The newly-developed image processor and imaging sensor bring out the best in lens ability and performance. Dual FAST AF completely compatible with Four Thirds lenses. This model features a large built-in EVF and in-body 5-Axis Image Stabilization that corrects all types of camera shake. The dustproof/splashproof performance and dust reduction system provide absolute reliability. This fusion of Olympus technology provides image quality that rivals full-size DSLR models without ever having to worry about the shooting environment.
The ZUIKO LENS system was designed specifically to provide the best depictive power on digital cameras. The newly-developed TruePic VII image processor and new 16M Live MOS sensor maximize lens performance. These three cutting-edge technologies generate the highest image quality.
Contrast detection AF and the newly-developed On-chip Phase Detection AF make Dual FAST AF's high-speed and high-precision autofocus possible. AF tracking sequential shooting performance is significantly improved and Four Thirds lenses are completely compatible.
Equipped with a built-in super large, super high-resolution electronic viewfinder rivaling a full-size DSLR camera. The new Adaptive Brightness Technology for automatic brightness adjustment and LV Dynamic Range Expansion functions are now included. These features expand EVF possibilities ever further.
This model is equipped with an in-body 5-axis image stabilization that corrects all types of camera shake that occurs when shooting. Because an in-body Image Stabilization method is used, image stabilization is effective on all lenses.
This model features dustproof and splashproof performance that surpasses the E-5, as well as dust reduction system that powerfully blows off clinging dust and dirt when changing lenses. The heritage of Olympus technologies provide the absolute best image quality without ever having to worry about the shooting environment.
Even with a large EVF that rivals full size DSLR models and a large grip that ensures a firm hold, a surprisingly compact and lightweight camera body was achieved. Large, easy to press buttons in a logical layout provides next-generation control.
This camera is packed with enhanced basic features such as the built-in Wi-Fi for authentic remote shooting, Art Filters for expanding powers of photographic expression, and a 1/8000 sec. high-speed mechanical shutter.
