This camera is a really easy to use and takes great pictures. It has many nice features you'd expect to find on more expensive cameras.

5This is a very nice travel camera that takes great pictures
By Amazon Customer
This is a very nice travel camera that takes great pictures. I am still learning the manual features, but it works great in iAuto mode for daytime pictures. I have also gotten some great portraits with this using my old Canon 50 prime lens, using an adapter ring.

5Great camera with a solid build that allows for great control over the captured image
By Charles Profitt
Long, long ago in a life before children I had was an avid SLR camera user. I was the photography editor for my college newspaper and had my work in a gallery on campus. My past 35mm file equipment included a Minolta X-700, Leica R3 Mot and a Nikon 6006. My digital camera equipment was not up to the standards of my film cameras and I have always longed to get back to having a camera that allowed me greater control over the image captured.

I researched several options including the Nikon 1 J5, Sony A6300, Fujifilm X-T20, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 and the Nikon D5600. I did not want to go back to the days of large heavy camera bags, but wanted the control of my old SLRs. Given that I limited my search to mirrorless cameras using 4/3 and APS-C sensors. I was originally nervous about using the smaller 4/3 sensor, but extensive research I concluded that the difference was not significant for the types of photography I was planning on. If you are considering shooting at ISOs above 800 the APS-C sensors might be better for you and full frame sensors even better. Sony and Fuji makes some very good APS-C sensor cameras, but when I was comparing the features and cost of the cameras the Olympus came out to have more value for me.

The key features that made me interested in the OM-D EM series of cameras are:
- AF targeting pad,
- 5-axis image stabilization
- RAW format available
- Build Quality
- Metal Body
- Live composite mode

In the end my decision came down to the OM-D EM10 Mark Ii or the OM-D EM5 Mark II. With the EM5 Mark II priced at almost double the EM10 Mark II I decided I did not need the extra features the EM5 Mark II offered such as weather proofing and tethered mode.

Some reviews covering OM-D cameras complained about overly complex menus, but I have not found the menu system to be overwhelming. They are very detailed and allow for a great deal of control over the camera, but I have not found them difficult to use. I have been using the camera over the past few days and found the options and controls to be fantastic. This highly capable camera will allow me to reignite my passion for photography and offers a great amount of room for growth.

note: I purchased this from a local camera store due to the price being $50 less than Amazon.
