The Olympus OM-D E-M5 mark II was the highly anticipated successor to the popular OM-D E-M5 model. It had more advanced video characteristics than any other Olympus model before it, such as Full HD recording at 24p, 25p, 30p, 50p, and 60p with bitrates of up to 77Mbps, a multi-angle screen that flips out to one side and 5-axis stabilisation with five stops of compensation rather than four for improved hand-held recording. It was also the first model to feature Olympus’ High Resolution Mode that produces a 40MP JPG or 64MP RAW file by combining 8 shots in-camera.
