Description

The Olympus E-M5 Black Digital Camera Body has an innovative electronic viewfinder and great image quality thanks to the new 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor, which is fully utilised by the incredible TruePic VI image processor. This gives all the detail of 16-megapixel resolution, reduced noise, high range sensitivity, and correct colour reproduction. The E-M5 has a quick response touchscreen panel and 9 fps high-speed sequential shooting. the magnesium alloy body is dust and splashproof for practicality.

The electronic viewfinder has 1,400,000 pixels, 1.5x magnification and a 100% coverage. The tilt and turn screen makes taking shots really easy and the optical, sensor shift image stabalisation helps reduce camera shake in low lighting conditions or when selecting a slow shutter. It will shoot in Raw so no image compression, which means top quality images and room for manipulation if required. The camera comes with the Olympus FL-LM2 comact flashgun, which fits onto the hotshoe and links through to the camera.
