Olympus OM-D E-M1X Mirrorless Camera

Olympus is a name that’s synonymous with quality offerings, and ever since 1968, the renowned camera company has been helping photographers everywhere to realize their vision. As times change and the market grows more technologically adept, so too must the flagship products of the industry’s biggest names — and with the OM-D E-M1X, Olympus’ newest offering in the mirrorless realm, the brand shows that “being on trend” isn’t always the most beneficial plan.

While the Big 3 (Canon, Sony, and Nikon) have been focusing on bolstering their full-frame mirrorless lineups, Olympus has decided to take a step back from the rat race to utilize their time elsewhere — predominately, in the micro four-thirds space. The E-M1X looks to fill the void left by other manufacturers in the battle for the full-frame throne by introducing a lateral variant of their iconic M1 Mark II, opting for additional features that are aimed toward a professional audience. The new mirrorless camera will utilize a 20.4-megapixel sensor with an 18fps shooting speed and an innovative five-axis gyro that boasts the “world’s highest image stabilization,” alongside 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation that make filming without gimbals and other stabilizers more viable. A larger silhouette with room for vertical and portrait orientations will accompany the new release, offering the ability to double up on battery capacity, and boosting the shot count of the camera to roughly 870 captures (with nearly 170 minutes of video use). The micro four-thirds sensor is perfect for photographers who want to retain fast 121 cross-type phase-detection autofocus capabilities and high-speed subject detection, all with a considerable buffer — and if you happen to be a video guy, don’t fret — the E-M1X will feature 4K shooting (at 30fps), and full HD (at a buttery smooth 120fps), for all the aspiring filmmakers out there.
