Absolute Confidence.

  • World-best technologies
  • Professional handling
  • Reliability and mobility
  • Camera Grand Prix 2019 "Readers Award"

The E-M1X delivers the absolute confidence every photographer comes to expect with a professional camera. It perfectly meets the needs of true professionals: excellent handling, class-leading capture and recording technologies, and a system for assignments anywhere in the world, any time of year. The innovative technology and features have been engineered to take the game a level higher: On the outside, the integrated vertical grip gives photogaphers instant flexibility and mirrors the horizontal grip for intuitive operation, including the Multi Selector joystick. While the world’s best dust/splashproof sealing* makes a rain cover obsolete. On the inside, a range of autofocus options and the world’s best image stabilisation**, which has also been specially engineered for filmmaking, deliver the high-res picture quality and precision essential for photo shoots. Videographers also have in the E-M1X a tool for recording life in superb C4K. *Based on the IEC standard 60529, paired with M.Zuiko water-resistant lens, as of 1/2019 **Based on the CIPA standard, within system cameras, when the E-M1X is paired with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12–100mm F4 IS PRO lens, as of 1/2019

When using the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12‑40mm f2.8 Pro

Maximum sequential shooting speed may be affected by several factors including lens used, brightness, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO setting.

When ISO is 8000 or above, 30 fps becomes the maximum sequential shooting speed. The actual shooting speed may become slower than the set shooting speed by a few frames per second. When using ISO Bracketing, performance will be affected at ISO 2000 or above.
