OLYMPUS’ third OM-D camera is not just about still images but moving pictures too. The second E-M5 adds features to appeal to budding videographers, including five-axis optical stabilisation for a Steadicam-like effect, five video frame rates, and an articulated touchscreen that can be used for more than mere selfies. The 16.1-megapixel Micro Four Thirds camera also adds wi-fi connectivity, a 1/8000th second shutter speed, sharper electronic viewfinder, and improved shooting speed of five photos per second, all of which should appeal to fans of the system. It is 41g heavier and snaps fewer photos per charge, but the second E-M5 is a desirable package.
