The Olympus OM-D E-M1 raised the bar in terms of what we should expect from a pro-quality Micro Four Thirds camera. It was solid, extremely well designed and engineered, and it performed as advertised. The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II shares all of these commendable attributes and more. The new Olympus is fast enough to freeze almost anything that flies past your lens. With the camera’s electronic shutter in S-AF Mode, you can capture 20MP RAW at up to 60 fps, 18 fps in C-AF Tracking Mode, or 15 fps with the mechanical shutter engaged in mechanical mode.

The top mechanical shutter speed is 1/8000-second or a ridiculously fast 1/32,000-second in electronic mode. In a nutshell, there isn’t a lot you can’t freeze in its tracks with this camera.

The hybrid autofocus system has also undergone an overhaul, now sporting 121 focus points (an increase from 81). It’s fast and accurate, even in low light, which jives nicely with the camera’s high speed shooting skills. Should you want to shoot tricky, fast moving subjects, the E-M1 II is a tool fit for the job.

Five-axis image stabilization delivers a 5.5-stop advantage to better guarantee sharp imagery when shooting handheld under low lighting conditions.

While the E-M1 Mark II’s LCD has the same specs as on the original model – 3″ with 1.04 million dots – it’s now fully articulating, rather than tilting. The eyecup is also a good size and keeps light from entering for those of us with glasses.

Other advanced imaging features include a Silent Shooting mode, Focus Bracketing and Stacking, which greatly expands depth-of-field possibilities when shooting at close or macro focusing distances.

To better ensure you don’t run out of memory in the middle of a take, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II features dual SD-series card slots that can be managed to complement your shooting habits. For tethered shooting, Olympus Capture software enables seamless shooting via a USB 3.0 Type C port.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II also captures 4K (3840 x 2160) and C4K (4096 x 2160) video at maximum bit rates of up to 237 Mbps. Stills and video are recorded on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards and processed by Olympus’s latest-generation TruePic VIII Dual Quad Core Processor.

The OM-D E-M1 Mark II’s splash-, dust-, and freeze-proof magnesium-alloy body weighs a tad over 21 ounces and is hermetically sealed against the weather and less-than-friendly environments.

ISO is from Low (ISO64) ISO 200- ISO 25600

Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to share images to compatible devices via the Olympus O.I. Share app. Great for when you’re travelling! You can also control the camera remotely and add Geotag information to your images.

Not many cameras come with a compact external flash (known as the FL-LM3) but this one does! It can tilt upward by 90 degrees and rotate by 180 degrees in either direction. The flash has a guide number of 9m at ISO 100 and can be used to control groups of external flashes wirelessly. An external flash can also be used via the flash sync port located on the front-right of the body.

Olympus has fitted a bigger battery compared to the E-M1. This might frustrate some who were hoping to re-use batteries on the newer model, but trust us – it’s a worthwhile upgrade. Not only is the battery capacity increased by 37% (and CIPA rating has jumped from 350 to 440 shots from the E-M1 to the E-M1 II), but the new charger will recharge the battery in 50% less time as well. There’s also a much more accurate percentage battery display when you’re shooting, to better help you gauge when it’s time to swap out.
