Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Announced
Olympus has just announced the brand new OM-D E-M10 Mark II mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. The previous E-M10 is Olympus' entry-level interchangeable lens camera, and the E-M10 Mark II brings some new features from more sophisticated models down into this more budget-friendly camera.
Olympus mirrorless cameras have become extremely popular with underwater photo and video shooters by delivering high-quality images in a compact size, and the OM-D E-M10 Mark II is sure to create further appeal. Several housing brands are available to suit different budgets, while a range of kit and pro lenses ensure the right compositions, whether topside, in the pool or in the ocean.
New for the O-MD E-M10 Mark II
The most important update for the E-M10 Mark II is the upgrade to the Olympus 5-axis image stabilization system (previously only available in high-end OM-D cameras). This in-camera stabilization technology allows for less camera shake at slow shutter speeds as well as smoother video.
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II kit also comes with a new kit lens - the Olympus 14-42mm EZ lens.
