OM-D E-M1X Body Black
Micro Four Thirds Digital Mirrorless Camera
Designed to offer professional photo and video capabilities, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X is a capable Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera. Featuring a high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and dual TruePic VIII image processors, the E-M1X is capable of DCI and UHD 4K video recording. A great choice for capturing sports and wildlife, this sensor and processor combination also provide a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 as well as 60 fps shooting with an electronic shutter and 15 fps with a mechanical shutter.
You'll be able to record both DCI (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K movies. When working in DCI, a true 24 fps frame rate is used, along with IPB compression and a 237 Mb/s bit-rate, and UHD 4K is available in frame rates up to 30p and a 102 Mb/s bit-rate. Full HD 1080p and HD 720p recording is also supported, and audio recording is possible using the built-in stereo microphone. An external mic jack and headphone jack are also available for improved audio recording and monitoring.
The camera also features a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation system that works to compensate for up to 7.5 stops of camera shake for sharper handheld images. This unique image stabilisation system works to compensate for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shift, and rolling camera shake movement.
The sensor incorporates 121 on-chip phase-detection points, all of which are cross-type, along with 121 contrast-detection areas for fast and precise focusing and subject tracking. Different focusing modes are available including 121-point, Group 25-point, Group 9-Point, Group 5-Point, Single, and Small AF, for working with close-up subjects. Custom AF targets can also be set within the 121-point grid, and an AF limiter function allows you to constrain the focusing distance within a specified range for more responsive performance. Continuous autofocus is also available and useful when recording video.
This is complimented by Intelligent Subject Detection AF, designed to automatically detect and track subjects such as moving vehicles. For photographing people, Face Priority and Eye Priority AF is also available. Physically it is the first Micro Four Thirds camera with an integrated vertical grip for improved shooting in horizontal or vertical orientation. Dual AF multi selectors allow easy access in either the horizontal or vertical orientation and AF area/target settings can also be customised for shooting in either orientation. It also allows for two batteries to be used at a time, for extended shooting time.
The durable magnesium-alloy body is weather-sealed for peace of mind and dual SD card slots and a USB 3.0 Type-C port expand file saving and tethered shooting capabilities. Compose your images using the 2.36m-dot, 0.83x-magnification electronic viewfinder or 3.0" 1.037m-dot vari-angle LCD touchscreen. Finally, use the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for sharing and remote shooting capabilities.
