      It’s comfortable. It’s reliable. It’s weathersealed. Most importantly, it’s shooting all day and always getting that critical shot.


        When your camera system is as compact and lightweight as ours, an incredible thing happens: you can move around a lot easier.


        Toss your rain cover out. The E-M1X is splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof so you can shoot without worry in harsh weather.


        Feel more secure holding your camera. Shoot comfortably for hours with the help of a deep finger rest that works in both horizontal and vertical positions.

      Camera and lens group


      The E-M1X and our M.Zuiko PRO lenses are designed on a groundbreaking mirrorless platform enabling us to build lighter, smaller cameras that pack powerful performance. Compared to flagship DSLR bodies and lenses, this system is half the size, half the weight, and a lot less bulky. The advantages? More mobility to get better shots. Unparalleled handheld shooting. Working longer without tiring. Stowing more gear in a smaller bag. Our full line of M.Zuiko PRO lenses deliver incredible imaging power in half the size of 35mm glass. It all adds up to a more creative shooting experience that lets you get more from every shoot.


      Concentrate on taking the perfect shot instead of protecting your camera from the elements. Thanks to sturdy magnesium alloy construction and an advanced system of seals, the E-M1X has best-in-class weather protection (tested to the IPX1 standard) – innovations successfully used in our durable Tough cameras. Each of the camera’s access points, including the SD card slots, are protected by a splashproof cover. A dustproof design means worry-free shooting on windy days at the beach or extreme environments. You can keep working even if temperatures plummet: the E-M1X is freezeproof down to 14°F / -10°C.

      The E-M1X is built for comfort. It starts with an integrated vertical grip featuring a deep finger rest that feels secure and comfortable in your hand. Buttons and controls are strategically placed for both vertical and horizontal shooting – use the same finger motion to find the controls no matter how you hold the camera. Operate the camera without taking your eye off the viewfinder because buttons and controls are identifiable by touch. All button functions can be customized and the C-LOCK (custom lock) feature locks only the buttons you want and keeps the others active.


      The E-M1X has 2 long life, high-capacity batteries that can be charged via USB cable in about 2 hours. The at-a-glance display lets you keep an eye on battery status.

      Image is everything. That’s why the E-M1X incorporates some of the industry’s most advanced technology to ensure your images achieve the highest standards of excellence: yours.


        Our revolutionary image stabilization system frees you to capture startlingly clear handheld telephoto shots in any lighting.


        Take a sharp, spectacularly detailed 50MP High Resolution Image without a tripod or other stabilizing equipment.


        Work with mind-blowing speed and pinpoint accuracy powered by two industry-leading imaging processors.

      Sunset over cloudy sky


      The E-M1X uses the industry’s most sophisticated stabilization system found in an interchangeable lens camera. Our groundbreaking in-body 5-Axis Image Stabilization system provides 7.0 stops of compensation freeing you to shoot handheld, telephoto or macro in any light for crisp, clear photos without a tripod. When you pair the camera with a stabilized M.Zuiko PRO lens, the combined 5-Axis Sync IS system produces the world’s most effective image stabilization system providing up to 7.5 stops of compensation. It lets you take blur-free handheld shots as long as 4 seconds. There isn’t another pro camera system that offers so much mobility and flexibility.


      Sometimes you can use a tripod, sometimes you can’t. The E-M1X brilliantly captures super high resolution images either way. When using the E-M1X’s High Res Shot Mode with a tripod, the camera’s image sensor automatically moves in 0.5 pixel increments while taking eight shots in under a second, then merges them to create one 50MP high resolution shot. No tripod? With Handheld High Res Shot Mode, 16 shots are automatically taken while you hold the camera, then merged into a single 50MP image.

      The E-M1X is equipped with two quad core TruePic™ VIII image processors built for speed and reliability. You’ll experience instantaneous start-up and write speeds to dual card slots, exhilarating autofocusing plus blazing sequential shooting. Besides speed, the processors deliver off-the-chart image quality highlighted by true-to-life color, edge-to-edge sharpness and vibrant gradations. Both processors work in tandem with a high-speed 20MP Live MOS Sensor featuring an Anti-Reflection Coating to reduce flaring and ghosting directly on the sensor.


      Preview slow shutter effects in the viewfinder before shooting. Live ND Mode eliminates swapping ND filters for each shooting scene or lens. Choose from 5 ND levels starting from 1EV to 5EV.



      Use the Focus Stacking & Bracketing Modes to take sharp macro photos with a deep depth of field. With in-camera Focus Stacking, the E-M1X automatically captures several shots with varying focal points, then merges them to form a single image with edge-to-edge clarity. It's ideal for shooting plants, insects or small objects.

