Autofocus and image stabilisation
Combined with the newest processor from the Olympus flagship camera OM-D E-M1 Mark II and 5-axis image stabilisation, this camera offers the ideal set-up to take great pictures.
With 121 selectable points of autofocus, covering the main part of the screen, it’s easy to get the focus right. For portrait photography, the «Face Priority» and «Eye Detection» autofocus will also make sure your photograph is focused and correctly exposed.
Lightweight and retro
The OM-D E-M10 series is known for its retro-style models and its third edition is no exception. With even more refinements and a great feel to it, this camera is simply fun to carry with you all the time.
Easy handling – just like with a smartphone
Olympus have come up with a revised user interface, making the E-M10 Mark III as easy and intuitive to use like a smartphone. Touchscreen, swiping, selecting – viewing. It’s (still) not possible to zoom with gestures as with the iPhone and other smartphones, but the «Shortcut button» displays all menu symbols and makes it easy to touch and select any one you want. The options are adjustable, so you can select functions such as time exposure, multiple exposure, focus bracketing, live composite and live bulb without having to know what they are and how to find them.
«Shortcut button», auto and scene mode
The «Shortcut button» is right next to the on/off switch. It gives you quick access to the four new modes and allows you to takes professional photographs without needing to have prior knowledge. To make it even easier for you, the auto mode has been revised and can now even detect blur caused by camera shake in the dark.
The Scene Mode has been extended. You can now select from six shooting environments with pre-defined settings, opening up a world of popular photography technique without needing a lot of prior knowledge. With the «Advanced Photo Mode», you can access functions such as multiple exposure, HDR, panorama, keystone compensation, live composite, live time, continuous shooting or focus bracketing without having to enter the menu. In addition, the E-M10 Mark III has a silent mode that lets you take pictures without distracting anyone.
Art Mode with new art filters
A new filter has been added to the Art Mode: The Bleach Bypass Type I and Type II. Type I produces a glossy look, like shining silver metal, and Type II produces a nostalgic look reminiscent of old film. There are 16 art filters in total, providing a great range of effects.
Built-in WiFi adds to the easy handling of the E-M10 Mark III. The free Olympus Image Share app available for iOS or Android lets you share images and video with your friends without having to upload them to a laptop or PC first. Once you’ve synced the E-M10 Mark III with your smartphone or tablet, you can use your smart device to remotely control your camera or add GPS data to your images.
