    The E-M10 Mark II’s 5-Axis IBIS lets you shoot with greater mobility and freedom than you can with other entry-to-intermediate class interchangeable lens cameras. Its unparalleled effectiveness means consistently sharp, naturally-lit pictures taken even without a tripod. The camera provides convenient handheld shooting flexibility for photography novices with a wide-range of subject interests. From wide-angle landscapes, portraits, social snapshots, travel movies, macro close-ups to exciting telephoto action sports, Olympus’ advanced 5-Axis IS effectively counteracts camera shake to deliver brilliantly sharp handheld imaging results. It encourages compositional creativity as the superb anti-shake enables you to position or hold the camera much more freely than you can with other cameras. With the IS mechanism built into the camera body, every lens used with the new E-M10 Mark II automatically benefits from stabilisation, ensuring that your choice of lenses is truly fuss free.

    For eye-level framing, the E-M10 Mark II uses a superb 2.36M dot OLED based digital viewfinder that shows you what the camera will capture in real time, with a 100% view of the scene. You are fully in control of the photographic process with live preview of exposure and camera settings; simplifying the learning of photographic concepts, and encouraging creative experimentation. The viewfinder’s advanced aspherical optics provides a distortion-free 1.23x magnification, with an eye-glass comfortable 19.2mm viewpoint. A special ‘simulated’ optical viewfinder (S-OVF) setting mimicks the visual experience of the traditional optical view finder. Using HDR technology to enhance the live view dynamic range to provide a realistic digital viewfinder experience similar to optical view finder, S-OVF LiveView improves viewing visibility in backlit photography, and re-introduces the element of creative unpredictability inherent to SLRs.

    For high quality Full HD movie recording, Olympus’ ‘OM-D Movie’ technology first introduced with the enthusiast E-M5 Mark II model is incorporated into this entry-level model. OM-D Movie combines high-performance mechanical and digital 5-Axis stabilisation to help you smoothly capture exceptional shake-free movies with the camera in hand. (60P, 50P, 30P, 25P 24P fps options available) A special “CLIPS” recording mode lets you easily produce high quality short films using time-limited, pre-planned video segments that can be conveniently combined within the camera.

    The E-M10 Mark II is the first OM-D model equipped with the AF Track Pad functionality: With your eye looking through the viewfinder, simply trace your thumb on the rear LCD touchscreen to select the desired focus point for enhanced precision and control over autofocus.

    The OM-D E-M10II is small and tiny! With the 14-42mm f3.5 - 5.6 , it is as small as a fujifilm x100.

    The handgrip is comfortable, but not as comfortable as the OMD EM-5II.
    But thanks to the help of the thumb-hook, it improved the handling of the E-M10II significantly.

    Dials are placed close to each other this time as opposed to the OMD E-M10. Where your mode selection dial is on the left side of the camera.

    You can use your index finger to adjust the aperture while using your thumb to adjust the shutter speed and mode selection dial.

    There is an additional custom function , making it 3 instead of 2 from the OMD E-M10
    All the placement of the custom function are easily accessible but when using it, I found it easier to use the first two function buttons as they are easier to reach out to as compared to the 3rd button.

    Shooting with the OMD E-M10II
    I've been using it for two weeks and I must admit, this is a great camera for beginners or anyone to start with. As I usually do street photography, the tilting touch screen that allows you to focus helps a lot in getting shots unoticed. Although there are hits and misses from the auto focus system, overall it is still pretty good. It also helps in getting different angle while being able to compose your image.

    Although the OM-D E-M10II only has a 16MP Sensor, the Colours are very vibrant and vivid and when zoomed in at 100%, the details can stilll be seen!

    At iso 3200, images are not that noisy. But I would not reccommend going any higher than 5000 as the noise start to creep in. At 6400 onwards the images start to get very noisy.

    Another good thing about the new OM-D E-M10II is the AF targeting pad. Normally when shooting through the EVF, the back LCD screen will be switched off ,either automatically by eye sensor, or by turning it to EVF view only. Now you can make full use of the LCD screen even while shooting with the electronic viewfinder. Enabling the AF targeting pad, you can use the back LCD screen to change focusing points while shooting through the EVF. You can use your finger to trace along the screen to move the focusing points around the frame.

    The main purpose of having this feature is to minimize pulling away from framing through the EVF, hence having less chance of missing a shot while shooting.

    As like most Olympus MFT cameras, it comes with its own art filter sets. The OM-D E-M10II comes with 14 different art filters and here are some of it which I personally think are different and pretty interesting.

    I personally like grainy Film filter a lot!

    With the OM-D Movie stabilisation and the light weight of the OMD E-M10II, you do not have to worry about holding your camera for a long duration and worry about getting a very shaky video.

    I personally like the OM-D E-M10II a lot. As a street photographer, I perfer a camera that is light, small and quick to focus. The OM-D E-M10II hits all the spot as a camera for me.
    But no camera is perfect, there are downside to the camera as well.

    So here are the Pros and Cons

    Pros
    Light weight
    Easy to handle
    touch screen auto focus
    AF Target pad system

    Cons
    Battery life is short
    The LCD screen brightens and saturates the images
    Some buttons are not ergonomically placed
    WiFi function is not as usable as it is.(might be due to software version issue)

    My thoughts
    The OM-D E-M10II is a camera that has improved from its predecessors. It is a small MFT camera that packs a punch. Although the display screen is something that you must be aware of if you are using it to review your images a lot, the touch screen AF capabilities, together with the tilting screen and the 5-Axis stabilisation makes it one of the best cameras out there for any situation.
