E-M1 Body
Based on the Micro Four Thirds standard the E-M1 is the most advanced camera ever produced and raises the OM-D system to a whole new level. The first ever dust-, splash- and freezeproof OM-D camera delivers outstanding image quality and performance in a compact and superior size. Build to outperform DSLR cameras, the E-M1 has perfect dimensions but yet a smaller size than DSLR cameras. With its portable weight it gives you more freedom to take all the shots you want, with all the image quality you expect. Experience the world of superior photography with vivid images thanks to sophisticated technology like the True Pic VII image processor, DUAL FAST AF and extended WiFi controls. With the newest extended WiFi capabilities you now have access to more creative control from your smartphone - set to revolutionize the way you take pictures. Engineered to empower your creativity and enhance your shooting accuracy we have built an Electronic Viewfinder for the E-M1 that gives you a larger view even than your average DSLR camera, razor sharp resolution and magnification of max. 1.48x. MMF-3 adapter required to use Four Thirds lenses.
