One of the claims Olympus made about the Olympus OM-D EM1 is that its water and dust proofing have been improved over it OM-D EM5.

Chris over at the Phoblographer wanted to see if the camera will indeed stand to its spec and operate under running water. It did.

In the short video below the camera is rinsed, washed (and repeat) and it still operates. One note that the test makes is that the lens – an Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 – is also weather proofed and it is uncertain if the camera will perform similarly with non-weather-proofed lens.

Now all that remains is to see if it also passes the dust test like the Pentax K-7 and K-5
