High-speed Performance

High-speed sequential shooting and high-speed AF that can capture split-second moments

Unparalleled sequential shooting performance, an incredibly advanced fast new AF system, and a 120-fps high-speed viewfinder help you capture once-elusive split-second moments in high resolution.


Maximum 18 fps AF/AE tracking sequential shooting

By developing the 20M Live MOS sensor together with the TruePic VIII image processor, framing and sequential shooting of moving subjects using 18-fps AF/AE tracking[1] is made possible while maintaining the high 20M pixel count. With AF/AE tracking high-speed sequential shooting that beats that of DSLRs, it easy to frame fast-moving subjects and capture the precise moment in the finest detail.

  • When using Toshiba SDXU-B032G
  • 1. When using silent sequential shooting L with C-AF at 1/1000 sec., maximum aperture, and face priority set to Off. Sequential shooting speed slows down when shooting at ISO 8000 or above.


Maximum 60 fps AF/AE lock sequential shooting

Development the new 20M Live MOS sensor together with the TruePic VIII image processor made maximum 60-fps[1] AF/AE lock high-speed sequential shooting possible at a 20M pixel count. Amazing sequential shooting speed beyond that of DSLR cameras lets you capture split-second moments that cannot be seen with the naked eye, in incredible detail.

Pro Capture

Pro Capture, a feature that provides time-lag-free shooting so you can capture the precise, desired moment, is now more advanced than ever. The camera begins recording 20M images once the shutter button is half-pressed, and retains up to 35 of the most recent images when the shutter button is full-pressed. By capturing moments just prior to when the shutter is released, Pro Capture makes up for time lag caused by human reflexes and camera processing.

  • When in Pro Capture mode, slower shutter speeds and flash cannot be used.
  • In Pro Capture Sequential L, the minimum aperture is F8.

The new 20M Live MOS sensor and new TruePic VIII image processor deliver dramatically improved image quality at high ISO settings. Normal ISO speed (ISO AUTO) has been expanded to ISO 6400. You can capture detailed images with minimal noise even at high ISO settings.


ISO LOW (ISO 64 equivalent) compatible

The new 20M Live MOS sensor makes it possible to use ISO LOW (ISO 64 equivalent). With this advantage you can enjoy shooting at slow shutter speeds.


Rich dynamic range

Smooth gradations are possible even in high-contrast scenes.


Anti-reflective coating

 Without AR coating

 With AR coating

Anti-reflective (AR) coating is used on both sides of the sealing glass for the image sensor. This feature minimises ghosts and flaring.


50M High Res Shot

This function is perfect for scenes where you need a higher resolution in photos, such as shooting artwork and landscapes. The camera moves the sensor in half-pixel increments while capturing eight shots, which are then used to generate a single high-resolution shot equal to that captured with a 50M sensor. Using the high resolving power of M.Zuiko PRO or M.Zuiko Premium lenses yields the best results. The new TruePic VIII image processor effectively suppresses blur caused by moving subjects. It is also possible to capture 25M-equivalent images if you want to keep the file size smaller.


RAW processing

In RAW+JPEG mode, three types of imaged are saved including 50M or 25M JPEG, 80M RAW (ORF), and 20M RAW (ORI).

80M RAW images can be converted to 50M JPEG images in the camera, and to 80M JPEG images by using Olympus Viewer 3.

20M RAW (ORI) images cannot be played back or processed in the camera, but they can be viewed and processed using Olympus Viewer 3.

High Res Shot RAW images can be processed using Olympus Viewer 3 V2.0 (64 bit OS).

  • The 20M RAW (ORI) image is the first of the 8 RAW images shot.
  • A tripod is required for shooting.
  • If the subject moves while shooting, the section that moved will appear at a lower resolution in the image.
  • Due to flickering, it will not work under inconsistent light sources.
  • You can select from the widest aperture value up to f/8, from 1/8000 to 8 sec. for shutter speed, and from ISO LOW to ISO 1600.
  • For flash photography, set the sync speed to longer than 1/50 sec.
