Built on the revolutionary E-System technology, the Olympus E-5 adds powerful 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 Olympus E-5 give you more freedom to explore creative effects. And with its weatherproof design, the rugged E-5 can go anywhere.

  • In-Body Image Stabilization - The camera's In-body Image Stabilization system compensates for up to five shutter speed steps. Mechanical Image Stabilization automatically compensates for camera shake in low-light situations or when using a telephoto lens.
  • Dust Reduction System - The E-5's proven Dust Reduction System, with the Supersonic Wave Filter (SWF) self-cleaning ultrasonic sensor unit, eliminates dust particles on the sensor by silently vibrating an amazing 30,000 times per second, ensuring spot-free images. Recently awarded the "Special Invention Award" from The Asahi Shinbun Company in 2010.
  • 12.3 Megapixel Live-mos Sensor & Truepic V+ Image Processor - The powerful 12.3-megapixel Live-MOS sensor coupled with the newly developed TruePic V+ image processor means you'll capture more detail than ever before in your pictures thanks to the "Fine Detail Process" technology. In addition to more detail, the image sensor, combined with the next-generation TruePic V+ Image Processor, delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity and reduced noise, all the way up to 6400 ISO. And you'll have the flexibility to crop and still produce large, detailed prints.
  • Rugged Construction - A Rugged "thixomold" magnesium-alloy construction coupled with advanced splash and dust protection, make the E-5 the perfect choice for photographers who demand the most from their equipment, in any situation.
  • Shutter Durability - Durable shutter mechanism tested to 150,000 cycles. The pro-level shutter ensures reliability, even at five frames per second, thanks to a durable shutter mechanism tested to 150,000 cycles, making the E-5 the camera of choice for photographers who demand durability from their equipment.
  • Optical Viewfinder - The 100% accurate high eye point optical viewfinder, delivers the precise viewing accuracy demanded by the most discriminating photographer. When shooting with the E-5, what you see is what you get.
  • 3" 920,000 DOT Swivel LCD - Dust and Splashproof like the body; the 270 degree swivel LCD gives you the flexibility to capture your image from low on the ground to above your head, or at any angle. The 100 percent accurate LCD delivers the precise compositional accuracy in Live-View demanded by the most discriminating photographer. When shooting with the E-5, what you see is what you get.
  • Data Storage - Accepting Compact Flash Type I, UDMA, and SD- SDHC/SDXC, the E-5 provides a choice of data storage options for enhanced flexibility, and it is possible to transfer image files from one card to the other right inside the camera.
  • Worlds Fastest Autofocus - The E-5's 11-point High Precision Fully Twin Cross AF system is one of the world's fastest and most accurate. The Twin Cross AF design assures you accurate fast AF even at the edges of the viewfinder allowing you to get the most out of your Zuiko Digital lenses.
  • Art Filters - A series of 10 new built-in Art Filters let you create dramatic effects when shooting stills or video. The innovative Art Filters include Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Color, Light Tone, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama, Gentle Sepia, Cross Process, Dramatic Tone can all be used in all the shooting modes of the camera, Aperture, Shutter, Program and Manual modes, as well as for Movie shooting.
  • Multiple Exposure - Multiple Exposure makes heightened creativity an easily-obtained objective. Four frames can be combined, and portions of one can be combined with those of another in any of the shooting modes. Images can be combined in playback mode or directly on the LCD through the use of the new TruePic V+ Image Processor.
  • Multiple Aspect Ratios - Express yourself by altering how you frame the world -- choose from nine aspect ratios, from the standard 4:3 to the cinematic 16:9. By selecting an aspect ratio before shooting and easily reviewing images on the LCD throughout the shoot, the Multi-Aspect function adds a new means of expression to your photography.
  • Wireless Flash Control - The E-5 is compatible with a range of optional external flashes, including the Olympus FL-36R and FL-50R. Both of these flashes can be controlled wirelessly by the E-5 so you can dynamically control lighting as your photography skills grow. The E-5 features a commander function incorporated in its built-in flash, making wireless multi-flash photography possible without using an outside commander.
  • Digital Leveler - The camera's Digital Leveler function is a highly functional and practical feature for such specialized requirements as architectural photography and other similar needs.
  • HD Video - Shoot movies at 30 frames per second in 720p with available manual control over aperture and shutter speed. This level of control allows you to express your vision exactly how you want in your HD videos. When shooting a movie you have the choice of Standard or HD Movie with or without the 10 Art Filters, total movie creativity is in your control.
