Wield the power of sequential shooting speeds head and shoulders above DSLR camera capabilities. The E-M1 Mark II captures 20 MP RAW image files at an astounding 60 fps in S-AF Mode and 18 fps in C-AF Tracking Mode using it’s innovative silent electronic shutter. Alternatively, use the high-speed mechanical shutter to shoot full resolution photos at a rapid 15fps in S-AF mode, exceeding competing cameras in the same class. No matter how fast your subject is moving, the E-M1 Mark II will capture it in stunning detail thanks to industry leading processing speeds. *Sequential shooting speed as of September 2016, when using Silent Sequential Shooting H Mode S-AF.


Shoot moments that pass in the blink of an eye with accuracy and simplicity. The Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology (F.A.S.T.) AF system has 121 points of On-Chip Phase Detection as well as Contrast Detection AF. All points of On-Chip Phase Detection are cross-type allowing for detection of vertical and horizontal lines, making for top-notch accuracy. By using the in-body AF Limiter function, users can focus even faster and shorten AF drive time with three different focus distance ranges that can be customized to your liking. Shot by Visionary Larry C. Price with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO at 19mm, 1/500 sec., F6.3, ISO500.


Fast action photography has never been this easy with the intuitive 2.36 million-dot LCD EVF. It features a 5 millisecond response time that is not perceivable to the naked eye created by the smooth 120 fps refresh rate. For maximum control, take advantage of the five different auto-focus modes: All point, single point, 5-Point Cross, 9-point group, and small targets. Make focusing on moving subjects simple with Precision C-AF Tracking and the subject-tracking Cluster Display. Change focus points with the AF Targeting Pad option by touching the LCD screen with your finger while composing shots through the viewfinder.


Shoot color-rich, distortion-free photos of subjects in motion with the high-speed design, new 20 MP Live MOS Sensor that includes an anti-reflective coating on both sides of it’s sealed cover glass to limit flare. Blazing sequential shooting and autofocus speeds of the E-M1 Mark II are easily powered by the new dual quad-core TruePic™ VIII Image Processor which contains an impressive four CPU cores, four image processing cores, and a dedicated AF calculation circuit. Shot by Trailblazer Peter Baumgarten with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO at 100mm, 1/1600 sec., F4.0, ISO1250.


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.


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. For those who professionally color grade their footage, a free LUT compatible with DaVinci Resolve is available for download. Shot by Vitek Ludvik with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm F1.2 PRO at 1/125 sec., F7.1, ISO400.


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 35 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.


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.


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. Shot by Hiroyuki Tomura with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO at 7mm, 60 min., f2.8, ISO800.


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. Shot by Olympus Visionary Tracie Maglosky with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm F1.2 PRO at 1/125 sec., F1.2, ISO320.


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. Add the PT-EP14 Underwater Housing that's waterproof to depths of 60 meters and you'll be prepared to capture amazing shots in every environment.
