Fri May 22, 2015

Digital SLR or DSLR is the acronym for digital single-lens (DSL) reflex camera.

The following video presents Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II – DSL-ARM:

DSL-ARM is the affliction of having your arm stretched by using a heavy DSLR. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II is the cure to DSL-ARM because it’s almost half the the size of a DSLR, but with all the power.

Are you suffering from DSL-Arm? You could win the cure!

What is DSLR-ARM?
For years, photographers have suffered the effects of carrying heavy DSLRs and their lenses – a condition known as DSL-ARM. Watch how an arm stretched beyond repair by the weight of a traditional DSLR can lead to a host of embarrassing moments.

Olympus Has THE CURE
Intense research and product development have led to the cure for DSL-ARM – the OM-D E-M5 Mark II.
Capture amazing images without the bulk and weight of a DSLR. Don’t you think you’ve suffered long enough?

  • Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable Federal, State, Provincial and local laws and Regulations.
