Review Olympus OM-D E-M1

Review Olympus OM-D E-M1

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is a very interesting and functional camera, the second camera in the Olympus 'OM-D' lineup, introduced on September 10, 2013.

The E-M1 features the design of the old Olympus OM series film cameras. Externally, the E-M1 looks just wonderful. The camera body is completely made of magnesium alloy, it is dust and moisture resistant, as well as frost protection. Indeed, I shot several days in the cold at '-10 ° C' without any problems. The camera is comfortable to hold in hand, part of the body is covered with special rubber inserts.

The E-M1 has well thought out controls, I really liked that many buttons and dials can be programmed to suit your habits and preferences. Moreover, the setting of the disk functions can be performed separately for each of the modes. P, A, S, M.

The main dial for selecting shooting modes has a special latch button that can prevent accidental change of shooting mode. The latch may be on or off.

Near the camera mount there are two programmable buttons that are initially responsible for viewing depth of field and quick settings white balance on a white sheet. Two FN buttons, both dials, REC buttons and a dedicated switch are also programmable.

The camera has a 3-inch (1.036.800 pixels) hinged touch screen display. There is no full touch control via the display. It surprises me a bit why it was necessary to make a touch display with which you can use only a few useful functions. Control via the touch screen cannot be compared with a full multi-touch screen, for example, installed in Canon 650Dwhere the camera perceives and performs any touch to the display. For me personally, the convenience of the touch screen was manifested only in the quick selection of the focus point and turning over the shot material.

In addition to the main display, there is also a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVI) by 2.3 million points, almost the same as external EVI VF-4. EVI gives 1.48x magnification and has 100% frame coverage. The camera automatically switches between JVI и EVI. However, when the camera goes into sleep mode, it takes about one second to EVI activated again at this time EVI it just doesn’t show anything, and the photographer can miss the moment he needs.

The basis of the E-M1 is a 16 MP matrix with crop factor Kf = 2X. The camera can take pictures with a maximum size of 4608 x 3456. The same Live MOS Sensor can be found in models E-p5, E-PL5, E-PM2, E-PL6 and the OM-D series E-M5 and E-M10, but different image processing algorithms and different low-pass filters may cause differences in image quality from these cameras. The E-M1 does not have an AA filter, making it easy to capture sharp images with great detail.

E-M1 can work in the range ISO-100 25600but actually ISO 100 and all ISO values ​​are higher 5000 are extended values. Usually, other manufacturers at least honestly call the ISO limit values ​​an extended range and instead of ISO 25.600 write some kind of analogue, for example, ISO 'Hi 1'. In fact, the high ISO noise level of the E-M1 leaves much to be desired and is sometimes inferior to many amateur APS-C DSLRs, not to mention the APS format. This is due to the small physical size of the E-M1 sensor.

The E-M1 has an advanced focusing system. The focusing system is special - in addition to focusing by contrast, it also includes phase sensors located directly on the camera matrix.

Focusing is accurate and fast and has just a huge amount of all kinds of settings.

For myself, I noted that the focusing tenacity of the E-M1 is still inferior to DSLRs with phase focusing. The E-M1 is really fast and accurate in focusing, but in some cases, it takes more time to aim, especially in difficult situations where the camera 'drives' focus back and forth. Compared to DSLR cameras, the E-M1 greatly benefits from covering the frame with focus points (zones) and focusing when shooting video :)

Olympus FL-LM2

Included Olympus FL-LM2

Comes with a small camera external flash Olympus FL-LM2. Unlike classic external flashes, which require only the contacts of an external shoe, FL-LM2 uses a special connector for operation. To install the flash, you need to remove the special lock from it, remove the plug of the camera shoe and remove the special fuse on the camera connector. To take off the last, I fussed about 5 minutes.

A distinctive feature of the E-M1 is its excellent integrated stabilization system. The camera stabilizer is very good, and you can use cheaper lenses without a stabilizer. In the menu, you can very flexibly adjust the stabilization system, as well as the priority of this when using lenses that also have a stabilizer.

Sample photo Olympus OM-D E-M1

Example photo on Olympus OM-D E-M1

The stabilization function also works great with manual lenses and has a number of its own specific settings.