      Multiple exposures

        With 121 cross-type Phase Detection plus Contrast Detection focus points, you’ll have unmatched accuracy to effortlessly capture split-second moments with precision.


        Concentrate on framing instead of focusing. This new AF feature uses AI-based technology to find and focus on specific subjects like cars and aircraft.


        Customize and save unique AF target areas so you’ll always be ready to capture your favorite subjects.

      camera LCD with focus points


      Our autofocus system relies on the quantity and quality of detection information. That’s why our Frequency Accelerating Sensor Technology (F.A.S.T.) AF system boasts 121 points of on-chip Phase Detection plus Contrast Detection AF across the sensor plane. Every point is cross-type, enabling dependable detection of vertical and horizontal lines for industry-leading accuracy. It's advanced technology to ensure you’ll easily lock focus on any subject in any environment.


      Imagine your camera’s AF system being able to detect and lock on to subjects all by itself. That’s Intelligent Subject Detection AF. Developed using AI-based Deep Learning Technology, it detects specific subjects like a speeding formula car or rally car, motocross racer and flying aircraft. Choose from four modes: Birds, Motor Vehicles, Aircraft or Trains. The system pinpoints, then focuses on one part of a subject — a driver’s helmet, a pilot or an engineer. You only need to compose your shot.

      The E-M1X generates sequential shooting speeds that surpass any DSLR. Using the silent electronic shutter, you can capture up to 60 fps of 20MP RAW image files in S-AF Mode and 18 fps in C-AF Tracking Mode. Or switch to the mechanical shutter to shoot high resolution photos at a blazing 15fps in S-AF Mode with best-in-class speed. It’s all possible thanks to dual image processors that ensure the fastest subjects are captured in sharp detail.


      Shooting split second action is effortless with Pro Capture Mode. It starts buffering a running series of up to 35 high resolution images the moment you press the shutter button halfway. When you see the moment you want to capture, fully press the shutter button to instantly save that moment plus the buffered shots. Because you can go back 35 frames, you get the split second image you want without any lag. Never miss an exciting moment again.

    Does not disappoint. Features, functions, and customization options, along with light weight make the EM1X a no regrets choice.

    Switched from full frame for reduced weight—I am in my mid-60s and do a lot of long hikes with camera + binoculars and sometimes a spotting scope, birds are the focus. Opted for the EM1X based on reviews and specs, and over the M-1 Mark III for the dual grip, despite the increased weight. I am not disappointed. Stabilization feature is incredible, improving images immediately. The options for customization and features is huge, and I have only begun to explore the gamut. However, the ease of switching between auto-focus options, Pro-capture mode, and other programmed routines is quick and easy, and the ability to program buttons for customized functions gives ability to make the camera incredibly personalized for my needs. I have only scratched the surface of functionality, but what I have used so far has improved my rate of good image captures. Primary lens of use at present is the M.Zuiko 100-400 f5-6.3 IS, which is a phenomenal pairing.

    Lightweight, Versatile - holds its own against the Full Frame market.

    Great Camera! I’m a long time Olympus member. I still have my first OM-2 camera and made the transition to the OM-D series of cameras in 2018. I’m returned to photographic and find the new series of Olympus cameras have stood the test of time. I own the E-M1 Mark II, Mark III and recently received the E-M1X as a gift. I like the flexibility the E-M1X provides with shooting controls in both the horizontal and vertical positions. The enhanced tracking features in the M1X provide the needed enhancement over the Mark II and Mark III. As with all model the in-camera “Focus Stacking” features works as advertised, reducing post production time and 3rd party software needs. <br /> <br />The ergonomic of the E-M1X with the large hand grip horizontal position provides better stability. I find that I can take longer exposures when shooting focus stack shots than with the Mark II and Mark III before needing a tripod. I prefer the recessed front and rear dials on the E-M1X over the exposed dials not he Mark III. The recessed configuration does help prevent accidental adjustments. The build-in dual battery pack is an added bonus. It does add weight; however, it also provide additional stability when taking handheld shots. <br /> <br />Prior to the E-M1X I did not use the GPS track features via the OI.Track and OI. Share App for the Mark III. However, I love the built-in GPS element of the E-M1X. It removes the need to link the log from the Apps to the photos. This feature is great and provides the additional layer of photo details that can be shared, recalling the exact location of each shots.

    Best choice for me for wildlife

    I've been using Olympus M43 for over ten years; the E-M1 II and Pen-F for the past few. Adding the E-M1X gives me the most reliable, tough, balanced, ergonomic camera I have ever used. Image quality and stabilization are a bit better than the E-M1 II, and the handheld ND and high-res capabilities are handy. Most importantly, the E-M1X has been superb for birds and other wildlife, especially with the 300 f/4 PRO. The bird AI autofocus is remarkable.
