Olympus OM-D EM10 Mk3

Olympus has officially announced their 3rd generation update to the OM-D EM10 series of mirrorless cameras . The new model , which will henceforth be known as the EM10 MK3 , aims to be the perfect travel camera as it features a compact design , 4K internal recording , 5 axis image stabilization and the support for a plethora of Micro 4/3 lenses from Olympus , Panasonic and other brands .


The EM10 Mk3 features a timeless retro inspired design which has been present in every Olympus ILC since , the EM10 , which packs a similar chassis as the mk2 version has a 3" tilt-able touchscreen display which features touch to focus and shoot . The body features a pop up flash , a high resolution 2.36m dot OLED viewfinder as well as two color options including black and silver .


While the outside of the EM10 - Mk3 remains similar to the tried and tested design of old , internally , the new camera does feature some major upgrades over its predecessor . The first of which is the inclusion of the new TruePic VIII processor which is also used on the flagship EM1 mk2 model . The new processor gives the camera the ability to capture and process data from 121 selectable AF points and shoot at 8.6 fps  and  process 4K @30fps UHD , The camera also has 15 different filters which you can overlay before shooting a photo (more artistic picture profiles more like it) .

The sensor on the camera is still a 16.1 MP unit and features IBIS (5 axis image stabilization), this has been a staple feature on Olympus M4/3 cameras for a while and now thanks to the addition of 4K UHD recording , this also makes it a perfectly capable travel video / vlogging camera as the IBIS compensates for camera shake - making this  a direct rival to Panasonic's G85 in some sorts .

Last but not least , Olympus has added a built in intervalometer to the camera which allows it to capture 999 images in 1 second or 24hr intervals , there is also the added feature of built in wifi which allows your phone to control the camera if need be .


The Olympus OM-D EM10 MK3 costs $649 - body only , the camera also comes with the Olympus 14-42 EZ kit lens for $799 and in some sites (Adorama and Amazon - visit the 43rumors link below) the camera comes with a Olympus carrying case and a memory card for the same $799 price .

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III: Your ideal travel companion

Hamburg, 08/31/2017 • Never stop the journey with the latest addition to the Olympus OM-D camera line-up – Olympus has released the newest model in their award-winning OM-D series; the OM-D E-M10 Mark lll. Beautifully designed and sharing many of the class-leading technologies found in other models of the esteemed OM-D range, the E-M10 Mark lll encourages photographers to take the next step and discover the joy of photography.

Sure to become a modern classic, Olympus has carefully designed the E-M10 Mark lll to be the perfect travel companion. Light-weight and easy to use, this camera has been created with intuitive controls to help photographers take stunning, crisp images and smooth videos from the moment they pick up the camera.

The E-M10 Mark lll is available in silver or black and goes on sale by mid September 2017. This interchangeable lens camera is available as a body only or a lens kit (see below for choices and pricing).

Amazing results in any shooting situation
They say that excitement comes from discovering new things and thanks to the combination of the latest TruePic Vlll image processor, also used in the acclaimed flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II, and Olympus’ class leading 5-axis Image Stabilisation (IS), photographers can enjoy taking beautiful blur-free images that they never thought possible. This clever technology gives pin-sharp results in virtually any shooting situation without using a tripod, even night scenes*.
Making movies to capture the sights and sounds of new places truly brings memories to life, although sometimes the glory of the detail in 4K movies can be lost to shakes and blur. Olympus has taken that worry away from photographers new to movie making, because the E-M10 Mark III’s high-performance image stabilisation is built into the camera body and compensates for camera shake with any lens in any scene, even hand held!

On the go: The ideal everyday companion
A constant companion, the stylish OM-D E-M10 Mark lll is compact and lightweight enough to take on any journey – photographers won’t want to leave home without it!
With built-in view finder, flash and Wi-Fi, everything about this camera has been designed with the new photographer in mind and the feel of the compact body is no exception. Comfortable in the hand, the robust construction and enlarged grip means the camera is easy to hold. This camera has a tiltable LCD monitor with touch operations similar to a smartphone, easy-to-use metal dials and buttons, and the icons and text on the camera are highly visible; all of which will help photographers to be creative on the move.

The E-M10 Mark lll will be the best dressed OM-D, because it launches with its own premium, genuine leather body jacket**.

Available in brown or black this will be perfect accessory to compliment the beautifully styled E-M10 Mark lll.

Ignite the passion and develop your skills
The E-M10 Mark lll is equipped with incredible new upgrades and technology, cleverly brought together to allow photographers to develop as they use their camera more and start to take creative control. Even first time interchangeable lens camera users can shoot with ease due to the four camera assist shooting modes:

AUTO mode (previously iAUTO) has been significantly improved for better blur-free images – detecting movement even in the dark.

Scene (SCN) mode has been upgraded and will help photographers to take control of the results they want by choosing one of six themes with predefined settings.

The Advanced Photo (AP) mode has been added so that photographers can fine tune their images and enjoy incredible shooting methods such as Live Composite and Multiple Exposure without having to access the menu structure.

Bleach Bypass is a new option in Art Filter (ART) mode, which expands the range of photographic expressions by reproducing the silver retention method used when developing film.

All of these shooting modes are assigned to the revised, intuitive mode dial for easy access.

Never stop the journey
Busy times with friends and family usually means there’s lots going on. But often taking a quick snap is disappointing – the action is blurred and the moment is missed!

Photographers will be amazed at the results they can achieve with Olympus’ high-speed Auto Focus (AF) system. By using the E-M10 Mark III’s high-speed Touch AF, they can capture the exact moment with a simple touch on the LCD screen, freezing the action with jaw-dropping clarity.
The latest OM-D model now features 121 contrast AF points thanks to the improved processing performance of the TruePic Vlll. With 121 AF points covering most of the image area you can focus anywhere on the screen. The Continuous AF has a tracking ability to detect the subject movement, and photographers will find the Face Priority AF and Eye Detection AF really useful to ensure proper exposure and sharp focus automatically when shooting portraits.

Easy sharing with Wi-Fi
Photographers can stay connected while they are out and about, with the E-M10 Mark lll’s built-in Wi-Fi function. It’s so easy to share beautiful images and movie clips with friends, using the Olympus Image Share (OI.Share) smartphone app, without the use of a computer. Once connected to the app, photographers can use their smartphone or tablet to remotely control the shutter release, and many more functions such as adding GPS data to their photos.
