Olympus has announced its latest camera in the OM-D series at Photokina 2016. The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is equipped with dual fast AF enabling users to set an optimal contrast AF and an On-chip Phase Detection AF. It also features a high-performance TruePic VII image processor, making it a Compact System Camera with a pro-level performance.
Under the hood, the camera includes a TreuPic VIII Image Processor with four computing and processing cores which claim to offer up to 3.5 times faster performance as compared to its predecessors in the TruePic series. The device has a 20.4MP Live MOS sensor with which the company claims to offer a 25% higher resolution.
New shooting specifications in the OM-D E-M1 Mark II include:
- Pro Capture mode – for lag-free shooting helping users capture fleeting moments with clarity.
- 50MP High Resolution Shot Mode – for images which, as per the company, will offer ‘incredible detail’ rivalling that of full-frame DSLRs.
- 5-Axis Image Stabilization – the in-body apparatus offsets the effect of a camera shake in all of its forms.
The OM-DE-M1 Mark II also has dual memory card slots to store all images and videos. Backed by a 1,720 mAh battery, it charges 50% faster as compared to cameras launched earlier.
