Olympus OM-D E-M1 Compact System Camera
The new OM-D E-M1 coupled with the ultra silent M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 EZ lens guarantees ultra smooth transitions worthy of top cinematographers, thanks to an electromagnetic zoom mechanism that powers the lens on its own. So now anyone can shoot more professional looking movies with the minimum of effort. Extremely versatile, the all-encompassing Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 EZ, offering a 35mm equivalent of 24-100mm, is as adept at wide-angle work as it is portraiture and macro close up photography. While the lens is ideal for video work, it’s no slouch when it comes to shooting stills either, delivering lightning fast auto focus and variable zoom speed. Closest focusing distance is 20cm.
OM-D E-M1: The whole package. In a perfectly-sized package
Like the idea of a pro-standard camera that's not too big and not too small?
It comes in a compact body design and is much more lightweight than APS-C cameras - for everyday convenience.
When combined with the compact and lightweight ZUIKO lens system, comfortable shooting is available anytime and anywhere with imaging excellence in every shot, with every lens, in every shooting situation.
The compact system camera with a huge lens line-up
Keen to specialise your photography in those styles that interest you most?
The OM-D E-M1 gives you incredible access to an interchangeable system of 65 Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds lenses. This incredible versatility is all thanks to the OM-D E-M1's compatibility with both Micro Four Thirds and now all Four Thirds lenses* on top. It means there is always precisely the right lens available for the specialist kind of photos you want to take, as well as the right lens for any subject and any type of shooting conditions.
The OM-D E-M1 also brings out the best in each lens by applying DUAL FAST AF with the addition of Phase Detection AF to complement Contrast AF, for extremely fast and incredible visual capture.
* MMF-3 adapter required to use Four Third lenses.
Engineered to outperform D-SLR cameras
Looking for a camera that delivers consistently high performance and image quality?
The OM-D E-M1 has adopted the existing first-class OM-D imaging technologies and taken them up a notch for the consistently sharp, vivid, true-to-life imaging results you expect.
Enhanced WiFi connectivity now gives you more control and creative scope from your smartphone, including the adjustment of your shutter speed and aperture. The DUAL FAST AF system utilises both On-chip Phase Detection AF and Contrast AF, enabling any lens you're using to perform with incredible speed and accuracy. The 5-axis image stabilisation is now even more intelligent for optimised results, and the Electronic Viewfinder now gives you a 1.3x larger view compared to an average DSLR camera, enhanced creative options such as colour manipulation with the new Colour Creator function, and far greater overall shooting accuracy with the help of useful aids such as adaptive brightness technology.

Features you'll Love
Dust, splash and freezeproof: the all-terrain, all-weather OM-D E-M1
The OM-D E-M1 allows you to shoot in all environments and it's practically impenetrable magnesium alloy body with 60 gasket rings for special sealing gives you highly weather-resistant protection wherever you take your camera. The in-built SSWF (Supersonic Wave Filter) also generates ultrasonic vibrations exceeding 30,000 times per second, effectively blasting dust particles away from the protective dust filter in front of the OM-D E-M1's image sensor. The OM-D E-M1 also provides you with reliable operation down to -10°C.
The new standard M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO zoom lens also includes a mount with the same type of sealing as the OM-D E-M1 body. Two other compatible accessories, the Power Battery Holder HLD-7 and Four Thirds Adapter MMF-3, also contribute to making the entire system highly impermeable to sand, dust, and water spray.
Unique to OM-D: 5-axis image stabilisation for your shots and movies
Interested in the option of handheld shooting in situations where you would normally need to use a tripod? The OM-D E-M1's incredibly high-tech 5-axis image stabilisation system makes this possible. Thanks to control algorithms, image stabilisation at longer shutter speeds is more effective than ever.
The IS-AUTO feature now automatically detects when you wish to take vertical, horizontal and angular panning shots, controlling the level of correction for the desired panning effects. Another big advantage of this in-body IS system is that it compensates for camera shake with every single type of lens available, including Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds lenses, and with a combination of 5-axis IS and Multi-Motion IS, powerful image stabilisation takes effect to minimise blurs and jolts when shooting movies as well.
DUAL FAST AF. Get the speed and accuracy of all autofocus systems
FAST AF - the ultra-fast autofocus system brings even more speed and accuracy to all Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds lenses. DUAL FAST AF utilises both On-chip Phase Detection AF and Contrast AF, automatically switching to the optimum AF system for the lens you're using and the situation you're shooting in.
On-chip Phase Detection AF makes full use of its 37 AF targets whenever a Four Thirds System compliant lens optimally designed for Phase Detection AF is attached, for excellent quality results. When a lens is attached that conforms to the MFT standard, the Contrast AF method is automatically selected. Its AF points have been expanded from 35 to 81 for even greater precision, including the option of Super Spot AF for pinpointing details, e.g. in macro shots. When a lens that conforms to the Micro Four Thirds standard is attached and C-AF is selected for subject tracking and continuous AF, On-chip Phase Detection AF and Contrast detection AF are used together. This results in significant improvement of C-AF tracking performance over traditional mirrorless models, with a maximum sequential shooting performance of 6.5 fps.
Advanced Electronic Viewfinder. Now with a 1.3x larger view than the average D-SLR
The OM-D E-M1 features an advanced EVF system that excels both in terms of screen size and greater creative scope. The built-in Electronic Viewfinder gives you a 1.3x larger view even than high-end D-SLR cameras, plus razor-sharp 2,360k dot resolution and just 29 ms time lag. It is also equipped with state-of-the-art technology that enhances your control and lets you check what finished images will look like through the viewfinder, for enhanced shooting accuracy. The Adaptive Brightness Technology, for example, automatically adjusts the brightness of the viewfinder's backlight according to changes in the environmental light, assuring excellent visibility at all times. Now all four of the operations involved in photographic image creation - gradation, focusing, composition and colour tone control, can also be adjusted while checking the final result on the viewfinder screen.
Full control of aperture, shutter speed and Live Bulb from your smartphone
The OM-D E-M1 is equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi function that gives you more control from your smartphone. When using the OLYMPUS Image Share (O.I.Share) smartphone app, you can share your images with ease, operate the shutter wirelessly from your smartphone while viewing the Live View screen, and geotag your photos using location information from your smartphone. You can now even switch between the various shooting modes (P, A, S, M, iAUTO) and wirelessly adjust settings such as the shutter speed, aperture value, and exposure compensation from your smartphone. The new Live Bulb shooting mode now also lets you capture amazing long-exposure shots without any camera shake.

Top customer reviews
Still exploring, but I think this is the best camera I have ever tried. And I have tried many mid professional DSLR's (Nikon & Canon) but love the OMD-E1!
I am 'only' an amateur and don't speak 'photographic'. But I am enthusiastic and am extremely pleased with the results of my choices. The camera and lenses are light weight and produce top-notch, excellent images. The auto focus is just a dream, and to my inexpert fingers, unbeatable. Images are unquestionably and truly SHARP. The great range of ISO settings combined with the quality of the pro-lenses result in excellent quality images in low light. I love this camera. But the core reason why I wanted to make this review was that in existing reviews I saw that there were criticisms of 'over processing' by the camera, and I would really wish to put this right.
The trouble is that the instructions are deficient in explaining how to get at the white balance settings. Two vital steps are omitted in those places where you would expect to find them. I only found this out by searching on the internet. Once you can get at the white balance settings, and set them up how you want them, you get beautiful, natural colours, exactly reflecting how they really are in real life. There is absolutely no question - there is NO over processing!!!
