    Olympus OM-D E-M1X is the most advanced camera with the M43 sensor. The ergonomics at the level of the reportage bodies in connection with the compact optical system of M43 as well as a range of groundbreaking functions such as the High Res Shot mode without the use of a tripod, the stabilization with the effectiveness of 7.5 EV or the 18f/s continuous shooting mode, make the camera a very interesting alternative for heavy DSLR camera systems. The camera will perfectly fulfil its role in reportage and sports photography as well as in every other kind of photography in which the shooting rate and the resistance of the body are of crucial importance.

The sensor also has an improved ultrasonic waves filter which vibrates 30 thousand times per second and is to significantly decrease the possibility of making the sensor dirty during lens replacement. Of course, the sensor is stabilized and the stabilization effectiveness is at a record-high level of 7.5EV for the focal length of 100mm (the equivalent of 200mm for full frame). This means that in most situations we should be able to take photographs without a tripod. The system is supported by a double, four-core TruePic VII processor which is responsible for the body’s effectiveness. E-M1X is very quick. In the case of the continuous shooting mode, we will be able to take photographs in full resolution with full AF support with the speed of 18f/s (60f/s – in the case of blocking focusing). Besides that, we also get the Pro Capture mode which will save up to 35 frames in the buffer in the RAW format before pressing the shutter so that we do not lose a photograph even if our reflex will fail us. The camera has been also equipped with the ND filter simulation mode (the ND2-ND32 range) which works in real time and which should enable getting rid of physical filters and the flicker scanning technology, which should limit the “artifacts” appearing during photography in artificial flickering light with the use of the electronic shutter. The life cycle of the mechanical shutter amounts to 400k cycles. The autofocus is based on the phase-detection system and 121 cross points, it has the sensitivity of up to -6EV (with the f/1.2 lenses) system, which does not only offer greater freedom with regard to the selection of a proper mode (the group of 25 AF points or non-standard AF field settings), but it is also equipped with new algorithms responsible for tracking objects. The AF recognizes objects on photographs and quickly analyzes the saved images in order to better deal with unpredictable movements of a photographed aim. We also get the intelligent object detection function which will automatically track, for instance, cars, planes or trains which appear in the frame. Olympus OM-D E-M1X is also equipped with the advanced video functions. The camera enables recording films in the Cinema 4K (4096 × 2160px) resolution with the speed of 24f/s and in the standard 4K (3840 × 2160px) with the speed of 30f/s and the IPB or AII-I compression. Besides that, we can also record films with a flat image profile OM-Log 400 or record Full HD materials in slow motion with the speed of 120f/s. Of course, in the film mode we can use full support for the stabilization system, which offers 3 modes of work optimized in terms of video-filming. E-M1X has been equipped with a rather humble electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 2.36MP and the 3.2’’ rotating touch screen. The camera also has two SD card slots (UHS-II), the GPS module and the in-built system of detectors (thermometer, manometer, compass), which will make it possible to save additional metadata on the photographs. As could be expected from the E-M1X reportage cameras, it has the in-built vertical grip, which holds two batteries BLH-1 and makes it possible to take 2580 photographs without charging. When required, we may charge them directly in the camera within 2 hours. The body is, of course, sealed against dust and splashes as well as resistant to frost up to -20º. The whole camera weighs 997g (together with the batteries) and it has the dimensions of 144,4 × 146,8 × 75,4mm. PHOTOS OF OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1X OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1X VIDEO REVIEW COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR CAMERAS Olympus OM-D E-M1X is a camera which has two natural rivals: a cheaper Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II model and its Panasonic equivalent – Lumix G9. All models share the same sensor and the same M43 lens connector so most parameters are similar and all constructions differ mainly when it comes to their functions.
