Olympus Mirrorless Cameras
For over a hundred years, Michaels has been a leading provider of cameras and photography accessories. Its offerings include Olympus mirrorless cameras, a line of devices that provide high-quality images without the typical bulky frame of a DSLR.
A Closer Look at the Olympus Mirrorless Range
Olympus Pens feature very compact frames and interchangeable lenses. The most basic models have LCD screens for photo compositions. Users can easily adjust these screens for the perfect selfie experience. For something a little more professional, advanced Pens come with electronic viewfinders for easier eye-level photography.
All Olympus Pens feature a complete set of automatic and manual controls that allow users to change the focus points, aperture, shutter speed, and shooting mode. They also have built-in image stabilization to allow slower shutter speeds without the camera shake. Olympus Pens are an excellent choice if you want a high-quality camera that is small enough to fit your handbag or jacket pocket.
For the professional photographer, every Olympus OM-D camera uses a larger central electronic viewfinder for more straightforward image compositions. Many photographers prefer a central viewfinder because they tend to provide better balance when using large lenses. This design makes the OM-D line more suitable for the Olympus’ f/28 pro-range lenses.
If you are a photographer who usually shoots outdoors, regardless of the weather or season, many of our Olympus mirrorless cameras like the E-M1 III and E-M1X come with protective weather sealing.
The Advantage of a Micro 4/3rds Sensor
Olympus mirrorless cameras have micro 4/3rds sensors with wide aspect ratios of 1.33. While smaller than the APS-C sensor, a micro 4/3rds sensor offers similar performance. A smaller sensor creates a lighter, more compact, and easier-to-handle device.
Aside from lowering the lens focal length requirement, the micro 4/3rds sensor’s focal distance allows photographers to use very sharp lenses with excellent depth of field. Overall, it becomes easier to capture focused shots, which is helpful for a large number of subjects, including wildlife, sports, or action shots.
