Advanced photographers looking for a compact, interchangeable-lens camera should check out the small and rugged Olympus OM-D E-M1. The mirrorless E-M1 uses a 16-MP, Live MOS, Micro Four Thirds-size sensor and features Dual Fast AF, which is designed to achieve lightning-quick autofocus speeds by automatically switching between Contrast Detection AF and Phase Detection AF, depending on the scenario. To counteract shaky hands and prevent image blur, the EM-1 features in-camera 5-axis image stabilization.
The E-M1's magnesium-alloy body is freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit and features seven protective seals to repel sand, dust, rain, ice and water spray. You can either use the nice, 2.36-million-dot resolution electronic viewfinder on top of the camera, which offers 1.48x magnification and eyecup detection for composing shots, or the 3-inch, 1,037,000-dot LCD screen on the back. The E-M1 can shoot 1080p HD videos and offers Wi-Fi connectivity between the camera and mobile devices.
