Olympus “OM-D E-M1 Mark II”

Released on December 22, 2016 (Thursday)

Olympus releases the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 Mark II, a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. As a lineup, we will prepare a single body.

A mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera that complies with the Micro Four Thirds System standard. Positioned as the successor model to the flagship machine “OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1” released in October 2013, equipped with a newly developed high-speed image processing engine “TruePic VIII” and a new Live MOS sensor with 20.37 million effective pixels This enables high-speed continuous shooting of up to 18 fps with AF / AE tracking while maintaining a full pixel count of 20.37 million pixels.

Specifically, “DUAL FAST AF”, which effectively selects and uses image plane phase difference AF and contrast AF, has evolved. The image plane phase difference AF uses all 121 distance measuring points of cross type, which significantly improves the capturing performance of the subject. Another feature is that the AF functions of “AF target mode”, “AF target position” and “face priority AF / eye priority AF” can be easily set with one action. When focusing on a moving subject, operability such as a cluster display showing the focus area and an AF target pad that allows you to touch the AF point while looking into the viewfinder has evolved.

In terms of image quality, the use of the high-speed image processing engine “TruePic VIII” improves the image quality during high-sensitivity shooting and allows you to obtain images with less noise while leaving details. Along with this, the upper limit of the normal sensitivity (at ISO AUTO) becomes ISO6400, which flexibly supports various shooting scenes. For image stabilization, an in-body 5-axis image stabilization mechanism is installed. The body is sealed in various places with high airtightness and weather resistance to improve dust and drip proofness.

For movie shooting, it supports digital cinema standard 4K (4096 x 2160 dots), frame rate (24P), and high bit rate (237Mbps) that can be used for movie production. In addition, the 20.37 million pixel Live MOS sensor supports 3 times faster reading than the conventional one, which effectively suppresses moving body distortion that tends to occur during movie shooting, and enables clear and sharp movie shooting.

The electronic viewfinder uses a high-definition, high-definition electronic viewfinder that is 0.74 times as large as the 35mm format and comparable to the highest-end full-size digital SLR models. The maximum frame rate of 120 fps, the shortest display time lag of 5 msec at high speed, and the drastic reduction of the image disappearance time at the time of shooting make it close to the naked eye and do not miss a moving subject.

In addition, the rear monitor is equipped with a 2-axis movable 3.0-type LCD (approximately 1.04 million dots) that is compatible with the touch panel. External media adopts SD / SDHC / SDXC memory cards, Eye-Fi card compatible (endless mode not supported) double slot (slot 1 supports UHS-I, II. Slot 2 supports UHS-I).

The body size is 134.1 (width) x 90.9 (height) x 68.9 (depth) mm, and the weight is about 574 g (CIPA compliant, including rechargeable battery and memory card).

Sigma “SIGMA sd Quattro H”

Released on Tuesday, December 20, 2016

From Sigma, the digital single-lens camera “SIGMA sd Quattro H” equipped with a large Foveon X3 direct image sensor (generation name “Quattro”) will appear.

The “SIGMA sd Quattro H” is a digital single-lens camera that is equipped with the first large sized APS-H sensor in Sigma and has the highest image quality in its class, with 51 million pixels. The lens mount is a Sigma SA mount. RAW data supports DNG (Digital Negative) format in addition to the conventional X3F format. Another feature is that the versatility is expanded by using image processing software from other companies.

In terms of processing performance, the image processing engine “TRUE (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) III” exclusively for the Foveon X3 sensor “Quattro” is adopted. The company’s original algorithm renders images in high definition in three dimensions without degrading images and without damaging rich color details. By installing two “TRUE III”, it is said that the signal output from the Quattro sensor is processed at high speed.

For focus performance, two AF detection methods are used: image plane phase difference detection method and contrast detection method. Achieve high-speed AF while maintaining AF accuracy. In addition, the auto focus mode supports single AF, which is suitable for normal shooting, and continuous AF, which keeps focusing on a moving subject. With continuous AF, the auto focus continues to operate while the shutter button is pressed halfway, and the moving object prediction function ensures accurate focus.

Furthermore, in addition to the “free movement mode” in which the focus frame can be freely moved in any desired position, the “9-point selection mode” that selects from nine focus frames gives priority when detecting a person’s face. Equipped with “Face Priority AF Mode” for focusing. The built-in AF auxiliary light allows autofocus shooting even in dark places.

The main specifications are an electronic viewfinder (about 2.36 million dots) with a field of view of about 100% and a magnification of about 0.96, a 3-inch LCD (about 1.62 million dots) on the LCD monitor, and SD / SDHC / external recording media. Supports SDXC memory card. The body size is 147 (width) x 95.1 (height) x 90.8 (depth) mm. Weight is about 635g (excluding batteries and cards).
