The arrival of the new Olympus OM-D E-M10 III Black marks a new step forward for this impressive, entry-level line up. Following its Mark II predecessor, the Mark III comes with a host of new features and improvements, most notably the gorgeous 4K video recording. It’s still compact and lightweight, boasting the classic look Olympus is known for with in-body 5-axis stabilisation to keep your photos and video steady and clear. The new autofocus system and touch focus/capture functions make it even easier to get the perfect shot. As expected, it has the full range of manual control options, but also includes four automatic shooting modes that allow the camera to help you explore your creativity without having to make adjustments or choose the right settings. With a great combination of features, the E-M10 Mark III is ideal for new photographers as well as seasoned enthusiasts looking for big performance in a little package.

16.3 Megapixel Live MOS Image Sensor

Building on its 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor, the Olympus O-MD E-M10 Mark III now has the TruePic VIII image processor on board, the same one as the flagship E-M1 Mk II, delivering incredibly clear and vibrant images, even in lowlight. This impressive combination turns the E-M10 III into a serious little powerhouse that offers great versatility to photographers of all skill levels.

5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilisation

Still equipped with 5-axis in-body stabilisation, the E-M10 III offers a huge advantage to handheld shooters, producing incredibly sharp, blur-free images even when you’re moving around or working with slower shutter speeds. It also lends itself perfectly to shooting beautifully smooth and steady video that’s easy to watch right out of the camera.

High Speed 121-Point Auto Focus

The camera’s autofocus system has been boosted significantly, now using the same 121-point AF system as the E-M1 II. The new high-speed system offers a much wider focus area and the intuitive Touch AF Shutter function so you can focus and capture with a simple touch. It also features Face/Eye Priority AF and Continuous AF ensuring you’re prepared for a range of different scenarios.

Fast Action, Fast Tracking, Fast Shooting

For fast action scenarios made simple, the camera employs its advanced AF tracking and 8.6 fps high-speed sequential shooting to help you capture those decisive moments and split-second expressions with crystal clear results so you never miss a moment.

One-Touch 4K Video Recording

When a photo just isn’t enough to tell your story, the Olympus E-M10 III delivers beautiful 4K recording at the touch of a button. Still images can be extracted from your 4K footage offering great flexibility and easier sharing. Full HD recording is also available and, thanks to the in-body stabilisation, even handheld videos are clear and stable, letting you truly enjoy your results.

4K Time-Lapse Video Mode

The 4K Time-Lapse video mode returns to the E-M10 Mark III, offering incredible and detailed time-lapse sequences, giving you the ability to crop your images while still maintaining Full HD resolution. Interval times from 1 second to 24 hours lets you capture up to a maximum 999 frames, with automatic time-lapse movie processing available.

Camera Assist Shooting and Advanced Creative Modes

The camera has 4 shooting modes to choose from, Auto, Scene, Advanced Photo, and Art Filter. In Auto, the camera chooses the all right settings based on your scene so you can concentrate on hitting the shutter. Alternatively, you can get creative with different filters or use Advanced Photo mode to access to advanced features like Live Composite, Multi-Exposure and more.

2.36 Million-dot OLED Viewfinder

Using the same 2.36 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder as its predecessor, the 1.23x ratio magnification is suitable for all lighting conditions. The large, bright viewfinder makes it easy to frame and focus, offering tack-sharp results in a range of different conditions.
Olympus OM-D E-M10 III

Intuitive 3-Inch Tilting Touchscreen

The 3-inch LCD touchscreen offers an intuitive user experience, similar to using a smartphone. The high-resolution 1.04 million-dot screen is bright and easy to see, even in bright sunlight. Even better, the screen can tilt up and down so even when shooting low, high, or awkward angles, you’ll still have great visibility, no uncomfortable neck angles required.

Shed Some Light with a Pop-Up Flash

A convenient pop-up flash is available to help you out in challenging light conditions. It can brighten up your subjects and background when working in low-light, or if you’re shooting a backlit scene, it can help provide some fill light to help illuminate the important parts of your composition.

Sharing Made Easy with Built-In WiFi

Thanks to the built-in WiFi, sharing has never been easier. Connect the E-M10 Mark III to your smartphone using the free Olympus OI Share App and start sharing your photos on social media instantly. The app also enables remote control of the camera and shooting functions, providing a versatile wireless shooting experience straight from your smartphone or tablet.

Huge Performance with a Compact Classic Design

With a huge list of features, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 III Black also has the looks to match; an understated, classic design with just the right modern to vintage ratio. The controls are thoughtfully placed to offer a smooth user experience and the small form factor is easy to carry and right at home with your everyday essentials so you’ll always have the right camera for the right moment.
