Taking the Micro Four-Thirds platform into new territory, Olympus introduced the OM-D E-M1X as a high-grade ultra-fast digital camera that takes full advantage of its mirrorless design to excel at action photography. The first dual-grip mirrorless body makes this camera usable for extended periods in either traditional landscape or portrait orientation with efficient controls replicated on both grips: EC, ISO, 8-way focus joystick and, of course, dual control-dials.
Neocamera took this new powerhouse through its paces in our in-depth review of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X. Read it to find out how it performs and how usable its design is. Included is a demonstration of the most capable image-stabilization system yet, a 5-axis sensor-shift mechanism that can correct for up to 7-stops over hand-holding. The E-M1X also offers an improved super-resolution mode that allows this Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless to produce 50 MP images which are then compared against a true 50 MP digital camera.
The Olympus OM-D E-M1X offers a huge feature-set similar to previous flagship mirrorless cameras yet this model adds more stamina and processing power. Its hybrid shutter allows for 60 FPS continuous shooting in electronic mode and 15 FPS in mechanical mode. The new dual TruePic VII processors allow continuous AF and AE to be performed at 18 FPS while providing a blackout-free view with virtually no lag in the viewfinder. This 2.4 MP 0.5″ EVF offers the largest magnification outside of Medium Format, showing a wide bright and detailed view at 0.83X magnification. A deep memory buffer and dual SDXC memory-card slots which support UHS-II allow this camera to shoot long bursts at high speed.
