The silver Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera is a compact, ergonomically-designed camera featuring a 16.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and high-speed performance. The combination of these two technologies enables a high sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600 and continuous shooting up to 8 fps. The sensor also lends itself to an enhanced FAST autofocus system that utilizes a contrast-detection focusing method to efficiently acquire focus with selectable focus areas for even greater precision. Also benefitting image sharpness is in-body three-axis image stabilization that compensates for angular shifts and rolling camera shake.

Both a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and tilting touchscreen monitor are available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation. The EVF features a 1,440k-dot resolution and 1.15x magnification for comfortable eye-level viewing with the ability to preview image effects in real-time. Alternatively, the 3.0" 1,037k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD monitor can tilt upward 80° or downward 50° to suit working from high and low angles and its touchscreen design provides an intuitive means for controlling settings and navigating through the menu system. For refined off-board control and image sharing, built-in wireless connectivity is available and, when paired with the Olympus Image Share app for iOS and Android mobile devices, remote sharing and control over the camera is possible.

16.1MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VII Image Processor
The 16.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor, with Fine Detail Processing II, work in concert to enable high-resolution still imagery, full HD video recording, and notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. The combination of these two technologies also helps to promote high-speed performance throughout the camera system, including a top shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. with a mechanical shutter, a continuous shooting rate up to 8 fps with single-shot AF, and continuous 3.5 fps shooting with continuous autofocus.

Additionally, full HD 1080p movie recording is supported at 30 fps with stereo sound in either the MOV or AVI format. Simultaneous shooting, up to 5 fps, is also possible in P/A/S/M modes at 5.8MP resolution, without interrupting the movie recording.
In-Camera 3-Axis Image Stabilization
In-body VCM (Voice Coil Motor) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements that become especially noticeable when working with telephoto shots, macro imagery, and long exposures. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across three axes, versus the conventional two axes, and compensates for vertical and horizontal shifts (yaw and pitch) as well as camera shake along the optical axis (roll). This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively.
Electronic Viewfinder and 3.0" Tilting Touchscreen
For eye-level viewing, a bright 1,440k-dot electronic viewfinder is integrated into the design and features an automatic eye-detect function, 0.007 sec. display lag time, and 1.15x magnification. This finder enables realistic, high resolution viewing in a comfortable position that is especially beneficial when working in bright conditions. The adaptive brightness settings also enable easier viewing in different lighting conditions, with the brightness being set according to surrounding conditions to better simulate the use of an optical viewfinder.

In addition to the viewfinder, a large 3.0" 1,037k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD monitor is also available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation. The monitor's design can tilt 80° upward and 50° downward, making it well-suited to use from both high and low angles. The intuitive touchscreen control offers a range of additional functionality, too, including the ability to touch to release the shutter, select the focusing point, magnify the image, apply filter effects, and navigate through images and settings.
FAST Autofocus System
Benefitting the quickened shooting performance of the E-M10, a contrast-detection focusing method employs 81 AF areas to quickly and accurately acquire focus. Aptly named, FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) is able to home in on subjects using single-shot or continuous focusing methods, as well as AF tracking to benefit working with moving subjects. In addition to standard Small Target and Group Target focusing areas, Super Spot AF can also be used to acquire focus in a smaller, more refined area for critical accuracy.

