The first thing we do when a bright, shiny and in-demand camera lands on our desks? Unbox it like crazy, of course!
The OM-D is an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) from Olympus, sporting a dust- and splash-proof construction. It's lightweight in the hand, but it doesn't slouch when it comes to its specifications. You can also look at our first hands-on take with the camera.
Here is the OM-D E-M5, all boxed up and ready to go. Inside is a single lens kit featuring the 12-50mm lens.
The camera comes with a small flash that sits on the hotshoe, connecting via the accessory port. There are no fewer than three flaps that you need to remove and store safely, from the camera body and the flash unit itself, before you can make it all connect.
The battery grip (an optional extra) comes in two parts. In this photo, we attached the first component. It doesn't look particularly prominent, but trust us, it's there to add a little more bulk to the shooting experience.
