The Olympus OM-D E-M1X is Olympus' largest Micro Four Thirds camera released, and is aimed at the sports or professional photographer who wants to shoot sports, and action, with a telephoto or long lens. The E-M1X, as Olympus's flagship, offers some of the latest versions of Olympus's technology. This includes an updated 5-axis image stabilisation system, giving up to 7.5 stops of compensation. There's a new Handheld Hi-Res mode, letting you take 50mp or 25mp images (from the 20mp sensor), without the need of a tripod. The E-M1X is available now, body only at £2799.99.

Olympus OM-D E-M1X Features

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X's most noticable features can be seen in the camera design, with the look and styling of a full-frame professional body, DSLR. This makes the camera large for a Micro Four Thirds camera, but it is also smaller than professional body DSLRs, such as the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II, and Nikon D5

Another new feature of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X is a built-in "ND filter", which can be switched on, with settings of ND2, ND4, ND8, ND16, ND32 (1EV - 5EV).
