OLYM­PUS

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS -

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.
