Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review

 

One of our favorite mirrorless cameras just got even better

Premium finish ; Excellent EVF ; Compact proportions ; Effective IS system

16MP starting to look a little dated ; Minor update to the Mark II ; Focus-tracking could be better

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III might not be a massive leap forward over the Mark II, with much of the camera's specification remaining the same. However, Olympus has refined and tweaked one of our favorite mirrorless cameras to make it an even more...

Is this the perfect step up for smartphone shooters?. Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III.

Attractive retro design ; Compact body ; Excellent JPEG image quality with lovely colour rendition ; Superb in-body image stabilisation works with every lens ; Fast, accurate autofocus with static subjects

Read our full review of Olympus' entry level OM-D, the E-M10 Mark III, with 4K video, Wi-Fi and new controls.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III looks like a subtle update to the E-M10 Mark II , however, it adds 4K video, and makes using some of the modes easier, with a new, more user friendly interface. The first screen you see when you select a mode, is very...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 III Shooting Experience

 

We've had a production spec Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III for several weeks now. And, as we prepare our review, Carey Rose has been seeing what it's like to kick back, enjoy the summer and let the camera's revamped Auto mode do the heavy lifting.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

 

Let's be honest. It's intimidating to step up from a point-and-shoot smartphone or digicam to an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) system. Not only do you have to pick lenses, but ILC's are inherently more capable, which also means they're more complex.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

 

The mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III camera doesn't offer a lot of tech upgrades, instead focusing on an easier photography experience.

Compact, solid build. Built-in EVF and flash. Tilting touch LCD. 8.6fps burst shooting. Raw and JPG capture. In-camera art filters. Wi-Fi.

16MP sensor seems dated. Tracking focus slows speed to 4.8fps. No Bluetooth or NFC.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III doesn't have a lot of head-turning new features—the addition of 4K video with in-camera editing is the most headline-grabbing feature. Other upgrades—improved ergonomics, faster processing and focus, and better results...

Olympus E-M10 III Review

 

Early in 2014, Olympus took its retro-styled OM-D camera line to a new level of accessibility with the E-M10, a camera with affordable entry-level pricing, yet sharing much of its feature set with the higher-end E-M1 and E-M5. In late 2015, the company...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Announced

 

Olympus has announced the new OM-D E-M10 Mark III as the latest iteration in this popular line. The camera features a 16MP sensor and 4K video capture. Additionally, it offers Olympus' popular 5-axis in-body image stabilization.

Still, at $650 (body only) and $800 (including a 14-42mm kit lens), the E-M10 Mark III appears to deliver the goods. It should be available later this month. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
