Olympus E-M1X camera specifications (short version)
High-speed performance and excellent image quality
Speed and image quality of the new E-M1X are fueled by a 20.4 MP Live MOS sensor with a new coating in order to deliver improved sensitivity as well as two TruPicVIII high-speed image processors improving fundamental performance factors such as start-up time and recovery time from sleep mode. The dual processor design not only contributes to a faster camera, but also allows the support of two high-speed UHS-II SD card slots and enables the latest shooting functions such as Handheld High Res Shot, Live ND, and Intelligent Subject Detection AF.
Advanced Image Stabilisation
Olympus have introduced a redeveloped gyro sensor – the camera allows for the world’s best compensation performance. In combination with a M.Zuiko IS PRO lens, this technology enables the 5-axis sync IS to compensate for approx. 7.5 shutter speed steps1, eliminating the need for a tripod and enabling free-hand shooting in various conditions.
With locked AF, the E-M1X features high-speed sequential shooting at a maximum of 60 fps to capture split-second moments that the human eye cannot see. With AF/AE tracking, a maximum of 18 fps may be reached. The camera’s Pro Capture Mode records up to 35 frames retroactively from when the shutter button is released during shooting.
High-Res Shot functionality
In addition to high-resolution maximum 80 MP images that can be captured in Tripod High Res Shot, a Handheld High Res Shot functionality is now available on the OM-D E-M1X: designed for photographers who don’t want to be limited by using a tripod, this function generates a single high-resolution shot equal to that captured with a 50 MP sensor – without any signs of blur caused by handshake.
Live ND functionality
A new Live ND functionality incorporates slow shutter speed effects as though using an ND filter. The scene can be reviewed in the viewfinder and the effect edited before users take the photo. Effects can be set in five levels: ND2 (equivalent to one shutter speed step), ND4 (2 steps), ND8 (3 steps), ND16 (4 steps), and ND32 (5 steps).
In addition to professional-quality photos, the new E-M1X is a master at movie-making. It features all the extras videographers need to capture moments as they happen. With the ultra-high Cinema 4K (C4K, 4096 x 2160) movie format, videographers not only have the highest recording resolution to date, but also more flexibility when it comes to post production. 120 fps high-speed movies are also now supported in Full HD resulting in the capability to shoot cinematic movies with slow-motion perception.
The powerful 5-axis IS and electronic stabilization enable refined handheld 4K and C4K video recording with three selectable levels of movement compensation depending on the photographer’s posture and movement.
To counteract changing lighting conditions typical during documentary and nature shooting, the E-M1X supports log shooting. OM-Log400 delivers movies without loss of details in shadows or highlight blowouts, and greater freedom over video creativity through colour grading.
Anti-flicker shooting feature
With an anti-flicker shooting feature, the camera detects the flicker frequency of artificial light sources and activates the shutter at peak brightness to minimize uneven exposures and coloring between sequential frames (via PR). Flicker scan suppresses striped patterns that can occur when using Silent Mode (electronic shutter) and when shooting movies, so that users can fine tune the shutter speed.
A new Wi-Fi capture allows tethered shooting without a cable and makes it possible to transfer images wirelessly to a computer with the “Olympus Capture” camera control software.
The OM-D E-M1X contains a built-in GPS sensor, temperature sensor, manometer and compass, collectively known as ‘field sensors’. In addition to location information such as longitude and latitude, these sensors detect and record the temperature, elevation, and direction of the camera for adding detailed shooting information to images.
Body (WxHxD) 144.4 x 146.8 x 75.4mm
Effective Resolution 20.4 megapixels
Continuous Shooting Speed 18 fps
The Olympus E-M1X features world class image stabilisation and stand out new capabilities including 50mp Hi-Res Shot handheld with new built-in ND filters. A new vertical grip houses two batteries for extended use and a deep finger rest for both horizontal and vertical positions gives a more comfortable grip. New twin processors take high-speed performance to another level for both image processing and a re-developed intelligent autofocus system. The magnesium alloy body is fully IPX1 weather resistance tested.

Horizontal position and vertical position realized high holding ability In
response to the demand of professional users who place importance on holding properties and operability at the time of shooting, we adopted a vertical position grip integrated structure. Both the horizontal position and the vertical position adopt a grip that is deep in the finger scales to improve the holding ability and realize ergonomic property that is less fatigue even in long-time shooting.
High-speed continuous shooting at 20 frames / full pixel, 60 frames / second in RAW recording High-speed continuous shooting of
up to about 60 frames / second enables you to capture the moment that can not be grasped with the naked eye with high definition. Besides, high-speed continuous shooting of 60 frames / second, high-speed continuous shooting of up to about 18 frames / second following AF / AE are shooting with silence, and performances that do not want to emit shutter sounds, and it is quite useful in the scene, such as do not want to interfere with the centralized sports
Emphasis on the operation of the viewfinder shooting
arrangement and shape of the buttons and levers, it renewed the height, realize the operation of being able to concentrate on more viewfinder shooting Did. Furthermore, a multi selector which can quickly move the focus area while looking through the viewfinder is arranged in each of the vertical position and the horizontal position. In addition to providing a new “C-LOCK” lever, you can lock not only the vertical position control but also the selected operating section.
