New Olympus E-M1X Tests and Reviews

By on

Here are the new Olympus E-M1X tests and reviews.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X is a new professional Micro Four Thirds camera offering enhanced reliability and performance. The OM-D E-M1X features a 20.4 megapixel Live MOS sensor, Cinema 4K movie recording, 18fps burst shooting with AF/AE tracking with world’s best image stabilization.

The E-M1X is the largest, heaviest and toughest camera in the Micro Four Thirds system to date, measuring 144x147x75mm and weighing 997g with its two battery packs fitted. Check out the latest tests and reviews below.

FromePhotozine verdict

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X offers a fully featured, full-size, fully weather-sealed camera, with dual memory card slots, 400,000 shutter life rating, a long warranty, and more features than you could possibly want. There’s battery life to compete with DSLRs, with 870 shots on standard settings, or up to 2580 shots with power saving switched on. High-speed shooting and great image quality make this large camera something for serious photographers who may travel in less than ideal conditions, although the menu system continues to complicate use.


From TechRadar review:

Like its predecessor, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X is (along with its lenses) a fraction of the size, weight and price of professional DSLR counterparts. It has more megapixels, can shoot medium format-sized images, has faster burst rates, unmatched image stabilisation, more robust weather proofing… its specs blow the pro bodies out of the water, and it offers more features than any other mirrorless camera. 

It’s a very niche, pro-oriented camera, but pro shooters have a serious new contender to consider. And Olympus just proved that Micro Four Thirds is here to stay. 

From Cameralabs review:

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X is a beefed-up EM1 Mark II, repackaging its 20 Megapixel sensor, 4k movies and 18fps bursts into a larger and tougher body with an integrated portrait grip, twin batteries, field sensors, improved autofocus tracking, USB power and even better built-in stabilisation. The result is a camera that can confidently handle action and wildlife shooting while shrugging-off cold, wet or dusty environments. The stabilisation is remarkably good, letting me handhold 8 second exposures or film at 600mm without wobbles. Indeed the E-M1X is all about achieving the kind of results handheld that would normally require a tripod or gimbal, which coupled with the mobility of a smaller sensor system makes for a more portable kit you’d be happier to lug across a sports field or especially into the backcountry.
