Whereas earlier DSLRs were used to manually manipulate depth of field, laptop computers (also known as smart phones) now you can do that in an instant, courtesy of machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities. Olympus has brought its new DSLR, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X said to use AI technology to focus and track subjects.

Designed primarily for professional photographers, this Micro Four-Thirds camera features what is called Intelligent Subject Detection AF. The feature is said to detect different types of subjects and fixate on the optimal area.

Leaving aside, the new Olympus camera has features that are worth considering. The camera comes with an integrated vertical grip and Olympus has redesigned the physical interface, design and shape to offer photographers a better grip on the camera. A new C-LOCK lever has been implemented to enable disabling of the buttons and dials. The camera has a robust construction and is dust-proof, splash-proof and even freeze-proof.

As for the basic specs, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X features a 20.4 MP Live MOS sensor. It’s backed by Dual TruePic VII image processors, which improves tracking and allows you to capture shots at an astonishing 60fps continuous speed with AE / AF lock. The camera also includes Pro Capture mode and can store up to 35 RAW photos at 20 MP resolution.

Another highlight of the OM-D E-M1X camera is its image stabilization system. The camera is said to provide seven stops of compensation with body stabilization and 7.5 stops of “full compensation” at shutter speed with certain digital ED lenses. The camera has 121 ‘all-crossover’ PDAF points, multi-selector joystick for selecting particular AF areas. Other features of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X include LIve ND for slow shutter effects, built-in GPS, pressure gauge, stabilized 4K video recording capability, high resolution shooting mode. The camera includes two BLH-1 lithium-ion batteries, a USB-C port, and two UHS-II card slots.