I would like to share one specific feature of the E-M1 stabilizer. When the camera is turned off, the sensor, which is suspended by the stabilization system, knocks quite noticeably in the middle of the camera when it shakes slightly. One gets the feeling that something has broken in the middle of the camera body. But when I took off the lens and slightly shook the camera, I immediately saw how the matrix, suspended by the stabilization system, “floats” and at the same time can slightly tap. There is no tapping when the camera is on.

Another amazing indicator of the camera is the huge burst speed, which can reach 10 frames per second. This is a great indicator. And it’s very, very nice that frame buffer E-M1 is very capacious... In RAW format, the buffer will hold approximately 35-40 files, and in JPEG format approximately 45-50 files at maximum image quality. The capacity of the buffer changes slightly when you enable picture enhancement functions. The OM-D E-M1 captures about 160 MP images in one second (16 MP at 10 frames per second), and therefore its performance higher than very expensive professional SLR cameras such as Nikon D800, Canon 5D Mark III, etc. The only pity is that RAW files have only 12-bit color depth.

Many other very useful features and capabilities:

  • System for cleaning the matrix from dust.
  • Full HD Video 1920 * 1080 30p.
  • Wi-fi module, with which you can remotely control the camera from a smartphone or tablet. I installed the necessary software without any problems and worked with the function of remote control of the camera and transferring photos. You can add GPS data. Of course, the camera does not have a GPS receiver, but it can take coordinates and type them in EXIF from your smartphone.
  • Mechanical shutter that supports excerpts to 1/8000 seconds Exposure Flash sync is 1/320 second. Personally, I shot without problems with a Nikon flash S on shutter speed 1/400 s
  • Many filters to create a variety of creative photos.
  • There is a very useful picking function.
  • There is an instant increase in the image area for focusing. This feature is very useful when working with manual optics.
  • There is a function of Time Laps (interval shooting).
  • HDRtimer shooting.
  • Live Time allows you to observe changes in the picture with increasing excerpts in real time.
  • There is a Micro HDMI output (type D), USB and a microphone input. The camera uses SD memory cards (SDHC, SDXC) and supports UHS ‑ I.
  • There is also a horizon indicator, bracketing different types.
  • and much, much more.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 EZ ED MSC Splash Proof Lens

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 EZ ED MSC Splash Proof

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 EZ ED MSC Splash Proof

M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 is an interesting lens with 4.2x zoom, its EGF is 24-100 mm, this focal length range is universal and can be used for a huge number of scenes.

That's just me very surprised that the lens is weak aperture F / 3.5-6.3, while it is not even a super zoom. In my opinion, a lens with a maximum aperture ratio of 1: 6.3, complete with an expensive Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera, is a kind of mockery of the buyer. But it's good that the rest of the M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 is good enough :)

M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 internal focusing and internal zoom - when zooming and focusing, the lens does not change its size and neither the front nor the rear lens moves. The zoom and focus rings are non-rubberized. Focus ring electronic, without direct mechanical connection with the lenses of the lens, thus achieving a very smooth focusing. Automatic focus is fast and quiet.

Sample photo on Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 EZ ED MSC

Example photo on Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 EZ ED MSC. The lens copes well with backlight. From bright light sources you can get 10-pointed star.

The zoom ring can be in three positions. The position is adjusted by shifting the ring along the axis of the lens. Also on the case you can find a special indicator that shows the installed position:

1. M-zoom - manual control of the lens focal length is available in this mode. When zooming manually, the lens makes a slight “growling” noise. When you rest against the extreme positions of the focal length and continue to rotate the zoom ring, you get an unpleasant feeling of rubbing plastic on plastic. The mode is used to change the focal length as quickly as possible. To switch to it, just pull the zoom ring towards the camera mount.

2. E-zoom - in this position, electronic (electro-magnetic) zoom control is available ('Elektro-magnetic Zoom' - 'EZ' in the name), while the zoom is very smooth, which is important when shooting video. For zooming, the ring is pulled back and forth by rotation, after which the camera begins to smoothly and silently change the focal length of the lens. On the body you can find two arrow markers 'Tele' and 'Wide' which indicate directions for increasing or decreasing the focal length.

3. Macro - in this mode, a maximum magnification of 1: 2.8 is available for macro photography, while the minimum focusing distance is 20 cm.In the normal mode, the MDF is 35 cm.To switch to this mode, you need to press the 'Macro' button located on the lens barrel and pull the zoom ring towards the front lens until it stops. After this manipulation, the focal length will always be 43 mm. The lens itself can not only work in macro mode, but also focus to infinity. Roughly speaking, in this position, a prime macro lens is obtained from a zoom lens.

