Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review


The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is the third camera in the company's OM-D range and represents another tier in the lineup - sitting below the E-M5 and the even more expensive E-M1. It uses the same 16 megapixel Four Thirds sensor as the E-M5, though doesn't...

E-M5 image quality in smaller, lighter body ; Built-in dual-axis level gauge ; In-body IS works with all lenses ; Dual control wheels and customizable buttons ; Wi-Fi connectivity and remote shooting ; Tilting LCD useful for video and tripod work ; Raw...

Default JPEG processing tends to muddy fine detail at ISO 3200 and above ; Useful interface features hidden at default ; Video quality is mediocre as details are somewhat soft ; Can't combine histogram, highlight/shadow warnings etc. on the same...

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is positioned as the entry-level OM-D camera, though it's just as capable in most ways as its more advanced siblings. It borrows the E-M5's impressive imaging capabilities, without the weatherproofing, and adds built-in Wi-Fi....

Olympus OM-D E-M10 review


The $1,399 body-only OM-D E-M1 is a major hit for Olympus, as it tries to remain a force in the mirrorless camera market against Sony, Samsung, Fujifilm, et al. To keep the party going, the company just introduced a stripped down, much lower-priced...

High-quality 16MP stills ; Compact, lightweight ; Built-in flash

Relatively high priced ; Touchscreen not very responsive

The E-M10 isn’t better than cameras that have larger APS-C sensors and cost less, but for Olympus Micro Four Thirds fans, they will be pleased with the fine photographs.

Olympus OM-D E-M10


The entry-level mirrorless OM-D E-M10 is another winner in Olympus' OM-D series. Its image quality, speedy performance, and built-in EVF earn it Editors' Choice honors.

Fast focus and burst shooting. Good image quality at high ISO. In-body image stabilization. Tilting touch-screen display. Built-in EVF and flash. Integrated Wi-Fi

Not weather-sealed. Lacks accessory port and mic input. No 60p video support

Olympus has brought out an entry-level camera in its enthusiast-targeted OM-D line. This model, dubbed the OM-D E-M10 ($699.99 direct, body only), comes in at the lowest price point for an OM-D yet. It shares many of the features of the 16-megapixel...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review


Olympus OM-D E-M10 review: the new E-M10 boasts all of the key features from the original OM-D at a more affordable price and in a smaller body. Angela Nicholson puts it to the test.

Olympus OM-D E-M10


...and baby OM-D makes three.

When Olympus told us the price of the E-M10, we were a bit beside ourselves. On paper, $700 isn't a mindblowing deal, but holding the new OM-D in your hands is an entirely different proposition. This model feels every bit as premium as the other two...

A more affordable OM-D with most of the E-M5's features

Expert review by:

Olympus OM-D E-M10


Olympus offers a top-quality CSC at an entry-level price

Has features from premium OM-D siblings ; Excellent low-light performance ; Great DSLR styling ; Superb auto white balance (AWB)

Dynamic range a tad poor ; Only 3-axis stabilisation ; Tendency to oversharpen JPEGS

Finally, the E-M10 carries the 17.3 x 13mm, 16-million-pixel four thirds live CMOS sensor found in the OM-D E-M5, coupled with the TruPic VII Image processor taken from Olympus’s flagship OM-D E-M1.
