Olympus 6 Month Warranty Extension

Perfectly meeting the needs of true professionals, the E-M1X delivers the absolute confidence every photographer comes to expect – with better control, ergonomics and stability throughout the shoot. The advanced system of innovative technology and features has been engineered to take the game a level higher.

Integrated vertical grip

Giving you everything you need in one, the E-M1X has an integrated vertical grip. As the design is the same on both the vertical and horizontal grip, the photographer enjoys the same intuitive hand movements in both portrait and landscape format shooting. With two battery units, it’s ideal for long-time assignments.

World’s best image stabilitation (IS)

The engineers at Olympus have taken IS yet another step forward to introduce the redeveloped gyro sensor. It delivers the precision that the E-M1X demands, with results unseen with other cameras. This advanced technology makes up to 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation possible to eliminate the need for a tripod and enable free-hand shooting.

World’s best weatherproof body

Thanks to renowned OM-D weather sealing in the E-M1X, professional photographers can take on any scene – in the rain, snow and sand – without a worry. Now also with additional sealing for the SD card slot and all other covers, as well as for the remote cable, microphone and headphone terminals.

Haptic buttons and improved ergonomics

The specially designed height, shape and characteristics of each individual button and dial means you can easily feel the ones you need and fully concentrate on shooting through the viewfinder. The button layout and handling have both been enhanced to offer better ergonomics, which is especially convenient during long periods of shooting.

Class-leading Supersonic Wave Filter (SSWF)

The best in class has now become even better. The enhanced SSWF provides a higher level of reliability when you change lenses. Dirt and dust have even less a chance of ruining photos and equipment. 

Long shutter life

After being put through stringent tests, the shutter curtain on the E-M1X has shown to provide a top-class operation life of 400,000 actuations.

Dual card slots

With two UHS-II slots, you can always be sure that the camera delivers the same performance even when one card is full. Professionals can save shots on both cards and always have a back-up, so a photo never goes lost.

USB charging

The E-M1X is the first Olympus camera to support USB power delivery of up to 100 Watts. This makes you independent of the power supply wherever you may be and have the option of charging the batteries using a powerbank. With double battery support, two batteries can be fully charged in-camera simultaneously in just two hours.

Long battery life

The duo battery power gives photographers the chance to shoot up to 2,580 images before having to recharge, which is ideal for long photo shoots and remote-location assignments.