When working with manual focus, focus peaking and manual focus assist functions are available to simplify attaining precise sharpness, which is especially useful when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
Built-In Wireless Connectivity
By using the Olympus Image Share app, wireless control of the E-M10 is possible through using linked iOS and Android mobile devices. The mobile device can be used to preview compositions, choose a specific AF point, and release the shutter via the intuitive app interface. Linking of mobile devices to the camera is possible through an intuitive QR Code Connect system, which displays a unique QR code on the camera's monitor which can then be recognized by a mobile device for instant linking.
Other Camera Features
  • Constructed from metal, the camera body features retro-inspired design with easily-accessible 2 x 2 dial controls for streamlined adjustment over camera settings.
  • A built-in pop-up flash is available for additional illumination and supports wireless flash control within four channels and four groups.
  • The Color Creator feature allows for adjusting hue and chroma directly in the EVF with results visible in real-time. This, coupled with an intuitive GUI, permits more finite and exacting control over the color balance of an image.
  • Fine Detail II technology automatically corrects for chromatic aberration based on the specific lens in use. Natural-appearing high-resolution quality is attained by applying intelligent sharpening techniques based on the lens' focal length and aperture value being used.
  • HDR Preview emulates the finalized look of an HDR image in the viewfinder prior to the camera processing the images together, allowing greater control and selectivity over how extended dynamic range images are taken. HDR photos are possible with up to a 12 EV-wide range of bracketed shots.
  • 12 Art Filters are available for creatively enhancing imagery and movies: Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Light Color, Light Tone, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama, Cross Process, Gentle Sepia, Dramatic Tone, Key Line, and WaterColor. 7 Art Effects are also available: Soft Focus Effect, Pin-Hole Effect, White Edge Effect, Frame Effect, Star Light Effect, Diorama Effect, Pict. Tone (Sepia, Blue, Purple, Green).
  • Photo Story allows recording of a scene from multiple viewpoints, which are then composited into a single image using a range of pre-defined formats and themes.
  • Interval shooting permits sequential recording of 1-999 shots, with 1 second to 24 hour intervals, to easily shoot a series of consecutive photos. Furthermore, the series of images can be converted to a time-lapse movie for more simplified playback.
  • Live Bulb and Live Time modes allows you to view the progression of exposure during bulb and time exposure in real-time and a live view histogram shows how the exposure is built-up across all points of the image.
  • Live Composite Mode allows you to intuitively capture star-scapes and other long exposures in real time.
  • Multiple Exposure shooting allows for the stacking of sequential exposures within the same frame for creative results.
  • Face Detect, Face Priority, and Eye Detection allow you to select different priorities for basing focus and exposure on. Up to eight separate faces can be detected and Eye Detection allows you to select either the right or left eye to prioritize.
  • A built-in level gauge aids in creating perfectly level compositions based on the horizon and architectural elements within the scene.
  • Picture Modes: i-Enhance, Vivid, Natural, Muted, Portrait, Monotone, Custom, e Portrait, Color Creator, and Art Filters.

    This is one amazing piece of engineering. I used to use a Nikon D7100 for serious shooting, Fuji X-10 to carry everywhere, and an IPhone 5S in a pinch. I was looking for something more portable than the D7100 and with more creative control than the X-10. I nearly bought the Fuji X-T1 but when I learned that it was difficult to control the focus points, that was ruled out. I was hesitant to go with any micro 4/3 until the EM-10 came out. Since purchasing this I have not had the desire to use the D7100 or the X-10 and rarely use the IPhone. Below are the pros and cons. It gets four stars rather than five only because of performance in sports and action photography.

    Pros:
    1) Small size: the camera is so incredibly small yet so usable. It is actually smaller than the X-10. It's like having a miniature DSLR in your pocket. It easily fits in your coat pocket or suit jacket pocket with the power zoom lens. All the lenses are very small and can fit in your coat pocket.
    2) Design: The controls and menu system is great. I never could get use to the controls on the D7100 and the controls on the EM-10 are so intuitive and user friendly. I mainly shoot full manual and I can quickly control aperture and shutter speed with the command dials and access the ISO and white balance to control with the two command dials. It also has auto ISO in full manual which is great.
    3) Focus points: There are 81 focus points throughout the screen that are easily controlled by the directional dial. Whenever you press the direction dial it will control the direction of the focus point. Nothing else needs to be done. I know of no other camera that has this feature or that can control focus point so easily. That is reason alone to purchase this cameral for me. The D7100 had 51 focus point that were all bunched up in the center.
    4) Electronic view finder (EVF): If you have never tried an EVF, please do so. After using an EVF, I could never go back to an optical view finder (OVF). The image quality is so much better, bigger and brighter then with D7100 OVF. What you see is what you get. The exposure and white balance changes that you make are reflected in the EVF. There is no guesswork in the exposure. You rarely have to rely in the light meter. You can also play back photos in the EVF. Even in the brightest outdoor lighting you can playback the photos in the EVF.
    5) The tilting touch screen: This feature is to die for. No longer do you have to lie on the ground to get a creative shot. You flip out the touch screen and tap the screen with your finger where you want the photo focus and exposed. While I prefer to use the EVF when possible, this really comes in handy for the hard to get shots. The focus is also blazing fast.
    6) Video with image capture: DSLR's are terrible for video. The live view is awful and the autofocus is noisy. Not with camera. The focus is spot on and totally silent. Best of all, you can do completely silent image capture while recording video. No longer do you have to choose between video and photo. You can snap away during video and nail great pictures very fast.
    7) Easy access to advanced features: Custom white balance, HDR, bracketing and multiple exposure are so easy to use and much better than the D7100. It would take to long to explain each one. For custom white balance, you just point it a white sheet of patient, snap a picture and your done. You now have perfect white balance during difficult lighting.
    8) Low light performance: In my opinion this camera is superior in low light to the APS-C D7100. As far as I am concerned, it is very good up to ISO 6,400 and totally usable up to 10,000. Most reviews would disagree with me, but unless you are pixel peeping and cropping, that's been my experience.
    9) Auto focus: The singe auto focus is blazing fast and accurate.
    10) Menus system: While not necessarily intuitive, it is logical, easy to use, easy to learn and easy to access. The manual is good.
    11) Built in image stabilization: It works
    12) Lenses: Multiple great lenses to choose from. Excellent fast prime lenses. The 14 – 42 mm pancake power zoom with built in lens cap is so incredibly convenient. You have to see it to believe it.
    13) Image quality: With the prime lenses the image quality is equal to or better than the D7100. With the kit lenses the image quality is good, but not on par with the D7100 using my Tamron 28 – 75/f2.8 and 70 – 300 mm. Not a fair comparison though.
    14) JPEGS: The JPEGs are so good that you hardly need any post-processing.
    15) Manual focus peeking: I rarely use it, but it is a nice feature.
    16) Small lens diameter: Because the lenses are so small you can shoot through a chain fence at a little league baseball game.
    17) Design: I like the retro DSLR look and feel.