Lens flare

The lens flare to get it, you need to try hard :)

When the camera is turned off, if the lens was previously set to the E-Zoom position, the focal length automatically returns to the extreme position by 12 mm. The lens is well assembled, has a metal mount, I did not find any backlash or flaws in the assembly. It weighs a little more than 200 grams, it's a pity there is no hood in the kit. In the optical scheme, consisting of 10 elements in 9 groups, you can find 2 aspherical elements, 1 ED element and 1 HR element, which help to create good image quality.

There is another special button next to the 'Macro' button - 'L-fn'('Lens FuNction '-' Lens function button '). Usually the button is used to lock the focus ('AF Stop') so that it does not accidentally get lost, but the button can be reprogrammed using the camera's 'Button function' menu. I find the button very convenient as it is easy to press with the thumb of the left hand, which supports the camera and lens during shooting.

It is definitely worth noting that the lens has splash proof (Splash Proof), they usually write that it is dustproof and waterproof. I think M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 will easily endure a little rain.

M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1: 3.5-6.3 uses 52mm color filters. The number of diaphragm blades is only 5, which is also very surprising. Usually, modern lenses have more aperture blades. Aperture closes down to f / 22 across the entire focal length range.

Please note that the camera automatically corrects many lens flaws, for example distortion и vignettingtherefore, it is rather difficult to see the “naked” lens operation. In general, the lens creates a sharp, contrasting image, I have no complaints about image quality, but nevertheless I would not buy the expensive Olympus OM-D E-M1 with such a lens.

  • R'RёS,R ° F "RёR№

    Interesting camera.

  • landco

    Photo from the very Olympus, which explains everything http://cs322319.vk.me/v322319422/5b23/kQwwXJPW0gA.jpg

  • Andrei

    Thanks for the review! Finally, they waited until the official representatives found a worthy marketing platform in your resource (I hope Arkady is not free for you), for which there is a special thanks to them, if only the others would catch up.

    At the expense of the camera and the system as a whole, it is perhaps somewhat conservative:
    1) very high cost
    2) a matrix with crop factor 2, which is fraught with noise at a relatively low iso
    3) the micro 4/3 system itself
    4) a small park of lenses

    • Arkady Shapoval

      The camera was provided to me for review for free, and the creation of a review is not paid in any way, so I can safely write what is in reality. I constantly refuse "paid" reviews, because they require "sugary text" for their products.

      • Andrei

        I meant that you can produce a good product and not be afraid to give it for reviews, while supporting the author financially, but not limiting the “censorship”.
        Thank you Arkady for the honorable reviews)

        • Vasilii

          "Small park of lenses"
          (C)

          Yes, you, my friend, a joker: for this camera, as well as for any other mirrorless park, the lens is the whole ibei. The mirrorless did not have human focus, and to call the whale from this review a lens simply does not turn its tongue.

          • Andrei

            Do you offer to buy such an expensive camera and shoot with manual glasses? Any cheapest SLR or mirrorless can handle this.
            I meant system lenses.

            • Vampire

              Is that a little lenses for mikru? Olympus and Panasonic, Sigma. And high-aperture zooms and cheap staffs, as well as all 4/3 lenses through an adapter while maintaining a fairly nimble phase autofocus ...

  • Jury

    That's right, nefig feed the bourgeoisie!

  • Vasilii

    Arkady, a few months ago Sony A7, the so-called mirrorless killer, went on sale. In light of this fact, Olympus, Panas and Fujik came to an end. Therefore, it does not matter at all whether the camera with a crop factor of 2 is good or bad, because there is a real opportunity to pay 300 tanks instead of this Olympus with a matrix from a soap dish to take a7 with a ff matrix. It's like instead of nikon d600, say “consider me a communist” and buy nikon d300s. The train left.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      To be honest, I am surprised by the forcing of the topic of the “killer” of mirrorless cameras :), but nevertheless this is a real reason for these manufacturers to bring their products to mind and lower the price.

      • Zmitser

        Review A7 Sony, Arkady, I would like to see from you)

  • Lex

    crop 2 for 75000r yes you went crazy, you can buy a full-frame canon 5d mark 2 with minimal mileage and a lens 24-105 is

    • Vadim

      And you can not carry around 1.5 kg with your neck and get great shots: http://flic.kr/p/jkjsf4.

