheld High Res Shot - long awaited by landscape photographers
This feature is particularly useful for capturing high-definition shots in locations where it is impossible to use a tripod, such as when moving from place to place while hiking.
Live ND delivers slow shutter speed effects
Live ND is included on the OM-D E-M1X for slow shutter speed effects as though using an ND filter. This new technology combines multiple exposed images to attain slow shutter effects. It is also possible to check the slow shutter effects in the viewfinder before shooting for improved efficiency. Effects can be set in five levels: ND2 (equivalent to one shutter speed step), ND4 (2 steps), ND8 (3 steps), ND16 (4 steps), and ND32 (5 steps).
Intelligent Subject Detection AF developed through deep learning technology
Deep learning, a type of Artificial Intelligence (AI), was utilised to develop the algorithms in this function. It detects three different types of subjects, including motorsports, airplanes, and trains, focusing on and tracking the optimal area. For example, it sets a pinpoint focus on the driver’s helmet during motorsports, automatically detecting the subject, enabling improved autofocus precision so users can focus on the composition.
The highest image stabilisation compensation performance when combined with M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO
The OM-D E-M1X’s new gyro sensor enables 5-axis sync IS, which delivers a maximum of approximately 7.0 shutter speed steps of compensation performance when using the body alone, and the world’s highest approximately 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation when combined with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO lens.
