Have you ever heard of an OM-D EM-10? If yes, then you must know that it was the cheapest Olympus interchangeable lens camera, best known for their classic look and feel. Now the Japanese company has introduced the Olympus Mirrorless Camera E-M10 Mark II.
Improved specs of Mark II:
The Olympus Mirrorless Camera E-M10 Mark II has a 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor coupled with a TruePic VII image processor. The camera comes with 3-inch (tilting) LCD and the company has added five-axis image stabilization feature in the camera. Mark II has 2.36-million-dot OLED EVF (electronic viewfinder,) which is nearly twice as sharp as the previous version of the camera.
ISO settings in the mirrorless camera can reach up to 25,600, while shutter speeds range from 1/4000 of a second to one minute. The company has added a continuous shooting capability that can snap 8.5 frames per second. The camera comes with an image sensor dust reduction system and also supports SD cards.
New features in the Olympus Mirrorless Camera E-M10 Mark II that arouse our curiosity:
There are two new features in the camera that arouse our curiosity for it: 4K time-lapses and Live Composition. The former feature takes 4K-resolution photos and turns them into a time-lapse video and the latter lets you take long-exposure photos, and watch them developing in real-time.
So, the Olympus Mirrorless Camera E-M10 Mark II does not shoot video in 4K resolution (only up to 1080p at 24p, 25p, 30p, 50p and 60p resolutions. If you want, you can also shoot slow-motion videos at 120 frames per second, but at a resolution of 640 x 480 (resolution is too low). However, our sources who have their hands on the camera praised about the photos taken in low-light situations.
What is the cost of Olympus Mark II?
The Olympus Mirrorless Camera E-M10 Mark II will be rolled out in September and will cost you nearly $700 for just the body and if you want to buy with a 14-42mm EZ lens then it will cost $900.