      • Peter

        Vadim, why on the neck?
        There are excellent offloads for the 1st or 2nd FF cameras.
        I've personally been using it for almost a year now - no neck problems, despite the fact that my Canon 5D Mark III usually has a Canon 70-200 / 2.8L IS II and Spedlite 600-RT strapped on and I can work a full shift with it.

        I totally agree with Lex)

  • Hleb

    As for me, a great mirrorless.
    Arkady, I would very much like to see a review of the Lumix GH4, it really hasn’t come on sale yet), but as soon as I hope you’ll cram it)
    and tell us)

  • Vladimir

    Arkady, a small clarification, phase sensors work only with lenses of the 4/3 system. I myself am the owner of OM-D E-M5 and I can say that already on this model of the camera, autofocus is very fast, it was not difficult to remove the horse rushing at you at a gallop in poor lighting, while the second person had a camera with fast phase sensors autofocus has encountered great difficulties.
    Thanks for the review! All good shots.

  • Oleg

    “Personally, I shot with a Nikon SB-900 at 1/400 s.” Is this a hint of high-speed sync?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      No, this is just an undocumented feature of the instance from the review.

    • Alex

      But how did you synchronize them?

  • Sergei

    Thanks Arkady for the review! And regarding the camera, although I have never been a user of mirrorless cameras, who knows maybe everything is ahead, I am surprised by the powerful functionality of the device and the frankly weak matrix and lens (autofocus) - again, in my personal opinion, this is the basis in the camera, again I understand what is on this type of technique can be made masterpieces and there are customers and perhaps there is even a demand, but the price ... And here's an interesting moment earlier in the time of DSLRs and soap dishes, the price of DSLRs was high, the manufacturers argued that the production is difficult and high-tech in the manufacture of matrices, etc. ... As time passed, they removed the mirror, removed the large size of the matrix, it seemed that it was nirvana and a bright photographic future, and the price is still high, but there is one plus the market has expanded and you can choose not only a DSLR and a soap dish as before, I don’t speak for the film, I think this area is for mega pros and aesthetic photographers ...

  • Dmitriy

    Hopefully other offices. dealerships will take an example and will provide the technician for reviews ... thanks for the review)))

  • Maksim

    Tse, if I don’t have mercy, it’s better to know the technology of. representative, let's say "the first pishov". I wanted a rule, not a vignation. On the apparatus: marveling at the photo - honored. Ale tsіna, a lover of his own advancement is guilty of being able to finish his job, with a price close to 20 thousand hryvnyas. there will be a number of buyers who will be finished.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      No, earlier other manufacturers also provided, but very few.

  • anonym

    For me, this is a very interesting product, if you believe the price tag of 400 ye with a lens, and the lens is of quite decent quality, even more than that. And what can you buy for the money? An old used SLR, without a lens, and here you can get a ready-made kit, with good autofocus and killer speed

    • Maksim

      Yakikh 400 dolarіv? 20 yew hryvnia per kit !!!

  • Sandy

    400 cu this is only the cost of the lens, IMHO canon and Nikon whales have a better picture.

  • Oleg

    Thanks for the review!

    What surprises me is that Olympus - a well-known company with more than half a century of tradition and technology - scored on the quality of the optics for its so diligently promoted system (4/3, micro 4/3). After all, it is not difficult for her to release a high-quality lens with a constant aperture ratio of 2,8 or at least 4. After all, they have these technologies, but the issue of reducing the cost of production (not the price tag) is in the first place.

    Although, probably, the buyer for whom this system is produced may well be satisfied with the range of optics for it.

    Although Carl Zeiss Touit lenses are also available for the same Sony NEX

    • Alexey

      Dude, did you get out of the cave?
      http://market.yandex.ru/model.xml?modelid=10501112&hid=90613

      • Oleg

        Dude Alexey, look in which cave you are sitting, a lens that covers an area of ​​the frame equal to 1 / 3.84 of the area of ​​the full matrix 24,0 x 36,0 / 17,3 x 13,0, with a luminosity of only 2,8, it costs as much as a lens with similar characteristics on a full 24,0 x 36,0 matrix. Given that the flange of 4: 3 = 38,67, versus 44,0 for Canon or 46,5 for Nikon. Also, in prices, it concerns more or less whale lenses of Olympus 4: 3. This is despite the fact that the cost of processing optical glass grows exponentially as the diameter of this glass increases. So dude, if this link had a lens with at least 2,0 aperture at the same price, it would be possible to talk about something.

