Reasons For

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II
20 Reasons For
2% Higher Megapixels
The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 0.2MP higher than the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II (16.1MP).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

The 16 megapixel E-M1 is the company's top micro four thirds camera. It has a 2.36 megapixel electronic viewfinder, dual contrast and phase detection auto focus, five axis sensor-shift stabilisation and built-in Wi-Fi with remote control from a smart...
We tested the E 1 with the new 1240mm constant aperture 2.8 Pro lens, which in itself is a masterpiece of mechanics and optics
Focus is lightning fast and images are excellent for sharpness, resolution and colour fidelity
The camera feels like a unit
We tried to find fault, but there is nothing we dislike about the E 1

Key Features

Megapixels

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

GPS (satellite)

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
