Review

Noch ist die Olympus OM-D E-M5 nicht im Handel erhältlich, doch wir konnten schon ein Seriengerät ausführlich im Labor und in der Praxis testen. 2012-04-12 Even the Olympus OM-D E-M5 not commercially available, but we were already a series instrument extensively in the laboratory and in the practice test. With its rugged, splash-proof casing in a retro design, but it takes modern elements such as a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, handles, and many screen controls, it promises the top echelon of the new mirrorless system cameras worthy to represent. Also, the rapid auto focus and high resolution sensor to do its part. Whether it is worthwhile to fatten the piggy bank to the launch date of late April 2012 and then to slaughter humanely, can be read in the following review. (Benjamin Kirchheim)

Ergonomics and processing The retro look of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 certainly not like everyone, but he is still very successful. The camera is nice and compact and the housing, which consists mostly of metal, excellent workmanship. That the OM-D is also not protected against splash water, you may not initially think, feel and be seen but the seals when pressing the keys or opening the flaps. Thus, it is no problem to use the camera sometimes in the pouring rain or the water in the spray, as long as the camera is not submerged under water - there is then a matching dip in housing accessories.

In the hand, the OM-D E-M5 is surprisingly well despite its compact dimensions. This is especially pronounced at the thumb rest on the back. Olympus cleverly solves the problem handle for those who like to keep a bit more in hand. The accessories are a two-piece handle. One consists only of a base plate with an additional handle gain, which offers a pleasant overall extra grip without the camera to zoom in too much. The second stage then provides an additional vertical grip and a second battery. Especially the latter is not wrong, but the stamina thus increases from 330 to approximately 650 shots by CIPA standard. The five-pin lithium ion battery, which is not to the Pen cameras is compatible incidentally, is taken at the bottom of the camera. This is also on the stand no problem, since the metal tripod mount far enough is removed from the battery compartment. However, the tripod socket is located outside the optical axis, which means, for example, somewhat more effort for panoramic heads.

The SDHC and SDXC-compatible SD memory card slot is located on the right side of the handle, thus providing easy access. On the left side an HDMI and a combined USB AV remote switching mechanism can be found. Opening the rubber flap, however, require that the screen is easily folded - an unfortunate solution. A power connector you are looking to no avail. The rear monitor triggers with 610, 000 pixels on reasonably fine and, thanks to the OLED technology a very bright and brilliant image. The fact that the screen has an aspect ratio of 3:2, but the camera records natively in 4:3, you have to live with small left and right black borders. In contrast, 16:9, which is mainly used for example when shooting video, the black edges are found above and below. Insofar like 3:2 is a good compromise between 4:3 and 16:9 to be. The folding mechanism of the screen has a robust and practicable at the same time. So you can also heads close to the ground and shoot away properly, the screen is also practically independent perspective. That he is, moreover, still sensitive to the touch, one first notices him at all. Thus, some functions can be an alternative to Enable key operation directly on the screen. Fingertip the focus point can be set and increases the sharpness control, but also trigger the camera in iPhone-style is not a problem

Any camera software or print should work.

If you have a digital camera or photo printer the software that came with them should have a photo editor. If you don't download one from a cameras or printer manufacturers website. They are free and normally the only thing you need to open the full versions all the way up are the serial number of a memory card. I know Olympus and Epson have decent ones but you can pick any brand you want. HP has their ImageZone and I'd say Fuji and Pentax will have some good ones to.
