Up to 18 frames per second sequential shooting with precision C-AF Tracking. 121 Cross-Type On-Chip Phase Detection AF points. Up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation with powerful in-body image stabilization. Plus a 50MP High-Res Shot Mode. It's all enclosed in a magnesium alloy weatherproof body that weighs a mere 600 grams. Paired with the superior resolution of M.Zuiko PRO lenses, the E-M1 Mark II will deliver brilliant imagery that's coveted by professionals everywhere.
THE WORLD'S FASTEST*
Experience sequential shooting speeds that far surpass those of DSLR cameras. Using its advanced silent electronic shutter, the E-M1 Mark II captures 20 MP RAW image files at up to an astonishing 60 fps in S-AF Mode and 18 fps in C-AF Tracking Mode. Or, use the E-M1 Mark II's high-speed mechanical shutter to shoot full resolution photos at a blazing 15 fps in S-AF Mode, far surpassing other cameras in its class. Thanks to cutting-edge processing speeds, even fast-moving subjects are captured in stunning detail.
*Sequential shooting speed as of September 2016, when using Silent Sequential Shooting H Mode S-AF.
Capturing the best moments can be difficult, especially when your subject is in motion. Pro Capture Mode ensures you'll catch the exact moment you want without any lag. Pro Capture uses the silent electronic shutter to start buffering a running series of full resolution JPEG / RAW images when you press the shutter release button halfway. Then, fully press the shutter release to capture an image plus the 14 previous frames all at once. You can keep the shutter release fully depressed to continue sequential shooting. With its time machine-like capability, Pro Capture always has the perfect shot stored and ready to save.
NEXT LEVEL AF
Capture split-second moments with precision and ease. The Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology (F.A.S.T.) AF system boasts 121 points of On-Chip Phase Detection plus Contrast Detection AF. Every point of On-Chip Phase Detection is cross-type, facilitating detection of vertical and horizontal lines for superior accuracy. For even faster focusing, the in-body AF Limiter function shortens AF drive time with three customizable focus distance ranges.
COMPOSE AND CONTROL
Capturing fast action is easy with the interactive 2.36 million-dot LCD EVF. It features a smooth 120 fps refresh rate with a 5 millisecond response time that's imperceptible to the human eye. For superior control, there are four AF target modes: All Point, Single Point, 5-Point Cross, and 9-Point Group. Precision C-AF Tracking and the subject-tracking Cluster Display simplify focusing on moving subjects. And the AF Targeting Pad function lets you move the focus point by touching the LCD monitor with your thumb while composing shots through the viewfinder.
OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY
The new 20 MP Live MOS Sensor features an Anti-Reflective Coating on both sides of the sealed cover glass to reduce flare, and its high-speed design captures distortion-free images of moving subjects that are rich in color and detail. It works simultaneously with the new dual quad-core TruePic™ VIII Image Processor that boasts four CPU cores, four image processing cores, and a dedicated AF calculation circuit to easily power the E-M1 Mark II's blazing sequential shooting and autofocus speeds.
WORLD'S MOST EFFECTIVE IMAGE STABILIZATION*
The advanced 5-Axis Image Stabilization compensates for all types of camera motion to provide up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation for crisp images. When paired with a M.Zuiko PRO lens that features in-lens stabilization, 5-Axis Sync IS provides up to 6.5 shutter speed steps, the world's most effective stabilization performance*. Capture blur-free shots at longer shutter speeds of up to 2 seconds, no tripod required.
*As of September 2016, with M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO, 100mm focal length, Yaw / Pitch correction.
HANDHELD 4K VIDEO
Capture C4K (4096 x 2160) video up to max bit rate of 237 Mbps at a 24P frame rate for true cinema quality. For even greater flexibility, shoot 4K (3840 x 2160) video with a 30P, 25P, or 24P frame rate. With the E-M1 Mark II's 5-Axis Image Stabilization and electronic stabilization that's optimized for video, you'll shoot ultra-smooth handheld UHD video without tripods, jibs, or other bulky stabilizing equipment. Plus, there are two HDMI output modes: Monitor Mode supports an external monitor display, while Recording Mode records to an external monitor recorder.
50 MEGAPIXEL HIGH RES SHOT
The E-M1 Mark II's High Res Shot Mode creates incredibly sharp images with resolution that exceeds that of many full-frame DSLRs. It automatically captures 8 consecutive shots in one second, then composites the images into one ultra-high resolution shot. The advanced TruePic™ VIII Image Processor prevents image blur caused by subject movement for greater shooting flexibility. To customize your final file size, both a 50 MP Mode and a 25 MP Mode are available.
ADVANCED SHOOTING MODES
Silent Mode completely eliminates shutter noise and all electronic sounds, perfect for quiet environments. With the Live Composite and Live Bulb Modes, you'll shoot beautiful nighttime photos as you watch the image build up on the monitor, giving you freedom of exposure adjustment. For sharp macro photos with large depths of field, Focus Stacking automatically takes several shots with varying focal points and composites them into a single image.
LIGHTWEIGHT WEATHERPROOF DESIGN
Whether you're taking to the streets, traveling the world, or working in the studio, the E-M1 Mark II is built to keep you capturing great shots without worrying about your gear. Combined with M.Zuiko PRO lenses, the E-M1 Mark II is more compact and lightweight than DSLRs, providing comfortable shooting with more freedom - even allowing for handheld super-telephoto photography. The metal body provides outstanding grip and is hermetically sealed to be splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C), so you can take advantage of every photo opportunity in any environment.
The new high-capacity Li-Ion battery enables more images on a single charge (up to 440 shots) plus requires less charging time. The camera's percentage battery display lets you check the remaining battery charge at a glance. Dual card slots feature a staggered layout for easy access and boast four recording settings, ideal for the backup and management of your image and video files. And the E-M1 Mark II's shutter surpasses durability tests of 200,000 actuations.
COMPLETE YOUR OWN PRO SYSTEM
We've created an entire professional system to complement your new E-M1 Mark II. Both the FL-900R High-Intensity Flash and the STF-8 Twin Macro Flash feature weatherproof construction and are perfectly matched to the E-M1 Mark II's compact dimensions. The HLD-9 Powered Grip offers a second arrow pad for convenient control when holding the camera vertically, and the RM-CB2 Remote Cable Release easily connects to the camera with an L-shaped pin jack.
