Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Mirrorless Camera Body - Silver
The OM-D E-M10 is a brilliant camera, so anything using that as a foundation to build and improve upon was always going to turn out to be a bit of a cracker. Subtle changes to the buttons make this camera even easier to use, and a carefully thought out list of technical upgrades make this a sensible investment. Borrowing features from their higher-end of the OM-D range, Olympus have released yet another tempting proposition to those thinking of making the move to mirrorless.
- 5-axis image stabilisation for better low light photos, less blur
- OLED Electronic Viewfinder with improved resolution
- New & improved design
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II from Olympus builds upon many of the features available in its predecessor, by using the most advanced technology available in the other cameras from the OM-D range.
Once again, housed in a remarkable looking all-metal body, this version incorporates 5-axis in-body image stabilisation alongside a 16.1 megapixel sensor to enable less blur in hand-held shooting and filming, and helping to improve performance in low-light environments.
The high-speed, high-definition OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) utilises a considerably higher resolution than this camera's previous iteration, packing 2,360K dots, almost doubling the resolution to make framing your picture that much clearer and easier.
EVF's are becoming a much more viable viewfinding option in modern cameras, and their ability to let you make creative adjustments on the fly and previewing their outcome really assists the photographer in gaining that shot.
In-built Wi-Fi used in conjunction with the relevant Olympus apps allow for live view on your smartphone or tablet, meaning you can adjust your settings and snap shots remotely - and better yet, share straight to your device for sharing/bragging on your social media outlet of choice!
It wouldn't be a camera of the times if it simply catered for still image photography. Videographers can be left contented with the ultra high-definition 4K time lapse filming option as well as a raft of other movie capturing features.
Dressed in a retro styled silver body, the equally stylish alternative offering of this camera is the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II in Black.This camera is compatible with a large selection of Micro Four-Thirds lenses, and is also available as a kit in the following combinations:
- Olympus E-M10 Mark II in Silver with 14-42MM EZ Pancake Lens Kit
- Olympus E-M10 Mark II in Silver with 14-42MM EZ Pancake Lens + 40-150MM Lens Kit
