A 20M Live MOS sensor. Zuiko lenses with a rich, 80-years history. The TruePic VII image processor which brings out the best performance of the sensor and lenses. An advanced, in-body 5-axis image stabilisation system. All of these combine to provide top-class interchangeable-lens-camera image quality in any type of shooting condition.
This camera is equipped with a 20M Live MOS sensor. The low-pass filterless sensor enables high resolution. Low sensitivity ISO LOW mode is expanded from the traditional ISO 100 to ISO 80 equivalent. High sensitivity shooting is supported up to ISO 25600. The image processor optimally tuned to match the sensor makes clear, high quality images with minimal noise possible.
This model is equipped with in-body 5-axis image stabilisation that compensates for all types of camera shake. Its compensation performance is equivalent to a world’s best 5 shutter speed steps ,making it possible to capture high-quality, sharp, hand-held snapshots even in dark locations. Because it is built into the camera body, even older lenses without electronic contacts can make use of this feature. The viewfinder image stops shaking when you press the shutter button halfway, providing stable framing for shooting.
The camera body is equipped with a function to register information for up to 10 lenses that are not equipped with electronic contacts. You can access information for registered lenses and select those settings so that lens information such as name, focal length, aperture value, etc., are recorded in EXIF information.
This camera is equipped with the TruePic VII image processor. TruePic VII optimises sharpness according to the optical characteristics of the attached lens and aperture (f number) value, performs high-precision demosaicing optimised for the low-pass filter less sensor, and features Fine Detail II that reduces false colours. It brings out the potential of lenses to achieve sharpness and high resolution. Olympus-original Real Colour Technology creates accurate representation of colours that are thought to be difficult to represent such as emerald green and yellow.
This camera is equipped with 50M High Res Shot for situations where a higher resolution photo is required, such as when shooting works of art or scenery. The camera moves the sensor in half-pixel increments while capturing eight shots, which are then used to generate a single high-resolution shot equal to that captured with a 50M sensor. This feature is highly effective when used with the excellent resolving power of the M.Zuiko PRO and M.Zuiko Premium lenses.
