In summary

      While the E-M1X may not suit everyday photographers, it has plenty to offer to serious shooters, particularly if they work with moving subjects or shoot on location.

      Full review

      The just-announced OM-D E-M1X sits in line with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II at the top of the Olympus line-up. Although they share the same image sensor, the E-M1X  comes with two TruePic VIII image processors that provide radical improvements in speed, performance and functionality. The E-M1X has been developed as a result of feedback from professional photographers working on location and features  an integrated vertical grip containing two BLH-1 lithium-ion batteries that more than double the shooting capacity.

      Physically, the new camera is quite different from the E-M1 Mark II, although it also comes with comprehensive weather sealing and is usable at temperatures as low as  -10°C. The body of the E-M1X is much deeper to accommodate the vertical grip and cartridge battery insertion system.

      Photo Review was one of three journalists who attended the pre-launch briefing and were able to try out the new camera and use it with a variety of Olympus PRO lenses. Before actually seeing and handling the camera we had the impression that it appeared too big for the compact M4/3 format. But we were wrong.

      In a photographer’s hands the E-M1X is a delight to use and size and weight simply fade into irrelevance. Ergonomically the camera body is well designed with a textured grip moulding and deep finger rest that works well whether the camera is held horizontally or vertically. Thumb rests are provided on the rear panel for added security in both directions and key controls are duplicated for horizontal and vertical operation.

      The control layout is reassuringly familiar although some tweaks have made some of the buttons and dials more accessible. The camera is also remarkably well balanced with lenses ranging in size from the  M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO through to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4.0 IS PRO lens.

      Physical Improvements
      The integrated vertical grip provides space for the new cartridge that accepts two BLH-1 batteries; the same battery as is used in the E-M1 Mark II. The camera is CIPA rated for  870 shots/charge with IS on but no flash or approximately 1,290 frames per battery using the quick sleep mode.

      When shooting with the camera and using the silent mode we were able to capture 1290 frames and still had more than 20% of the charge remaining in the first battery so we think these figures may be conservative. The camera automatically swaps to the second battery when the first runs low to ensure no interruptions to shooting – including with burst capture.

      The E-M1X is also the first camera to support USB  power delivery and power supply to the camera from a USB PD standard power source that is rated at up to 100 Watts. This makes it possible to charge the two BLH-1 batteries in the camera body in approximately two hours.

      The EVF has the same resolution as the viewfinder in the E-M1 Mark II but supports a higher magnification of 0.83x (35mm equivalent) and delivers a clear, distortion-free  view of the scene throughout the frame. The screen boasts a fast frame rate of 120 fps using progressive scanning and a 0.005 second display time lag which is barely perceptible and does not interfere with high-speed shooting.

      The upgraded SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) vibrates the sensor at 30,000 times/second to remove dust. A new coating has been added to the sensor’s surface to reduce the chances of dust settling on the sensor by 10% compared to previous models.

      The shutter in the E-M1X has also been upgraded and is rated for 400,000 actuations, which meets professional standards. It is designed to allow heat to dissipate when the camera is used for long burst sequences or movie recording in very hot conditions. This avoids the build-up of heat in the camera, which would limit functionality.

      Key Features
      A number of improvements to technology existing in the E-M1 Mark II raise the E-M1X to a new level that will meet the requirements of some of the most demanding photographers. The main appeal of the new camera will be to photographers who shoot moving subjects, although there are also features that will make the new camera attractive to other shooters.

      Dual TruePic VIII image processors provide the speed and performance required to process image files quickly and provide support for the high-speed shooting modes. Benefits include faster start-up times, quicker recovery from sleep mode and the ability to use two high-speed UHS-II SD cards instead of just one as in the E-M1 Mark II.

      The dual processors also support Handheld High Res Shot, an evolution of the High Res Shot mode introduced in the PEN F, which recorded eight frames in quick succession using an electronic shutter and combined the data to create a single, high-resolution image. A tripod was required for such shots.

      The E-M1X offers two High Res Shot modes: Tripod High Res Shot which can produce ultra high-resolution 80-megapixel images and Handheld High Res Shot, which produces 50-megapixel images. This feature, which uses the technology that drives the dust reduction and stabilisation systems, has been requested by many landscape photographers, especially those who work in locations where it is impossible to use a tripod.

      Depending on how steadily the camera can be held during the exposure, slight cropping may occur when frames are combined in the Handheld High Res Shot mode to counteract any positional shifts between frames. The illustrations below show shots taken with and without Handheld High Res Shot mode to demonstrate typical cropping.

      The top image was captured at the normal 5124 x 3888 pixel resolution, while the bottom image was recorded in Handheld High Res Shot mode with a resolution of 8160 x 6120 pixels. Shooting with steady hands meant minimal frame cropping. 

      The E-M1X can support high-speed sequential shooting at up to 60 fps with the electronic shutter (silent shooting) and AF/AE locked on the first frame in the sequence. Up to 18 fps is available in silent mode with AF/AE tracking or up to 15 fps with the mechanical shutter.

      The dual processors also support the  Pro Capture Mode, which can record up to 35 frames from the time the shutter button is half-pressed (an increase on the 14 frames available with previous cameras) with full resolution and no blackouts. Both JPEGs and ORF.RAW files can be recorded. These frames are stored in the buffer memory and enable photographers to compensate for the time lags caused by normal reflexes and camera processing. This mode is ideal for capturing unpredictable actions.

      A new gyro sensor enables improved 5-axis sync IS, a feature introduced in the OM-D E-M5 Mark II camera. By synchronising the systems in the camera body and lens, it provides more powerful compensation for camera roll which cannot be corrected with an in-lens IS, as well as the horizontal/vertical shift which can occur during macro shooting.

