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 design. Built-in EVF and flash. Tilting touch LCD. 8.8fps burst shooting. In-body stabilization. Raw and JPG capture. In-camera art filters. Wi-Fi.

16MP sensor seems dated. Tracking focus slows speed to 4fps. 4K video not easily accessible. 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 is the biggest upgrade. Other changes—improved ergonomics, faster processing and focus, and better results when shooting in automatic mode—are...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review

 

The E-M10 Mark III offers casual shooters a modern camera with a classic design.

Decent 16MP images ; Five-axis internal stabilization ; Compact, lightweight ; Built-in EVF

Same sensor as E-M10 Mark II ; Autofocus isn’t great for moving subjects ; Image quality lags behind APS-C peers

Call us underwhelmed. The Mark III is a good camera for stills, but suffers when it comes to fast-moving action and video, mainly due to less-than-stellar autofocus performance. The contrast detect system simply can’t keep up with the competition. That...

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 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 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.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review: Ideal for amateurs?

 

Overall, the OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a decent mirrorless camera for the price. The autofocus, video and design improvements are all welcome. However,

Great retro style ; Autofocus improvements ; Decent image quality ; Lots of Micro Four thirds lenses to access and grow into your photography ; 4K video capture

A modest update over the Mark II model ; Still no 20MP sensor ; Plastic top/bottom plates ; Complex menu system is tricky to navigate ; No mic/headphones ports

If you're seeking a good-looking interchangeable lens mirrorless camera that can capture great shots in reasonable lighting conditions, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III does a great job. We took it out on a number of fishing trips, a week-long holiday,...

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...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

 

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

Over-simplified in-camera raw conversion ; Less reliable autofocus with moving subjects ; Sensor dated compared to APS-C competitors

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is simple to use for first-time camera buyers while being capable enough for enthusiasts – and features lots of clever features that you won’t find anywhere else. This makes it one of the best cameras on the market at...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review

  (Rating Hidden)

More of an update than a completely new camera, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a mid-range mirrorless camera that aims to top the previous two models in this series. It's compact and produces great photos, but what's it like to use on a daily...
