Nostalgic in appearance, the Olympus E-M5 takes all the past engineering expertise of the Micro Four Thirds standard and overhauls it with enhanced features on the inside. The jewel in the crown of the E-M5 is its ingenious electronic viewfinder system. Unlike an optical VF, it lets you frame images and get creative with them too - controlling highlights and shadows, white balance, magnification and aspect before even taking the shot. The E-M5's incredible image quality owes a great deal to its 16-megapixel live MOS sensor, fully utilized by the powerful TruePic VI image processor. It gives you all the detail of 16-megapixel resolution, plus greatly reduced noise, high range of sensitivity, a wide dynamic range, rich gradation and accurate color reproduction.
Team this up with the world's fast AF system with vastly improved functionality and you can look forward to incredible sharpness with greater control than ever before. The list of pioneering technological breakthroughs is truly extensive: yet another is the world's first 5-axis image stabilization: visible and controllable through the viewfinder, this sophisticated in-built mechanism compensates for every blur giving you razor-sharp stills and movies. This is one tough tool on the outside too: The magnesium alloy body has a dust- and splash-proof design that can handle some pretty rugged conditions.
