Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Black Digital Camera with 14-42mm EZ Lens Kit
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 II is a Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera that takes the best features of its more expensive siblings and brings the price down to Earth. They include a time-tested 16MP CMOS sensor, 5-axis image stabilization, a top-notch viewfinder, and Wi-Fi.
The OM-D E-M10 II is the follow-up to the E-M10, which was introduced in January 2014. To keep the E-M10's price down, Olympus had to cut out several of the most notable OM-D features, including 5-axis image stabilization and weather-sealing. That said, it also had some features not yet found on the more expensive OM-Ds, like a new image processor, higher resolution LCD, and Wi-Fi.
The next entry-level OM-D has arrived - not surprisingly called the E-M10 II - which is a nice evolution of its already impressive predecessor. While the sensor and the image processor remain unchanged, the E-M10 II gains 5-axis image stabilization, a larger, higher resolution EVF, 60p video recording, a 4K time-lapse mode, and quite a bit more.
The E-M10 II finds itself in a market with some very strong competitors, including the Fujifilm X-T10, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7, and Sony a6000 mirrorless cameras, as well as the Canon EOS Rebel T6i and Nikon D5500 DSLRs. Given it's OM-D heritage, we have a good idea as to what to expect from the E-M10 II, which means it should keep up with its peers.
Sporting a classic design and sleek form factor, the black OM-D E-M10 Mark II from Olympus is a mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital camera featuring refined stills and movie recording capabilities to suit working in a variety of day-to-day environments. A high-resolution 16.1MP 4/3 Live MOS sensor pairs with the TruePic VII image processor to facilitate up to 8.5 fps shooting and full HD 1080p/60 movie recording, with a top sensitivity of ISO 25600. In-camera 5-axis image stabilization compensates for up to 4 stops of camera shake to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions and a FAST AF system employs 81 contrast-detection areas for quick, accurate performance with dedicated subject tracking modes. The retro-themed body incorporates a range of assignable function buttons and dials, as well as a 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and 3.0" 1.04m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD for clear image monitoring and playback. Besides the handsome appeal of the E-M10 Mark II's design, its main assets lie in its versatility of shooting functions and performance to benefit photographers and videographers alike.
Benefited by the range of imaging capabilities, the E-M10 Mark II also incorporates a variety of shooting modes to suit working in various situations. A Silent Mode utilizes an electronic shutter for perfectly quiet picture-taking, with shutter speeds up to 1/16,000 sec. available. Live Bulb and Live Time modes are well-suited to creative long exposure photography and a dedicated Live Composite mode lets you watch a long exposure gradually build up during the course of the shot. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to pair the camera with your smartphone or tablet for wireless sharing and remote camera control, and an interval shooting mode can be used to produce in-camera 4K time lapse movies.
