The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is currently Olympus' flagship Micro Four Thirds camera. Here, we take a look at some of its top features that make it stand out from the bunch.
5 Axis image stabilisation - 5 Axis image stabilisation ensures you get a crisp image, no matter how erratic the subject matter. The system covers vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, vertical shift, horizontal shift and rolling camera shake.
Weatherproof - The OM-D E-M1 is dust splash and freeze proof to -10 degrees C, allowing you to use the camera in even the most extreme environments without having the worry of what the weather will do.
Size - The E-M1 has all the features of a DSLR, in a much smaller and compact body. It's currently the most advanced compact system camera ever produced, and provides great image quality, too. This makes it really easy to take out with you, without worrying about excess weight and bulkiness - the camera is a lot more portable than a DSLR.
Photo story - This is a great feature that's exclusive to Olympus cameras. It lets you combine several shots in a single frame collage, which is great for capturing the atmosphere at large group events and family gatherings. It makes the process of creating a photo collage really easy, right there in camera.
OI Share - OI Share gives you full control of the aperture, shutter speed and live bulb mode settings for your camera on your smart phone, which is great for remotely accessing and setting up when using a tripod. You can remotely take photos and adjust all major settings, making the mode ideal for longer shutter speed photos.