    • Sergey from Moscow

      With good hands, you can squeeze the maximum out on very budget devices. The disadvantages in the case of the E-M1 begin to rush only when shooting smart people after sunset, and even then they can be covered with high-aperture glasses like the Föhtlander.

  • Evgeny Belyaev

    for a SLR camera (lumix r2 or this OM-D) the dimensions of the lens are tolerable. but if you have a lumix gf 2, then 83 mm in length is not comme il faut. electric filling, of course, requires space, but let's be realistic.
    electric zoom - cool. but why? IMHO, with mechanics the rammer would be smaller.

    • Ruslan

      Have you tried to shoot video with electronic zoom when zooming is soft and smooth?

  • Denis

    The camera is good, but the problem is the price. The price is not at all the same level as the picture.

  • Skai

    Hmm, KMK most commentators are against the micro - they did not shoot in full frame, and high-aperture optics.
    Yes, the price tag bites - but those who need compactness, speed and reliability - in any case, they will crawl to a smaller sensor size, and all 35mm fans - you will get one fig in a medium format :-)
    I myself switched from D610 to this baby, and I am not overjoyed. A camera with 12-40 2,8 fits in the pocket of a winter jacket.
    PS: The quality of the images was not affected, the lower dd makes itself felt, the frames with high iso when converted to typhoid from the native converter drive through noise reduction (maybe I did not turn off the checkmark somewhere in the software, I haven’t figured out yet).

    • Sergei

  • anonym

    Then, let's stop at the pictures from mobile phones - many of them are already very good!))

  • Alexander

    I just don’t understand why everyone immediately begins to compare mikra with ff and prove that it is worse. Clear business that is not better. But at the same time, it also allows you to take good pictures. Why can’t you pay attention to the advantages of the camera and system? If a person likes to shoot on ff, shoot on health, why go to such reviews and shout that ff is better, and the micra is miserable?

    • Ivan

      For two reasons, fools, money. There are more fools, of course.

  • Koba

    why some people are against mikra is not clear. yes, the prices for them are greatly inflated due to their small size and dimensions, but cameras and lenses from Olympus or Panasonic are very good, some are even excellent. I personally own Nikon D3s, but I am considering taking a second (and even a third) small camera for such cases where Nikon is simply impossible to direct at people. up to ISO1600 and even more so up to ISO800 micra gives completely satisfactory results, and more is not necessary. By the way, who has this or other Olympus cameras, I would like to ask - is it possible to display the electronic distance scale during manual focusing in order to know for sure, for example, that the camera is focused at 2 or 3 meters? Maybe I'm asking a stupid question, since I never used them (except for a short-term use of the Panasonic GX1, which is an excellent camera and gave me excellent results, but I forgot to check the presence of an electronic distance scale), but I hope knowledgeable people will not scold me for this ...

    • Michael

      Because everyone has different tasks, and some of them do not understand that you can shoot something else else. As a street camera, compact crop is very convenient and popular.

      • Koba

        of course. It is also surprising that people are happy with mobile cameras with microscopic matrices, well, the largest is 1 / 1.7 on 1000 dollar mobile phones from Huawei, but cameras with 4/3 matrices, which are just giants compared to phones, turn out to be bad ... Freaks ...

        • Pokemon

          It is one thing to pull the phone out of a jacket or pants pocket, another thing is Fujik 100series or mikru with a good lens.
          The reaction of the people to Fujik 100 series is positive (the dude takes off his father’s Zenith) and the people “don’t see” him at all. Everyone is used to phones and this is a convenience. It became very important to the people which camera is in the phone

          • Koba

            I would like to ask the owners of mirrorless cameras once again - do they have an electronic distance scale, that is, if I want to set the lens exactly at a certain distance, let's say 2 places, is it possible to do this through visual control, otherwise most lenses for these systems there is no distance scale. Only the rather expensive Olympus 12/2 has it ...

            • twm

              @Koba
              Belated response.
              The other day I was holding Oly 12-40 2.8 in my hands: the distance scale is marked on the lens body. Moreover, the AF / MF mode switching ring (mechanical - the rim around the lens body) hides this very scale: when AF is selected, it hides, when you switch to MF - voila, the marks are visible. An unusual and savvy solution.