    Cons:
    1) Continuous auto-focus and auto-focus tracking: READ THIS CAREFULLY. This camera does not focus in the same way as a DSLR. Contrast detection is different from phase detection. This is important when it comes shooting sports or children playing. Faces do not have a lot of contrast and if you focus on a face of children playing the camera may focus on the background. This is not important with portrait photography, but with people at a distance it is a real problem. There is a way around this, though. You have to pick to smallest focus point. Go to the focus point menu. At the bottom left of the screen you can control focus point size and face detection. Select the smallest focus point size, the camera DOES NOT come set this way and you won't easily find it in the manual. Also select the large superfine JPEG (check the manual). You have to go into the menu system to do this. Most important, focus on shirts and not faces. Shirts have a lot more contrast and you will get better results.
    a. The autofocus tracking works, but is unreliable. Nowhere on par with a DSLR. Best avoid using it if possible.
    b. The continuous autofocus works pretty well, but you can't see the focus point in the screen when taking multiple shots at either 3 FPS or 8 FPS. With the D7100 the focus point were also lit up red, in the EM-10 it lights up green once and not again. The focus point is otherwise so faint you really cant see where it is. You have to just put it in the center of the screen for action and keep the subject in the center of the screen.
    c. For fast moving sports there is a noticeable delay between what you see and what is actually occurring. Keep this in mind and adjust accordingly.
    2) Sports lenses: While there are numerous lenses to choose from, not so for action photography. The only really good option is 40 – 140 Panasonic or 40 – 150 mm Olympus. They are OK, but they are inexpensive kit lenses. There is a 35 – 100 f2.8 Panasonic, but that is not enough range for me. Olympus will be coming out with 40 – 150 f2.8 later this year, which should solve this problem.
    3) Bokeh: A little less than an APS-C
    4) Does not have quiet or silent mode for photography. The shutter release is little loud, so not ideal for street photography.

    Conclusions: Amazing camera, small and convenient, great low light performance, image quality on par with a DSLR, excellent controls and functionality, attractive design, great lenses. Does not excel and sports and action photography, but is adequate.

    I purchased the E-M10 along with the 12mm f2.0, 45mm f1.8, and 75mm f1.8 and the ECG-1 grip. After putting it through its paces for a few days, I came to the conclusion that while I really liked the image quality and overall feature set, the camera body was simply too small for large my hands. Guess I had spent too many years getting used to a SLR-sized body. The buttons on the E-M10 seemed tiny and cramped. Accessing them was rather tedious. Even with the optional grip, I found I was holding the camera moreso in my fingers than in my hands. This proved to be a less stable way of holding it and increased image blur. And by the way, the image stabilization system in the camera worked great, it's just that it becomes less effective as camera movement increases. For persons with smaller hands and shorter fingers, these size issues may not prove to be an obstacle. So, I returned the E-M10 body and grip and ordered the E-M1 body and HLD-7 battery grip, hoping that its larger body would make handling more comfortable. But alas, although it was definitely larger and more comfortable to hold, my hands still engulfed it. Sadly, I ended up having to return the entire system.For now, I'll continue with my 4/3 system (E-5 with assorted lenses). After several years of constant use, it still performs great. While others may consider a DSLR to be a relatively large/heavy, I personally like the size and heft when compared to these two smaller M4/3 units.

