The E-M5 packs a much-improved 16MP effort that shoots exceptional photos right through the ISO range. Even low-light shots at ISO 25,600 are quite usable. The 1080p video is excellent, too.</p> <p>The E-M5’s electronic viewfinder is bright and clear, with a sensor that activates it as soon as it detects your eye. Meanwhile, the crisp OLED screen can be tilted up or down, which really comes in handy when you’re snapping over the top of a crowd or surreptitiously shooting from the hip, reportage-style.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Olympus OM-D E-M5" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M5" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/olympus-om-d-oled-screen_0_0.jpg?1372358385" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> quick lock </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Olympus claims that the E-M5 has the world’s fastest autofocus, and we’re not doubting it. It’s nippier to lock on than any other system cam out there, including the lightning-fast Nikon V1, and focusing is accurate too. Combined with the 9fps continuous shooting, you’re almost guaranteed to get the shot that you’re after.</p> <p>A small camera no longer means limited shooting options – the variety of Micro Four Thirds lenses is getting impressive. They range from this versatile 12-50mm motor-zoom right to the extraordinary Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95.

In Live Time mode, you press the shutter button for a long exposure and watch the image forming on the screen. Press again when you’ve got your desired picture. The results are frequently amazing.</p> <p>This is the also first camera to stabilise the sensor on five axes. While most cams only compensate for pitch and yaw tilting movements, the E-M5 also corrects for&nbsp;roll and movement left, right, up and down. Never mind the science – it really works.</p> <p>Turn the mode dial to Art for a choice of 11 creative filters including ‘Key Line’, which makes everything look a bit comic book, and the grainy black and white effect you see above. Set to ‘Art Bracket’ and it’ll save 11 shots, one with each effect applied.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Olympus OM-D E-M5" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M5" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/olympus-om-d-live-bulb-mode_0_0.jpg?1372358385" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> stills </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 9 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> video </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 9 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> build </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 9 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> features </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 9 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Astounding in almost every way, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 &nbsp;sets the standard for compact system cameras</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disabled </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/olympus-om-d-e-m5 </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/olympus-om-d-e-m5/review#comments Olympus OM-D E-M5 System Cameras Tue, 12 Jun 2012 14:30:32 +0000 Sophie Charara 421528 at http://www.stuff.tv
