First pictures: om-d e-m5 mark ii

The om-d e-m5 mark ii follows the first om-d of 2012. Like the process, it works with a 16 megapixel sensor in the four thirds format (17.3 mm × 13.0 mm). The sensor is supported by the current truepic vii processor, which is also found in the gross sister e-m1. This also comes with the livecomposite function known from e-m10 and e-m1 for multiple exposures into the e-m5 series.

But olympus has completely redesigned the top of the small mirror-elastic micro-four thirds camera (mft) and thus brought it closer to the greater sister e-m1. Thus, two different settings can now also be assigned two different settings – they then control either exposure time and aperture or iso sensitivity or female adjustment.

We show each recording quasi twice: picture one is the overall picture in a system-related maximum resolution of 2000 × 1335 pixels in one of our system. This representation is used for the fast view of the subject on the internet, not to assess the image quality. This is better with picture two, where we show a 100 percent image section from the first photo. Both pictures together already provide a first impression within the image sections, which image quality brings the camera lens combination among the respective conditions.
