Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Compact System Camera with 12 - 40 mm Zoom Lens introduces an incredible combination of premium DSLR performance with incredible performance in a compact system frame.

Professional set up

Offering more freedom to expand your photographic arsenal, this lightweight 16.3 megapixel camera is a highly customisable tool. Ideal for enthusiasts or as a reliable high quality back up camera for professional photographers, the E-M1 is loaded with sophisticated, user-friendly features that make it a high performance addition to your kit bag.

Capable of shooting up to 10 fps, this responsive compact system camera is perfectly suited to fast moving subjects. With an impressively fast shutter speed of just 1/8000th and a tremendous ISO range of 100-25600 the photographic possibilities are virtually limitless.

Standard zoom supplied

Coming with a M.ZUKIO DIGITAL 12-40 mm f/2.8 fixed aperture zoom lens, this versatile camera kit gives you everything you need to start shooting straight away.

The equivalent of a 24 - 80 mm focal length on a 35 mm camera, this telephoto zoom lens opens up a wide range of photographic options. A fixed aperture throughout the focal range gives fantastic low-light performance while a 20 cm minimum focusing distance will let you get right up close to your subject to achieve great results every time.

An enhanced Live MOS sensor working with a TruePic VII image processor deliver crisp sharp images through Olympus' range of Micro Four Thirds lenses. The weather sealed body also lets you shoot in a variety of conditions when using compatible lenses for more photographic freedom and choice.

Dust- and weather-proof as well as being operational in temperatures as low as -10°C, the E-M1 is an incredible travel companion, able to go with you, wherever the pictures are.

Dual 2x2 control

Take control of the E-M1 and master your photography with a series of easily accessible controls that are conveniently positioned around the EM1's lightweight magnesium frame.

The two wheels on the shoulder double up letting you control everything you'll need to get the right settings for your shooting. A quick press of a button brings up the secondary features which can be assigned to compliment your style, letting you scroll through aperture, white balance, ISO and shutter speed quickly and easily for full creative control.

The wide and bright LCD touchscreen also gives you the option of selecting your settings on screen for all those times that speed isn't a factor in getting the right settings.

Angle the 3.0" tilting display to shoot from all angles with a smart dimming feature that lets you review your shots accurately, even when shooting outside.

Giving you the option to choose exactly how you frame your shots, the E-M1 also features a 2,360,000 dot viewfinder that lets you compose and shoot with the camera to your eye.

Smart features

Make the most of the E-M1's smart features and start taking the kind of photos that you want without wasting time making adjustments in editing software.

In-built HDR allows you to compose pictures with High Dynamic Range for a striking way to capture images and create visually arresting shots in camera. This removes the need to export your images, while a host of Art Filters let you snap away and store images and HD videos in a unique and artistic way.

All the photos and clips you take can be shared quickly and easily as the EM-1 features WiFi compatibility, making forwarding and sharing data between your devices a breeze, a particularly handy feature for busy schedules.

This smart interaction also means that you can control your camera's settings and preview your shots remotely using your smart device and the Olympus Image Share app for terrific hands-free control.

Loaded with features, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Compact System Camera with  12-40 Zoom Lens is a superb tool to expand your photographic skills that will let you take professional looking shots in next to no time.
