We've been seeing some great camera deals on Olympus cameras recently, but this Memorial Day camera deal is particularly amazing. The Olympus OM-D E-M1X has had $1,200 knocked off its price at Adorama, making it the perfect camera body to invest in this Memorial Day weekend. With a 20MP Micro Four Thirds sensor and the ability to shoot 4K 20fps, the OM-D E-M1X is perfect for sports and wildlife photography.

One of the most tempting aspects of the best Olympus cameras is their size and weight. Their Micro Four Thirds sensors enable Olympus cameras to be super compact and lightweight, giving photographers more room in their kitbag (and less chance of inducing neck strain!). Even the Olympus OM-D E-M1X, which is one of the best professional cameras, is half the size and weight of flagship DSLRs from other camera brands. 

One of our favorite features of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X is its integrated vertical grip, which features a deep finger rest for enhanced ergonomics – vitally important when you're out shooting in the field for long periods of time. 

Meanwhile, if you're a fan of wildlife or sports photography, you'll be able to enjoy the lightning fast 60fps continuous shooting that'll ensure you never miss the perfect freeze-frame of action. Plus, the 7.0 EV stops of image stabilization means that you can shoot with long telephoto lenses without having to worry about using super-high shutter speeds.

If you're a landscape shooter who's concerned about the 20MP sensor, fear not! The Olympus OM-D E-M1X also features a 50MP handheld high res shot mode for additional image quality.