      With unstabilised lenses the E-M1X can provide up to seven shutter speed steps of shake compensation. When one of Olympus’s stabilised lenses, such as the  M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO lens or the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO are fitted, shake compensation increases to 7.5 EV steps. This feature makes handheld shooting possible with the longest lens in the Olympus line-up (see images below).

      Improvements to the stabilisation and autofocusing systems make it possible to track fast-moving subjects with long lenses. High-speed sequential shooting and the generous buffer memory enable users to record long sequences of shots, tracking subjects in whatever direction they move.

      When in AF Target mode the AF frame is initially shown with a white rectangle, which turns green when the subject is acquired and focus tracking begins.  ‘Intelligent’ subject detection algorithms enable users to customise the target array so the camera picks up when the subject enters the frame and follows it until it leaves it.

      This illustration shows how the focus tracking system in the OM-D E-M1X  superimposes a rectangle on the subject for tracking. The green border indicates focus has been acquired.

      There are three programmed subject detection AF settings covering  motor sports, airplanes and trains that will automatically detect the relevant subject and focus precisely on a key area. We were particularly impressed at the success we obtained when shooting with an angle of view as small as 4.1 degrees on the 300mm lens, as illustrated by the sequence of images below, all recorded at 18 fps with the AF Target mode set for airplanes.

      Sequential frames recorded with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO lens at 18 fps.

      The motor sports mode was equally successful in tracking rally cars and could even continue tracking when the vehicles were semi-obscured by dust. The sequences below, which show every third frame in each sequence,  illustrate its capabilities. All shots were taken with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens, using the electronic shutter to obtains a capture rate of 18 fps.

      Sequence 1.

      Sequence 2. Shot through dust.

      In other respects, the AF system is largely the same as the E-M1 Mark II’s and based on the same 121-point All-cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor. The system uses AF information from recorded images for readjusting focus when tracking subjects and can operate in light levels as low as  -6 EV with an f/1.2 lens.

      New to the E-M1X is a joystick multi selector that enables users to re-position the focus area while looking through the viewfinder. It is especially useful for making smooth focus shifts during sequential shooting and video recording.

      The built-in ND filter is another new feature that  combines multiple exposures to enable slow shutter speed effects such as blurring produced by moving subjects or moving the camera while the shutter is open. The camera’s menu provides five neutral density levels: ND2 (equivalent to one EV step), ND4 (2 steps), ND8 (3 steps), ND16 (4 steps), and ND32 (5 steps). Some examples are shown below.

      The top image in this trio is taken without the ND filter. Below it is the same subject photographed with the ND8 filter, while the bottom image was shot with the ND32 filter. Note the differences in the texture of the water.

      Jiggling the camera while using the ND filter can create ‘painterly’ effects, as shown here. Two second exposure with the ND16 filter; 35mm focal length, ISO 200 at f/10.

      capabilities are enhanced by the addition of electronic stabilisation to the camera’s 5-axis sync IS capabilities. Three levels of stabilisation are available for selection, depending on the photographer’s posture and movement.

      Like the E-M1 Mark II, the E-M1X is capable of capturing a 4096 x 2160 pixel frame sequence at a 24 fps frame rate with a 237 Mbps bit rate. The maximum recording time is approximately 29 minutes.

      It also supports OM-Log400 shooting, which allows for shooting without loss of details in shadows and highlights and provides greater flexibility for colour grading in post-production. This mode is a more professional replacement for the Flat picture mode in the E-M1 Mark II.

      High-speed movie recording is supported at 120 fps with full HD resolution, another new addition to enable slow-motion recording. The E-M1X also includes an intervalometer for time-lapse photography, which is available at 4K 3849 x 2160 pixels for 5 fps playback as well as Full HD and HD resolution, which support maximum playback speeds of 15 fps and 30 fps, respectively.

      Other features
      The OM-D E-M1X contains a series of built-in ‘field sensors’ that include a GPS sensor, temperature sensor, manometer and compass. The data they collect is automatically added to the image metadata in still pictures and movie clips.

      Also provided are an anti-flicker setting, which detects the flicker frequency of light sources such as fluorescent lights and synchronises the shutter to release at times of peak brightness. This prevents uneven exposures and uneven colouring between sequential frames. The Flicker Scan setting  suppresses striped patterns that can occur when shooting in the Silent Mode and when recording movies. It enables users to fine tune the shutter speed  to cancel out unwanted effects.

      Interface Connections
      A USB Type C socket on the E-M1X takes the place of the USB 3.0 port on the E-M1 Mark II, although the new camera also comes with a USB 3 interface for connecting the camera to a computer. It is also equipped with an HDMI micro-D port and separate 3.5 mm stereo mini jacks for a microphone and headphones. A 2.5mm jack is included for the wired remote control.

      As in all modern cameras, the E-M1X comes with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac built in and also includes built-in low-energy Bluetooth (Ver. 4.2 BLE). These function enable the camera to be connected to a smart device via Olympus Capture camera control software to allow images to be uploaded to the internet and support remote controls of the camera. The latest version supports transfer of recorded images over Wi-Fi. This new feature makes it possible to transfer images wirelessly to a computer when shooting in the studio without connecting a USB cable. Both 2.4 GHz and high-speed communication 5 GHz bandwidths are available.

      The new camera is supplied with Olympus Workspace, the proprietary viewing, organising, editing and raw file conversion software, which is available as a free download to Olympus camera owners. This software includes faster RAW processing preview speeds  to streamline the post-shooting workflow and an improved rating function for speedy selection of shots from large collections of images. A multi-window environment is now supported along with and other controls provide a more satisfying work process.

      Photographers struggling with whether they actually need  to use a full-frame camera might find the table below illuminating. There are plenty of advantages to using a camera with a smaller sensor, not least being that longer lenses are generally lighter to carry and more compact to shoot with.
