BREAK FREE FROM BIG AND BULKY.

Carrying lighter gear gives you more energy. More shooting flexibility. More ways to express yourself. You’re free to shoot longer so you can nail the right shot. Our compact systems let you react more quickly and blend into the scene - unlike larger cameras and lenses that can draw unwanted attention and make subjects feel uncomfortable. Because when your camera gear is perfectly designed for you, you’re free to be your very best.

POWERFUL IMAGE STABILIZATION

ALWAYS CLEAR AND SHARP AND VIBRANT. ALL HANDHELD.

Our in-body image stabilization lets you shoot handheld by compensating for all camera movement. The result? Crisp, clear, detailed images - even in low light. No tripod needed.

With other systems, even slight camera shake can lead to blurry photos and jerky video. Our cutting edge stabilization helps you frame and capture tack-sharp stills and smooth high-res video as if the camera is perfectly still.

SHOOT WITH LESS GEAR AND MORE FREEDOM.

Our image stabilization uses sophisticated technology to do a simple thing: replace your stabilizing gear. You’re free to shoot handheld. Take spectacular telephoto and macro shots. Walk and explore and never worry about blurry stills or video. Even capture crisp colorful photos in low light. Our industry-leading 5-Axis Sync IS combines camera and lens stabilization to give you up to 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation, the world’s most effective stabilization performance*. Only Olympus offers you so much mobility and freedom.