    If you don't want to carry an SLR on vacation then this is the camera for you. Very good image quality, with all the features you need and you can carry it in a waistpack. I've used Nikon and Canon DSLR's in the past and this camera delivers equal quality in a much friendlier package. Highly recommended.

          Comments about OM-D E-M10 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only, Black):

          I bought the Olympus OM-D E-M10 because it has become increasingly difficult for me to lug around my Nikon D5100 (with Sigma 18-50 f.2.8) when I am on vacation and walking around taking pictures. My wife and I do a great deal of travel and I decided I needed a smaller, lighter camera. The Olympus fits the bill admirably. In addition to its size and weight advantage comparted to the Nikon, it is easier to use. The Olympus with the accessory grip fits my hand well. The controls are, for the most part, perfectly placed and operation is intuitive, especially the use of the two control knobs with one taller than the other. The only exception is the button for live view, which is placed in such a way the my fat finger has a hard time pushing it. Settings are easy to make using the touch screen display.
          The EVF is easy to see and I really like the fact that any changes made to the photo environment are displayed in real time. For example, when I was taking pictures at a concert by available light and the metering was making the subject too light, I simply dialed the exposure compensation to get the look I wanted. The resulting pictures (taken with a Tamron 14-150 f/3.5-5.6, see separate review) were sharp with no discernable noise at ISO 1600. Image stabalization works well.
          The autofocus is rapid under low light, with a bit of hunting when aimed at a flat surface, and virtually instantaneous in good light. There is no discernable shutter lag, which is a good thing as lag would be a deal breaker for me. I spent too many years using rangefinder and non-digital SLRs. I like the automatic recognition of faces by the autofocus when taking portraits or photos of a small group.
          Overall, this is a very well designed and usable camera. It is very versatile, and I only just begun to explore all its capabilities. I have yet to try the video, but it appears to be so easy to do video recording that I will get to it sometime soon. I know it does not have all the bells and whistles of the top of the line, but I do not think it can be beaten in terms of value for the money.

          Had this unit for about a month now. I am coming to this camera as a long-time Nikon user. I purchased the E-m10 and the Oly 25mm 1.8 and the 14-42MM EZ kit for a trip abroad. I find great joy using this camera. The touch screen, the focus peaking, the WIFI - it all just WORKS, and works well. The image quality is excellent, and I'm smiling every time I pick the Oly up.

          Needed a light weight system for bird and wildlife photography as a standard DSLR system is now too heavy. The Olympus is great. With their lens and this body I have more flexibility at half the weight. The EVF is fantastic.

          Comments about OM-D E-M10 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only, Black):

          My main camera is a Canon 5DM3, and I also shoot with Sony a7r and a6000. I got this camera for my kid since she wanted to take pictures. I thought it would be good for her small hands. I was showing her how to use the camera, but I fell in love with it... Not again...

          The following are the advantages of this camera:
          1. Fast AF
          2. Images are sharp
          3. Small lenses
          4. Light weight

          The following are the things I don't like:
          1. No "Q" button

          The Q button makes life simply by allowing to change important setting in a flash. The function buttons are very limited since there are only 2 of them.
          I know my kid (10 years old) is not going to change settings like that yet, so it will work for her for now.
          This camera will be great for people who are coming from point and shoot cameras. I think it needs more direct buttons for advanced photographers (at least for me). But again, the images are mad crazy sharp!!!

          Comments about OM-D E-M10 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only, Black):

          I purchased this camera to use on a European trip to Rome, Italy and Greece. After experimenting with my Canon 6D, Canon 24-105mm and the Canon 8-15mm and Canon 600EX flash in a Think Tank City Walker 20 bag I really thought long and hard about touring around Italy and Greece carrying all that equipment on my shoulder. This camera was the answer. I purchased this model instead of the Om-D 1 because comparing the two cameras there was so little difference. I saved myself about $ which I put toward the Pro 12-40mm 2.8 lens. I should have purchased this camera in the beginning. It is fantastic. The quality of the images and the features of the camera are perfect for travel. One lens and maybe a flash...not necessary to purchase the flash. The focus points, the low light capability, and the artistic choices in the menu are incredible. I would recommend getting the grip...it will help stabilize the camera in your hands. The camera features are not complex to learn. However, you will need to refer to the instructions...for example, I changed the focus points and wanted to get back to the full array. I had to read the simple process to do that...it is not intuitive. Once you master the basics you will love the feel of the camera and certainly the resulting photos. Buy an extra battery (not the Olympus, but the Watson...much cheaper and the same battery)...also consider getting the Watson portable charger--the charger that comes with the camera is bulky and requires a lengthy cord (provided). This is not very portable when traveling.