High magnification, high speed viewfinder
viewfinder has newly designed its optical system and realizes the industry’s top class finder magnification of 0.83 (* 35 mm format conversion). Moreover, it is clearly displayed to the four corners without distortion by the four-piece composition using an aspherical lens or glass with a high refractive index. Like the “OM – D E – M1 Mark II”, it achieves a high – speed frame rate of 120 fps (progressive method), a display time lag of only 0.005 seconds, and captures moving subjects without stress.
Further evolved robustness and reliability
“OM – D E – M1X” has been developed to allow shooting even in harsh environments where professional photographers will meet, conducting an internal drip – proof test that is stricter than IPX 1 I will. You can shoot without the influence of the weather by realizing dustproof, drip-proof, low temperature resistance (-10 ° C) even when the cable is connected to the remote cable, microphone and headphone jack. Moreover, by adopting a new coating for SSWF (super sonic wave filter via Photo Rumors) which vibrates more than 30,000 times / second to remove dirt and dust, the possibility of dust and dust reflection in the photograph is reduced to 1/10 compared to the conventional It is. A heat dissipation structure that suppresses function limitation due to temperature rise at high load such as movie shooting and continuous shooting in the scorching sun and 400,000 times shutter life realize robustness and high reliability for professional photographers with peace of mind It is.
The cartridge type
loading system which can insert two lithium ion batteries “BLH – 1” adopted from the cartridge type battery loading system “OM – D E – M1 Mark II” is carried. Approximately 870 shots are possible (* CIPA test standard, about 2,580 in Olympus measurement in low power consumption shooting mode), battery exchange is easy even with a single leg or tripod attached. In addition, it is compatible with the USB PD (Power Delivery) standard, enabling power supply from USBPD standard power supply of maximum 100 W. It is also possible to charge the two “BLH-1” loaded in the body at the fastest about 2 hours.
The multi selector
“OM – D E – M1X” which can quickly move the AF area has AF multi selector which can move the AF area quickly while looking through the viewfinder in each of the vertical and horizontal positions.Movement of AF area during continuous shooting and movie shooting is also smooth.
121 points with high degree of freedom in composition Comprehensive 121 point all-cross image plane phase difference AF sensor established with the all-cross image plane phase difference AF sensor
“OM – D E – M1 Mark II” continues to be adopted, accurate with various composition Focusing with high degree of freedom can be performed. As a feature of Olympus’s image plane phase difference AF, you can quickly follow the speed change of irregularly moving subjects and subjects by using AF information not only from live view images but also from captured images. The AF low brightness limit realizes -6.0 EV (equivalent to ISO 100) when F1.2 lens is installed, and focuses on dark scenes and low contrast subjects with high precision.
Various AF settings are possible
Vertical / Horizontal Position You can set the AF target mode and AF area position for each shooting, and C – AF + M, which can instantly switch the MF by turning the focus ring during C – AF, Various AF settings according to the professional photographer’s needs are possible. The AF target mode also supports a new 25 point group target, and also has a custom AF target mode that allows AF area to be placed freely.
“Pro capture mode” for RAW shooting, no blackout, “Pro Capture mode”
which can record up to 35 frames from the time of shutter release can be recorded backwards, there is no blackout (image loss) at shooting, 20M high Recording with pixels, and also shooting in RAW mode are supported. Ever since its incorporation in “OM – D E – M1 Mark II”, it is also highly valuable from professional photographers and it is effective when photographing subjects with unpredictable movements as “works”.
Two high-speed image processing engine “TruePic VIII” installed
Reduced startup time and sleep recovery time, both SD card slots realize high speed response such as high-speed UHS-II support. In addition to contributing to speedup of cameras, we realized state-of-the-art shooting functions such as “handheld high res shot”, “live ND”, “intelligent subject recognition AF”.
Landscape photographer realized long-awaited “hand held high
reso shot” In addition to “tripod high res shot” capable of shooting ultrahigh resolution images of up to 80 M, “new handheld high res shot” specially requested from landscape photographers is newly installed did. High resolution images can be captured on hand, making it especially useful for high-definition photography in places where there are many mountain landscapes and tripods that can not be used.
which can express expression using slow shutter effect “Live ND” which can express expression using slow shutter effect like using ND filter was installed. It is a new technology that can obtain slow shutter effect by combining multiple exposed images. In addition, you can check the slow shutter effect with the viewfinder before shooting by live view, and you can improve the shooting efficiency.The effect can be selected from 5 stages of ND 2 (equivalent to 1 shutter speed), ND 4 (2 steps), ND 8 (3 steps), ND 16 (4 steps), ND 32 (5 steps).
Can capture 4K and 4K cinema
powerfully Strong 5-axis camera shake correction + electronic camera shake compensation enables high-quality 4K, cinema 4K movie handheld shooting. The camera shake compensation intensity can be selected from 3 levels according to the attitude and movement of the photographer.
