The World’s Most Advanced Image Stabilisation Puts You on Top of Your Shot. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II.

The 5-axis VCM image stabilisation, which powerfully compensates for any type of camera shake, has improved. Not only has it achieved the world's highest[1]compensation performance of 5 shutter speed steps for still images, but image stabilisation for movies has also significantly improved. The dustproof and splashproof construction, hailed as absolutely reliable by many pro photographers, is now also freezeproof for even better reliability under the harshest of conditions. This incredibly mobile body is packed with the latest technologies, including OM-D Movie for cinema-quality, hand-held interchangeable lens camera shooting, and the world's shortest[2] shooting time lag, made possible by super-fast autofocusing. Furthermore, a firmware upgrade will be made available to incorporate the latest functions and performance, and to keep the E-M5 Mark II in top condition. The incredibly high performance and excellent mobility the E-M5 Mark II provides opens doors to new shooting experiences.