          Comments about OM-D E-M10 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only, Silver):

          I rented this camera, along with the 12-40mm, F2.8 lens for a week and discovered quickly why reviewers rave about this camera. After testing it throughly, I ordered my own E-M-10 and the 12-40mm lens. I also bought the Fotodiox body grip, the camera is small and this allows you to hold it better. This grip is cheaper than the Olypus and has a cut out in the botton to get to the battery and SD card. I would suggest renting this camera for a week and take it for a test drive before you buy. Reviews on the internet can only be taken with a grain of salt including mine. Spoiler alert, the Olympus menu system is not logical and there is a steep learning curve. After a couple of weeks, I'm still learning, nothing is intutive but you can customize functions which helps. It's easy to use once you learn the system but you really need to study your owners manual if you want to get the maxiumum performance of this camera. I have owned Pentax digital cameras, the K10 and now the K5. Unlike Olympus, Pentax cameras are button and dial driven functions. I got spoiled with the Pentax system which doesn't require digging through menus. I wanted the Olympus because of the 12-40F2.8 lens which I reviewed separately. It's lighter, than the Pentax 16-50mm F2.8 lens. I believe in buying the best glass you can afford and put the rest of your money on a lesser expensive body, hence I didn't buy the Em-1 or Em5. I'm using the Olympus for travel and street photography and when I go hiking.

          Olympus knows how to make mirrorless m4/3 cameras. As I am casual photographer (really beginner), I researched cameras for a few months and finally decided on this one.

          Likes:
          -fast AF
          -lightweight
          -easy manual controls

          Dislikes:
          -battery life is meh
          -depending on size of hands, may not be easy to hold (get the ECG-1 grip)

          Comments about OM-D E-M10 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only, Black):

          Finding this camera culminates my long search for a customizable compact camera as a replacement for my showing-its-age Nikon D50. The previous generation of compact cameras had too much auto (focus, exposure, ISO, etc.) for my taste with most of the interesting options buried in the menus. The Olympus OM-D E-M10, along with a generation of mirrorless cameras, reverses the trend with enough dials and a huge range of customizations. In spot metering, the live histogram shows both the whole scene (white histogram) and center (overlaid green histogram), making it easy to do Zone System style exposure control. The focus peaking and magnification allows for easier focusing in low light that my old DSLR. Unlike the Fujifilm mirrorless cameras, with their stiff shutter speed dial, the Olympus dials are smooth and allow for quick adjustment.

          In my usual operation, the top dials are set to aperture and shutter speed, with the top three buttons for HDR, manual focus/autofocus, and 'Myset2', effectively an auto-everything mode in case an unexpected and transient photo opportunity presents itself. Olympus's very clever 'myset' modes allow for switching between completely different set of options, including autoexposure, center vs spot exposure weighting, face detection, and an incredibly range of other possibilities.

              I was pleasantly presented with an incredible array of shooting options I had not seen before. This beauty is small and fun to take everywhere but big in options. I'm using it with the EZ 14-42 3.5-5.6 lens which behaves like a retractable point and shoot lens camera, hence again it's portability. This will be my go to camera and I most certainly recommend you review for purchase before you buy anything else. It just has everything and does it all well!

                        I am a hobbyist photographer. I bought this camera to compliment my Fuji X100. I needed an ILC after I sold my DSLR last winter. I have been watching the great strides made in the micro 4/3 world and was ready to try an Olympus. I liked the E-M5 price point but wanted something newer that wouldn't be out dated. Behold the E-M10!I bought the 12-40 Pro lens as a all around use since I already have my X100 for the prime 35mm equivalent. I spent my first evening trying to figure out the quirky menus and settings. I was able to get out the second day and capture some great shots. I am impressed with the Oly color rendering. When sufficient light is available focus is very accurate, but performance in low light is not as good as my Fuji IMO. The autofocus is really fast! I like the feel of the controls and I find that without the grip the camera still fits my hands well. With the pro lens it is a little off balance though.
