OM-D Movie: Cinema-quality Handheld Videos

OM-D Movie capability provides powerful image stabilisation for handheld cinema-quality 4K video recording. The E-M1X also features OM-Log mode, providing a flat colour profile for shooting and post production colour grading for videographers.

Dust, splash, and freeze proof construction

Highly reliable dust, splash and freeze proof weather sealing of the E-M1X is also great for shooting video. Even when cables are connected to the microphone and headphone terminals the weather sealing is maintained, allowing you to shoot with the need of a rain cover and stay nimble while shooting.

Handheld 4K and Cinema 4K shooting

In addition to the powerful 5-axis in-body image stabilisation the E-M1X has dedicated video electronic stabilisation for handheld 4K and Cinema 4K (C4K) shooting. The image stabilisation strength has three levels to allow the photographer flexibility to match their position and movement.
