Olympus E-M1II hands-on videos and reviews


First look of the mirrorless camera posted by ThePhoBlographer. As usual Mobile01 website posted their test results.

From Robin Wong test :

From my review testing sessions, I found that the E-M1 Mark II (in comparison to the older 2013 E-M1) has better image stabilization capabilities, improved continuous AF performance, more comfortable camera handling and most importantly new 20MP image sensor and Truepic 8 processing engine that deliver greater image quality. If you are looking for a high performing mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, I strongly believe Olympus OM-D E-M1 is quite a tough choice to beat at this moment!

So what are the improvements over its predecessor? The camera offers a faster processor, 20.4MP sensor with 121 phase-detection AF points and a stabilization system with a 6.5 stops of shake correction. The high-end MILC sports a truly fast 60 fps continuous shooting rate with an electronic shutter, 18 fps with continuous autofocus, and 15 fps with a mechanical shutter.
