Olympus E-5 Digital SLR Camera Features

No Blur. No Dust. No Bulk. No Limits.
Built on our revolutionary E-System technology, the new Olympus E-5 adds powerful new features that let you do more than ever before. Designed to maximize the award-winning performance of Zuiko Digital lenses, the E-5 achieves the highest image quality of any Olympus camera—with astonishing detail, blazing speed, and true-to-life color. New options like user control in Art Filters and 720p HD Video give you more freedom to explore creative effects. And with its weatherproof design, the rugged E-5 can go anywhere.

A New Dimension In Image Quality
Pairing the new TruePic™ V+ image processing engine with a 12.3 megapixel High-Speed Live MOS Sensor, the E-5 optimizes the power of Zuiko Digital lenses. New “Fine Detail Processing” technology captures exceptional detail from shadow to highlight. The E-5’s groundbreaking, in-body Image Stabilization enables blur-free handheld shooting. And its redesigned, 11-point High Precision Twin Cross AF system is one of the world’s fastest and most accurate.

Reliable Performance Under Any Condition
The first Olympus professional camera to offer 720p HD video, the E-5 records at 30fps with high quality audio. While shooting high-definition video, photographers can capture stereo sound quality by plugging in any microphone with a standard 3.5mm plug into the camera’s stereo microphone terminal. And 10 new in-camera Art Filters let you add dramatic effects to both still photos and HD video. All Art Filters can be used in Aperture priority, Shutter priority, Program and Manual exposure modes. And new to the E-5, the Multiple Exposure function lets you overlay up to 4 images in a single frame.

All The Power, Without All The Bulk
When paired with Zuiko Digital lenses, the E-5 system is the most compact on the market. An
